deva’s diagnosis

greetings fellow tripawds

It came as a big shock when the Vet told us that Deva had a tumour in her right leg. I thought the limping was because Deva had been hitting the front and back door repeatedly when the neighbour’s cat came a calling (every day…in fact he sleeps in our back yard..but that is another story!)

Bone cancer sounds scary and I admit I felt deva(stated)… the only option was to amputate the leg. So, after the lung scan came back clear, we decided to go ahead asap. The diagnosis came on 30 November, Deva’s 11th birthday.

The next few days consisted of me researching like crazy –  I read everything I could about cats and amputation. Then I stumbled on fangs blog which led me here to tripawds. I discovered there were a few other cat blogs, and I am so very happy to have found this wonderful community of pet lovers.

Preparing for surgery, the vet prescribed some pain meds. But nothing really prepares the 2 legged for the anxious wait…

    Deva – So happy you decided to start a blog about your three-legged journey, and welcome to the community! 😀 Deva is absolutely gorgeous – really, amazingly beautiful colors.

    I was wondering how you guys were doing after that comment on Fang’s blog! So glad you found us! Yes, the news is S-c-a-r-y when you find out that your family member needs to have major surgery, but I’m glad you both are staying strong!
