Default Question about cat health...?

My older neutered male cat woke up one day with poor balance and a tendancy to tilt his head in unusual ways. All his bodily functions seem to be normal and he is not in pain. I thought maybe he had a stroke??? If anyone knows a cause for such behavior please let me know. Thank you.

Sounds like he needs to go to the doc. Sounds like a stroke or poisoning.

This does sound like a stroke. I had this occur with an older cat and the cat also seemed a bit confused. I'd take the cat for a vet visit asap.

Your cat could be hypoglycemic. My cat is diabetic and we were told to look out for behaviors like that. Take him to the vet a.s.a.p. If you can not get to a vet right away, give him some karo syrup and if you don't have that you can use maple syrup. Vets suggest a syringe full and then give the cat something to eat. See if that helps. Good luck!

We had that problem with a rabbit once. The vet said it was an ear infection (the inner ear affects balance).
