We have 2 indoor male cats, but over the past 8 months I started feeding some outside stray cats.One was a female kitten, we named her Misty. She seemed very healthy and active, was very affectionate.Then 4 months ago we noticed her left eye had been hurt, it was a murky color.She was also limping.So we brought her inside until she got better.During the fist few weeks she would not drink water, I had to give it to her with a syringe.Fearing that she would die we took her to the vet, but they couldn't determine what was wrong with her, sent us home with an eyedropper and amoxidrops. We treated her with both.But only the amoxidrops seem to help. She started drinking water out of a bowl, but I'd have to hold the bowl in front of her.Now in the past week she growls and bites us when we try to pick her up.Often growls and her body jerks when she's lying by herself.She seem to have problems with bowel movements as well, her eye is no better, and she still limps.I was hoping by posting here someone might've have had a cat with the same symptons and have an idea of what we can do for her. Thanks.
