Cat having difficulties walking
Yesterday, I found my female cat in our closet.  When I got her to come to me, she walked as though she was dizzy, stumbled to the right and plopped down to her right.  She's able to take a few steps (always stumbling to the right) & then sits or lies down.  She lets me pet her, even her hips and doesn't seem to be in pain.  There hasn't been any change in her appetite either.  In the last year, she's lost an incredible amount of weight but has remained as active as a kitten...she's about 16 years old.  This whole walking thing seems to have happened over night.  Any suggestions on what this could be?  Thanks.

You'll have to take her to a vet for a proper diagnosis. Cats of that age are at high risk for diabetes and hyperthyroidism, among a few other illnesses. Both can cause weight loss and lead to eventual neurological issues.

I hope kitty feels better, let us know if there's any news.
