All ampuversaries are incredible. But when it comes to an osteosarcoma cat, it’s an extra special celebration! Today’s Tripawd Tuesday feature honors Charlie’s big occasion. This 14-year old cat is still going strong!
Last year, Charlie’s mom Michelle sent us his Tripawd Tuesday story, Charlie, the Cat Beats Osteosarcoma!
We’re now 1 month post surgery and things are going really well. The vet said that we would be surprised at how quickly animals can adapt to life on 3 legs. He said that in most cases they’ve already been favouring the other 3 legs before the amputation.
The vet was right, my husband and I are amazed every day!
Charlie the Osteosarcoma Cat is Now 1 Year on 3
On Thursday, September 15, they are celebrating one year post amputation, and post diagnosis! Michelle writes:
This is a recent picture of Charlie. He will be “1 year on 3” on Sept 15th
Basically just want to say Happy 1 year to Charlie after his amputation due to osteosarcoma. Also that were glad we made the decision to go ahead with it. His favourite thing is to be outside in the yard.

A big huge 3-paws up to Charlie for showing the world that cats with osteosarcoma can go on to have happy, fulfilling lives as Tripawds! Thanks for sharing your big day with us.
