Don't delay, kittens can go downhill and die in a matter of hours.
I hope everything's OK.

Okay so i planned yesterday to go to the vet today, but once i woke up i saw that my little kitty was climbing and playing on the couch, but i notice that it seems like something kinda strange with her back legs, like there hard to move, she seems happy and is eating and drinking, is this still sumthing to worry about? also i notice that she has a bit of a big belly, maybe shes just eating alot?

Her big belly could mean worms - I agree - you should really take her to the vet as soon as you can.

Good luck!

There is a virus called caliccivirus that can attack the joints making it very painful for your kitty to walk.

I agree with everybody that a trip to the vet, checked out and perhaps if all is OK dewormed and vaccinated.
