How old is your cat ?

Kick it.

Vyger & yokozuna gave excellent advice.
Cats sometimes also eat inappropriate objects which will mess up their systems and require medical intervention. If kitty is acting unwell, he/she needs a vet. I noticed by your profile that you are too young to hold a regular job. Your parents may be willing to pay for a vet visit as an early birthday/other occasion gift. You could also ask if it would be possible to work off kitty's vet bill by doing extra chores around the house that you would normally be paid for. Or offer to "pay it forward" by doing something good for someone else. Parents tend to appreciate thoughtfulness.

You beat me to it, well done.


lemonie is who originally found that wonderful  Monty Python
"Confuse-A-Cat" healing video presented above.  
If it, the video tickles your fancy or whatever you call your cat, then
the Best Answer should rightly go to lemonie for disposing
of your cat problem :-)


This is the best free advice out there.




find out why - If the cat isn't ill or dead then it's eating elsewhere.

Just because you don't see it drinking doesn't mean that its not. It might have found somewhere it likes better. Some of my cats love the water in the bottom of the tub after someone takes a shower. They wait at the door and rush in so they can jump in. One jumped into a tub half full one time.
Bigger question is if the other end is working. Is it still using its litter box? If the answer is yes then its getting food somewhere else.

If the answer is no then you might have a problem. Poison is a possibility. Cats love antifreeze and it will kill them if they drink it. The new stuff has a bitter taste added to it to try and keep animals out of it.
Need more info, and play detective to find out just what is going on before you panic.

Provide more information and/or take it to a veterinarian. As previously commented in the answers section medical advice is usually worth what you pay for it.
