Our sweet Jo is home! Her x-rays showed no sign that the cancer had metastasized and her bloodwork was great, so the amputation was a go! The surgery went smoothly, and she even got up and tried to walk right after her anesthesia wore off! For being a half-blind, partially-toothless 14+ year old cat now having to operate on three limbs, she’s a true fighter. So much love and gratitude goes out to Dr. Smith, Dr. Murphy, the vet techs, and staff @centraltexascathospital who made this all possible and gave us so many awesome updates. We couldn’t be more thankful that our gal was in such competent and caring hands. Now to help her get through the recovery period and back to her old self! πŸ’— #mamajocat #update . . Thanks to all who have hired me, offered donations, sent Amazon gift cards, and sent well wishes and hope- THANK YOU! I’m still looking for some more side jobs, so if you have any locally or virtually, DM or email ❀️. . . . . . . . . . #austin #rescue #old #lady #tripod #cat #instacat #oldlady #catsofinstagram #catlady #catlover #catstagram #catsofinstagram #surgery #cancer #fibrosarcoma #amputee #amputation #threeleggedcat #atx #austintx #tuesday #gratitude #grateful #thankful

    @kittenkonnoisseur I have a 10 year old "barn cat" who had a very serious injury 2 years ago, we decided to amputate one of her back legs and she is doing great! She was so healthy and full of life that there was never a question about putting her down. She then became a "house cat", adjusted quickly to 3 legs, can run through the house and play w our other cat, climb the stairs, and she gets up onto the couch w a little set of stairs just for her! We don't ever question our decision to give our baby every chance to live the lifetime that God intended for her. Giving Jo the benefits of great vet care and every opportunity that good healthcare can provide her should never be questioned. πŸ’•

  • @faithamdahl 10:57 AM Oct 24, 2018

    Our family had a kitty that was mauled by the neighbor's huge dog and left for dead, like a rabbit at about 10 years old. She crawled through our huge back yard. Lost a leg, just like this one. She went on to live a full life and never acted as it it bothered her. She lived until 16. I'm so glad that you're kitty has that same fighting spirit. 😽

    My baby, Princess, was diagnosed with VAS November of 2016 and had her amputation December of 2016. She pasted away November 20th, 2017. I’m so thankful that we had that last year with her. I miss her everyday. Everyday is a gift

    I am so glad you noticed that something was wrong and got her to the vets before it metastasized! You have given her a real chance to fight and she obviously wants to fight! Hope she does well in her recovery πŸ˜πŸ˜»πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ™β£οΈβ€οΈ
