Q. My cat meowed very loud that woke me,eyes seemed to be looking up at top of wall with head tilled back. Acting like never seen, scared me. Help

A. What is the vaccination status of your cat? I recently saw an unvaccinated cat develop Distemper who displayed similar signs. It will be difficult to diagnose without a more in depth exam, so I would take to the veterinarian if you see similar behavior again .
