we think my kitty has broken his rib

by amber

what is wrong with my cat he wont eat or wee and he is walking funny

Answer from kate


if you suspect that your cat may have broken his rib then there is only one thing you can do and that is to help him by taking him to the vets. It is likely that he is in pain and if he is also having other difficulties such as not eating or going to the loo these are definite indications that your cat is feeling very unwell and is possibly in pain.

please do not delay in taking your cat to the vets as soon as you can

I hope he is better soon

best wishes Kate

I have a cat that is almost always outside at night, she came home today and is just laying in an infant car seat, she got in herself so I dont suspect a broken leg, she is breathing a bit quicker but doesn't seem to be having to much difficulty breathing, she is also licking a spot where her ribs are and is moving slow, I suspect broken ribs and am trying to get my parents to take her to the vet to check for internal bleeding or lung puncture. Im only 14 so I cant drive myself.
