My cat is 8 and had a check up with blood tests last month.

Customer Question

Customer: my cat is 8 and had a check up with blood tests last month. All of a sudden when I got up this morning and I couldn't find him. He didn't come to me which he always does. I found him and I thought his front leg was weak. I took him to his doctor and we couldn't find anything. He was walking around the office and wasn't even scared. I bought him back home and he went into hiding again. I put out food and he eats little. He hides under sofa.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I am not sure what else except he wants to hide and won't come and sit with me or my husband. We have two other cats--one adopted last Sept--she is playful and wants to be friends with him They run together. I am not sure if he fell off the table where he eats his food. Can't think of anything that frightened him
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $19) to post your type of question to Cat Veterinary Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
