Arthritis in cats?

Dear All,

Daisy had an short term pain killing injection at the vets and has appeared
much happier and calmier since. The Vet manipulated her hind legs and could
not find any problems (not a murmur was made).

We are currently in two minds as to what the cause of her pain was:

1. Arthritis
2. An insect bite

She currently appears pain free and we and our neighbours are monitoring
her - should she again show signs of distress will whisk her off to the vets

Daisy is an independent cat, and I am not sure whether the Vet will ever be
able to truely diagnose the problem, particularly as she seems to play it
cool when ever there are strangers around

Thank you very much for your concern, best wishes to you all and your cats.

Best regards,

Dear Harvey

I know what you are talking about I had a cat that acted that way.I was

able to get it to the vet , he eventually died last year. I believe it was
old age he was 14 and half years old. Its very sad to a cat (kid) you love
so much in pain . You can feel very helpless. I hope your cat fairs better
than mine.
