My mothers cats back legs are not working all of a sudden,

Customer Question

My mothers cats back legs are not working all of a sudden
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did the cat have a fall?
Customer: yes
JA: It might be a fracture. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: I don't think its a fracture. My mother said he fell off the bed and landed on his head about 3 to 4 nights ago. His name is***** and not sure of his age, over 12. Mom has had him for about 6yrs and the last vet he saw guessed him to be between 6 to 8
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Prince?
Customer: I don't believe so

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Does he to be in pain?

Can he move the back legs at all?

Can he feel or react if you pinch a back toe?

Are those back leg colder then the front ones?
