So, I don’t generally ever do this, but I’m to the point where I know something is wrong, and I need to do something soon lest it gets worse.
A few days ago, maybe about five or six, my cat started making noises like she was trying to throw up or cough up a hairball. She’s been known to throw up from time to time in the past, though not too often. She’s never spit up a hairball in my presence though. At first I thought nothing of it. I figured it would come up by itself and she’d be all done and right as rain.
But it didn’t get better. In fact, her little noises increased to a couple of times a day, and I started to worry what was wrong. I started looking things up, and realized she very well could be actually coughing. All sites started pointing to things like cat asthma, though I can’t imagine that being something she’d not have one day and then suddenly acquire a couple of days later. Then; I realized that she hasn’t been eating. I’ve since offered her different foods. Dry, wet, wet with some water, etc. She seems interested, but won’t actually eat. She also hasn’t been drinking (though she is interested in the water too), which is setting off more alarms. For the moment I am giving her water through a dropper/medication syringe type thing (hard to explain it’s not a needle, but you suck the liquid up by pulling back the plunger and the squirt it into their mouth).
I know this isn’t something I can just sit around on, and expect to get better. Especially because I have a feeling it’s only going to get worse and worse as time goes on. Since she’s an inside, outside cat, I assume she got into something while outside, or maybe even has allergies or something, and it’s taking a toll on her.
I’m going to be taking her to a pet clinic or vet ASAP, no matter my funds situation. However I’d like to ask for a bit of help if possible. I have bills, and I can’t exactly skimp away on them, but I also need to ensure that my cat can get treatment and I can pay for it. So, if at all possible can anyone do one of the following?

As I said, I’ll be taking her no matter what, and paying however I can. But anything would help us out.
Thank you so much in advance!
