My cat is almost 10 and she just started acting very strange

Customer Question

My cat is almost 10 and she just started acting very strange yesterday. She seems very slow and tired, wherever she lays down she keeps her head down and I try to lift it she kind of resists. She's doing things she's never done before like laying in spots she's never gone to and not running away from the vacuum. She also doesn't seem to be eating I gave her some wet food because she loves it but she hardly ate any. She usually jumps at the food, gets excited and meows alot but she didn't seem to care at all.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your cat will be able to digest that. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Jade She also started meowing alot latley constantly but seemed totally fine until yesterday
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
