Happy Triday everyone!
I Just wanted to make sure the world knows:
1) Tripawds are awesome,
2) Tripawds.com is awesome!
My tripawd story is boring compared to most that I’ve read on this site, but I’d like to share the fact that my 3-legger Jet is just as active, mobile and energetic as my 4-legged cat. So don’t be afraid to have a tripawd. The best perk is you get to join this awesome community 🙂
Thanks for all you do Jim and Rene (and WRD)!
Not boring!!! Never ever…. you totally rock 😻

Huckleberry adopted our yard. For a year we tried to befriend him but he was too afraid. He got hurt and disappeared for over a month. We were so afraid and worried that something awful happened and we'd never see him again. Huck came back 6 weeks later with his femur broken into 2 pieces. We trapped him and found out right rear leg had to be amputated. We chose life. We gave him his own room and slowly introduced him to the family. He is now a happy indoor kitty. We love him so much! Happy Tripawd Day Eveypawdy! Love, Huckleberry xo xo xo #TRIDAY2020
