My cat is an outdoors and indoors cat. We spotted her today

Customer Question

My cat is an outdoors and indoors cat. We spotted her today outside walking in an unusual way and she is still doing that hours later. She is putting her back legs squint under her body to move forward so her body is slightly bent. It seems to be her left leg that is going crooked. She seems a bit sleepy but otherwise okay, is eating and purrs when stroked.
