2 year old cat limping slightly
6

Desiredeffect · 26/06/2022 02:49

My 2 year old cat goes out every day all day and comes back at night. She eats then. Sleeps and back out again. She came home earlier limping and seems very well in herself. She was fine with me inspecting her paw and nothing in her paw. She woke me up playing with my other cat and jumping on and off the bed. And scratching at ther scratch Post. It dosent seem to bother her. Any ideas please or shall I take to vet tomorrow. She's a very active cat and is in great health and been neutered etc.

I'd give it 24 hours, if it's not bothering her. And see if it improves. She may have just landed awkwardly.

This happened to one of my cats earlier this year. It turned out he needed surgery on his hips. He had fractured bones due to congenital disease. He was nearly four at the time.

I hope it's only something minor with yours op and that she's on the mend.

Update. She is absolutely fine yesterday and is no longer limping. I did contact the vet and he said keep a eye on her. She just went back outside nowamd seems very happy in herself. Thanks for the messages.
