Concerned Cat Parent

Hello Everyone,
Last night, when i came home i found my cat in her routine sleep. I went up to pet her and found that when i made contact with the tailbone area, she hissed at me and meowed in what seemed like pain. Any suggestions of what this might be, i notice when she is walking up the stairs she is going up at a limp now. Your suggestions would be apprecitated.

well, the hissing and "crying" don't necessarily mean much by themselves, but coupled with the limping, that's cause for concern. she may have sprained or pulled something while playing when you were out. see how it is tomorrow. if it seems to be improving, I'd just give it a few days to see if it heals on its own. if it's the same or worse tomorrow, you should see a vet.

My dad pulled on his cats tail too hard and he acted like that. I took him to the vet and he pulled so hard the tail was broken.

I caught my kids pulling Mi' Mi' tail when we first brought her home!
You can bet your bottom dollar they had sore butts for a few days!

Well i am not a vet or anything but i am wondering what age the cat is? becuase it might be hip or spin cancer.

That's what my cat did and it turned out she had cancer. But it could be anything.
