Manx kitten help

Two days ago, we got a Manx kitten from the shelter. We have noticed that her spine looks deformed and she is having problems going to the bathroom. Can anyone help me with this?

Please take her to a vet to be examined and to make sure she is healthy and doing well.

Don't be to critical of a mistake. It is evidence that at least
someone tried to do something.

Not an encouraging sign.

I had a Manx kitten who "could not go" and his poop and pee needed to be expressed by hand every day. He was a delight, but one must really be dedicated to do this. It was a birth defect - the shortened spine meant there was some nerve damage... well, nerves missing. He wanted to go, he tried to go, but the peristalsis did not happen.

Mine had been abandoned by his mom in the grass on a lawn. She knew he could not make it on his own.

Hello
Any updates on your little one? She looks so sweet. I hope she is ok. Iíve been thinking about her.

Thanks
Larry

Yes, she does look sweet. I hope that this is a temporary problem, for surely the shelter would have noticed if she never could poop or pee on her own. She would have been in obvious serious messy trouble.

Kshockle,

I'd never heard of this before, but there is actually another member who is having a similar issue with her kitty. https://www.catforum.com/forum/38-he...ontinence.html

I'm going to give her the link to this thread as well. Maybe you can help each other to figure out what's going on.

She is just adorable and I really hope that you are able to find a solution.
