hi there. i have a 2yr old cat. one day, she was limping with one of her legs. i don't know why. i don't see any bites or anything. this actually happened twice. looks like she was trying to shake her leg when that happens, she will pause for awhile and as she started shaking her legs it came good and she walks straight again.. why does this happen? is this rheumatism or something?


Answer by Kate
Hi well it is impossible to say for sure, but yes she may have pain in that leg caused by arthritis of something similar although this is more prevalent in older cats

However she may have fallen on it awkwardly and twisted the leg or caused bruising.

If it continues for more than a few days i would consider taking her to see a vet in case there is some damage or pain in that area.

best wishes Kate

Thanks Kate!

Me and bubbles went to the vet today and they suggested to do an xray on her leg tomorrow. She must have twisted her leg, and we will find that out tomorrow.

Cheers!
