Greetings! We brought two Bengal kittens into our household 2.5 weeks ago. Unfortunately, I do believe that the breeder allowed us to collect them a bit too early: Goliath was 7.5 weeks old, and Cleopatra was 6.5 weeks old.
I noticed immediately that Cleopatra had a difficult time walking on her two hind legs, and often wobbled.
A veterinarian gave both kittens a clean bill of health the following day, and told me that Cleopatra showed no signs of neurological damage; she seemed to think that Cleopatra would grow out of her unsteadiness.
Now, almost three weeks later, we are still very concerned about Cleopatra. Although her hind legs seem slightly steadier, her head often shakes from side to side (not unlike someone who has Parkinson's disease.)
We will see the vet again in a couple weeks, but if anyone has knowledge or experience with this kind of situation, please let me know.
