My cat has a fractured pelvis. She apparently had a hip/pelvis injury before I even adopted her, and she (I) re-aggravated it by tossing her gently off of the couch for the millionth time (she landed awkwardly and skidded into my radiator). Give her activity level, this was an absolute inevitability, but I still feel very guilty.

Before you all tell me to go to the vet, the fractured pelvis diagnosis came from a vet/radiologist team, and the next step is the orthopedist. Hooray.

Don"t beat yourself up with guilt, YTM. I had no idea my Pusp had kidney failure until the time I shooed her gently off the couch and she just plain flopped on her side instead of doing the "cats always land on their feet" thing and I took her to vet. Cats are stupid good at hiding their illness/pain, they are stoic as gently caress.

Wishing all the best for you and your kitty.

First of all I'm sorry about your Pusp, and second of all thank you! My cat is recovering from surgery now, and considering her constant attempts to climb things, I think she's recovering pretty well.

Can cats fake sick?

For the record, I do NOT think she's doing it now (edit: and I didn't think she was doing it when I asked).

Do cats ever act sluggish for attention, for example?
