It’s been nearly nine months since Fang’s amputation, and we’ve come to another big crossroads in our lives as pawrent and fur-baby. As you might know from previous entries, Fang is an outdoor kitty.

June 29th, 2013 · 5 Comments · Fang's Story

Fangers was rolling around playing on his scratcher yesterday as he often does – even though its 106 degrees and far too hot to play, as far as I’m concerned. Anyhow, I thought I might take a little video of him, since it’s been so long since his hop video! 😛 (Lets see if I […]

Hey everybody! It’s been more than 7 months since Fang’s amputation and really, there’s just nothing new to report. Which is great, of course! 😉 He’s still doing wonderfully – He runs, plays, catches rodents, and chases Mamma-Kitty around the fields. Because it’s summer, He pretty much doesn’t spend a second more than he has […]

I’d like to impart a few things I’ve learned from watching him these past months. Firstly, cats on […]

Alright, it took me a long time to find these, and for that I apologize. I hope that they are still useful to those of you that asked! Here are the bills for the whole amputation process. There are three. The first was the exam where they checked out Fang’s lump, and took an X-Ray […]

Fang’s Two Months on Three Legs

January 11th, 2013 · 7 Comments · Fang's Story

Well, its Fang’s two month mark as a cat with three legs, and he’s doing as well as ever! He continues to get stronger and stronger in his remaining front leg, go outside, hunt, play and generally just be himself. I couldn’t be prouder!

Alright, I’m a little late writing Fang’s one month update – I’ve been a busy girl! So, really this is a one month and 5 days update! Fang the three-legger is still doing wonderfully. The weather has been a little rainy, so he’s been inside more often and is displeased about it, as usual. However, […]

I wanted to show Fang’s “hop” at 21 days after amputation surgery. He gets around very well, and as you can see, still stops to scratch/stretch on various wooden objects like he always did. Please excuse my messy porch – been cleaning out the house. 🙂

We are now at three weeks after Fang’s leg amputation, and he is one happy three legged cat! As I mentioned in my last post, I didn’t and don’t really feel like there’s too much more recovering to do. Fang spends a lot of time outside in all of his regular places, and gets around […]
