    First, congratulate me on five kittens!

    one kitten got injured by the door swinging or something, and now its legs aren't working very well. it can probably move them, the problem might just be from the hocks down. When it goes around, it sorta drags the back legs behind it. [​IMG]

    Congratulations on the five kittens!

    I suspect it's a good time for a veterinarian to take a look. I had one with a similar accident, then dragged it's legs, and it had some spine damage. They are really fragile when so little. Several weeks on steroids helped it regain the leg usage. We later had accupuncture, and it made a huge difference!

    Good luck!
