I have a little muchkin cat that turned 19 years old today. I've had her since she was 3 months old. We have her food up on a table so the dog doesn't eat it. In the last couple years, we've had to put steps (boxes) by the table because she can't jump up there anymore. Well, she fell off the table so I had to take her to the emergency vet clinic at 1:30 this morning. The vet said she doesn't have any broken bones and it didn't appear that she was in any pain (other than maybe some bruising from the fall), but what he did say is that she has some neurological impairment and her one hind leg isn't working properly anymore. She may have had a stroke (which may be why she fell), or she may have diabetes. Its just so hard to see her health deteriorate. I have to take her to her regular vet and get some blood work and more testing. I really hope this is something that isn't causing her any pain and that she'll be around for a while longer. I know she's old and I've been preparing myself for the eventuality, but you just can't really be prepared. It just makes me really sad to think about her not being here.
