Basically, I went on holiday for a week and my friends were catsitting for me...my cat Gigi is a diva and I’ve had her since she was a kitten...I’m a bit unsure of her age but think she is either 11 or 12 years old. Anyways, they phoned me on the Saturday telling me that she had a weird sort of limp and it had happened overnight. She’d been fine with her eating and her overall behaviour hadn’t really changed. They monitored her until I was back yesterday and said there had been improvement as she’d gotten up the stairs. I decided I’d keep an eye on her as soon as I got home because she is a mummy’s girl and is very attached to me. Her leg is weird, it’s kind of like she’s dragging it a bit and cannot put pressure on it and it’s just the one back leg. When I touch the leg she doesn’t miaow or hiss at me to instigate she’s in any pain. There’s no lump or swelling or cut and I don’t think it’s her nails that are causing a problem. So first off I think it’s a sprain, maybe she’s tried to jump onto something and fallen and sprained her leg? The leg doesn’t seem paralysed just like she doesn’t want to use it. She still can jump onto the couch and the bed and get up the stairs. She’s just adapted to it with her leg. She’s not acting any different than usual. Very loving with me still, won’t leave my side. Loves to sit with me and on my lap and loves a cuddle. Doesn’t seem to want to be on her own. But then today she’s not eating as much which has worried me further as my friends had told me she was eating fine even when this problem occurred with her leg. She seems to turn her nose up at her food. And she did manage to have a bit of chicken today and she drank tons of water. But when I put her wet food down she walked over to her bowl, smelt it and walked off again so I’m a bit confused. When I googled it it said if they’ve sprained something they’ll be put off their food so maybe it’s to do with that?plus the weather is really hot at moment and I know that can add to it. Also just to add on she’s been in the cat litter box and done a bit of runny poop (I know lovely just thought I’d mention it ???) just at least want her to be eating properly again. My friends described it as like her leg had gone to sleep just for reference... anyways thanks for reading and if anyone can help in anyway with some advice/tips and maybe put my mind at ease.
