Cat found on surge protector
(Morningside, MD, USA)
My mom found my cat wrapped around the surge protector beneath the table. He's mewing in a weird way and is hardly moving, but we don't know what's wrong. Please, does anyone know what could have happened or what we can do to help him?
Considering your cat’s location, there is a possibility that he is suffering from an electrical shock. Cats that have been shocked are at risk for pulmonary edema, fluid in his lungs, and seizures among many other things. Please take your cat to a veterinarian immediately!
This is not meant to be harsh, but is intended to be potentially life-saving for your cat and other cats around the world. Please read this page about feline illness symptoms to learn what normal and not normal is for a cat, and to better understand what constitutes a veterinary emergency. I receive many questions from readers similar in nature to your question, and the time that is lost in writing to me could unfortunately mean the difference between life and death for your kitty.
