Customer Question
She was crying all...

She was crying all of the sudden and fidgety then I noticed her right front paw she was limping and it curled under she can barely walk on it and my husband noticed her foot is cold She is 16 1/2 years old he thinks she may have had a stroke

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the cat's name?

Chloe

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Chloe?

She's had troubles recently with limping when she gets up from her bed I thought she probably had arthritis with her age

so, this is not a stroke.....this is most likley a blood clot to that limb and that is why the paw is cold...this comes from very serious and significant heart disease.....and this is very painful for your cat....

and it will get progressively painful......

You need to take her to the vet....and most likley will have to put your kitty down....
