My first FeLV kitty to die had the rear legs stop working and he was unable to eliminate on his own. They checked and it was not a clot, they believed it to be a neurological problem. Most cats with a clot are - as you described - in a lot of pain. With my boy there didn't seem to be any pain. I have seen several others post about similar problems in FeLV cats, I guess it is one of the things that can happen to them.
