My cat is acting odd

My cat is acting strange, and I am not sure if she is sick, or if I should take her in to see a vet. Sometimes she when she meows, its almost as though she lost her voice, and its a tiny, half a meow. She is usually pretty vocal so its odd for her. Also, she seems to be afraid of me when its happening. She isn't lathargic. She seems to be pretty regular as far as the litter box goes, and she is eating/drinking.
Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Yes she has been spayed. She is about 17-18 years old. It might just be old age, but she has never acted like this before.

Acing afraid may mean she is in pain animals often diplayu fear when they hurt

When was the last time she was at the vet? What's her name by the way ?


Does she meow at unusual times now, or is it just the voice is missing?

Her name is Paco. She was at the vet some time within the last year or so. I had her teeth cleaned, and a blood panel done. They said the results were good at that time. I may have to take her in for another panel. I can't tell how or where she is in pain if she is.

And her meow is less than usual. She often acts harrassed when I pick her up, by giving a loud meow to dispute being disturbed. But now its just a tiny little meow.

Seniors should get bloodwork at least annually.

Do you have any pictures you can post of Paco?
