Loss of strength in back legs

Q Donna asks about george (cat - none, M) :

My cat has just been out all night which is not usual. When he returned he was dragging himself by his front legs only. He is still doing this 1 hour later and seems in pain. He has normal colouring in his mouth and has eaten. His back legs seem hot.

Q Our vet says: George needs to be seen by a vet. It sounds as though he might have been hit by a car or he could have other serious problems such as a blood clot preventing blood reaching his legs. Please get him to your vet as soon as you can.
