5 days until surgery :(

Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU! For all your support! I want to quickly say PLEASE feel free to add any advice in the form of comments or other wise EVEN if you think I may already know it! I would rather re-read helpful advice than never hear or even think of it!

Niko is doing alright, her paw bleeds every once in a while which is a little scary but she seriously doesn’t seem to notice! She’s eating normally, acting like she always does, does NOT seem to be in any pain. I want to compare it to when people have an annoying sore leg, like it hurts and you can’t walk on it because that doesn’t feel good but it’s more like an annoying hurt than a truly painful hurt? I really hope that made more sense than it seems. Any who she’s doing good. She does poop on the rug in the dining room every once in a while but she always seems to alert us as soon as she does it. As if she’s saying I’m sorry I don’t want you to be mad at me but it was just to hard to go to the liter box this time! We never scold her for this.

Back to her leg, I have a hope that the transition won’t be that hard because for the past two weeks she seems to have stopped using it and as adapted to life without it’s use. She does of course limp when she walks but I’ve noticed she’s developed a little hop when she’s walking. I did mention this to the vet and they said since she is acting normal and (after I looked at her foot and described it to them) it seems like it’s nothing that needs to be seriously addressed ( as in the amputation date needing to be moved up). Oddly enough when I got home from work I found her at the top of her current tree looking very pleased with herself!

I’m trying to designing a new cat tree for her that will have the same height she has on her first one (it’s maybe 4 feet off the ground?) ┬ábut without the crazy vertical leaps that her current one has. Of course she won’t be able to use it for a long time but I know it’ll make her feel great once I deem she can once again leap buildings in a single bound!

Well that’s really all to touch on for today! I’ll try and take some newer pictures of Niko and her micy mice but for now here she is in all her catty cuteness!
