Question paralysis recovery- need advice

Hi,all. I have a male kitty who about a month ago got out and was probably clipped by a car. By what I can tell, his feeling and movement has all returned. The problem is he still is just dragging his legs like he has once he could get up and around. I have worked with them and I know he can move them in all directions and his tail has even started to move again. Does anyone here know how I can reactivate his nervous system to walking again. He can hold his weight on his feet but I need to position him and keep his feet straight. I have been trying to work with him with a harness set up to keep him up for awhile and get his legs used to doing what they once did. thanks to all who reply. His name is Ziggy.

Welcome Candrews and Ziggy !
I'm sorry to hear about Ziggy. He must be in great pain and suffers alot ! Did you take him to the vet ? If yes, what did the vet say about his current condition ? If the answer is no, then, you need to take him to the vet IMMEDIATELY, please, please, please !
No one on this website can tell exactly what is wrong with his nerve system or ligaments or joints or bones or ANYTHING caused by such an accident ! It's lucky enough that your kitty managed to survive !!

I'm so sorry for what happened to your cat. You need to take Ziggy to the vet asap. That's what you should do. Cats suffering from bone/joint problems and paralysis need to undergo therapy.

Hi, I have to agree with everyone it is important that Ziggy gets the right help, otherwise he may never get better.
