Dr. Fox had a letter in his column recently from a lady whose cat suddenly lost 
control of her back legs and was screaming constantly.  he said this often 
happens expecially with older cats.  they develope a blood clot and it lodges 
in the spie just before the hind legs, causing paralysis.  if you get to the 
hospital fast enough, can remove/disolve the clot releaving the painand 
paralysis.  not so with an older cat, they usually cnnot take the anethesia.

This happened to my sister in laws 18 year old cat and they gave the 
meds to dissolve clots (don't know what you would need anesthesia for), 
my SIL had to express her kitties bladder and do physical therapy on his 
back legs for about a month but after her kitty was back to normal and 
lived another 2 years.  Sometimes the clots will reoccur but didn't in 
her kitties case.



if you get to the hospital fast enough, can remove/dissolve the clot releaving 
the pain and paralysis.  not so with an older cat, they usually cannot take the 
anethesia.

2009-08-30 Thread gary
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.

Thank you all for the words of support. Sweet Darcy went downhill so fast, 
becoming unable to walk. I drove to an emergency clinic where they did their 
best for her through the  weekend. 

Yesterday we helped her to the Bridge, knowing there was just no more anyone 
could do. Her FeLv wouldn't let her fight off the ravages of whatever attacked 
her - probably a cancer that centered in her nervous system. 

We miss her dreadfully but know she had a good life with us, short though it

knowledge she was truly loved, and release from her pain. Rest in  
peace, sweet Darcy.
