I have a 4 year old Bengal who is also experiencing weak hindquarters . We had noticed that he was kind of clumbsy for a while, but we didn't think much of it and chalked it up to his long slender body. Suddenly one day his back legs became very stiff and he began walking rather like an iguana. This has gotten increasing worse. If you even touch his hindquarters he falls over and has to drag himself up by his front legs when he attempts to jump. We took him to our regular vet who x-rayed him and found some hip displasia which he said shouldn't cause the weakness he was exhibiting. Next it was on to our local veterinary school , UC Davis, where they sent him to the neurological department where he spent the night and had a battery of tests including a complete head to toe MRI, a spinal tap, a blood panel and and exploratory surgery to his inner ear. Basically we make a large donation to UC Davis because they came up with nothing. My vet tried him on a course of steroids and latter pain meds for the hips. Benny is the sweetest best natured cat I have ever seen and this is killing me. It has been about 4 months now and there has been no improvement. I have been reading some of the other symptoms that you have described and have noticed that he did start marking a lot. He has been strictly on a raw diet of chicken and rabbit since he was a kitten and the vet tried some vitamin injections to see if that was lacking. I have not noticed him licking anything but he has developed a voracious appetite in the last week or so and will lay by his bowl and scream for more after I feed him. Since he was a kitten he has always had a thing for chewing leather an has destroyed a few shoes in his time. I don't know if whatever they cure the leather with could have something to do with it. I'm desperate to figure this out and hope someone here has an answer. Thanks for listening.

What's in the raw diet? Is it whole prey model? Ground? With or without supplements? Where do you source your meat from?

I'm imagine he's been tested for diabetes. Has he lost any weight? How are his energy levels?

I have been searching the internet for answers as my FurBee has alot of these same symptoms. We have done all the blood tests etc and come up normal. Two months ago this was a healthy, vital young cat, now he has lost alot of muscle tone, no appetite, just lays around. The vet is stumped.
I've tried everything I can think of. He's been on canned food with small amounts of dry food, now even raw food doesn't interest him. The vet put him on a course of prednisone but so far ( 2 days) there is no change. Things are looking grim for him and I am at my wits end. This is a cat who had a voracious appetite for food and life and to see him weak and lethargic is heartbreaking. I thank you for this forum as a place that I can spout off and get my concerns out in the open, I will keep you informed as to our outcome.

Smile THANK YOU Ryebread! -- Great news for kitty with hind leg weakness

I found this forum after hours of Googling the same symptoms others have discussed. My then-7 mo. old rescue cat, Ponchik, developed weak hindquarters -- first just sort of clumsy, then losing all muscle tone. He'd jump down from a sofa and his hind end would just collapse. He began sleeping more, lost his appetite, and instead of raising his rump when pet, he would seem to "melt" under the slightest touch. He'd had a severe ear mite case leading to infection, so we originally thought it might be neurological damage. (Switched vets during the course of the issue, and turned out he was also allergic to that antibiotic ... new vet was *far* better & cat specialist.) Nothing helped him improve -- not antibiotics, not prednisolone, not anti-inflammatories, nothing. He continued to grow weaker. His hind legs just weren't working.

Our vet ran tests after tests. Nothing showed up. Then I found this thread, read the posts by Ryebread, and I looked more closely at my cat. After some research into traits and characteristics, and looking at pictures, I realized Ponchik was obviously part-Burmese. I went back to my vet with some of this information, but he said that my cat didn't look Burmese (except for his coat), that his potassium and CK serum levels were normal, and that he had no cervical ventroflexion (dropping his head/neck, which is supposedly the classic symptom of hypokalemia). So I kept researching, while my cat kept declining -- and by now, he had a major eye inflammation that wasn't responding to treatment, & it was getting redder and more closed. He also started peeing outside the litter box around the house because he'd wake from sleep & be too weak to get himself to the box in time.

I found another link to an article on vet site that discussed how hypokalemia could occur with or *without* the cervical ventroflexion (http://www.thecatclinic.com.au/category/info-for-vets/). At the end of my rope, I took that to my vet, who said we could try a low dose of potassium as a last ditch effort. (My cat was now 10 mo. old, and she thought he was declining too rapidly and we might have to discuss "other options," i.e., euthanasia.)

