I would really appreciate advice and hearing if anyone else has had this problem. My darling Mulder (12) had seemed very quiet for a few days, and unusually, spent most of his time in the polytunnel. He usually spends a lot of time roaming about, and is very affectionate. Last night I made him come in, he refused food and settled to sleep in his basket. I was worried but let him lie. Today, when I went downstairs he asked to go out - he is a cat that loves outside and is a great hunter and tree climber. As I watched him I saw he was really dragging a hind leg. He went to the toilet in 'his' place under the roses, had a drink and then my daughter brought him in because she couldn't stand watching him dragging himself about. He was purring, but other wise very quiet. We felt his leg, but we can't find anything obvious. He still hasn't eaten anything and is now asleep on my bed. OF COURSE this has to happen at the weekend! I shall take him to the vet on Monday - I just wondered if anyone else has had this problem with their cat?
