Ditto all of the above, tri-fuzz is an inspiration in a big way! His antics and updates make me smile everytime. 😁
When all that lovely “fuzz” grows back no one will ever know the difference. Fuzz obviously doesnt think theres one! I can just picture him zooming around!
Thank you both for the smile ❤

My sweet soulmate Roane was diagnosed with osteo in June of 2019. Had a rear leg amp on July 2nd & crossed the rainbow bridge to be with her sister Gypsy on the first day of Autumn Sept 23 2019.

Fuzz is adorable. I enjoyed reading this thread – my cat was 14 when he was diagnosed with chondrosarcoma and needed front leg and scapula removed. His recovery included a few hurdles, but before long he was running up and down stairs and jumping up on the fridge in really no time at all. Losing the leg did not hinder him in any way. I am so glad to see you are experiencing something similar. Go Fuzz 🙂

3 Week and 2 Day Update: Fuzz is literally back to himself months before this stupid cancer diagnosis and ultimate amputation. These were from this morning.. jumping up and attempting to walk the banister… There is literally no stopping him in his recovery. He has been so amazing and has rebounded to himself in such a very short time. He runs, plays, jumps, greets you at the door, has a never ending appetite, and typically acts like a dog- just like he was before! Here are some new photos from this morning, he was checking out the plant I just hung up on the hook, from above of course..

Wow! He looks great I have a quad that likes to walk on the banister occasionally and even with 4 I have heart failure, lol. Fuzz is loving life again, and you are right… his recovery has been amazingly speedy. I am so happy for you!
Hard really to totally remember Huck’s “time” when he was fully recovered because he was feral, so he had no “everyday” life to compare to as he roamed the house and learned stairs and such.
Those pictures are gorgeous!

Looking good!!! Hey did you send you send your calendar pic? We need more tri kitties! These would make a great pic!!
I must have overlooked this calendar thing… how and where do I submit photos of Tri-Fuzz for consideration? I will snoop around on the site and see if I can figure it out…

Fuzz really had had a spectacular recovery! I think being so loved and receiving such good csre was a main ingredient for success!
These pictures are so darn cute! Yes, Fuzz must be in the calendar!!!

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!
We tried a submission for calendar but sadly I don’t think pictures are big enough resolution wise and since they from my phone and I am not a computer genius there does not appear to be a way to make them bigger or suitable.. Fuzz and I thank you for calendar consideration… he will be a star in my eyes regardless!
