Okay, my cat is pretty old. He's 17 in cat years, which would equal 88 in human years, right? But just pretty recently, he's been acting weird. He's been like this for the last few months and he just keeps getting worse. It's like it all happened so suddenly. Some problems are that he's always hungry, pees (and sometimes, poops) right on the floor in the bathroom, doesn't walk straight and loses his balance, spreads his hind legs when eating, is getting skinnier and one time, he also fell down the stairway when trying to walk down. What should I do here? My mom suggests that we should take him in to be to sleep. It'll be hard since I've had him since I was just 4. Should he be put to sleep or not?
