    Ok so I am being so strict with her at the moment...as you know xrays were ok no breaks etc...
    She is still on metacam.
    Here are a few videos from the last hour after she has been confined to rest most of the day.
    Please ignore the 2 carpet stains Teddy delivered 2 hair balls earlier and I have run out of carpet stain remover!
    Anyway she was fine till she used her litter tray then limped for about 20 seconds before walking ok again.. this is so weird!
    Post litter tray


    Then back to normal

    I think perhaps getting into her litter tray and having to squat would mean putting all her weight on her back legs which might have caused her to limp for a bit when she got out. Otherwise, she looks pretty good.

    I think she looking much better. You might want to try massaging her leg and hip a bit with warmed up hands. Get well soon Matilda.

    I'd agree with Charity, she was probably limping after squatting in the tray. I think she looks pretty good in the other videos. Poor little Tildster, I hope she gets better soon.
