Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) Any history of illness or injury? 2) Can you share a video of what you're seeing? 3) When you hold the back feet in your hands vs. the front, do you notice any temp difference? which is warmer?
Can he still pull his feet away?Are you able to share video?
My concern is that he has either suffered some type of injury or he has passed a clot, likely the latter given his age. We see this most commonly in middle and senior aged male cats. I would recommend a visit to the vet this weekend. Passing a clot can indicate underlying heart disease and cats who are passing clots may already be in congestive heart failure. Some will pass quite quickly from the symptom while others will have a few months to years of life left with daily medication and close observation of the illness.
