Is that a cigarette butt on the floor?!?
Cats have been known to play with and choke on those, even to eat cigarettes!
That isn't really safe.
He is a big handsome fella for sure.

Alexander is a beautiful cat.

Please tell us more about the history of his burned foot.
Your knowledge about his foot and amputation might help other members who are facing possible amputation for their kitties.

I am so glad that sweet Alexander is thriving.

hi ..........alex is georgeous. I am facing possible amputation with my cat. Please tell us the story of what happened. And also about his coping skills with only three feet. If he was born with three feet that would not be an option but if he lost his foot later on in life, your story might give me somel thoughts on my own cat situation.

Thanks

I look forward to hearing from you.

Alex was born with only three feet. He acquired his name from a song by Scarling. called Alexander the Burn Victim that says "I love you Alexander, we'll be together forever". And we will. He gets around fine, though. I have a friend whose cat is an amputee, and it's coped fine. After he healed, he's as fast as any four legged cat. Alex is Tonkinese, not quite Siamese, but close. Cigarette butts were impossible to keep off the floor at the time; we had three, and Alex was the only one who wasn't a kitten. We tried, but it was futile.

OH, ok.......Thanks for letting me know. Since Alex was born that way, he knows nothing else so I bet he is fast as lightning. And also thanks for the info on your friend's cat with three legs and how he copes. My cats appointment is Monday so I will know something then regarding possible amputation of JJ's rear leg.

I adopted a three legged cat, Trinity, shortly after her amputation, back left leg. She doesn't seem to mindd and has adapted well. She has a little trouble jumping onto high things, like the counter and such. But she doesn't mind being picked up to help her. She walks with a limp, or a hop really, but she runs like a pro. I think she is a better runner then walker. She loves to chase her tail and she does it on mher back cause she can't run in a cirle without falling over, but I think her missing leg makes it easier to catch her tail. The olny warning I saw on the internet was to watch her weight cause it puts extra stress on the other limbs. The funniest thing to watch is when she is "scratching" her chin or ear with her missing leg. The little stump twichted ans she makes this face like she can feel the scratching. I always ask her, "what are you scratching? An imaginary itch with you imaginary foot?"

It was wonderful of you to adopt a tripod kitty.

You might want to start a thread in the Health forum about the weight issue.
so you can keep us updated & get feedback.
