Anyone have a tripod kitty?
My lovely little cat, Stubby (a manx) got into some trouble the night before the hurricane, and came home with a severe limp. Took him to the vet, spiral fracture, tibia and fibula. They recommended sending him for surgery, but the place they recommended was over an hour away, and right in the eye of the hurricane. So I opted to have it cast, and we hoped it might heal. Well, after a week, he wasn't attempting to walk on it, because they had to straighten in to stabilize it. So we decided to amputate (the surgery option would have run me in the 3k catagory or more, with weeks of recovery)
So, today my Stubby butt became a Stumpy leg. He is home now, and resting somewhat quietly. Rolling around a little, crying sometimes, but otherwise, I think he's still a bit groggy.
Just looking for some encouragement. I feel awful we had to amputate, but I have been assured he will be good as new.
