I do not know what is wrong with my little Bailey cat, but he came in yesterday morning looking very "off." When I picked him up he growled at me, unusual as he is a very mellow kitty. I have completely looked him over for a bite mark or puncture wound, but haven't found a thing? There is no heat on his body anywhere that I can find, and he seems to be a bit tender in his chest area. As this is the kitty that routinely plays in the horse stall and jumps on and off the roof of the barn, I am thinking he has perhaps fallen and landed wrong. He is not eating, unless I force feed him, but he is drinking water. He has no temperature, and his resps are slow, but not alarming. If he doesn't start eating on his own by tomorrow, I will take him into the vet. He moves fine across the floor, except after a few steps he arches his back and stretches his back legs like he is stretching from a nap. Would you please say a prayer for Bailey that he starts eating soon on his own. I am very worried about him right now.