It's now been less than two weeks, and like Ryebread's posts, my cat is improving drastically. He gets 1/2 tablet of potassium 2x/day. His back legs are gaining strength fast, and while he's still a touch clumsy, he climbed up into my child's top bunk yesterday, and he's been playing again (chasing a string down the hall). His appetite is back & he's gaining weight. He'd stopped talking, and now won't shut up -- and his voice is stronger (talkiness is also a main Burmese trait). He follows us everywhere and simply seems SO much happier. Our other two cats, who had started ignoring him, are now interacting with him again. His recovery is absolutely amazing. Ryebread talked about the major improvement of her Burmese kitten in 3 and 6 weeks. I feel as though if mine has improved this much in less than 2 weeks, I have real hope that he's going to be "normal" again.

I am so thankful that I pursued this course of treatment, and that I found these resources through Google and kept searching. If not, my cat would probably be dead by now. I don't know if this will help anyone else. But if you suspect your cat is even part Burmese, and he/she shows any weakening, weight loss, etc. (do a search on Ryebread's posts for a great description of symptoms), talk to your vet about potassium supplements -- EVEN if your cat isn't dropping its head/neck, and EVEN if the potassium level, white blood count, CK level are all normal. The bottom line is that a low dose won't hurt, and it's meant the difference between life and death for my kitty. We are so, so happy!

my cat had same problem...it was a blood clot.

A blood clot traveled and blocked a major artery that affected his hind legs. It's not that uncommon. Happened in a few weeks. It'd painful. Please ask your vet about such blood clots. So sorry but my kitty didn't survive it.

Please! Please!

tell you vet to check for heart disease, it's very hard to diagnose heart disease, I found out the hard way. The only way would be with an ultra sound, my kitty's heard sounded fine when they checked it, even on the x ray it looked fine. Cats can hide heart disease very well. My kitty had the same problem two years ago with her legs. Then last month she got really sick - I posted the story on the forum. We didn't know what it was, they finally put her on meds but she lasted a month. Still grieving as I'm writing this I loved her so much. Then the vet told me that looking back that would've been a sign, but at the time they also had no idea what it was. If you catch it early a cat can live a long live with heart disease, so please get her heart checked out. My kitty was only six and I wish they could've saved her, but they tried everything. Please keep us updated.

My cat Lycan (I have a thread posted on here somewhere) has develeoped rear leg weakness and muscle spasms. He's constantly stretching out his back legs like they are bothering him, and the muscle spasms include almost his whole body. Other than that, he seems fine. He is eating and drinking, and playing. He just seems more tired now, and has to take breaks for his legs. The vet did a bunch of tests, including a Neurological exam, and nothing has shown up to be wrong. The Neurologist says that it's probably FIP. But he has nothing to back up that information - it's just a guess based on the fact that he doesn't have anything else wrong with him. He told me the next step would be to do a Spinal Tap which is very dangerous, and life-threatening. I do not want to do this to my cat and risk his life - what if he doesn't have this fatal disease?! I've been looking everywhere online for information, and there are so many possibilities. I'm at a loss. He also likes to lick and eat things that are not edible. I'm going to try and change his food to wet, and maybe change his litter to pine. Does anyone have any further suggestions? Here is a link to the spasms he is having:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr6fJ...eature=g-all-s

New Discovery ~ LASER

I was researching online and came across this string over the last few days of doing my own online research... My cat has a lot of the same or similar issues as stated here. He first wasn't walking with his tail upright, then he wanted to be next to me, and was shaking. Rapidly, he stopped walking and didn't want to use his hind legs. He was in obvious pain and let me know. Took him to vet, then emergency vet, etc. X-Rays, blood work, antibiotics, prednisone, pain meds, enema, etc... was performed. I added in more supplements, he eats a fabulous diet...Nobody could find anything wrong. He was in pain constantly, crying whenever he had to move. I had to bring him food and water, he would eat. He would drag himself to the litterbox which I set his petbed next to, when I couldn't lift him to it when I wasn't home.

Then, my primary vet wanted to use a laser. I would try anything at this point, it was awful to hear him cry with pain, and see him like that. As long as he didn't walk on his hind legs, he was okay laying on his side. So, he had a few minutes of laser across his mid to lower spine area. I packed him up and brought him home to his petbed. They were suspecting some kind of trauma or injury to spine area which affected legs... I will try anything!

When I opened the crate, he walked out, walked around (kind of fumbling a little) and seemed bright, happy, meowing with joy and chatty with me. He sat down, then got up went to his litterbox to use it, then walked around me for a few, then went to his bed to lay down. I am blown away! Who knew? I wanted to make sure I got the word out, as I was stumped at what was wrong with him and nothing helped him. He is still uncomfortable, and I have several more appointments for laser. It's obvious he now has some kind of injury which could take weeks and weeks to heal up. The laser I believe from what I saw today will help and assist with moving along his healing.

I want to be sure that I registered so I could post to this forum, to bring awareness that this is one more thing to possibly ask your vet or try! I have HOPE and I am happy!!! We'll see over the coming weeks!

