Q. My cat will not stand up, acts like one back leg is hurt, urinated on herself earlier, has been sluggish for a few days now, will not eat or drink

Answered By

A. She might have a severe bladder inflammation, this can sometimes cause symptoms that look like they are hurt on the back legs. it could also be an injury of the spine or hip especially if she goes outside (car accident).

You need to take her to the vet today in order to fin out what it is and treat it.
