    Hi there all new to this but could do with some help from you please! My 6 year old cat has spent the last few days lowering her back legs and bum right to the ground as she sniffs around and then flinches quite violently every few seconds. I thought she might have a problem with eyes but after a couple of not very scientific tests i dont think its that!! She is eating and enjoying attention but now doesnt seem keen to go outside. Any ideas would be great! Many thanks:)

    Could be cystitis. One of mine acted similar when he had it.

    What do you feed?

    Do you feed dried only?

    Does she drink sufficiently?

    Its very odd. Id be inclined to have her checked by a vet. Sounds like she could be in pain.
