I have a 1 month old kitten that was doing just fine until 2 days ago when i found it had somehow got into a plastic clothes basket with its only other sister kitten. The other kitten climbed out when i saw them but this one was sleeping and when i checked a few hours later it was still there. I picked it up and put it on the floor and noticed it was sorta dragging its hind legs, like it could not stand up straight. That was around 6 pm on Tuesday. Tuesday morning it was fine. Yesterday it was still was the same.. I thought maybe it got its hind legs stuck in the open handle of the basket and broke its hind legs or pulled them out of joint. This morning it was no better and a bit worse matter of fact, seems to be struggling with the front legs. so i took it to the vet at 4.30 today. He didnt take xrays and gave it 3 injections. A pain killer, a anti inflammatory and a antibiotic. He told me to call him at 8 in the morning if there is no change in the condition and he will take xrays. So far no change going on 5 hours later. Kitten is still nursing and has been drinking water and bits of kibble for maybe about a week. Although it seems to not have an appetite today except for nursing from mama. About a 1/2 hour ago i put it in the litter box and saw it pee but Ive only saw 3 poos and i dont know which kitten did 2 of them. I saw the other one do it last night. Anyone ever hear of anything like this? I am so worried about the little guy... I have a feeling its going to be a long night....
