Tia the Tripod Cat

Apr 28

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!


Tia gets more and more agile as the months go by.   She did gain some weight after the surgery, probably due to less activity, so we are trying to exercise her more.    She can get up onto counters and jump up the cat tree or onto her favorite chairs.   Overall, its been going really well.  We noticed her coat is very soft and smooth now, where before the surgery it was a bit rough.   I suspect the tumor was affecting her system more than we knew.


She is still trying to scratch her ears with the non-existent leg, which is funny and sad at the same time.   I sometimes help her out with a good scritch when I see her doing it.  🙂

    I am so glad to see things are great with Tia!
    If she gained weight I can’t tell! She looks perfect!
    But yes they are less active after the amp we had to cut Purrkins food back.
    Thanks for the update!

    She’s looks wonderful!! It’s interesting that her coat is softer now. Mona had dandruff before the surgery and it cleared up and she also had shiny, ultra soft fur after the amputation.
    It looks like Tia has it all figured out and has trained you to be an ear scratcher. Smart kitty.
