Why did my cat die?
Hi My name is Eric. My cat Smokie died today at the age of 14. Over the past year he began to lose weight and loose fur on his legs mostly his hind legs. He was so boney but he still ate regularly. At times he would almost loose the ability to walk. He would wobble around and sometimes fall down. I'm not sure what this was but I'de like to know.

I am not a vet and also the only way to really know what could have been the problem is to have an altopsy.
It could of course simply be old age or it could have been a thyroid problem. this causes rapid weight loss even thoudg the cat eats well. Eventuall the muscle starts to waste away as well and this may have made your cat wobbly on his legs. A vet would have been able to diagnose thios with a blodd test.
I am sorry to hear of your loss
