No. What you assumed is that a qualified vet would be sitting at his/her computer 24/7, quivering in eager anticipation of receiving your query, forsaking all his/her other duties, in order to provide you with free advice within seconds, to save you the dreadful inconvenience of actually having to do anything yourself, or < gasp>  actually fork out some money.

Doesn''t work that way, though.

You''re a real honey, Lizard.

Apparently they''re REALLY good with this kind of thing in New Zealand. But before you go, please do what you ought to have done in the first place, which is take your cat to the vet.
