JACustomer, thanks for your question.Can you attach a video of the kitten walking?
Thanks, Customer.It's hard to tell exactly what is going on with this baby. Here are my concerns:1) Broken rear leg or legs. 2) Dislocation at hip on one or both sides. 3) Tendon, ligament or nerve damage.Ideally, this baby would be examined by a veterinarian and some x-rays taken to see how bad the injury is. A break may require amputation or splinting, the dislocation may require reduction and other damage may improve overtime or leave this baby unable to walk normally forever (sometimes this improves with time).Until you're able to have her examined, I would keep her quarantined in a small area where she cannot climb or jump. Offer canned food or softened kibble (use water) so that she can eat. Provide a litter box as it looks like she should still be able to use the bathroom normally.There are no pain meds OTC for humans that kittens can safely take, so please avoid giving anything in an attempt to make her feel better. Most of these will cause liver and/or kidney failure and subsequent death.
