Here again is our loving and adorable foster kitten, Speedo. In this video, you can see him walking through his “Alley,” which is merely two fish tanks aligned next to the wall. This creates an alley that is narrow enough to prevent Speedo’s hind legs from splaying outward, thus forcing him to use and strengthen the muscles he needs in order to be able to stand upright.
During the first week of therapy using Speedo’s Alley, he would continue to splay his hind legs up and outward, even with tape on. However, as you can see in the second clip which shows his legs from behind, he has greatly improved and now has the ability to remain upright and really exercise those muscles during his therapy sessions 🙂
