Cat Fell Down Stairs

by Nikki

A few nights ago my cat fell down the stairs. He jumped over a baby gate and it fell, scaring him. He ran, obviously, and ended up rolling down some stairs. He has been acting a little weird and laying in odd places. I want to take him to the vet, but my husband thinks I'm over-reacting. What do you think?

Answer by Kate
It could be that he has bruised himself and is in a little discomfort. I would take him to the vets if he is having difficultly walking or if he stops eating or using the litter.
keep an eye on him and if it is only bruising then this will settle down in a day or so.
