  • I know this video is old but I am so grateful to have found this one and another one to help with one of our kittens! We took in a stray Queen and got her healthy and gave her a safe space indoors to have her babies. Luckily she was not far along in her pregnancy so she was able to adjust to being an indoor cat and adjust to us. She had her babies and they are all happy and healthy..or so we thought. One of the kitten's back legs started showing swimmers syndrome. Your video and updates have given us SO MUCH HOPE! We live in a very small town and our local vet was trying to convince us to put our Gray baby down...I refused and started researching other options. Thank you for sharing the journey with us and hopefully our little Gray Baby has a good, healthy, and happy recovery! (We still havent picked a name yet, so for now the name is simply Gray Baby :p)

  • So glad I found this video! My sister has a tiny kitten with swimmer syndrome and thanks to you, I’ll be able to try and tape her legs to make her walking better! As she’s just 4 weeks old, I hope she’ll get as good as Apple!! 🤞🏼

  • I literally came to the house now I was walking with a friend and a friend from the street loves cats and now he has kittens for the first time and they have grown a little already they are a little bigger and his stupid dad is literally a steppe kitten the most beautiful we walk and see passes normally the car passes we were a little further and we approach about twenty meters from his house and we see something lying on the road I'm kidding that it's not a cat and I thought it was mud since we are in the village from the tractor always stays and then my friend and I remember so it wasn't there when we passed a little while ago and we get closer I see a kitten lying on the road I put down a friend's dog and quickly give it to her and run to there I call her non-stop I get even closer that there is no salvation for her I started the poster so much I could barely stand on the floor so I squatted on the floor and a friend called me to get out of there because she knows I adore cats and that I will do something bad (in the sense that I will call someone og or something that will be because I adore animals) so the character did not turn around or see what he did and my friend adores cats so much I came to go to the house and say what happened but it was too late for me it's 9 o'clock in the evening, if it weren't for him, I'd just leave, I'm just very sorry, kitty and my friend, when he goes out in front of the house tomorrow and sees that horror, and I'm like, I'll tell him who did it, and that's his dad, ah, how angry there was nothing I could do

  • I have a 3 year old cat and I suspect she may have been born with swimmers syndrome. I just recently learned of this and have watched the great success with Apple. I am wondering if you think doing this with my rescue cat might help even now. My cat is also incontinent 😔. I love her as she is but would love to give her better quality of life. She gets around fine but we s unable to climb higher than a bed or sofa. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

  • I treated a foster with swimmers and found that the self-adhesive stretch sports wrap was easier to work with than medical tape. You can stick it, unstick, adjust the fit and restick many times until you get it just right. It doesn't stick to fur. It's also a bit stretchy so they aren't quite as restricted in their movement but get good joint alignment. I'm a human physical therapist and it was really fun and interesting to get to apply some of my skills to a kitten. The kitten did great and was walking normally within a week or two 😁

  • I got a kitten with flat chested kitten syndrome. I had to do therapy on her to encourage the chest to round and come away from the heart. Those plaintive cries from Apple reminded me so much of Cherish at that age doing therapy.

  • My kitten has the same condition but in better situation, it's like you apple after 7 days taping. @kitten Lady I would really appreciate your advice whether to tape her or encourage only practicing. I tried taping her before and I unfortunately hurt her fur and skin, so I wanna avoid that.

  • I rescued a pregnant neighborhood outdoor stray cat and she had her four sweet babies in a safe area of my home on April 10. One of the four kittens has swimmer legs and I'm ready and available to follow your plan. Question - any idea how mama cat will take to these leg wrappings? Do you know if she will try to remove the medical tape, or reject her baby? I want to keep her nursing mom for as long as possible but have kitten formula if needed. I realize her progress will dictate how long the wrappings need to take place - but about how long will I need to wrap her legs? Only about two weeks? Your video showed progress after 7 days - but did you continue the wraps and therapy past those seven days? Thanks so much!
