You've put this in Fishnet, you'd probably get more answers if you asked MNHQ to move it.

Hope your cat's better soon smile

By way of background, my boy clearly hurt himself somewhere in his shoulder/leg/paw area in June - he was holding up his paw and really grumpy. The vet couldn't find anything wrong and an anti-inflammatory made all the difference.

At the beginning of September, he had a week of holding up his paw again and it stopped. He's been doing it again for about 10 days now. He seems happy enough this time, as far as I can tell his paw seems okay and he doesn't seem stiff. Still climbing up/jumping off fences, coming through cat flap etc. Just wondered if anyone had any other ideas. Originally I thought of a problem with his claws or arthritis, but I would expect stiffness if the latter.

Anyway, hubby is leaving me with the car mid week so I will phone for a vet's appointment.
