Her butt twitches and she drags her butt

She drags her butt, and she seems to have a twitch in her backside?

I rescued this stray kitty and she seems to drag her butt sometimes (just a bit though) and her backside twitches a lot. Her back two pays stand up high then go back down like she is bouncing up and down. When i rescued her she had flees but i gave her two baths and it seems to be much better. At first the kitty ate a lot of food but now she eats and then sometime during the day she will throw up. I'm trying to find a home for her but i feel like no one will want her if she has these abnormal twitches. What should i do?

I assume you are also treating the cat with a monthly flea treatment also. If not then it could be either a continued flea infestation or like my cat, a allergic reaction from flea bites.
Your best bet is to take them to the vet and have the skin looked at, my cat had to have a anti histamine injection to help with the itching.
The vet will also be able to check to see if anything else mighgt be wrong at the beck end which may be causing the butt dragging, like, worms, swollen glands etc.

best wishes Kate
