Anakin's big sister Zoe has hurt her back leg.

 
Zoe is my eldest cat at 15 years old. I'm not sure what she did but I think she may have jumped down from somewhere and landed funny. Last night near midnight I noticed that she was very wobbly & unstable as she was walking. I set her on a kitty bed on the floor. She just could not get comfortable and was crying when she moved her back leg. I gave her some of he arthritis medication I have for when she acting like she is sore. I kept checking on her all night. One time she was up in the litter box and seemed to be walking much better. In the morning she was up in the computer chair sleeping! So she jumped up there somehow? I took her to our vet when they opened. They looked her all over and watched he walk. Since she was already so much better than she was near midnight and putting some weight on her leg, our vet decided to just keep her on her arthritis medication and see if she continues to improve. So far so good! I had to get her down out of a chair earlier. It's hard to keep her off of things. I  already had chairs, boxes & steps all around the house to make things easier for her, Anakin  Mika. I just wish I knew where & how she hurt herself so I could fix it? I will keep you all posted! Zoe is having her afternoon nap right now.

  4. My cat had something similar and it turned out he had been bitten by another cat on his foot between the toes. It was really hard to find.

  6. Zoe is so pretty, I hope those medications will help her mend. Maybe she did leap off somewhere and landed the wrong way. Time will show. Callie, my cat, sends Zoe her purrs and wet-nosed kisses, too. Love, hugs and purrs, Kathy
