I don\'t know if this is the correct section to post this in but here goes :-/
After losing my beloved old tom cat a few weeks ago I started the search for a new addition to our family, on Friday I received a call from one of my customers to say they had collect 2, 9 week old female kittens on my behalf :-/ The problem is when I went to collect them I noticed they were very thin, had fleas & they seemed to have problems controlling their hindlegs..........I put this down to them being placed on a slippery floor surface.................but oh was I wrong, these poor little mites have hindlegs that look like frogs, they are VERY splayed ? To the point they stick out at 1/4 to 3 angles, I have booked them in for a vets check on Monday, but I\'m looking for more info on what could have caused these poor little souls to have this condition ?
In themselves they are eating & drinking well, using a litter tray, they are very playful & full of mischief, they can climb (she says as Kitty 1 runs up the arm of the chair & ponces on her head
They have no problems being handled & appear to like human companionship (confirmed by kitty 2 turning over for second nap on OH chest :-$) any ideas as to the cause of this condition ?
My immediate thought was being raised on a slippery surface ? or possibly a congenital defect ?
Your answers are very much appreciated
Thanks in advance
