I am really worried here. Today, about 12 hours ago I noticed something extremely peculiar about my cat. She is normally an affectionate, loving, and very animated with her tail type of cat. Especially when she gets the butt-scratchies. That makes her incredibly happy. For some reason as of today, she has not used her tail at all. She is nowhere near as animated as usual, and this has completely blind-sided me. I do not have a job and I lost my car due to an unfortunate accident so I am incredibly limited in my abilities. She doesn’t seem normal in the aspect that she isn’t seeming to eat as much food, she has been very lazy, and she just will not lift her tail no matter what. She doesn’t seem to be in any distress if I touch her hind area. I live with my cousin and I don’t think he would harm her by any means. I asked him if he may of accidentally stepped on her tail or anything and he said no. Seemingly overnight I have a different animal. Is there any advice out there at all, that can help me somewhat narrow this down? I’m desperate, I was given this cat by my late sister who passed in Iraq and she is all I got.
