This past week I’d found some wet spots on the floor and Missy has been exceptionally affectionate and vocal so off to the vet we went.

So antibiotics again. He said with surgery only a month ago it’s not uncommon so hoping this won’t be an ongoing thing.

Other than that she’s doing great! Since the kidney stone surgery she’s eating better, has gained weight, her fur is sleeker than silk!

Missy is doing well

Kidney stone surgery went well.  Surgery was Monday and she got to come home Tuesday evening.

She was given Hills CD to eat, which, if anyone has ANY ideas on how to feed one out of five cats a totally separate food, I’d highly appreciate any hints/tips, etc  LOL

Sadly, this surgery has been harder on her than the amputation.  She had no feeling due to the femoral never being shredded for that, but she sure does have feeling in the kidney area.  But she is eating, pooing, peeing, etc, just lots of lounging and needing extra lovin’s.


Poor Missy Hiss

Took Missy to the Vet today.  She’s been doing fantastic!  Bebopping around the house.  But yesterday, she pottied on the kitchen rug, so today we went to the vet.  I knew there was trouble when they pulled in the ultrasound machine.

Sadly, she has kidney stones, so today, she’s having surgery to remove them.  Good size ones so they’ve been there a good amount of time.

Fingers crossed!

Missy and Lovey.


Missy is doing fantastic

Missy is doing great. She has adjusted so well and it seems as if she’s always been a tripawd.

There are a few limitations. She cant walk narrow ledges quite as easily and jumping distances are out.  She can jump up pretty well but not very confident at going across distances.

But boy can she run! Graceful, fast and smooth. Walking she has a definite hop, but running?, not a sign just zips around at top speed, careening around and sliding around

The low sided litter box is being put up. She has no problems with the regular and all my cats decided they preferred it, so there is a mound of litter on the floor in front of it at all times.

She is just doing fantastic!


Life goes on

Missy is still doing well. She has totally adjusted to life on 3 legs. Her only limitation is jumping. Which may actually be a good thing as she’s turned out to be quite the hissy girl and tends to try to intimidate the other cats. They get tired of her and head to areas she can’t get to lol. She is very loving and she and the dog are buddies but she seems to simply tolerate the other cats. No fighting going on, just lots of hissing and growling.