Having same problem with my cat. He adopted us about 5 mo ago .we do know him for about 2+ years .a very sweet neighborhood kitty. Took him in he needed a home. He looks like Burmese cat and has all the characteristics of one . Well a week ago i noticed a limp in one back leg the next day the other leg and now he is very weak in the back legs. He eats great and does use his box and wants to play but not like he normally does he has to be laying down on his side .he is at the vet now. Has to be sedated cause he will not let anybody touch his back side. I did ok all the normal tests to be done but i think i know what the answer will be. I hope i am wrong. I was up most of the night reading you postcard learned a lot. Printed out the article that rybread shared and i am taking it to the vet wjem i pick up midnight today.because she said she will not give him potassium she said it will kill the cat .she will do the test but if not lol she will not give it to him. It worked for you guys. Now did you get your vet to just agree to it.help i love this little guy and want him healthy and back to normal. By the way this all started after i gave him his 3rd mo treatment of revolution. Never again

At first I thought he was just imbalanced because he seemed to be swaying when he walked, he tipped over if I pet him, he tried to jump up on the table, missed, and fell on his back, etc. I thought maybe it was an inner ear problem so I brought him to the vet as soon as I noticed the problem.

The doctors at the clinic were stumped as they could not figure out what was wrong with him. They tested his glucose levels and said he doesn't have diabetes which oftentimes causes a cat's hind legs to be weak. They took x-rays and there were no bony abnormalities. He also did not have a heart murmur, his lungs were fine, and she checked out his ears, nose, and mouth which all looked fine. She said the pieces weren't fitting together and they just didn't know what was wrong with him. She said the next step would be to do a blood workup.

Right when I got home from the vet I placed my cat in his litter box because he'd been gone for a few hours and I figured he'd need to use it. After I put him in the litter box he started eating the kitty litter! He was eating mouthfulls. I pulled him out of there and put him by his food dish and he just went right back to the cat box and started to eat the litter.

The next morning I found out online that clumping cat litter contains something called sodium bentonite, and when ingested it causes cats to be weak and lethargic. For sure I thought this must be what was wrong with him. Then I started to wonder if he's sick because he's eating his cat litter or he's eating his cat litter because he's sick.

I went to the store and got the Cat's Pride brand of litter which states on the container it contains no sodium bentonite and is able to be flushed down the toilet. I read somewhere online that since sodium bentonite clogs pipes, imagine what it does to your kitty's intestines.

As soon as I filled the litter box with the new litter, my cat proceeded to eat the litter again. Since it didn't contain the sodium bentonite I wasn't AS worried, but I decided to go back to the store and get the Feline Pine brand, which is supposed to be completely safe and 100% pine, so it's okay if they ingest it, and it's able to be flushed down the toilet, etc. I haven't put the new litter in the box yet but I plan on doing so tonight.

I've read online that cats might eat their litter because they are lacking something in their diet. One source I found said that cats might eat their cat litter if they are calcium deficient or if they are anemic. I haven't had the blood test done yet so I don't know if it's either of these things. Another thing I read is that being anemic is probably caused by an underlying issue. I'm really hoping there isn't a serious problem with my kitty. I've only had him 6 months and he and my dog are best friends. I would be devastated.

I wasn't able to call the vet today and tell them about him eating his litter because they are closed. I left a message for the vet to call me back so I will be able to talk to her tomorrow.

One more thing I want to add that sounds completely crazy is that when we moved into this house 6 months ago, for some reason there was a small cinder block sitting on the floor in between the washer and dryer and nobody picked it up. I'm not sure why we just left it there but my boyfriend noticed, I'm not sure how long ago it started, that our cat was licking the cinder block. I'm wondering if maybe he does have some sort of deficiency and his eating the litter and licking the cinder block were giving him something he needs. We just threw the block outside recently and soon after is when he got sick. I'm not sure if he just started eating the kitty litter right after we threw the block outside but I've never noticed him doing it in the past. I have no idea if that makes any sense but I don't want to completely throw out that detail in case there's something important about it. I haven't told the vet about this yet because I feel kind of stupid saying I let my cat lick this cinder block for who knows long and didn't bother to throw it out.

Briana, have you ever noticed your cat eating litter? Even though his legs seem weak does he still seem alert and like everything is functioning properly except his legs, or does he appear sick overall?

Sorry this was so long but I wanted to give you as much information as possible. Maybe we can help each other along and let each other know if we find anything else out. Is there anything else you can share about your cat that might be helpful? Any similarities to my story?

