I think he may have broken one of s back legs. He isn't

Customer Question

Hi! I think he may have broken one of his back legs. He isn't walking but when he does he's not using one of his legs and he's growling. Also when I picked him up to put him on the bed he growled and tried to get out of my arms. What do you think is wrong?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. I'll do all I can to help. Did the cat have a fall?
Customer: I think he may have fell or came off his cat tree when we weren't home
JA: What is the cat's name?
Customer: Noodles
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Noodles?
Customer: He's still pretty young like a year or a little over a year. He's kind of chunky. When he walks he hold his right back leg up
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.

I am sorry Noodles may be hurt.

Can you tell me if you see any swelling or wound on his leg?

Does he act painful when you touch it?
