Sick cat

Post by Ginab72 » Wed Jan 10, 2018 10:33 pm

Hi my little cat has stopped eating and for some reason not being herself. She can't get on the couch or climb on anything she usually gets on she seems to be having trouble with her back end. Does any one know what may be the cause I am taking her to vets in the morning but I'm worried sick

Hi and welcome. So sorry your little girl isn’t well. Not sure what could be wrong but good that you’re taking her to the vet and sure they will find out. Do let us know how you get on.

It could be as simple as a muscle spasm - I would keep her calm and comfortable and not let her attempt to jump until you can get her to the vet . I hope you get good news soon.

Update on my poor little cat, Dragon has been kept in the vets they think someone may have kicked her or hit her with a car or something. They are going to operate on her tomorrow :( will keep every one updated.

I am so very sorry. Sometimes there is simply nothing even the vet can do...
