my cat is 7 yrs old, a couple of years ago he started dragging his back legs. He is not in any pain that we know of. he plays he eats well, he seems to pee way too much, he has a little trouble when he poops, allways hard stools. I took him to the vet and she shaved his fur, eaiser to keep himself clean. Has a purplish bald spot on his belly, he is allways licking at it. He is an indoor cat. don’t know what has happened to him, please help if can.
I’m so sorry to hear about your cat. I’m answering this because I know of a cat with a similar problem. The cat was peeing alot for a couple of years and now cannot move her hind legs very well, she walk on her hocks (or heels) and her legs slip out from underneath her. So she has to kind of drag herself around. The cat has untreated diabetes which caused diabetic neuropathy. Here is a link to a site with more information on this:[url]http://petdiabetes.wikia.com/wiki/Neuropathy#Symptoms[/url]. If dIf it is with treatment it can be helped.
Did the vet check for this?
I hope that you find out what it is and can help him.
