Please Help - radical change in behavior!
I'm really concerned and I don't know what to do. Last Saturday was a perfectly normal day for Vequi. Sunday came and she is a totally different cat! She has spent most of yesterday, and today sleeping (or attempting to) on various places throughout the apartment. She is walking very slowly and can't (or doesn't want to) jump anymore. She shows little (close to none) excitement for playing, when she enjoyed to initiate tag play sessions, and would go crazy during play therapy to the point of being unstoppable. Now I have a nine month old kitten behaving like a senior cat!
On the other side, she is still eating, drinking water and using her litterbox, and she doesn't appear to be scared at me or anything else.
I'm puzzled. My mother and a couple of friends say Vequi may be maturing and therefore the change, but I don't think so. Why that radical change overnight? Is she sick? Can a spayed cat be moody because of hormonal changes? Should I do something about it, or should I just ignore her and let her come out of her newest shell?
Any ideas? Thanks.
