A few weeks ago a cat came into our centre as a stray from Ryde, we called her Abbie. After a few days we began to notice that she seemed rather uncomfortable on her back legs. She saw the vet and it was decided that an x-ray was needed to find out what the problem was.
We soon found out that Abbie had Osteoporosis a disease of the bones that leads to an increased risk of fracture. Abbie is now having a good quality diet and regular exercise. She seems none the worse for it and is quite a happy little cat. For the time being she is still under veterinary care and is not quite ready to go up for adoption.
