Help cat is sore...:(

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So I need some fellow cat-ers advice.

My cat is a 13 yr old female, she was absolutely fine yesterday morning, early this morning when my bf got up. However when i got up she was walking around very funny - her tail (which is normally straight in teh air) was almost tucked between her legs. And her back was a tad bit arched too. She's also been quite lethargic today and has a tough time finding a comfortable spot. Liek she doesn't want to put a lot of pressure on her hind end.

She has always been a talker, but she's being a little bit more vocal that normal especially when i'm touching her base of her tail/in between her back legs - that general area.

Has anyone had these symptoms on a cat?

I know it's not a cat bite - she hasn't been outside nor are there cats in teh house.
I don't beleive anything is broken because i've palpated her.
I also don't think it's a urinary tract infection because i haven't seen her squating at all.

She's not in so much pain that I need to take her to emergency right now, but I'd like to know if she'll just get over it or if it is an emergency and can't wait until tomarrow.

thanks for any help

Cats usually dont show any pain untill they are really in distress and it sounds like your cat could be. I would ring up the vet. Is she eating or drinking? It sounds like something is wrong and I would be a little worried waiting.

I don't know what is possibly wrong with her, but I would get her to a vet as soon as u can. Good luck, and let us know.

I can't be much help other than to suggest a vet visit. As april31 said, cats are experts at hiding pain. By the time we notice it, it is usually more advanced. Please let us know what you find out. Good luck to both of you

I would get her checked by your vet ASAP. Somethings wrong. I wonder if it might be a anal gland problem?

My first two thoughts are possibly an arthritis flare up or constipation. I would make an appointment to have her checked out.
