My cat doesn't want to go outside any more

by beryl harry

my 11 year old female cat always loved going out in the garden. now for some reason doesnt want to. stays upstairs sleeping all day.eating less sometimes goes nearly allday untill evening. i pick her up and put her out when she does come down. she doesnt venture far. only in the garden. there has been know changes indoors or out doors.she seems ok. but im so worried about her. shes my only companion. would like your opinion.

well it depend son how long this has been going on for really. If it is only a few days then she may simply be feeling a little under the weather and may need just a few days to get over it.

However if this has been happening for more than a few days then I think it would be wise to have her checked over by a vet.

her symptoms are too general to be able to make any suggestions as to what it could be. But my policy has always been that whenever our cats behavior changes significantly and lasts for more than a few days , then it is always best to have a vet take a look. If there is something wrong then the sooner it is caught the better the outcome.

Lets hope she will be feeling better soon and will be back to her old self.

best wishes kate

cat not going out

Is there a new cat in your neighborhood? My cat behaves like this when she perceives something outside to be a threat.
Last time it turned out to be a bobcat camped under the house!

Oh well

Your cat is much safer in your house. If your cat would rather be in the house then let her.
