    I usually don’t do these type of things. But, I’m worried about my kitten Luna 🙁 I just noticed this morning that she was limping when I was feeding her and her sister Pumpkin. It’s her front right leg that’s the issue but she can walk on it. Luna is a very active kitten but today she’s been sleeping a lot. But, she did play with Pumpkin a bit but meowed whenever her sister touched her leg. I’ve read on different articles that cats usually don’t eat whenever they are limping but she’s eaten a few times this morning. As a first time cat owner, I’m concerned on whether or not I should take Luna to the vet.

    Yes, take Luna to the vet asap. Because if she should have something broken or dislocated, the longer you wait the harder it will be to repair it. Young animals’ bones and tissues heal very fast and make scar tissue…meaning it’s probably already starting to heal even if it’s not in the right place. She will need an xray probably, to see if she has broken something.
