A friend found her nd her siblings under an abandoned house.

Customer Question

A friend found her nd her siblings under an abandoned house. Started feeding them. At first she was fine. Later she came out dragging both hind legs. She was brought to me yesterday. She's strong nd active. Now she carries both legs sticking straight forward nd drags along on her poor little butt when she travels. She can move the legs. I fold them up under her when she's eating nd she stands on them. But won't walk on them. Dislocated hips?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did the cat have a fall?
Customer: She doesn't know. One day it came out fine, the next it wasn't.
JA: It might be a fracture. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Pumpkin. Her tummy was bloating from not being able to stand nd potty properly, plus her little privates are sore from dragging on the ground. We started feeding her pumpkin in her food to help her potty
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Pumpkin?
Customer: Can't think of anything. It's both legs. I can move them nd she tries to move them. Not I pain but cries sometimes when it's potty time. She's strong. Nd sooooo sweet nd trusting.
