I'm so sorry to hear about your loss of Rocko, he was very blessed to have a special Mom to take care of him. I recently have a new addition to my family as well, her name is Alice. She was feral when I captured her, I knew her back legs were paralyzed and knew she wouldn't survive outdoors like that, so I was determined to help this little girl. I just lost my 20 year old kitty , Sweet Pea, she was killed by a coyote, and I didn't want the same thing happening to this little kitten. I tried finding a rescue for her, but everybody pretty much told me to have her put down, too much work. Well, I knew that wasn't going to happen, and now she is the love of my life. She is appx 9 weeks old now, her legs are paralyzed, but they shake sometimes, and sometimes she trys to stand on them.
She is incontinent, and has no feeling anywhere in that area. I have not had funds lately, but plan on taking her to vet soon. I came here looking for advice for some kind of bandage/diaper for her. She has had an ongoing skin problem, near her rear, which is raw, and in a very awkward spot, where I need something to allow her to go to bathroom, but keep the skin safe from bacteria when she drags herself. If she has a diaper on, then it would just sit there on her raw wound and get worse. I did try an xxs diaper and it kept falling off. I thought maybe part of a glove, and cut the outer fingers off for her legs, and one for tail, as any bandaging I've tried with no avail. I can relate alot to your story, and would appreciate any advice you can give. Thank you. Kathy
