OK so as of today kitten is alive (in no pain) and still in kitty "critical" condition at the vet's. She is doing much better today. She developed hypothermia overnight but as of this afternoon her temperature was normal and she is walking normal again! She walks a little bit and lays back down (she is in isolation in a cage at the vet's)She is eating also. Besides being severly malnourished still, she seems to be doing much better then anyone anticipated. The only thing is her front paws seem to be stuck in a clenching position. The best way to describe it would be like she wants to scratch. Her fingers are spread out. I'm doing a full blood work done and i wont get the results back until tomorrow but I am curious as to what is going on with her front paws. Is it possible that she just had a seizure to begin with that caused temporary paralysis in her hind legs and its taking a little bit longer for the front to come back? Thanks again.

Hello there,Seizures don't result in paralysis. Stroke activity can, but that would be very uncommon in a cat this age. Head trauma, encephalitis, brain parasites, hydrocephali, toxin ingestions, viral infection, embolisms and aneurysms are all possible. Supportive care, antibiotics and anti-inflammatories are the main treatment options. She is likely in isolation as rabies cannot be ruled out at this point either.
