Sagging stomach/organs, thin around hips
I have noticed that my female cat, about 3 years old and spends days outside but nites inside, has been scarce for the past few days. My kids have reported seeing her under the bed, which is odd behavior for her. I have seen her eating so I wasn't overly concerned. But tonight I saw her trying to walk and she was moving very slow, almost like her balance was off. She kept stretching her back legs out, more than just a simple yawn and stretch. At first glance she looked malnourished -- her sides are concave -- and then I noticed her stomach or internal organs are hanging very low and is swollen.

There's no broken skin or evidence of a fight; however I do have another cat that I got at the same time. They have never gotten along and they hiss and hate each other but I've never seen them in a fight. Also, about 2 years ago an unknown person in my neighborhood separated her tail from her spine. I had her seen immediately and the vet said it was a clean break, and the worst symptom would be messiness at the litterbox because she can't get her tail out of the way. I haven't had that problem, or any other problems as a result of the pulled tail.

It's after midnight and I have 2 young kids so taking her to the animal hospital isn't an option until the morning. Does anybody have advice on making her more comfortable until I can have her seen in the morning? And, does anybody know what might be the cause of these symptoms?

THANK YOU.
