2 Weeks today! Purrkins is back

It has been two weeks today since Purrkins arm was amputated. Unreal it has been two weeks already.

Yesterday after his acupuncture treatment Purrkins played with his yeowww fish! He rolled and rolled he figured out how to hold the toy with his one arm.


Purrkins went back today to MSU to get his stitches removed.

He quivered the entire time.  I felt terrible for him.


The surgeon is pleased with how everything looked and said Purrkins is FREE – no more t-shirts or onesies!

He is allowed to go back to regular activity!

I attached his Pathology report below.



Regular activity became RUN and JUMP all over the house lol

He was ready Mom was not. He does so well I shouldn’t have been so worried.

He amazes us again! He wanted to go down to the basement Mark, and I thought we would be ready in case he needed us. Well, he RAN down before we could do anything! 👀

Mark and I were both in shock did you see that?! He investigated the entire house every room in fact! I thought he must be exhausted by now. No, he rested for a few minutes, and he was back up again.

What an amazing day! Purrkins is AMAZING. We are both in awe. His Grandma and Grandpa were able to watch all thru videos and pictures. They were also amazed.

Saxton just watched Purrkins go everywhere, they smelled each other, and that was ok for a short time. Saxton then gave him a big hiss  😒 Hopefully a little time we can get them back to being brothers.

Purrkins is back to himself today! We can certainly say we did what was best for Purrkins!

He is back to his happy, active self!  We also know his leg was bothering him more then he was showing us! He had slowed down and was sleeping more than usual before the surgery.

We will work on some more videos and get them uploaded of him getting around!

1/2 day of being a free man again and on 3 legs has been a joy to see!

We are so thankful we had a choice and were able to save Purrkins life!

I know cancer has no rules. But this is the greatest news we could get! Clean margins, cancer left with the leg!  We are running with that!

We are going to live and celebrate a long cancer-free life! 🙏


Purrkins all time favorite hang out! He can watch the birds and chipmunks!

Thank you, everyone, for being here with us thru this terrifying time!  Yeah, Purrkins! 🎉🎉🎊🎈

Love to all XOXO

  1. That is so great to hear!!! It’s so neat to see them start acting like their old selves. I am looking forward to the stitches out day for Tia!

    Our other cat has also been hissy with Tia, but luckily no physical aggression. Hissy I can handle, that will wear off in time.

    1. Yeah we can handle the hissy too, we have a fine line between the hissy and whats next . We are just watching close. We have had a few fights before 😬
      Im sorry you guys have the hissing too. Im also relieved to hear that its not just us.
      Keep looking forward you’ll be so happy and more amazed! Tia bounced back quicker ,we had more pain and on meds longer. They kept Purrkins longer in the hospital too.
