Figured the Health and Body Forum wasn't the proper place for this..

I have a cat. He's 17, been in seemingly good health. We just moved him into our new house yesterday. He's been living at our old house for about 2 weeks before that, been bringing him food and water twice a day, petting and such.

He's been moving extremely slow lately. Very slow. He also laid on the floor in my grandpa's room, which is unusual, he usually sleeps on the bed or chair. His nose is warm and dry, and he just urinated on a carpet, when he full knew where the litterbox was.

Anyone have a situation like this before.. any suggestions?

I thought the strange behaviour could be to do with him adjusting to the new environment but the warm/dry nose is a bad sign. Keep him well fed, watered and feeling safe with a nice place to sleep. Keep close by him, pat and cuddle him every so often, and keep an eye on his symptoms. If they worsen take him to the vet.

I hate to say it, but your cat needs to be checked out. Our cat used to act weird then we found out he had kidney failure.

So, do that.

Me uncle had this cat that lived to be 22 years old, outside at that. He got hit by a car whilst dropping a deuce in the middle of the road.

It's like you take vodka, and then dilute it down until it's pretty much water, but still call it vodka, and proceed to pretend to get heavily wasted off it.

He's 17, sorry to say, but the cat doesn't have much juice left, for lack of a better expression. Sad but true. He lived a long life, be happy for that: I've had three cats who have all died or been lost before they were 3.

callin it.

Sometimes cats get a urinary tract infection... hurts to pee so they hold it until they cant do so anymore... go where ever.

He'll be sleeping on my Grandpa's lap, there's nowhere else he's happier.

Also, I don't really want to take him to the vet. My dad doesn't want to risk property damage, and he seems set that if we take him to the vet its a one-way trip...

Is there anything else I could do for him?