Thanks!
My cat is going throught the exact same thing ( eating litter, walls etc.) lost balance and is now almost paralyzed in the front legs, can you please tell me what happened with your cat?

Hi goldilocks and welcome to the forum.

I believe that you are probably frantically searching for an answer to a so-far-undiagnosed issue with your kitty.....

Please read carefully what I'm going to say........

First of all, the answer to what happened to Remy21's cat is found within this thread.....a more careful read would have revealed it to you...I'm NOT criticizing YOU, though.....I've been in the same position as you, and, more than once. From those experiences, I would say to you that it's very dangerous to draw any conclusions from other cats' outcomes. Now, read that again: "from conclusions from other...outcomes".

So, you should not draw any conclusions about your cat's health from what may/may not have happened to another person's cat.

What could be helpful and beneficial is pinpointing and listing your cat's specific symptoms - and
  1. pursuing each for potential causations
  1. looking for "clusters" among that list which could be indicative of a disease/condition


Sometimes there are clues from other cases which may help - most other times, similar symptoms are purely coincidental.

So, if you want, we could engage with you - NOT to play 'amateur Vet' - but to help you consider possible issues which you could then bring forward to the people treating your cat.

Do you want to first tell us your cat's story (age, breed, medical history, first symptoms of the current problem, treatment to date)?

That would be a good starting point.

Just as a BTW.....is there a Vet University/teaching school where you are? Can you find out where your Vets are trained?

Mystery still

So, I've read the entire thread and am still confused as to what to do. My cat is 14 and, besides kidney stones surgery at age 5, has been healthy all of her life. She's an indoor cat and looks to be most similar to a grey calico. About 8 months ago, she got outside unbeknownst to me and was outside the entire night until I finally found her the next morning.

When I found her, her back legs were giving out on her badly. I took her to the vet where she was given a pain shot and I was told that because of her age, she could take some time to recover. They did xrays, blood work, and everything looked fine. No broken bones, all her organs were working properly, her blood work was fine. The vet said it looked like she may have overextended her joints, maybe trying to jump too high. I did find her in the neighbors patio where she had to craw really low to get underneath the fence. I know she crawled because she is adopted and has been declawed. I thought maybe she had overextended trying to get to an area that felt safe to her.

It's been almost 8 months and on and off again visits and talks with the vet as to what's going on with her. It's not diabetes. She doesn't seem to be in pain even after multiple physical examinations. The past month or so she has dropped down to 5 pounds. She has always weighed 6-7 pounds as she is a small cat and was thought to be the "runt" of the litter. The vet has always said that that was a healthy weight given her size, but that 5 pounds was starting to feel the bones and she'd like to see her gain weight. She suggested kitten dry food as it is high in calories, so I put her on that. She's been eating it fine for about 3 weeks, but no signs of significant gain. She continues to drink, eat, urinate, and use her litter box normally. She's still playful at times, but mostly just lays around and is wobbly when trying to make turns.


The vet prescribed a steroid this past week to increase her appetite and also to try and help her legs. She hasn't taken well to the medicine and vomits shortly after taking it.

Now, moving to the nutrition issue. She is a dry food cat, always has been. I tried some wet food with her this week and she ate all of it. I've noticed that she is strangely curious about the new caulking that was put in my bathroom last week and has been licking it. I haven't heard back from my vet on what the next step should be given that she isn't taking to the steroid.

I'm thinking I will try her on a wet food diet and see how she does. She also loves dry cat treats, but I wasn't aware just how awful dry food was for cats. Maybe this will help. I'm just not sure what other options are out there. My vet seems to be puzzled as much as I am.

Any suggestions?

Update

Just an update, my vet's attempt at making my cat more comfortable wasn't really answering my questions as to what was really going on with her. They were pursuing answers, but nothing was settled upon and I've been directed to see a specialist to find out what's really going on. Infection was ruled out due to the fact that she hasn't been running a fever and the wobbly legs has been persistent.

I've been directed to the nearest University specialists, which is about an hour away, for an MRI. My vet says all signs may be pointing to a cyst or cancer, perhaps in the spinal area. My questions was, how is it cancer when it's something that happened overnight? But she said the stress or an injury could trigger it.

She has gained back a pound in the past month, but still feels too thin. Around her back hip area seems sallow or sunken inward, but that could be the weight loss. She's always had a long back that dipped a bit as well.

I'm at a loss. It seems like my option is to get an MRI to find out what's really going on or see if a steroid will make her more comfortable and hope that it's just something that will fix itself. I don't care to just sit by and guess. Any idea how much a cat MRI costs or thoughts about what may be wrong?

