Default cat handicapped most life now stopped walking completely

here is his story:

got him around 1 year old
fell off table around 1.5, bad fall, vet found nothing at time, he could not
stand up or walk for week following that fall, then by some miracle, no
pills no notrhing began to walk.. though limping, and seemed lacking
sensation on one side of his body.. but he walked well, pee, poo, appetite,
playing jumping.. everything a normal cat would do.. so since his fall at
1.5yo, and for following 4 or so years, all seemed okay.. until this morning
when we found him lying on bed unable to get up and with his front seeming
completely dead and paralyzed.. the back a bit better but not too good
either.. we're not sure if there is pain.. vet took xray.. found nothing
specific.. gave kortezeon shot+pills for a week.. the cat just kinda lies
still.. reacts to movement okay.. still good appetite.. did poo.. pee.. of
course with help..

we wanted to get your opinion on this..
or any good doctor in montreal area for him? or whatever else you think
could help.


thanks!

Seems neurological to me. I'll repost this to the other cat newsgroups.

thanks!

we saw a 2nd vet 3 days ago and he said some sort of a stroke that went
upward toward front paws/head rather than the more common back part of body.

he said it's rather lengthy and expensive to confirm a stroke. and he said
without any way to fix things IF indeed found a stroke after.

please let me know if you know anything else.

please remove spam if emailing me

thanks!
