Not sure about CH because she has just now gotten wobbly like this.  She hasn't 
always been this unsteady on her feet.  I haven't watched the video yet though. 
 I wish it was just CH because they say that doesn't progress any further. 
“I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are 
profitable to the human race or doesn’t….the pain which it inflicts upon 
unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me 
sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.” – Mark Twain

the info. Diabetes is not good even though it's treatable. I do hope that you 
get more blood work done even though you stated the bloodwork was okay a couple 
of months ago. Have you noticed an increase in fluids or urination? Keep us 
posted, I will be thinking of you. You have helped me in so many ways in the 
past.  What meds did your vet give for the uveitis? Good luck, Maureen!

[Felvtalk] What_could_it_be? Maureen,She could be a CH Kitty..."Cerebellar 
Hypoplasia" this can happen in both cats and dogs at a young age. Some are born 
with it. It is a Brain Neuro issue. It can affect any kitty whether they are 
FELV or not.I have 2 kitties that have this as they are Siamese. One is about 
6-7 months old and the other is a senior. You can also go to facebook and look 
this up under this. (Cerebellar Hypoplasia Kitties) I'm on the group as well. 
It will give you more details. There is help and a great deal of knowledge.You 
can google this as well.My suggestion is to take the kitty to the Vet for 
blood-work. If the blood-work comes back clean ask your Vet about this. A good 
Vet will make it more understanding for you.Some animal shelters will 
euthanized both kittens/cats/puppies/dogs that have this. They don't want to 
deal with a special needs animal. My kitties came from out of state 
shelters.These animals can live very full lives. They just aren't normal they 
can eat, play, sleep, and use the potty like others but slower with handicaps.

I have a FeLV kitten that I'm fostering.  She's six or seven months old.  She's 
the one I emailed about a couple months ago with uveitis.  The uveitis never 
has completely cleared up.  But now I'm not sure what's going on.  Her back 
legs are kind of wobbly.  It's not bad enough that my husband has noticed yet, 
but I can see it.  It's like she's slightly drunk.  She's walking okay with the 
front legs but her back legs give way a little or something when she's walking. 
 She's eating and going to the bathroom.  She doesn't run around and play as 
much as the other cats do, but never really has.  She's just a real mellow and 
loving kitten and I just thought that must be why she's not as playful.  I'm 
not sure though.  She's not growing a lot too.  The other kitten her age, not 
related, has grown much faster than she has.

So any ideas?  Why do you guys think she's started getting wobbly in the back 
legs.  She can still jump on things but not as sure-footed as the others.  I 
don't know if her muscles are getting weak or if she's anemic or what.  A 
couple months ago her bloodwork at the vet's office was okay.  I assume this is 
FeLV related but before I go to the vet I'd like to be prepared and have some 
ideas of what's going on.
