Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
I am sorry to hear you are worried about your cat. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
How long has she been like this? She is unable to walk at all?
When you say she has a possible recent pregnancy, do you mean she had kittens, or that she just may have become pregnant? If she might be pregnant, how long ago was she in heat; when would the kittens be due?
Sorry for the questions! Since I can't see and examine her, the more information I have the more I can be of help. This is an Info Request, to help me answer your question about her.
If she can't move or use her hind legs, I am very worried about her. That discharge is of concern as well. She might have an infection that is affecting her spinal cord.
If you pinch her toes, does she act like she feels it? Can she move her back feet and legs at all? If she can't, something is affecting her spinal cord, and the sooner she gets medical attention the better.
If you look at her gums, do they look pink, or pale?
Pulling back on the feet is a reflex, and does not necessarily mean she knows you are touching her feet.
If her gums are pale, this may be an emergency. I would not be trying to treat my own cat at home with these symptoms. If she can't use her back legs, the more time that passes the more there is a chance she may not get better. She needs medical attention, as soon as possible.
It is good she has sensation, but not good that she has pale gums, cannot stand up, and has a discharge. If I could, I would begin with a good examination: feeling her abdomen to see if her uterus is enlarged or painful, check her lymph nodes, examine the discharge she has for infection, listen to her heart, feel her pulses, take her temperature. If she had a fever (over 103 by rectal thermometer), and if the discharge looks like infection, I would probably start antibiotics.
I am so worried she can't stand up. I wish I had a home remedy that would help her, but if this were my own cat, I could not do much for her at home other than examine her and try to determine what the problem is.
Please let me know how she is doing.
How is she doing today? Can I help with or answer anything else?
