Our barn cat has had an off meow for a few days now and isn't getting better. It sounds broken. When she will let you pet her, usually she would lift her spine up into your hand but she's crouching down now when touched. Nothing new is around or happened that I can pin point to occurring causing something. It appears she's eating and drinking & her energy seems fine.
I put out some milk and some broth/chicken meat this morning, looks like she might have taken some broth.
Any ideas of what might have occurred? Anything else I can do for her? She's 8/9 years old and other than coming from a pound at 1, never seen a vet.
Homestead wife and mom to three kiddos with #4 on the way. Jerseys milk cows, pigs, chickens, geese and gardens.
Could be an issue with her kidneys. That would cause her to dip her spine. I think a vet trip is in order.
Living our dream! 6.5 acres in Johannesburg, South Africa, with a doggy daycare and boarding business on-site. Lots and lots of critters: 10 dogs (pets and LGDs), 6 cats, 2 parrots, 2 goats, 1 Dexter, 1 Jersey, 1 Hereford x, 3 horses, 1 pony, 6 pigs, barn chickens... And a wonderful fiancee!
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.

mamacherri10: good afternoon! I have not been on the website in a long time. Have a new jersey milk cow and am looking to see how long she needs to be dried up prior to calving? She is due the third week of May.
