cat problems

We are worried about our cat, all he seems to do is lay under the bed, his fur is dull, he seems to be favoring his back end and is limiting his movement, hes still eating and drinking tho, we think he may have been playing and hit his back end some how,is there something we should be looking for if hes broken anything.

I'd take him to the vet. Dramatic changes in behaviour with no apparent cause should always be investigated.

Cats are notoriously good at hiding sicknesses. It would certainly be a good idea to take him to the vet and get a thorough examination. At least if you know his problem isn't physical you can go from there.

agree with what everyone else said a vet trip sounds like a must

How long has this been going on? Does he go outside? Does he have any wounds? Just be careful if you do examine your cat because if he is painful he may try to bite or scratch you. He's either hurt or sick, so unfortunately either way he needs to see a vet. Good luck.

Everything you're describing indicates a very sick cat. I'd make an appointment yesterday.
