Difficulty in coordinating movements
Vet Prompter Diagnostics for Fi the Cat:
Hey there! Sorry to hear about your fur-baby. It sounds like he’s having a bit of a rough time with his back legs. There’s a few things that might be causing it. One could be arthritis, which is pretty common in older cats. Another possibility could be a neurological issue, like a spinal cord problem or something called Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia. Lastly, it could be due to an injury or even a blood clot. But remember, I’m not a vet, so make sure to get your buddy checked out by a professional.
Here are some links that might help you understand what’s going on:
