Last night was reaaaaly cold compared to lately. I could see my breath but not so cold I couldnt be comfortable in shorts and t-shirt. I have my cat carrier on the deck...felix and the other cats like to sleep in it(odd how they hate it during the vet trip ). Everyday Felix is somewhere sleeping or hunting...(yes he is fixed). I looked everywhere worried last night since he didnt come and eat. Finally around 2am, I decided to go to bed, but that I would check the cage on last time. There he was. I reached in to pet him like usual, but he wouldnt come out. I took it inside and even tried turning it alittle downward to slide him out. Nothing. He finally came out on his own alittle while later. All he wanted to do is sleep. He layed by me and slept about an hour off and on. When I finally got him to eat, he gulped it down like he was afraid I'd take it or something. Today I was gonna take him to the vet. I woke up early and looked for him...he was nowhere around. He finally mysteriously appeared in cage again tonight and is there now. He walked out to come inside....he never meowed except when picked up...and I checked him for injures last night and tonight. I never felt any, but if I touch him on the side he lays down. Tonight I noticed a place on him left side where it looks like hes been licking his fur. All I can figure is he got hit, fell, or someone threw something at him (I live next to a paylake-my neighber doesnt like them catching fish at night). I never know where he is during the day and he comes back at night for food....he doesnt seem as hungry now and seems like he doesnt feel good cause all he wants to do is lay down and sleep. He still loves to be pet and scratched around face and purrs alot. I cant take him to the vet tommorow because they are closed...What do you think this is???Is he hurt?What could it be?What will the vet do? Am I just paranoid? I just need to know what it could be..Im really worried and cant do nothing untill first thing monday morning....Recap(sorry I know was long):eats and drinks, justs wants to lay down and sleep,wont come out of cage,has a place on fur that looks licked(no external signs),walks normal,lays down if messed with. Oh and his balls got ripped open a few months ago and I had to fix him...could a animal or dog hurt him??? Thanks for your help...
