My cal walking funny and pooping all over the house

Hello, I have three cats (about 6 months old) two of them are perfectly fine. The third, i have noticed that he is walking funny, like his back legs are giving him problems, he is very thin too. He poops all over the house, it looks like he cannot help it. But he can walk up and down the stairs and jump into my chair and bed just fine. He seems to be eating and drinking normal as well. i'm concerned if I should take him to a doctor to have him checked out. He also plays with the other cats so I'm in conflect if there is a problem or not, his name is "Clark". Any help or advice is very welcome! Thank you in advance. - JIm

Hi Jim
yes I would advise taking him to the vets for a check up. from what you have described he may have a problem in his lower back area or even possibly his bowel. he should not be thin in this area and the pooping by be a sign of anxiety from the cat or from some physical problem in that area. it is best to go and have him checked sooner rather than later.

Hope he is Ok again soon

best wishes Kate
