Today on Tripawd Tuesday, Little Man the Tripawd cat has a scoop he wants to share with you, but it’s not what you think it is:
Little Man is ten years old. He lost his leg to a Vaccine Associated Sarcoma (VAS) tumor found on his rear leg, one year and ten months ago and he’s doing wonderfully! In his blog he tells us:
Dad was worried that I wouldn’t be happy with 3 legs. He thought I wouldn’t be able to live like a normal cat and that I’d be miserable. “What kind of life would that be?”, he asked my mom. His first suggestion was to just take care of me as long as they could and keep me comfortable. Mom did some research and showed dad videos of other animals living with 3 legs. He was still very uncertain. He told my mom that it was up to her. She called the vet and scheduled my surgery.
One year and ten months later, Little Man is thriving and doing great as a Tripawd. Lately he’s been offering some insight on what it’s like to be a Tripawd kitty, by answering burning questions posed by the Tripawds Nation:
Question: Has being a Tripawd affected your ability to jump off of high places like countertops? Do you still land as graceful as a four-legged cat, or even better?
Question: What’s your secret to beating cancer? If you could give advice to kitties about to become Tripawds, what would it be?
Question: We want to know what changes you have ‘inspired in the way local animals are treated.’