Thanks

If you call the University clinic they should be able to tell you the costs. They might even be able to eMail you a schedule of fees.

We've had very good luck with University clinics--they see so many more difficult cases than a regular vet would. Well worth the 2-3 hour drive to get there.

I hope you get a diagnosis and treatment options soon! There's nothing worse than not knowing what's going on...

She doesn't seem to be in pain even after multiple physical examinations.
Were the joints out of place at all?
Does it seem to come & go like the joints have popped in & out?

Please ensure she no longer has access to the bathroom with new caulking, who knows what kind of harmful chemicals are in that stuff.

Sometimes when cats start licking things they shouldn't (concrete, litter etc) it's a sign of anaemia or a calcium imbalance, could also be a weird liking to the taste .

As for nutrition at this point I'd be inclined to feed whatever she will eat to ensure she doesn't lose any more weight, however a higher quality protein based wet food will be the best option.

I've been directed to the nearest University specialists, which is about an hour away, for an MRI. My vet says all signs may be pointing to a cyst or cancer, perhaps in the spinal area. My questions was, how is it cancer when it's something that happened overnight? But she said the stress or an injury could trigger it.

She has gained back a pound in the past month, but still feels too thin. Around her back hip area seems sallow or sunken inward, but that could be the weight loss. She's always had a long back that dipped a bit as well.

I'm at a loss. It seems like my option is to get an MRI to find out what's really going on or see if a steroid will make her more comfortable and hope that it's just something that will fix itself. I don't care to just sit by and guess. Any idea how much a cat MRI costs or thoughts about what may be wrong?

Thanks
My daughter has a rescue cat and he was not able to move his hind legs , he had to drag his body around. The vet could not find out what trigger his. The only everyone could think of that the cat had to had an old injury no one knew about. He did get better , I do not remember the meds the cat had to take but he got better and so far been OK . We think the cat may had jumped off his cat tree and landed the wrong way.

Exclamation Other possible causes

Other possible causes for hind end weakness when diabetes has first been ruled out (I apologize if these have already been mentioned. If they have, I overlooked them):

1. Flea products - even if they came from another pet, especially a dog. Cross contamination or direct application of over-the-counter flea products have been know to cause all kinds of issues, including neurological ones. To prevent, do not use OTC products on any pets in household, only ones from vet clinic. Let vet know if this might be a cause.

- More info, emergency what to do, how to report... - http://www.hartzvictims.org/

- Neurological issues developed after OTC flea products used - www.TinyTimmy.org

2. Convenia injectable antibiotic (or generic equivalent) - has been shown to cause problems like anemia and death in some pets, even those who have had it before. It's not even an appropriate antibiotic to use for dental procedures. See Dr. Pierson's info - http://catinfo.org/?link=convenia

- Also see FB page - "Convenia adverse reactions in cats/felines and dogs/canines" - http://on.fb.me/174b1Sz

- Avoid Convenia by telling vet before any procedure & put it in pet's chart since some will give it without consulting you first (College of Veterinarians of Ontario disciplined a vet and noted they should not give it without a consent and for using it for off-label reason - on a Guinea pig. The pet died.)

- FDA notes what Convenia is not suitable to treat - http://noconvenia.com/#Uses
- Emergency - What to do if Convenia is Used by Your Veterinarian for an Off-Label Purpose - http://noconvenia.com/#ACT

3. Steroid use can cause cats to become diabetic with symptoms of hind leg weakness, so it's good to re check that. Ideally your vet should also have a blood glucose meter in the clinic. Even a hand held one (they normally read slightly lower than the lab test).
- Example of such a cat - http://www.mypawsitivelypets.com/201...l#.UgHuYZK1GSo

Note - Diabetic cats can often be made well again and go into remission (get off insulin), but it's easier to prevent it in the first place by feeding low carb canned foods. Our cat vet confirmed that many vets are not familiar with how to achieve diabetic remission. Dr. Pierson's Diabetes info - http://catinfo.org/?link=felinediabetes

- Low carb or a balanced raw diet can reduce or eliminate inflammation so steroids may never be needed. http://feline-nutrition.org/one-page-guides

- Short article by Dr. Gaskin why so many cats end up diabetic - http://msvets.com/FelineDiabetes.html

- Diabetic Cats in Need can assist people in Canada and the USA with diabetic cats and help prevent cats from being euthanized. Financial and other assistance may be available. - http://fdmb-cin.blogspot.ca/

weak hind legs, dizziness, lethargy, bloodwork fine, baffled!

Hi all,
this is my first time posting here although i have followed many threads on various occasions. One of my cats is showing symptoms which are similar to many posted in this thread. I have outlined symptoms below.
Beekeeps seems to have the same issue too with her cat, I wonder whether there has been any development?

