Cat Ginge

Ginge, my female cat unknown, has a health problem

Why is my cat walking with a hunched back? she is hiding away from everything, she is drinking lots of water and has water-like poo, she is tucking her paws under her body when sitting and keeps closing her eyes. She's is also walking around the house very slowly, she seems to have also lost weight.

Hi! A posture with bent back and slow walking is a characteristic of fear or discomfort. The same goes with lying position with hidden legs and closed eyes; it usually indicates pain and discomfort. On the other hand, diarrhea is a very nonspecific symptom, so the best would be to bring Ginge to your veterinarian for a general assessment and, if necessary, a blood test to find the cause of the possible problem she may have.
