Hi Sweet Cotton and Mum,
Just reading through this now, and so glad Cotton's painful leg is gone! And he's already walking around, that's amazing! Would to see a photo.
I think Holly mentioned my post earlier with the 12 year old cat Tom - surgery was about a month ago, and I can honestly say it's the best thing we could have done for him. You also said Cotton is a larger cat with big bone structure - Tom is fairly large guy as well, I personally felt that his broad shoulders have helped him be more stable (he had his front left leg amputated). He also lost a fair amount of weight within the first week of surgery, so I guess it helps to have some to lose?
I hope recovery is going well sounds like there are no hiccups yet. I guess all kitties deal with it differently, I had a relatively easy time with Tom, but you have access to a wealth of expertise on this forum in case of any hiccups!
All the best to you both
-Paka Tom and Mum
Thanks to everyone for the support. I’ve got it on my list to get a photo of Cotton up soon. 🙂
We got some encouraging news today - the results of his bone biopsy. While it is osteosarcoma, it doesn’t appear to have spread into his blood vessels so they said there is only a 20% chance it spread to any other parts of his body. They didn’t see any signs of it in the X-ray either. So that means we very well may have cured him!! They said if we don’t see any issues after 6 months then we can consider him cured. Cotton is back to himself, happy as can be. And he gets his stitches out today!
Big thanks to those that posted the T-shirt tips and litter box tips. 🙂 came in handy!
and to Paka Tom and his mum, love to hear that another senior kitty is doing so great! Yay!
