The matriarch of our three cat household is Phoebe Jean, our 9 1/2 year old blue-eyed girl. We have had her since she was about 4 months old.

We have noticed over the past year or so that when she first gets up, she has a slight limp - looks like one of her front paws. She has no trouble getting around, up and down stairs, and never stumbles. We have not yet brought this to our vet's attention, as it hasn't seemed to big an issue.

I've seen treats (Zukes Hip Action) and medicines (Cosequin, which worked very good for one of our angel cats years ago) and have considered trying something - does anyone have any thoughts or recommendations?

Additional info...Phoebe Jean is front declawed. When we adopted her, we were not as enlightened or informed as we are now. We apologize to her on a regular basis for taking her claws, and will NEVER declaw a cat again (our 2 year old Bengals have all their claws, and trimming is a breeze).
