I have to keep HRH isolated from the other cats so that we can monitor her bathroom habits and eating more closely, so we have her in a large dog cage. It's large enough to give her room to move around but small enough for her not to be too far from her essentials. As soon as I got home yesterday, I opened the cage door, but she showed no interest in wanting to get out. I finally got her out of the cage to see if she'd walk, which she did but he still can't put full weight on her back legs. The steroids have not had enough time to bring down the swelling along her spine, but she was able to move more yesterday, though it obviously caused her a great deal of pain. When she walked about three feet and them sat down and began to cry, I went and picked her up and just cuddled with her and stroked her. She began to purr and seemed content. When I got ready for bed, I put her back in the cage where I hope she slept peacefully through the night. The night before I got up several times to check on her.
