3 month female kitten cries & not walking properly

by Lou
(florida,tallahassee)

My 3 month old female kitten has not been fixed yet and never plays anymore, when she walks she seems in pain, she is not showing symptoms of urinary tract infection, she sleeps, eats minimal amount of dry cat food, poops,wees, drinks water and cries when i pick her up. we cannot figure out what is wrong with her. she shivvers aswell, coudl be from cold, she is not scared. when she was born she use to play with her brother sibling and was very active, now it seems as though something is wrong,do you have any idea what it could be? she seems skinny,her belly is soft when i touch her and she stays under the blanket all day. she was nursed by her own mother,whom we still have. could it be that she has been picked up too much? she is in pain in some way, cause i cannot pick her up at all, she screams. looks like the back side of her body is kind of bent while she is walking aswell, it looks very weak.my cats stay indoors, i never let them out.

any help or advice for Molly would be appreciated x thank you.

Hi Lou
have you taken her to the vet yet? I ask as her symptoms definitely suggest that she needs to have treatment of some sort even if it just pain relief.

As to what could be the problem well it is almost impossible to say, she may have fallen badly, she may have a birth defect, she may have been accidentally kicked. Whatever it is she needs treatment to help her.

I hope her condition can be sorted out soon

best wishes Kate
