Finally!! Tuchy can heal and live life in comfort. Your persistence paid off. It’s so unfortunate the vet didn’t do a proper amputations in the first place. 

Thank you for loving Tuchy.

I’m soooo happy to read this news! YESSSS!!

You are such a great guardian to Tuchy. What a lucky kitty to have you looking out for him. I hope the healing goes quickly and you can all get on with life. Great job!

Hi everyone! Sorry for late answering. Tuchy is very well and we are surprised how quickly and well he has healed. indeed, the first operation was wrong. I had not mentioned it but we no longer returned to the vet where they operated on it for the first time, we began to distrust that vet when we sought other opinions and agreed that it was not normal for them to leave the stump. Fortunately, his new vets have managed to get along very well, they’re professionals and animal lovers, Tuchy is popular in the hospital for being grumpy. He was already tired of so many visits to the vet, medications and pain in his stump. Now we are so happy to see him so cheerful, affectionate and playful, he adapted very quickly, he had no problems with his litter box, he hace protective bandage and is now more free to play and eat and drink water at the time he wants. Thank you very much to each of you for being so aware and for your words of encouragement. I will continue to report your improvement. hugs to all!

Tell Tuchy I would be grumpy too. icon_lol

I understand some vets do a partial amputation in case they want to get a prosthetic. Obviously the pros and cons of a prosthetic needs to be discussed first. They are quite expensive and not readily available in every community. It’s not something I would have considered for my cat and thankfully the vet did not present the possibility because I would not have been able to wrap my head around it.

I’m so happy Tuchy is doing so well.

Huge hugs to the both of you.

Awww what great news! It makes our hearts happy when an animal gets the care they need and feels good again. You are such a great parent to Tuchy! How wonderful your new vet is so terrific.

We would love to see photos. If you don’t know how adding images works, just Private Message me (see the little Envelope button across from my name) and I will post them for you. 

Thanks for taking time to share.

Hello everyone!
I am sorry I did not answer, I lost my computer and with these times it got complicated.

Tuchy is very well and very very healthy, he is very fearless and restless, I will send photos.

I send you hugs hoping everyone is fine!

Tuchy! You have come such a long way, I’m so happy to hear from you. Hard to believe it’s been six months since you were here last but wow you’ve really bounced back, this is so great to know. And the photos are priceless! The one with you and the wire coat hanger made me giggle: it’s almost like you are thinking about hanging onto it like a flying trapeeze circus kitty! 

Too cute my friend. Thank you for sharing and thinking of us. We love knowing that a member has made a full recovery. Keep in touch!
