I rescued a kitty who had been hit by a car and his back legs and tail were completely paralyzed. Vet ordered crate rest for a week then came and checked him again and he can now move the upper parts of his back legs, but can't move or feel his hocks or feet. The vet ordered another two weeks of confinement (less strict, he is allowed to move around a little, we just have to be very careful not to let him overdo it.) I've been keeping him as still as possible, but inevitably he ends up moving around a little bit here and there. When he walks, his hocks bend back and the front of his paws drag the ground. He is continent from what I can tell, but he is unable (and not allowed) to move to a litter box. When I'm awake, I keep him on the bed with me, but as he's tried to jump off and roam around a couple times in the past, I have had to resort to leaving him in a carrier while I sleep. No matter how much he drinks, he pees a LOT. I've put 3+ pads in the bottom of the carrier, and as soon as he pees, all are soaked, as well as the bottom of the plastic carrier where he sits. So, of course, it gets his feet and hocks wet. I tried putting diapers on him, but he won't leave them on. He always manages to wiggle right out of them, and the ones that are a close fit for him are for newborns and aren't nearly absorbant enough. Because he has a back injury, I'm not supposed to give him a bath (I've still had to a couple times when he was soaked and covered in poop), so I've been doing my best to clean him with baby wipes. Anyway, because of the friction of him dragging them when he tries to walk, as well as being peed on so often, his little toes are getting a LOT of sores on them and are very raw. I've considered putting socks on them, which would definitely help while he tries to move around, but would likely be counterproductive if they were soaked with urine and chafing him. I just don't know what to do to keep him clean/dry and to keep his little toes from getting hurt. Please help, any advice is very appreciated and i need it ASAP. His paws are very raw and were even bleeding last night. I desperately want to fix this issue, I just don't know how. Also, the vet doesn't seem to hopeful about him getting use of his hocks and feet back, so I've been looking into supportive devices for him. He gets around on his own, just not well. I feel like a drag bag would hinder him, as he's not completely paralyzed and a wheelchair seems like overkill seeing as he has the strength and can produce the motion to walk in his back legs (he just can't control his hock/move his foot to support the motion), so I've been looking into hock braces/splints. I haven't found any information about whether these can be used on cats with full hock paralysis rather than just weakness, or if so what type would be best for him. If anyone would let me know if this could possibly be a viable option for him, please let me know!
