Now DO NOT do any of these things untill you have a diagnosis, because as I said in my last post-many animals with paraylsis need complete crate rest.
If your cat has had an FCE or does need physio though-here is what we did:
We first helped her learn how to stand again. She was paralysed in her back and tail, so we would put our hands under her and hold up her front and back to get her used to standing again. As she got stronger, we would continue supporting the front and back, and then slowly move our hands away from her back legs. She would hold them up for awhile, and when she got tired, we would hold onto her back legs again.
When we first started that exercise she could barely stand on her own at all, but within about a week she was standing well. When she got even better at standing, we would support her under her back legs and she would walk. We would hold up the back legs for her so she could get into the motion. She started walking on all four legs with no assistance after about three weeks, although this was not walking correctly, and she would get tired easily-it was still great. As she has progressed she has just got better and better.
Part of the physio we gave her was massage. We would rub, scratch and tickle her whole body, but really worked on her back legs and tail. We would rub the muscles and stretch them a little bit. We would gently tug on her legs (gently being the key word here), and gently move them around for her (gently being the key word again).
