How are you and Penny doing? Hope all is going ok.
All ok. Had lots going on with a foot injury and my little girls birthday.
Penny is doing ok. Ive noticed that she tends to walk a lot, although not always, with her back end a little lower rather than with her back in a straight line.
Her and tiger are spending a fair amount of time not getting on. From what I've seen, he's just playing the way they always have, but I don't think she can handle it as well. She ends up crying out and hissing a lot.
I'm guessing both of these are due to her being uncomfortable with her back leg, as they both started within the last couple of weeks. In the first month or so after the amputation this didn't happen, only since the back leg seems to be playing up
Well I can say that while walking Huckleberry is the same. His back end always is lower than it was. When he's running you'd never know he even had just three legs. He's still quick and pretty agile if he's doing something that requires speed.
He and Oscar have been having troubles also but I had stopped using the feliway thinking it was not necessary. Under normal circumstances I think that would be correct but the way Oscar acts had been off the wall. Very territorial, very jealous. He's even beating Andy up. I started using the feliway spray again and added a second diffuser and placed them where the cats frequent often. The difference in just a few days is amazing. I don't know if it will help you but it sure has calmed the crew down ❤️
I sure hope you're feeling better soon.

We have a plug in too. Always have one as penny struggles with stress and anxiety x
Awww.. that's tough stuff When she gives Tiger the stop signal is he listening? Hopefully he is and he is just going to have to learn when to leave her alone for now. I hope things get easier.
I don't know much about these things with cats, but is there some sort of soft brace that might add stability for her? I am just throwing it out there as an idea. It would be nice if they made something smaller scale and softer for a cat that would not hinder too much but might stop her leg from falling out. Might be worth asking her doc if you have not already?

Mostly he does, although sometimes he has to be told by us too. Sometimes he leaves her alone for a few minutes then starts again, but I'm fairly sure he doesn't mean to be nasty. They've always chased and played with each other without a problem until now.
I will look into it and speak to the vets next time too.
Added a couple of new pics to my blog but can't remember how to add them to here 😂
