My cat Garfield has been walking around for the past three days as if he has lost his balance. He walks a bit and then falls to the left, plus when I look at his eyes he has a blank stare.

Right at this time I am without money to take to the local vets and I have been very diligent in watching him.

He does eat and drink. So can anyone help?


I apologize for taking a while to answer you. I had major surgery and was in & out of the hospital for the past few months and not functioning. Hopefully, that's behind me now.

The problem you have with Garfield may be the same thing we experienced with one of our cats. It will correct itself in time and does cause balance issues. To get a full understanding please read the following article:

Since it's been a few weeks this may have resolved itself but at least if it happens again you will know what is happening. Good luck to you and Garfield.
