We are post-op day 14 and Tag seems almost like the little guy I once knew! I’m still keeping a close eye on him so that he doesn’t do things he shouldn’t and I can tell he is ready to be fully healed. He keeps trying to outrun me! He’s always been a runner, even before the amputation and he’s surprisingly fast for a three-legged cat!
He doesn’t appear to be in any pain that I can tell. I read a post about the ear and grimace for determining pain in cats, and he has zero signs of pain today. I know cats are great at hiding it, but this guy seems to be back to doing what he wants, at least when I let him. I still keep him separated from Comet at night and when we aren’t home. Comet has always been a little rough with him and she is dying to get near him. So far there haven’t been any scuffles, but I know it’s coming at some point.
