Yes, cats can walk backwards. This manifestation, although rare, is observed in cats. They use their tail to balance and look around through their shoulders to avoid obstacles. Cat walking back can be a symptom of various diseases such as phelinous cognitive dysfunction, phelinosis infectious peritonitis, cat vestibular disease, seizures or poisoning. All breeds of cats have the instinct to walk backwards, and this is not considered a disease until it becomes common. If the cat is constantly walking back, it is recommended to consult a veterinarian to diagnose and prescribe appropriate treatment.
