Tripawd Kitty Bloggers Sharing Their Feline Amputation Tales

Jerry first wrote about Nemo the three legged cat in November, 2007.

We first reviewed “Henry’s World: A Three Legged Cat’s View of Human Absurdity” here in the Tripawds News blog back in 2009.

Then in 2011 we reminded readers that Tripawds is not just for cancer dogs.

In 2013, we announced a wide selection of fun three legged cat designs now available on t-shirts and gifts in the Tripawds Gift Shop.

More recently, we published a guest article in the Tripawds Nutrition blog discussing The Basics of Cat Nutrition.

Now, as the Tripawds community continues to grow, we have an increasing number of tri-kitty bloggers! Please visit their blogs below or leave a comment if we left anypawdy out!

  1. Here is our tripawd kitty’s story…,https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9JQZd_M39ys

  2. I was reading someones forum and hit the link on kitty bloggers. I didn’t see Purrkins. Can we add him here? I did the blog hoping he would help other kitties some day.
    http://purrkins.tripawds.com

  3. I am glad to hear so many amazing stories! Here is the start of Clawde Meownet’s story:
    Last week and outside stray that I had become attached to, showed up at my back door dragging his left front leg. I took him to the Sunday emergency room at my vets office. They said he had been shot and I could pay to amputate or euthanize. I could never euthanize.
    I paid for the amputation, for him to neutered, and for all his shots and aftercare.
    Unfortunately, I could not keep him because of a 14 yr old territorial rescue cat I have…and allergies.
    I found a wonderful home for him and they have kept me informed of his progress and how he is becoming part of their family as he realizes they care for him as much as I do.
    Thank you a, for all these inspirational accounts!

    • Awww thank YOU Diana, what a great human you are! Thanks for sharing Clawde’s story, I hope his people come back to share his journey with us. Best wishes to you and your own kitty!

  4. I am new to the tripawd world. My almost 11 year old cat, Dexter has VAS . He had 2 surgeries to remove the sarcoma from his rear left leg. The last was 12/29/2015. My vet told me it was VAS stage 3. She said it would be a good idea to see an oncologist.
    The oncologist scheduled radiation therapy (20 session 5/wk). But 10 days later when we were going to start therapy, the oncologist found 2 nodules. After a consult with a surgeon, it was determined that the only option other than palliative would be amputation.
    After many tears, I realized he just wasn’t ready to go. He had his left rear leg and 40% of his pelvis removed. He was in the hospital for 3.5 days as he wasn’t eating and was aenemic. The hospital sent hi ho e to see if he would eat. I was given bupenorphine for pain, clavamox for antibiotic and onsier.
    He still wasn’t eating and had already lost almost 2 lbs! I was really feeling so much guilt just thinking of how much pain and agony he was in. The next day (Fri 2/11), I brought him back for another blood test. The oncologist prescribed an appetite stimulant.
    For these past 6 days he’s has been eating, playing and hopping! I can’t believe how well he is doing
    I wanted to thank people in this forum. As I was making that decision to amputate I reAd all of the blogs. These gave me hope

    • Welcome and thank you for the feedback!

      Feel free to start your own blog for Dexter or post in the forums for even more tips and support from members.

  5. Miss Kitty’s surgery is scheduled for Friday [05/30/14]. As you all know, it’s been a tough journey. Kitty had a VAS removed four years ago, followed by chemo. Then a couple of weeks ago, I discovered a growth on her left hip, the same area as before. Her vet aspirated it. It was cancer and we were referred to Avets. She went in for surgery and was anesthetized for radiology, CT scan and surgery. Her lungs are clear but the scan revealed a mass inside the elbow of her left hind leg.

    The surgery was postponed so we could talk about what to do. The first thing the vet mentioned was amputation. I was horrified and saw no way that I could do that. Really struggled with it and came to the decision to have minimal surgery followed by chemo. It didn’t take long for me to become uneasy about that. Then, last evening, a friend and I searched the Internet to learn more feline fibrosarcoma. [It was this friend who found Tripawds.] Thinking and praying about what I was reading brought me to the conclusion that minimal surgery followed by chemo was about as good as doing nothing. I’d be putting Kitty through the trauma of surgery and chemo without the best possible chance of survival. And so it comes down to amputation. I haven’t told the surgeon yet [that will come tomorrow] and I’m still horrified but I do believe it’s best…

  6. Woohoo! Thanks for spreading the word that three legged cats can and do get a TON of resources and support here at Tripawds! 😀 😀

  7. THANK YOU for writing this piece 🙂 It warms my heart to see all these new tri kitty bloggers!!! And we owe such a big thanks to our leader FANG!
    If it were not for Fang, I may not have stuck around this place and boy, who knows where I woulda wound up 😉

    • Fang, if it weren’t for you, I probably wouldn’t have found this place. I was totally uncertain about the whole amputation thing. I was totally worried about quality of life, and then I ran into your blog.

      Rory is less than a week since the amputation, and so I’m still learning and in some moments, still wondering. But I have to thank you for making my decision a bit more clear.
