She’s still not right. Yesterday, she had a really hard time walking, was putting almost no weight at all on her front right paw. I gently squeezed the leg all the way to the hip and the only time she showed any discomfort was on the paw itself. None of the joints seemed to affect her. And her back right leg is still not strong, either.
I’m expecting a potential new gardener today and I don’t know when he’ll be here, otherwise I’d have made a doctor’s appointment for her. I did call and was told I could just drop her off, but I can’t do that until the potential gardener leaves.
On the positive side, she’s got a great appetite. She ate a jar of babyfood last night and another this morning. A couple of hours later I gave her some Fancy Feast and she ate some of that, then jumped down from her chair and went pee in one litterbox, then climbed into the other and pooped. And it looked normal.
Her walking was better, but she’s still in pain. I’m thinking I’ll just give her some heavy duty supportive care this weekend and if she’s not doing better Monday, take her to the vet. If anything was broken, she’d be putting no weight on it. Whatever it is, comes and goes. I’m thinking about a sprain or pulled muscle more than anything really serious, because rest is helping her.
Oh, I will be so happy when there are no unwell cats in this house.
