Hi everyone! It’s been about 6 weeks since my rescue kitten General Tso had his front limb amputated. I was told his recovery would amaze me – that has turned out to be completely true! He is such a joy, and so playful that I keep forgetting he only has three legs.
I made a video of his rescue and recovery story. It’s one thing to write about it, it’s another to see him hopping around, playing, and showing the world what a tripawd kitten can do!
I hope this video will inspire other kitten owners, and calm any fears about life after amputation. Enjoy!

Awwwww what a sweet story! You told it so well, and really captured the essence of the General. It’s amazing, he was so hurt, and had soo many stitches and injuries, yet his pawsonality still sparkled, you could see it even while he waited for amputation. This really shows how resilient he and other cats and dogs are in a situation like this.
Thank you for sharing and giving us a peek at his recovery. We’ve added it to our Tripawds Cats Videos playlist on YouTube!
