Tia the Tripod Cat

Aug 19



Its been two weeks and 1 day since Tia’s surgery!   She is doing amazingly well.    As far as accommodations go, we still have some stairs up to a higher favored perch and a low-sided litter box.    But she is now able to jump up on a lower window perch as well as the bed easily.    I have modified the “normal” litterbox with a step stool (its high sided because we have a standing pee’er cat) so we will try to see if she will use that this weekend.   She has not ventured up on any kitchen counters as of yet, but I expect she will eventually be able to make those jumps as well (although I was enjoying not having to shoo her off of counters).

Here is a video of her playing with a fishing toy – she hardly seems slowed down by her missing leg.  You can really see her tail working on that balance, though!


And here is her incision as of today:
