Evita our 3 legged girl has been hiding for two days now. She came out of hiding yesterday for a drink and wee (on the floor :rolleyes008:) but she has not today. She has not had a drink or anything to eat. Think i will take her to the vets tomorrow if she is still the same.

Ohh I hope she's ok. I really wish our animals could tell us when they are poorly and what hurts. :(

Not eating or drinking is not a good sign. :( Hope all is well with her.

Thats what i was thinking. I don't think its good when they hide either.

No, no I'm afraid it's not. :( Isn't that a universal animal sign that something is wrong? :(

Think so. She has not had a good time of it. When we had her neutered her tummy swelled. Then the vet messed up big time with her leg and she ended up losing it :(.
The family always say she is a cloned Bethany but in the animal world. Everything goes wrong medicaly with her as well :(.

Thanks all. Dh got her out of her box and put her in the litter tray and she went. He then gave her some soft food and she ate it but she has now gone back to her box.
She may be freaked out as two went vets last week and since all the visits and operations because of her leg. She hates it when we get the boxes out. Will keep close eye on her.

Well she is ut sitting on the sofa watching bunny. She has eaten, drinking and going to the litter tray.She is purring as well. Will keep close eye on her and see if she keeps improving.
Thanks for your kind thoughts. Hope it was just a 24 hour bug or something.

I wonder, maybe she was put out with the new bunny? Is she used to getting a lot of attention and then some of it was diverted to the newcomer?

Just wondering. I'd rather think of her as pounting than sick!

Glad your kitty is better . We all have our off days , where we just don't feel good and the next day were fine . Cats are the same way .
I have thought of you often . My puddie passed on , remember my Himaylian . I now have a buffy orange tabby, Toby . He was so little and is now like a mini tiger . Unique Personality Too !!!
Then I found Binx on my front porch . He is gray and white . Like a mask of gray over his face . I should have called him Bandit . LOL
I'll have to post you a piccie .

Thanks all :hug2:

I am so sorry to hear about puddie. Sounds like you have your hands full with Toby and Binx. Great to see some photo's.
She is back to hiding again. I am wondering if her good back leg is playing up, it must have a lot of weight on it as the other has been removed.
Not sure if bunny is to do with it as she has 12 other cats to contend with.
I know have cat boxes out for the other two would have upset her.
