YAAAAY for stitch removal!  BOOOO for Skippy still trying to dig at incision.   It still may be a little tiny bit scabby  where the sutures were and that may be why she wants to scratch at it.

I hadn't  really seen the suit vefore....looks like a great solution

Oh Skippy! I wish you didn't have to be so eager to mess with the incision, silly kitty!

It's awesome you are suture-free now. YAY!

Oh about the onesie, yeah, it's there, and it's really useful for other situations that may happen in the future, like allergies, etc.

As May comes to a close (and closure is good), Skippy has successfully healed from her left hind leg amputation!

While she has limited jumping capabilities, the couches and chairs are manageable.  Big thanks for your support during this stressful event and I wish everyone a wonderful summer 2024 and beyond!!!

Always wonderful to get good updates like this! You've done such a good job of giving Skippy the care needed to navigate through recovery. Miss Kitty Skippy has done a very good job of behaving herself (after messing with her stitches anyway😜) and adapting so well.

Keep on thriving!