Our vet is stumped and cannot suggest anything constructive. We should be doing a test for Thyroid soon to check for that too.

SYMPTOMS AND INFO:
My cat has been very weak on the hind legs, walking as though his is dizzy. He loses his balance easily. He is lethargic most of the time and barely has the strength to walk around. He eats reluctantly most of the time and i have to hand feed him to entice him to eat. He kind of 'stares' very often with a dead gaze...
He moans when i pick him up. He does enjoy being brushed... I suspect he doesn't have the energy to groom himself. He seems to have dandruff too now.

He has just started shaking today... hind legs and also his head I cannot comment about his litter usage as I have 3 cats.

His bloodwork is all fine, no sign of diabetes either. Thyroid hasn't been tested yet.
He eats wet food, mostly canned Whiskas as he doesn't like much else. Sometimes he accepts to eat the raw food that I feed my other cats. Now he is eating canned tuna sometimes.
He has lost quit a bit of weight too

We can't determine his age as he was adopted as an older cat. He is definitely older than 5yrs. He does go out, but not very far, mostly in surrounding gardens or small field next door.

We vaccinated him a few months ago [vet thinks this might be a cause] and recently had to sedate him to take his blood to be tested. The sedation had a very strong impact on him - it knocked him out very much.

He had one good day last week - more energy and he even jumped onto a low wall! That was the only day and after that, back to usual.

We are in constant contact with out vet who is baffled by this.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thank you!

Update

An update on my cat. I took her off the steroid that the vet gave b/c she was throwing it up. The vet basically said she prescribed it to hopefully make her more comfortable. It just seemed like they were throwing darts in the dark at that point and my cat didn't seem to be in pain from her visits to the vet and their assessment.

The only other thing I didn't mention in my previous posts was that she sometimes has a slight shaking in her front legs when she's sitting straight up. She's always sort of had these nervous, jumpy twitches though since she was a kitten. She tends to get them when she is focused on something or excited and playing. I'm not sure if that means anything or if that's normal. I just thought it worth mentioning since my vet has throne the "neurological" word around as of late.

I'm not quite sure what else to do, honestly. Other than spend thousands to get a scan or make a specialist appointment to have them guess at what it is. She's still slowly putting a few ounces back on. I have since been feeding her low card, dry kitten food for increased caloric intake. After reading this board, I've tried to introduce wet food into her diet. I bought a low-carb wet food and an all-protein, natural wet food. I give her half a can twice a day and make sure that it is slightly warm. At first, she was just licking the juices off of it, but has since taken to first licking off the juice, leaving the dish for an hour, then eating what's left. If anyone has any suggestions on how to get her to eat more, please let me know. My main concern now is getting her weight back up. Please, take into consideration that she is 14 years old, so weight loss is somewhat expected in the later years, but she has definitely lost some due to whatever it is that has happened to her.




Below are answers to some previous questions:

>>Was the thyroid hormone level tested? Often listed as T4 or Thyroxine.

I'm not sure. I will have to contact the vet, but they said they ran a "full test" on her. I would hate to assume thyroid was included and wasn't. What is the significance to this in regards to her back legs? Would it not show up in blood work as well? I know the thyroid pretty much connects to all organs, but she has definitely had a run on organ work and everything checked out according to the vet.

>>Did you get a copy of the bloodwork?

It's on file and I'm planning on getting her records this week. I'm seeking a second opinion on her condition.

>>Were the joints out of place at all?

The vet didn't mention popped-out joints. She said they were over-extended a bit, but she didn't see anything in addition.

>>Does it seem to come & go like the joints have popped in & out?

It doesn't really come and go. Some days it seems definitely worse, or when she tries to move in a particular direction. One side seems worse than the other I've noticed. Her back left leg seems to turn in a bit as if she's found the most efficient way to walk with whatever is ailing her. It's not noticeable to anyone probably, but I notice it.

>>Please ensure she no longer has access to the bathroom with new caulking, who knows what kind of harmful chemicals are in that stuff.

She has stopped licking weird things, thankfully. She has always, always loved to chew on photos though since she was a kitten.

>>Sometimes when cats start licking things they shouldn't (concrete, litter etc) it's a sign of anaemia or a calcium imbalance, could also be a weird liking to the taste .

She hasn't been licking anything else thankfully.

>>As for nutrition at this point I'd be inclined to feed whatever she will eat to ensure she doesn't lose any more weight, however a higher quality protein based wet food will be the best option.

