My Kitten does not look well

by Nox

MY kitten was always very active. Lately she's been lethargic and does not come running wehen I call her (but responds by looking but doesnt move). She has also gained weight around her middle and walks slowly and unsurely and stumbles a bit. When i used to pick her up, she used to wriggle and want to run about but now she's very placid. SHe eats normally.Her rectum is a bit swollen. Her rear legs seem a bit uncoordinated. WHat should I do? I'm so worried.PLEASE HELP....

Answer by Kate
you have not said how old your kitten is and if she is spayed or not. I say this as if she is older than 4 months and not spayed then it is possible that she could be pregnant.

However I do not like the sound of the fact that you say she is unsteady on her feet. If I were you I would take her to see a vet as soon as possible. It is better to be safe than sorry I always feel.

I hope she is ok again soon

best wishes kate

Moustache acting strange
by: shelly

Moustache, male cat is sick I think

My daughters male cat who has been spayed and is about 6 years old is not being sociable like he usually is, not wanting to come inside and is not eating and if drinking, very little. He peed on the carpet in the living room. Usually very well trained. Stays out most day and comes in to eat and spend the night.
