Customer Question

I have an old cat (approx 15+) who is losing weight and cries all the time. He follows me into the kitchen all the time hoping I will give him something to eat. He acts like he is starving. He was kindof throwing up brownish stuff, but now it is clear and runny. The other day I saw him stumble, his legs wouldn't hold him and he fell on his side. I looked like a stroke to me. I want to know if he is in pain...
