Here, kitty kitty...
Well, I was flipping through channels tonight, and "Ripley's Believe it or Not" had a segment on a cat who's back two legs were paralyzed. The owners built it a wheeled harness. Seems normal, effective, and relatively cheap. You even see things such as this advertised in magazines such as Cat Fancy.
A guy on BattleBots two weeks ago, when the crazy route. His cat suffered paralysis of the hind legs also, but he built it a robotic box. Loud, and noisy, it even took the cat a while to figure out how to operate it. All you could see was the head. Talk about ruining the quality of life for the cat (no excercise), and the enjoyment you would get out of owning it for a pet.
Now, if something like that ever happened to my cat, I know which I'd chose.
