Hello , Welcome to Just Answer ,

I am DrD , I will try to answer to your question ,

Does Peanut stumbles while she is walking or she can not walk at all meaning that she can not use any of her legs ? Can you please tell me more ?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
all four legs are active
she pushes herself up on her front legs, but the back legs are splayed out like a frogs

shes not really walking more pushing/pulling herself around

I dont live in the states so the cost to call would be very expensive

Thank you,

"she pushes herself up on her front legs, but the back legs are splayed out like a frogs"

I would take this kitten to a veterinarian for hands on exam to make sure that she does not have any neurological deficit (s) . She may need some supportive treatment even she does not have any neurological problem (s) . I am sorry that I can not recommend anything else at this moment . Would you please come back and post the results of the clinical exam ?

I hope this helps. Thank you.
