Leg's clicking

December 12th, 2003, 04:01 PM
My cat is 12 years old. She is full of energy and still plays like a kitten. I have always fed her Medi-Cal Feline food from the veterinarian's office. Presently, we are using the geriatric one.
Lately I have noticed her legs clicking. Not sure if all 4 are but definetly one front and one back. She seems to be in no pain whatsoever. Is able to jump up and down anywhere at anytime.
Do you know what this may be and is it cause for concern?

I dunno maybe arthritis. What does the vet say

Hmmm, I've had dogs with arthritis & never noticed clicking...but many years ago I had a knee injury, and it clicks sometimes. Doesn't hurt at all, though.
Don't know if it's the same deal with your cat...?
Your vet would be the one to ask, and maybe s/he could manpulate your cat's legs & feel what the problem is.

LOL - lots of us have joints clicking as we age! I know I sure do!

Cats are very stoic about pain, but if she seems perfectly fine and is not favouring any limbs, I would probably wait for a regular vet visit, and mention it then.
