I have a cat. She's about 6 months old. She was fine yesterday. She went into hiding last night. I found her today. And she seems really sick. Her behavior is completely different. Her back legs seem really sore. She won't eat or drink. And her breathing is a lot faster then it's supposed to be. Please help me help her.

  • Hi james. I think its something else. Ive been hand feeding her water through a syringe. But it seems to be doing nothing. Her back legs are going from underneath her. I was feeling around the back leg area. And she seems to be in pain. Why i dont know. Ive looked for a tick. And cant find one. Shes very spoilt. Her behavior has completely changed shes not my cat. Shes hissing at me. Shes giving up 😢 and wants to hide and be alone. Jan 1 '17 at 11:54
  • You say her back legs seem really sore. By any chance did she recently receive a vaccine via injection?

You need to take the cat to the vet today.If she was only not eating you could wait until tomorrow for the vet. Related How long can a healthy cat go without food?

    There are 24 hour vets, but you will need to search in your area. Jan 1 '17 at 13:15

    Most SPCA organizations have a hot line that can connect you to emergency/off-hours vet service; some, such as the MSPCA, run their own emergency services and hospitals. Your own vet's answering machine probably also has suggestions.

  • @CrystalBarlow yes, and in many areas vets work together, offering 24/7 area coverage in rotating shifts with a central emergency hotline.
