Toby is ill. I think it may be something like kidney disease.
He won't purr for me. The cat who always purrs won't purr for me.
We are going to the vet on Monday.
** besides the non purring, which is a big deal because he loves getting attention, since last night at 8 pm he just lays on the bed, doesn't want to move. He did go to the litterbox and have some food/water this morning, but he's just one step shy of being apathetic.
He's been limping for a few days. Once I saw him sitting, that front leg was trembling a bit. Never seen that before. This morning he was sitting, but slumped to one side like some dogs do.
I did see him groom himself and Leia, which I think is a good sign, but I'm afraid it's something serious. While 8 years old seems young for a serious condition like kidney disease, he was separated from his mom at such a young age, and has always seemed fragile.
Does anyone have an idea based on these signs?
