    And as I PM'd you - nerve recovery is slow. If you've ever had surgery and nerves were traumatized (not cut) it can take months to recover.

    Or, along the same line of thought, those "panties" you can get for breeding bitches? It seems like a toy breed size would fit a little kitty.

    The dog catalogues have diapers for incontinent dogs.

    Are there diapers small enough for incontinent cats?

    woops Coloredhorse, I was posting while you were posting, good idea. Those are small and she could put diapears or bounty paper towels in them.

    I was just thinking about that as an option, too!

    Aspen, the cat I mentioned above dragged both hinds for almost a month before he could walk (about 2 months before he could move them at all). It didn't seem to bother him much, and he was eating/drinking/using the litter box (we moved one into the room he was in, as well as his cat dishes).
    Stay me with coffee, comfort me with chocolate, for I am sick of love.

    Wow--this quickly became very popular, but it's not horse-related so we have to close it down with our best wishes to Carrot.

    The OP is welcome to provide us with an update later, which we'll post to the thread to give everyone a progress report.

    Thanks,
    Mod 1

    Default UPDATE!

    CARROT UPDATE from the OP:

    Just a quick update. It's been 8 days since Carrot was shot. Still no use of her hind legs, but she is with us! I have to express her bladder for her three times a day. But she is jetting around and climbing, you can't stop her! I've decided for now, if she's not done fighting neither am I. I will try with her. If anyone has heard the new song Just Stand Up, the chorus reminds me of Carrot.
    If the mind keeps thinking you’ve had enough, But the heart keeps telling you don’t give up
    Who are we to be..questioning, wondering what is what
    Don’t give up…THROUGH IT ALL, JUST STAND UP!

    If anyone wants updates, please email me at maria@frostyoaks.com I can send you pictures then too! Maria