I have bought a combination of natural, low grain kitten food since the vet suggested kitten food for increased caloric intake and since she is used to dry food. BUT I have been giving her canned food daily. She was reluctant at first and just licked the juice off of it. Now she seems to be eating more of it. I bought her a low carb wet food and a no grain, natural wet food. I'm hoping to move her off of the dry and get her on high protein.

Update addition

Also, it's worth mentioning again that this ailment occurred after my cat got outside one night. I finally found her and whereas one day she was fine, afterwards she has had issues with mobility in her back legs. She is clumsy in the back, unable to really jump up high anymore, and just seems to struggle all together. Sometimes it's not as bad as other times.

One thing that I've thought about that causes neurological issues is toxoplasmosis. Has anyone had any encounters with this in cats? The only reason I suggest it is because she got outside and has always been an indoor cat. If she came in contact with something that night, she may have gotten it. Any ideas?

He is not getting better or worse. The vet did the ELISA FIP test which turned positive. I do not trust this test. We have one more cat that had similar problems the vet did the same FIP test and recommended euthanasia. We did not do it, the cat healed and haven't had any problems since then (>2.5 years). Recently we have found that cat had ascarides worms (to our surprise as we use the Stronghold regularly and he does not have access outside of our apartment). I had quite an argument with the vet as he was diagnosing the FIP from the test only (the cat has no other usual FIP symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea, fever etc.). The vet also said that this might be a blod block or neurological issue combined with the worms (ascarides). I'll keep you updated regarding our progress.

Hi, demonicek. Unfortunately, zsvoboda hasn't signed on since February of 2008. Are you having similar problems with your cat?

Question Question

I hope everyone hasn't dropped off of this board. I feel there are so many questions still lingering. I've been doing more investigating as I hate to be stumped and want to know why all of the sudden my cat couldn't walk correctly and was losing weight. It's almost been a year and no one has been able to tell me what happened.

An article came out today about information regarding Chris McCandless' death (the young that had ventured out alone to Alaska and was found dead near the bus he inhabited... in the early 90s I believe). Something got me questioning plant neuro toxins, which is what they believe ultimately caused Chris' body to degenerate. Has anyone ever encountered plant neurotoxins in their pets? It got me wondering.

My cat has an infatuation with eating anything and everything plant-wise that is green. I have to watch her every time I let her out on the back patio or make sure all greenery is put up. It made me wonder if maybe she got into something that night she escaped. Thank you internet, but I found that the sweet pea plant grows around my house and was growing that time of year...and is very toxic to humans and animals. All of the symptoms were ones that my cat was having.

Everlasting Pea. (Common names include Sweet Pea, Perennial Pea). Toxic to cats, dogs and horses. Signs of poisoning include Weakness, lethargy, pacing, head pressing, tremors, seizures and possibly death. It is also very common for the hind quarters in animals that are exposed to this plant to become significantly weakened, making it difficult to walk. Weight loss is also a symptom.


She has certain tremors or shakes it looks like in her legs and her hind quarters seem to be the ones suffering the most. She experienced weight loss for the first time in her 14 years right after that night. Her legs were very faulty that morning after as well. I don't know if symptoms should show up that soon, but I wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts.

Hi everyone.
New to this forum and I'm glad that I stumbled upon it! Thank you everyone (a special shout-out to ryebread!) for sharing your experiences & tips.

We have 03 indoor cats which we are fostering. 07-mth old Sasha suddenly developed weak hindquarters about 10 days ago. Sasha has now regained 90% of her strength & 'attitude-ness' and on the road to full recovery (we hope!). Jumps from sofa to sofa without much thought or trouble & starts scratching stuff, climbing & all.... sigh, back to her old self.

Anyway, what she had were the usual symptoms that many here have described. No evidence of physical abnormalities were found on her and we gathered too that she's not in pain (no nastiness/hissing/meowing/struggling when handled).

Tired, lethargic, losing weight fast, not eating well & goes 'splat' whenever she gets down from heights (even low ones). It's really sad to see her like that. We suspect that it had to be her nutrition. They are all fed wet food as their main diet; mainly canned wet seafood with dry food for snacks.

We did not take her to the vet. Vets here wont sell vitamins/supplements to you unless you bring your cat in for consultation etc and where I'm sure they'll run the full gamut of tests. Costs are dear as well.

So, we tried what ryebread suggested (Vit E & Potassium...) before anything else.
More info here>> http://www.vetinfo.com/potassium-supplements-cats.html
Should this fail, its the vet then.

