Wow Nat that sounds terrible. Almost wish it was a broken bone at least you would have an answer.

Continued vibes for Damita.

The possiblity that this isn't just in her paw, the nerve damage, makes me sick to my stomach. Because if this is in her whole body....there's no quality of life.

Poor Damita! She must be very confused about what is happening. Tell her Seb says welcome to the Note-in-File Club! Sending lots of positive thoughts for this to be just a temporary thing.

Hmmmm....now I've got to deal with the LB issue. She can't dig. She can't bury. She was a feral, if she can't dig/bury....she won't go potty. I set up a low-sided LB for her, her cat bed, a blanket, food, & water in one spot. She's basically just sitting in one place. She hadn't moved from where she sat when she left the carrier when I checked on her....45 mins later.

oh dear C'mon Damita, please be ok
post #37 of 92
Oh no, poor girl! Any idea what the damage is from?

I know her life is difficult as it is - will she be able to manage without the use of a paw?

More for that sweet girl!

I really truly had no idea what happened. Basically, she was fine last night at midnight when she had supper. At 7am this morning she wasn't using her paw. Whatever happened did so in those 7 horus.

Now, the vet said that if it is a temporary thing....she probably just landed wrong (you know, blind cats take death defying leaps off lord knows where all the time....good luck stopping them! ). He compared that possiblity to you waking up after sleeping on your hand.

The other possiblity is that she got stepped on, got her foot shut in a door, or who knows what. Now, I've got an 85# dog & a 55# dog that could've stepped on her. Or she might've been playing "footsie" under the front door when dad left this AM (he said he never saw her this morning)....and had her foot slammed in the door. If that is indeed the case....she won't ever have use of her paw again.

With everything Damita has been through in her life, I am confident that she'll take this in stride. If it comes down to it, I will make a decision that might be needed.

I just got home from work, she's curled into a tiny ball under mom/dads bed....I am not going to disturb her until it's suppertime....then I'll be back to let you know if her paw is functioning at all or not.

A link to pics & videos.


Her paw is definately better tonight, I'm positive. She is now setting it flat, whereas this AM it was always curled under. I'm daring to get my hopes up. My girl's a fighter.

What a sweet wonderful girl! I was going to ask if she was diabetic, but it sounds like an injury now.

No improvement from last night to this morning, I was hoping she'd have more use of the foot.

Somehow she's figured out how to get into the big rubbermaid tub I use as a litterbox. I set her up a small one on the floor & she won't use it. She's also getting onto the table to eat by herself.

Well at least she figured out how to get into the litter box and on the table!
I really hope she gets more use of it!! Love the new Siggy of her by the way, its cute! Healing coming her way!
