Hello everyone, I'm Sana, from Tunisia. I just red the article "7 Ways to Adapt Your Home for Your Disabled Cat" by Crystal Fogg. That gave me hope and I deeply hope I can find help here. So here's the story. (excuse my english)
About 2 years ago, we found him on the street (me and my sister), a little kitty, eyes severly affected. After treatment and eventually operation, he's been blind. At first it was sad news for us, I thought how could he live among all our other cats like that, but he prooved me wrong. He is the most affectionate cat I've ever seen, smart and energetic. But 3 days ago, every thing went worng again for him. We found him paralyzed in the posterior parts. the vet didn't ask for radio or something, didn't provide a lot of information either, he just said we better euthanize him. I think that's easy to say, and easy to do, but easy is not an option for us. I feel we're abondonning him if we do so. I don't know what to do ..
Yesterday was his first night in the house, we washed him, put baby diaper on (animal diapers are too expensive, I'm jobless and my sister is still student so financially it's not easy either), but in the morning the mess was all around the room. However, he eats normally, likes it when we play with him as usual.
Please help us with any information or physical help you can provide. Which medical options do we have? what should we do medically? Otherwise, how can we take care of him, cleaning, excersing , I don't know ..
