Sudden strange behavior change PLEASE HELP

    Unhappy Sudden strange behavior change PLEASE HELP

    From today my grey rat (yuki) shows strange behavior. At first it was eating it's own poops. It used to run around and be all active, now it barely moves. It also doesn't react to
    touches and pets. Simply, it lost its interest at everything and sleeps all day. Another thing is its weird pose with butt raised up, just like cats arch their backs. All these things might sound normal but it's
    nothing like it behaved until now. Its change in behavior worries me.
    PS: It's also cleaning its tail ( it has never done that before)



    Thank you for a respond.

    Any sudden change of behavior or personality changes in an animal could indicate a medical problem. Take it to a vet and have it checked out. Could be nothing to worry about but for your own peace of mind have it looked at by a vet
    he is your friend and protector, he will love you unconditionally, you owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion

    I agree with Linda, there can be several medical conditions causing this and the cat need medical testing and treatment in order for it to resolve itself. The cat is apparantely suffering. Is your cat eating and drinking water every day?

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
