YAAAAAAAAAAAAY FOR SCOUT 😁😁😁

SOOOOOO RELIEVED  TO HEAR THIS!!!

SCOUT LOOKS SO DARN ADORABLE AND ACTUALLY QUITE COMFY.  I’M SURE THE DRUGS HELP TOO!

Keep is posted and let us know how things are going.   Drinking  and peeing are important .  Pooping and eating may be a little off for a few days.

Lots of hugs

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!

Wishing you all the very best

Thanks for checking in.  I’m happy to report everything is going even better than I expected.  Scout is just beginning day 6 of tripawd living and is eating well, drinking, and had her first poop yesterday.  So funny how excited I was about that.  The tent is turning out to be a good choice for us and so much better than the alternatives available in our home.  The good news/bad news is that as she becomes more herself she is less satisfied with confinement but no real trouble keeping her still.  I hope everyone is having a beautiful day.

Love, Liz and Scout

Fantastic update on Scout yep it is excellent news, we celebrate poop here!poopicon_pngclap

Scout is still a kitty we can only keep limited movement as best we can. Purrkins was banging on the door to get out of his recovery room, and I was in there with him, he was the same way. That is when I allowed him to do more. I let him try his steps and have his window seat back. All supervised of course.

That is Scout being herself her sparkle is coming back you have to love it!

Keep up the great work! I am sure more people will now use the tent for recovery so glad it worked for you!

Love seeing Scout she is a sweety!
Hugs,
Holly & Purrkinsheart

Hi Liz,

I love hearing that Scout is feeling more and more Kitty everyday! That is excellent news! And such an excellent picture! 

The good thing is is if she becomes a cat burglar and breaks out of her tent, there is only so far to go in an apartment. Maybe you could put yourself in her paws and see if there is anywhere that she could ‘escape’ to, in case you need to get to her, for her medications and such. Im thinking like places under the bed or behind a really heavy dresser or the Boiler room? I know for my catssss, the first place that they go to to hide, is under the bed and for me to get to them, it would be a most difficult chore, if not an impossible game for them to win!

I really do love her accomadations! I also love to hear that she is recovering super well and has had her official first Poop without any issues! Well done Scout!!clap

Keep up the good work, both of you!
