Kender's Tripawd Journey

Day 1

August 1st, 2014 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

Today was our first day post amputation.  And I’m happy to say there isn’t a whole lot to report 😀 No news is good news, right?

When I checked on Kender this morning, her blanket was dry and there was pee in her little box.  Hooray!  No more accidents.

She wasn’t much interested in her dry food and only ate a few pieces.  I usually never buy wet food, but got her some as a special treat.  She scarfed some up when I took it to her this morning.  She wasn’t quite as interested this afternoon or tonight, but she did eat some.

She’s always happy to get pets whenever I go in to check on her.  She even enjoyed pets from the kiddos 😉  My oldest (almost 6) is concerned about her and wants to check on her 24/7.  I have to keep reminding her that the best thing for Kender right now is lots of rest, so we need to leave her alone most of the time.

I expanded her enclosure tonight also so that she has more room to try moving around in.  I plan to get rid of it in the next couple of days, but we’ll she how she’s doing when the time comes.  Her incision looks great to me!  The little pooch in her belly below her incision looks a little bigger to me today.  I know those fluid type pockets are normal after surgery, so I’m not concerned at this point.  Will be sure to keep an eye on it to be safe, though.

Nom nom nom! You can see her little pooch here, too.

Our other kitty, Dalamar, came in to see what’s going on. He’s pretty confused about this whole ordeal.

    So glad to hear that she’s eating and using the litter box! And even better that she’s welcoming affection!! Such wonderful news!

    Her incision has about the same amount of bruising that Steve’s had at the same time period after surgery. Just keep an eye on that fluid pooch to make sure that it starts getting smaller!

    Yay Kender and mom! You’re doing pawsome!

    YAY KENDER! Sounds like you’re doing great! Jill had that exact same pooch in her belly!!! It was like that literally for like three weeks I was concerned she gained weight just from having surgery but it did go down eventually! Keep us posted and keep up the great work!

    And I just saw her trying to walk! I’m sitting in the corner of her enclosure and leaned over to give her pets. Then sat up to give my back a break. Well she still wanted her pets! So she started trying to drag her way over with her front paws, then got up and climbed part way into my lap! Yay Kender!

    No news is GREAT news but we sure love seeing Kender and Dalamar so blog away! Great names by the way, how did you choose them? Did I miss that?

      They are both from the Dragonlance series of books haha

      Kender does not at all live up to her name now, but she did as a kitten. Curious, rambunctious, innocently mischievous…She’s been a lazy bum for years now, though!
