Old Cat Is Stumbling – What Does It Mean?

My cat is 18yrs. Old and started stumbling last week. What could be the problem?

In human terms, your cat is 83-92 years old, so in fact a very old cat. Older cats commonly suffer from such symptoms as muscle wastage in the back legs, arthritis, joint pain and other movement-related disabilities. While it is always worth taking your pet to a vet whenever unusual symptoms occur, it is likely that you are now seeing the first symptoms of advanced ageing in your cat.
