This is wonderful news! Thank you for sharing Corbin and his story with us.
Aren’t the new cuddles the best?!
Head Scritches and Sandpaper kisses,
Gina, Nick and Rusty
Rusty "The Bunnyman" adopted us in 2014. Aug/Sept 2017, back left leg amputated (HSA cancer). He remained cancer free over 900 days. Cancer returned as of emergency visit on day 931. 15 days later, he gained his wings 04/18/2020 due to congestive heart failure. He will always watch over his fellow tripawds and their hoomins with Head Scritches and Sand Paper Kisses.

Excellent news Corbin is doing well !! You did great advocating for Corbin that is what we have to do!
How long did you end up on the Gabapentin for?
You Lucky kitty Corbin you have your very own masseuse!
No more attacks?
Purrkins had a very late onset of phantom limb a year and a half post op. We go for acupuncture and chiro as needed and have since his surgery we got the farabloc blanket and this has resolved the episodes from happening between his acupuncture. We did not have to increase our sessions the blanket was our answer.
Corbin knows his human helped him!
I believe we all have a more profound bond with our animals after the amp! I did not think I could love Purrkins more than I already did but yep I do!
Thanks for the great update! Chin & ear scratches to Corbin, please!
Holly & Purrkins❤️

I just wanted to say thank you for posting about this! Another foster from the shelter I volunteer at was having a very similar problem with her three legged foster kitty, and this topic was really helpful for figuring out what was going on. 🙂
