|Felix's mom here-
Shortly after I came home from work yesterday evening, I noticed that Felix was hobbling on one of his rear legs (the left one). He did not appear to be in severe pain - he never cried out when I tried to examine his leg and he was alert and eating and drinking normally. He was even jumping on and off the furniture as he normally does!
After taking his nap (yesterday evening), Felix started walking normally again and was fine the rest of the evening. However, shortly after we got up this morning, he started limping again. I took the day off work and called his vet as soon as they opened. He has a 2:00 appointment (the earliest they could see him).
The limping has subsided again, and Felix is still behaving normally - alert, normal appetite, and used his box. I thought at first he had just jarred or strained his leg jumping off of something, but now I'm not so sure. The limp comes and goes, and he's not in visible pain. It seems to be a recurring weakness in the leg.
He is going to the vet this afternoon, but in the meantime, I'd like to know if anyone here has any idea what this could be. I'm very worried.
Thank you in advance for your input.
