Yay so fun!
My question:
I know you studied and work with dogs. My kitty Jill is two years post amputation for osteosarcoma (rear leg). Have you ever noticed a difference in the gates of kitties? She does seem to tilt when she runs is there anything particular I should look for? Also she still needs a good boost to jump up on the bed but that may just be because I've spoiled her :)

Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013.

Oh sorry one more thing. I'm also curious if they see a lot of osa kitty cases at CSU

It was very informative and worth listening to. Although the research was focused on dogs I recognized a similarity with my cat Mona who is front left leg amputee - she brings her left rear leg further forward than the right rear leg so she is fully in a tripod position.

As to a previous question Jerry asked about cats slipping on hardwood floors. My cats generally don't have a problem except when taking a corner very quickly then all legs are flying. However, I have noticed that Mona's rear left foot seems to slide forward on the hardwood, I'm not sure if that's how she chooses to walk/hop or if it's from the floor. When she runs there is no sliding and no visible hopping.

Kerren that was so nice of you to listen, thanks! We try to cover every topic from a feline angle as much as possible, and always look for more topics for kitties and doggies alike.

Thanks for sharing the observations about Mona's gait. I wonder if other front leg Tripawds do that on slippery floors? I don't recall Jerry, also a front left amp, sliding like that.
