It is possible that she could have arthritis, although a vet would need to make that determination. If she is acting like she is hurting, definitely take her in to the vet. There are somethings that you can do to help her out, i.e. the stairs you can buy for animals to get onto furniture. Sometimes a vet will prescribe medicine as well. The key to finding out what is going on is to take your cat in to the vet.

A cat is considered a senior at the age of 7. There is a chance she has arthritis. You really should take her to the vet for an exam. We can only guess and he can find out what's wrong with her and maybe give her medication that will help her.
