She's not really walking on her "hocks" like they say diabetics do.  I haven't 
noticed a lot of drinking either.  But I'll definitely have that checked out 
just in case.  The bloodword that was done wasn't sent out to the lab.  It was 
just the real basic stuff like in the vet's office so I don't know if that 
would show diabetes or not.

“I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are 
profitable to the human race or doesn’t….the pain which it inflicts upon 
unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me 
sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.” – Mark Twain

Get her to the vet ASAP, it 
could be diabetes....I treated my cat for it for over 8 yrs.

  Subject: [Felvtalk] What could it 
I have a FeLV kitten that I'm fostering.  She's six or 
  seven months old.  She's the one I emailed about a couple months ago with 
  uveitis.  The uveitis never has completely cleared up.  But now I'm 
  not sure what's going on.  Her back legs are kind of wobbly.  It's 
  not bad enough that my husband has noticed yet, but I can see it.  It's 
  like she's slightly drunk.  She's walking okay with the front legs but 
  her back legs give way a little or something when she's walking.  She's 
  eating and going to the bathroom.  She doesn't run around and play as 
  much as the other cats do, but never really has.  She's just a real 
  mellow and loving kitten and I just thought that must be why she's not as 
  playful.  I'm not sure though.  She's not growing a lot too. 
   The other kitten her age, not related, has grown much faster than she 

So any ideas?  Why do you guys think she's started getting 
  wobbly in the back legs.  She can still jump on things but not as 
  sure-footed as the others.  I don't know if her muscles are getting weak 
  or if she's anemic or what.  A couple months ago her bloodwork at the 
  vet's office was okay.  I assume this is FeLV related but before I go to 
  the vet I'd like to be prepared and have some ideas of what's going
