Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

That’s great Holly! I wish I had done that with Manni’s journey. I was so preoccupied with worrying and no sleep that it never crossed my mind.

That will be such a fantastic reference for all kitty amputees!! heartheart

Sally, Thank you❣️😻

Tina, I was preoccupied and worried and sleep deprived too😉 I always had my phone with me, I was taking pictures and videos only when I knew it was safe to do. We were fortunate enough to find Tripawds before Purrkins amp, wanted to share what I could. My parents are out of state & were able to see Purrkins recovering thru video and pictures.

so I found that I do have videos from those first months after all and put them together to show how Manni came from hesitant hopping to the 3/4 waltz tact he has now. It’s a little long but you can find it here:
