    I had a beautiful petite long haired black cat. Not very original but her name was Shadow. I only got to enjoy her for 7 yrs. Her mother had distemper, so Shadow developed wobbly cat syndrome. anyone unfamiliar your cat has no balance. think what your cat would look and act like if she was extremely drunk. It got bad enough that I had to let her go. She consistently fell off things, the biggest problem with that was she loved to climb as high as she could get. I lost her 6 yrs ago and still miss her.
    Reading this I hope the importance of getting your cats (any pet) their shots in a timely manner. Had her mother not had distemper Shadow may have been a normal cat with a long life & healthy life.
