Unhappy Peanut's right front leg is limp - same problems

My 3 1/2 year old indoor cat suddenly appeared with a limp leg last night. We took her to the emergency vet and nothing came up on the xray. The vet said it may be nerve damage. She is very lethargic today and I found her laying in her litter box this morning. She doesn't seem to be in pain, but she is just laying there, seemingly helpless. I hate seeing her this way. The only thing that has changed was her kitty litter. I normally use feline pine pellets. I ran out and had a box of the clumping feline pine leftover in the basement. I used it once, but it made a mess so I haven't used it since. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I am letting the vet know anyway. The emergency vet said if it doesn't get better we may have to consider amputating. There is no way we could afford that, and Peanut is having a hard time not being able to use her arm too.
