I would not have posted this here, but I am trying to figure out what the problem is, and any considered opinions are welcome. Note she is definitely going to the vet on Monday, no matter what anyone says. I'm just not sure what the heck is going on. My 12-year-old cat, Mookey, just moved with me from a house to an apartment three weeks ago. The first two and a half weeks were fine, and I am confident she was uninjured by the move (my dad was helping me move in after Mookey and I got settled, and would have noticed), but the past few days have been kind of strange. She is a strictly indoor cat. She's eating, drinking, urinating, and defecating perfectly fine. The problem is that she is fussy about getting up: She cries when she gets up every so often (not every time) and hisses a little about getting up (again, not every time; about 1/3 of the time that she cries). Other than that, she seems fine; when I pet her, she purrs and cuddles with me. She doesn't seem to have trouble walking, as she's moving around the house and not walking strangely. It's just the getting up that appears to be the problem. I visibly inspected her for bumps and bruises and could find nothing. What could be wrong with her? I have an appointment to see the vet on Monday; is this serious or drastic enough to take her to the emergency clinic instead? Sorry for posting here. It's just so strange and I can't figure it out; I'm trying not to panic, but she is my first real pet (aka one that my parents have nothing to do with helping raise) and I have had her for going on seven years without any problems, so am not sure what's up.