What we did:
1. Do away with dry food.
2. Cut out the seafood
3. Palm fed her a 'feather & fur' diet (mostly chicken flakes w/some thick broth) for her 3 daily meals. Not forcibly.
4. Gave her Nurish-UM Nutritional Supplement (containing Vit E & Potassium; bought off the shelf at a pet store); twice daily; forcibly with a syringe for the first 5 days! Its once a day now. Forcibly still
5. Let her rest where and whenever she pleases as long as its safe
6. Give lots of care, love, attention & affection!
7. Pray (yes!)

Its been a week today since we started her on this 'diet'. Things are looking pretty good so far. Her right hind leg points slightly inward when she walks though but I'm certain in time to come it'll be back to normal.

But now she prefers ONLY CHICKEN!!!

UPDATE:

Sasha has made a full recovery!
We've stopped the supplements & varied her diet to chicken, meat & seafood (canned cat food).
And leave dry food around all day for snacks.

i had to register to express my thanx here.
To cut a long story short, my cat, a Napoleon, actually suffered similar symptoms.

Occurred in 2 phases
1) First phase, lose of strength in limbs treated and recovered with potassium supplements
2) Actually thought all is well and cut down on potassium doses, resulting in a relapse bordering on paralysis limbs down, after 2 weeks of potassium sups again, i had him running as per yesterday

I'm wondering if the supplements will be required lifelong in his instances?

Welcome to the forum, kibt !

First off, I hope that you are NOT playing amateur-googleing-veterinarian !

You will need a competent feline Veterinarian....I have no idea where in the world you are, so it's difficult to give you specific direction on that front...if there is a cat-only Vet or clinic accessible to you, that would be a good place to start.

With a competent Vet on board, it is helpful if we, ourselves, have an general understanding of the issue - in this case (apparently) potassium levels in cats - that is something many people can absorb from this plain-language coverage of the topic: All About Potassium (link) (For now, ignore the fact that this site is focused on kidney disease....the general principles covered there apply to all small cats)

Hope those two suggestions are helpful !

Thank you for your advices, in no way would i want to depend on google for the answers. I'm currently residing in China because of work, and sad to mention, the medical scene and in specific for cats are lacking over here. For example. there aint any DNA testing for animals over here.

I had been discussing with my vet and he has yet to come across similar symptoms, and he had given the go ahead to try the potassium supplements as he dont see any harm if given in proper doses.

He was in obvious pain and let me know. Took him to vet, then emergency vet, etc. X-Rays, blood work, antibiotics, prednisone, pain meds, enema, etc... was performed. I added in more supplements, he eats a fabulous diet...Nobody could find anything wrong. He was in pain constantly, crying whenever he had to move. I had to bring him food and water, he would eat. He would drag himself to the litterbox which I set his petbed next to, when I couldn't lift him to it when I wasn't home.

Then, my primary vet wanted to use a laser. I would try anything at this point, it was awful to hear him cry with pain, and see him like that. As long as he didn't walk on his hind legs, he was okay laying on his side. So, he had a few minutes of laser across his mid to lower spine area. I packed him up and brought him home to his petbed. They were suspecting some kind of trauma or injury to spine area which affected legs... I will try anything!

When I opened the crate, he walked out, walked around (kind of fumbling a little) and seemed bright, happy, meowing with joy and chatty with me. He sat down, then got up went to his litterbox to use it, then walked around me for a few, then went to his bed to lay down. I am blown away! Who knew? I wanted to make sure I got the word out, as I was stumped at what was wrong with him and nothing helped him. He is still uncomfortable, and I have several more appointments for laser. It's obvious he now has some kind of injury which could take weeks and weeks to heal up. The laser I believe from what I saw today will help and assist with moving along his healing.

I want to be sure that I registered so I could post to this forum, to bring awareness that this is one more thing to possibly ask your vet or try! I have HOPE and I am happy!!! We'll see over the coming weeks!

Hi CAtWalking, I wondered if you were still around? I'm so glad youposted about the cat laser thing. My darling 16 year old cat was jumping up trees (a running launch) just a few months ago but suddenly lost the use of her rear legs. It was awful. I had to take food and water to her - vets didnt know what was wrong until my primary vet said it was arthritis. I just do not accept this. She gave me Metacam and then we both agreed if it didnt work, we would ahvew her pts. Then I started researching online. Long story short - I took her off the Metacam and took her to see a homeopathic vet. The vet gave her a small session (two minutes) of laser therapy and she takes arnica tablets. She is now running up the stairs!! I wanted to ask you for an update. I want to get it out there also that laser therapy might be an option for cats with weak hind legs.


Thanks,

Kris

Moomin, my Burmese cat (the one who is now running up the stairs) suddenly got a stronger voice and started to be really demanding (asking for me to do this and that lol). Very odd!!
