my precious cat is walking stiffly

my 2 year old cat is walking slower than usual and she is being very carefull on jumping off chairs when she is usually hyper what could be wrong with her

Answer by Kate
hi well it is impossible to say for sure but she may have fallen and hurt herself and be bruised or strained something.

Also some illnesses can cause the muscles to ache (like flu), so it may be that she has an infection. Either way your best option is to take her to see a vet as soon as possible, to stop it developing into something worse. At the very least if she is in pain they will be able to give her some pain relief.

I hope she is better soon
best wishes Kate
