    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Flo and my cat's name is Cali. She's a beautiful and sweet, almost 11, Tuxedo w/ big green eyes.

    For the past almost 2 years, I've been trying to figure out what's wrong w/ her front paws. The right one in particular. They both twitch but her right leg twitches every time she puts in down. The vets (i tried a few( ran a battery of tests but can't figure out what's wrong so the diagnostic is that it might be neurological. Her right leg has now shrank in diameter as there's some muscles atrophy, but the shoulders are apparently strong. However, my concern is that the toes of her paw are becoming deformed and have started to overlap to the point where she can't open her paw wide anymore. The vets are telling me that based on the x-ray it doesn't seem to be arthritis.

    I'd like to stop this from getting worse, but I just don't know what to do since no one seems to know where this is coming from.

    Have you ever seen this? Thanks!

    Flo

    A very warm welcome to the forum, dear Flo.

    Re your cat. Try reposting in the 'Cat' section, in the 'Health' sub-section. I'm sure someone will be able to advise you.

    Moved over to the cat section for you and I hope there is someone here who may be able to offer some help or advice.

    It's such a worry when the medics say they don't know what's wrong... :confused: Is there such a thing as a cat physiotherapist?

    I've heard of them and that's something i'm considering. I'm also considering acupuncture.
