Cat is walking funny & no tail control

I noticed today that my cat is walking funny. He is walking with his backend "up in the air" and crouched down in front. He also seems to have no control over his tail. It is very limp, almost like it is "broken". Any input on what can be wrong?

Take him to a vet right now.

Sounds like he has some kind of spinal injury or damage. The sooner to a vet, the better the outcome.

If you need help finding an emergency vet, post back. You can call your regular vet and they probably have the info for an emergency vet on their answering machine. Or, check in the yellow pages.

This isn't something that can wait until tomorrow morning.
