Hoppy Tripawd Tuesday! It’s time to salute our three-legged feline furballs! Today we’re giving 3-paws up to Mona (who just celebrated her 1 year ampuversary!) and her mom Kerren.
Since joining us one year ago after Mona lost a leg to with Vaccine Associated Fibrosarcoma, this dynamic duo has offered such great wisdom for both Tripawd cats and dogs, such as
Make the decision, live with it and don’t look back.
One Year Later – What I’ve Learned
Mona has bypassed the statistics of surviving vaccine associated fibrosarcoma (66 days for tumour removal only or 325 days with amputation). So I am celebrating that Mona continues to enjoy life and is very happy hopping around, doing cheek plants, and eating dental kibbles in bed.
– Mona’s ampuversary celebration
I ran into my vet yesterday and he’s not surprised that Mona is doing so well. He said that cats are at the top of the animal kingdom and they know how to let you know what they need and when. Your new kitty will let you know what she needs. If she needs a break going up the steps then she’ll take it. Also she will grow stronger over time. The litter will be no problem since they figure out what works for them.

Not too long ago we had zero information about three-legged cats and their journeys as a Tripawd. Thanks to pawesome folks like Kerren and TriCat Mona, we’re learning so much and helping even more animals than ever before. Thank you both, and a special shout-out to all our other TriKitty members!

5 thoughts on “Tripawd Tuesday: Wise Words from TriKitty Mona”
Thanks for featuring Mona! At times I start take her tri-leggedness for granted but when I stop to think about it she has taught me so much. I’ve learned so much from the other pet parents, Jerry’s gang and the resources. This cancer thing is not straight forward and it seems there are no easy answers except to love and care for your pet to the best of your abilities.
Jacqueline, I told Mona you said she’s beautiful. She looked at me with her round eyes and then ran to her brush. So I’d better go brush her and see what I find in that fur of hers. Yesterday I found a slug.
Sally, thanks for the kind, enthusiastic words. You are always so encouraging and lots of fun. My cats always make me laugh every day and I’m sure you get big laughs from your Myrtle and Huckleberry. I bet they are laughing too, mostly at the drive-through.
Kerren and Trikitty Mona
Sorry Sally , I called Franklin by the wrong name, Huckleberry. I can’t remember the name you settled on.
Love your pups!
Way to go Mona. You are so beautiful❤
