    I have noticed that both my 4 month old boys hunch up their backs every once in awhile....it isn't everyday....they are both eating, drinking, pooping/peeing......eyelids are good. They seem happy and playful, but every now and then I notice they do this.....it only last for a few seconds and then they relax and go about their business. They were womed by the vet last month and then I wormed them with horse paste 2 weeks ago. Is this anything to worry about???? Just don't want to let something that could be serious go ignored......they have been doing this since I brought them home 7 weeks ago....they were treated for cocci when I first got them home, but they both have tested clean for it and worms.
    Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

    They will be by the end of the month.....vet wanted to wait until weather cooled down. I know that Elwood (black)....he has figured out he is a boy and thinks his brother is a girl! :)
    Thanks Stacey

    Yep, I would say they're just being boys...Mine do that every once in awhile.
