today i came home for lunch to find george fouled the livingroom,i found him in the kitchen sitting by the door,when i called him he staggered and stumbled,the vet says it's a stroke(cerebellum) although we did not have an MRI or CATSCAN done ,she diagnosed from physical symptomes , and given georges age(18) she said keep him comfy and just let him live out his days and call her when i think it's time :sad:

Tonight i had to carry him outside and hold him while he did his business.
I'm gonna do this for the next week to see if he improves(vet said he my in 7-10 days) if not i think its time:sad::sad:
