should i take my cat to the vet?

my cat has always been very playful and cuddly and she has not been as active or lovable shes always sleeping and doesnt answer to her name anymore should i take her to the vet?

Answer by Kate
Well this is a difficult question to answer as there as there are so many different reasons why your cat could be acting this way. yes she could be feeling ill or she may be getting old and just slowing down.

If the behaviour is also accompanied by other changes such as not eating properly or using the litter tray etc then it could mean that she is ill and so taking her to the vets is the best option.

If she is getting old but is still eating fine etc then you can put it down to just old age.

My best advice would be, if you have any concerns for at all then a trip to the vets will not only put your mod at rest but if there is something wrong it can be caught early on.

Hope all is well

best wishes Kate
