Message 964997 - Posted: 21 Jan 2010, 20:50:15 UTC - in response to Message 964962.  

Thoughts and prayers coming your way, Mark. For what it's worth, my aunt had a cat that was 12 years old. Out of the blue she exhibited symptoms similar to what you described, unable to stand, apparent paralysis to her back legs. It lasted a couple days and she bounced back. At the time the vet thought perhaps it was a stroke, but due to the rapid recovery, tests he ran, and no subsequent symptoms he discounted that diagnosis. He suggested that it may have been a physical injury such as a fall or a not-so-graceful landing when jumping off of something that might have tweaked her spine or a nerve. "Candy" lived another 4 years and never had another episode like that again finally succumbing to kidney failure that was just a product of her advanced age. Jake, Alexis, Sasquatch and I all send best wishes to Callie.

Thinking of you and the kitties.
