Pain and not eating

July 25th, 2011, 08:57 PM
My cat Pan didn't eat anything today, and he LOVES food. I don't think in his 7 years of life he's ever missed a meal, or gone without reminding me that it's mealtime. I also noticed this evening that he is tender in his hind end near his tail around his spine and will growl when I touch him there (he never growls). He also seems to have a slightly stiff gait. I haven't a clue as to what's going on, and it's concerning me greatly. I fully intend on taking him to the vet, but was wondering if anyone here might know what's going on.

Thanks in advance

Given the quick onset of the symptoms and the fact that inappetence is a very serious symptom in a cat, quick diagnosis by a vet is imperative. Unfortunately our members are not vets and unable to address potentially serious health issues like this one. Time is critical - please contact a vet immediately.

Good luck, we'll watch for an update on your pet's condition. In keeping with site policy, this thread will now be closed.
