Just that she's still fighting and eating, but she basically has no control over her limbs at all now, and she's getting weaker I don't know what to do! I don't want her to suffer, but at the same time she's still fighting so I don't want to give up either. I've never dealt with anything like this before

The vet had no idea what was the matter with her, I'm taking her in again tonight and we'll see what he says

Is she showing any sign of trembling or unusual jerky movements beyond the weakness of the back legs? I'm just trying to figure out what this could be so I've been researching.

Cerebellar hypoplasia is a condition that affects both cats and dogs. Here's more info on that: More info on Cerebellar Hypoplasia

Just trying to help Katie. (((hugs)))

Thanks Kass I thought of that, but don't kittens usually get that from their mothers having distemper while pregnant? I didn't think it was sudden onset but as of now its gone way beyond weakness in her back legs, she can't stand, walk, anything, she just lays there like a wet dish rag, she can barely pick up her head I'm just amazed that she is still really making an effort to eat and drink and just yesterday morning she wobbled her way (this when she sould still walk a little) into the litterbox. Her ears and gums are pink, eyes bright, she is warm, not hot, not cold.... i keep mentally comparing it to that disease where your body ages much faster than your mind? My little Iz is still in there, but her body is giving out on her. Like I told Eileen earlier, she'll look at me and give me a little meow and in her eyes I see her asking me what is going on, why is this happening? All I can tell her is don't give up, we can beat this and she'll meow back like "ok" I just can't watch her struggle, but I really don't want to give up while she's obviously still fighting, I feel like I'm failing her

I thought I would throw that info out there, just in case. From what I have read, it usually happens from birth but thought I would include that since it might spur the vet to think of something similar.

Oh man, I'm so sorry. I wish so much I had the answer Katie. I'm in tears just reading your recent post but it is really positive that she has so much fight in her. Maybe it is some type of infection and that's why it's taking down each part of her system?

Hang in there.

You know, when I first saw her losing control of her back legs, "wobble kitty" is what I immediately thought of and it would have been fine if it wouldn't have gotten worse... the only other thing I could think of was a stroke, but I thought whatever damage that was going to be done was done immediately and it didn't get worse? She's on a strong anti-biotic, Clinacydin or something very similar to that because the vet suspected a possible spinal infection, but even with the meds she's been getting worse so I don't think its any kind of infection, I kept hoping it was one of those get worse before it gets better things? apparently not though This is truly boggling my mind and I think even if I could afford the MRI it may not tell us what is wrong.

Thanks so much for your concern, everybody!

Izzy is gone.... I took her into the vet and she was staying overnight to be on an IV and she went into cardiac arrest around 8:45. The vet still has no idea what was wrong. I'll post in Crossing the Bridge
