Q. My Cat Is 13yrs old. He Will Not Walk. He Eats & Drinks When It's Brought To Him. Not Going To The Bathroom that I Know Of. Been Going On About A Week

Answered By

A. It is really important that he is checked by your vet now, a week is too long for this to have been going on for. If he hasn't urinated this could potentially be very dangerous. He needs to see the vet and have some blood work done.
