He can only move its head and lays down.has not control of his down body.for sure not hited by anything since he is a feral and does not go to the stret or aproach believes thats a neuro problem.has been guven antiflamotory med but did not improve. Paints a little. I would like to have an idea if it can be a temporary situation and reversible before making a more drastic desicion.he has been force feeding and eats well.this kitten is about 10 months and was TNR(trapped neuter released)5 months ago and acted normal.

Did your vet do x rays?
Is he able to pass urine and stool on his own?
If you press hard between his toes on the hind legs does he show any signs that he feels what you are doing?
Have you checked him all over for ticks
How long was he on anti inflammatory meds and what medication was it
Did your vet say anything about testing for toxoplasmosis?
