I’m not sure what that could be, but maybe you could have the yearly exam a few weeks early? Or you could call your vet & see if they have any suggestions & see if its urgent. My mom has had many cats live to be 12-16 years old & none of them had any issues “mis-judging” things, so IDK if its an age thing.

Sometimes my 6 month old kitten Murphy will slightly misjudge something, he will barely miss where he’s aiming for but he normally makes it.

I know sometimes if cat’s whiskers have been cut, bent, or break off, that can affect balance. Are his eyes clear, or do they look cloudy at all?

It sounds like a health issue to me as well. Can you take him to a vet? At least keep an eye on him for awhile. I’m sorry.

Aww, poor guy.  Is he declawed?  My parent’s cat is declawed, and she loses her balance sometimes – she can’t get a good grip.

My cats aren’t declawed though, and they sometimes misjudge their jumps.  Just last night my one cat tried to jump up onto a table, but he totally missed and hit the table with his stomach.  He tried again and made it.

Since your vet doesn’t seem too concerned if it’s not frequent, I’d just wait until the upcoming appointment.  I hope he’s doing better!

Have you heard anything back from the vet yet? Has your kitty (what’s his name) re-gained his balance? Hope he’s doing ok 🙂
