My young kitty is stumbling in her back legs
About a year ago I had a large male cat that had to be put down because of a saddle thrombosis. He displayed weak legs intermittently for several months before the crisis incident. Then he went down one day and was completely paralyzed in the hind quarters.
Now, I have a replacement kitty that is now about 15 months old. She is now, for the past two weeks, displaying the exact symptoms and my older cat.
As a note...My deceased cat has a brother/litter mate that on occasion has displayed these symptoms, but always gets better.
I am now getting very concerned there is an environmental problem around my house. They are indoor cats with the exception that I allow them on my patio/back yard that is heavily fenced. Obviously I have lawn treatments done and of course we here in my part of the world are overrun by wild rabbits and squirrels and birds.
They are fed three different varieties of premium dry food, and each morning I feed them a tablespoon of tunafish mixed with an equal amount of warm water.
The kitty seems ok most of the time but on occasion collapses in pain and what appears spasms in her back legs. She literally wallows around on the floor for several minutes before she is able to move/walk.
I took her to my vet last week and he did x-rays, and extensive blood work (cost me $462.50 US) Ouch! and found nothing out of the normal ranges.
I hate to see her in so much pain, but it seems to pass, but is not getting better.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks from Billy, Creampuff and Icebox..
