So I have an answer, Walter has pancreatitis. In cats it's a chronic not an acute version of pancreatitis. Antiemetics, antibiotics and pain meds are in order. I am bringing him back in to the vet tonight to get everything started.

That's too bad Twyla - but at least you have a diagnosis so you can treat him.

Happy had this and after a day at the vet, he recovered quickly. It is traumatizing to see. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

That would certainly explain - and excuse - his grumpiness. I hope he feels better soon, it is a horrible condition.

I am glad you have an answer even if not a wonderful one. I think I said earlier that my vet thinks lots of cats have low grade, chronic pancreatitis because of their anatomy in that part of the digestive tract. It sounds like you are already seeing a bit of progress overnight. I hope things continue to improve well.

Glad to hear that Walter is feeling better.

My sister's cat, Jack, was diagnosed at age 4 with pancreatitis. He lived to age 17. There were a few times, especially in his last 2 years, that managing his disease was a huge challenge, but some of that was also related to his age. He lived a long and very happy life.

Wish you and Walter well.
