Awww well clearly being a pawesome Tripawd Mom is hereditary in your family Cassie! We are thrilled to have a multi-generational Tripawd family join us. Thanks for sending her over here and thank you for taking such great care of Andi.
Thank you Cassie and Angel Domino for giving an in depth look at little Andi’s background.
Andi is one week post amputation today!! She has really felt a lot better yesterday and today, more like herself, her little personality is shining bright again. She took her last pain med dose this morning but doesn’t seem to need it tonight at all.
Andi’s favorite toy is DaBird. I let her have a few minutes play time with it tonight, no jumping though. She had a blast, so good to see her want to play again. Hopefully she will continue to improve everyday.
It is amazing to me how well the other cats were around her post surgery, like they knew to be gentle and not play and chase rough with her. Today is the first day that her best buddy(Crowley) and her really played together.

Fascinating backstory on how andi came into your lives. Similarities with how Domino came into your lives….crazy!!!
So happy to hear how well A finish doing. I know it brings you so much joy to see her start to play again…..and it gets better and better!!!
Pictures….we. must have pictures! And Casssie needs to post pics of the puppers😎
Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!
Andi is almost 2 weeks post amputation now. She goes to get her stitches out tomorrow and get checked out. Hopefully they will say everything is good. She’s very active again, almost crazy active. There is no wondering how she injured her leg, she is one of the most curious cats we’ve ever had, always getting into something or doing something that makes us say, hmmmm.
I’m still trying to figure out the picture and blog thing, with Christmas going on it’s been hard to find time to sit and figure it out but should have time soon.
