Hi. I am new here. My two year old cat started acting weird yesterday and we can't figure out what is causing it. She is really tense when we go to pick her up (she usually doesn't mind being held). She is very skittish. She walks around really slow and near the ground as if she is hunting but the slightest sound or movement scares her. Earlier she jumped when I sniffled and when we moved a lap top cord she jumped 3 feet up. She also looks like she is constantly sniffing and sees something moving. She is an indoor cat. When around our other cat she usually tries to play but now just stares at our cat. She is afraid to jump off a bed. She peed on the carpet which hasn't happened since she was a kitten. We can't figure out what is wrong, any ideas?

Two possibilities. The first is she saw something that spooked her, perhaps something outside when she was looking through a window. The second is something medical. Any significant behavior changes often signal a medical problem. So, if she doesn't start acting like herself within the next few days, I'd consider a vet visit.
