If a cat is limping, then what to do?
my cat was limping really bad, what should i do? I dont know what has happened to it???
Take the cat to the vet!! A limp could be a symptom of many things. It could be as simple as a sprain which can heal by itself or it could be a dislocation, trouble with the back and/or spine, or another serious problem.
Cats hide their illnesses because, in the wild, weakness shown means other animals may prey on them. By the time a cat shows it's illness or problem, it can be major.
A vet is necessary at this point.
Yes, I agree, take it to the vet. I'm getting a message that that answer is too short, but that's really all I have to say. Take it to the vet.
It's not uncommon for a cat to misjudge a jump, if it seems serious get it checked out.
