Kitten has a twisted leg but drags them both?

a week ago my cat had kittens. one of my kittens was born with a deformed or "twisted" back leg but she drags both of her back legs. I know she can feel them both, does she just need time to learn how to use them? she also isn't opening her eyes yet but her sister is & she was born w/out a tail.

It may be a birth defect, or the kitten sustained an spinal injury during birth .. in any event you won't know what your options are until you take this baby to a vet to have it assessed. Please don't just let this kitty suffer .. Please get it some medical help.

they're birth defects, ask your vet about what you can do for the one with the leg issue. You should always have the vet come and look at animals that have just given birth. You need a checkup for both mother and baby.

Did the parents happen to be related? Take your kittens to the vet.
