I just noticed that my cat's nd legs seem to have given out

Customer Question

I just noticed that my cat's hind legs seem to have given out on him. He does not seem to be in pain, he purrs when I pet him, he was eating from his dish when I noticed it. Can you help?

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your cat. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Since I can't see and examine him, it will help to get more information. How old is he? Can he move his legs at all, can he walk at all? Or do his legs not move or support any weight?

If you look at his gums, are they pink in color or do they look pale?

This is an info request, to help me answer your question.
