Customer Question
My cat is about...

My cat is about 18 yrs old. I notice today that his right foot was not looking right when he walked n really did do anything but sleep. He did eat some. Also he had a seizure 10 days ago but have not seen one since. He seems very lethargic and has small about of discharge from his eye and seems to sneeze occasionally. Otherwise he has been very healthy til now.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the cat's name?

Merlin.

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

I had to have his left eye removed because they thought he had cancer at UC Davis vet school

Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. Welcome to JustAnswer! I’d like to help with your concerns regarding Merlin.

I'm sorry to hear that he's not feeling well.

Has he had a history of seizures prior to 10 days ago?

How long ago was his left eye removed?

What are you noticing that is different about his right foot?
