Happy Hoppy 5 YEAR Ampuversary Purrkins!
Today we ask you to join us in celebrating Purrkins five-year ampuversary! 🙌🏻👏🏻🎉 Whoo-hoo! There are no words of gratitude to express how thankful we are to have Purrkins hopping on five years later. Let alone thru this last year. 🎁 Purrkins is, in every word, a survivor, superhero, admired, adored. The list goes on. Every day is a celebration!
You would NEVER know today Purrkins has been on three legs for 1,826.2125 days and counting. We don’t look at Purrkins differently; I can hardly recall him being on four after five years.
Some of Purrkins secrets are
- Loads of love and spoiling (obviously)
- Purrkins Palace
We call the house Purrkins Palace because it is all set up for Purrkins to go about his life as he did on four on three. Saxton enjoys all the benefits as he ages too. Win-win
- Steps– to favorite perches or anywhere Purrkins leaps up and down to protect that remaining front leg. Purrkins took right to them five years ago. He uses them daily. Our favorite steps & here (they only show what is available at the time it appears) Our second favorite steps reach our bed.
We added the ramp because Purrkins stands on his back two legs to poop. Being a tripawd, he only has one front leg to balance on the lip (very little lip) of the litter box. The ramp provides a more prominent perch for that front leg to balance on. Purrkins uses the ramp afterward to get out w/o hopping over & out the side of the box.
- Raised food & water bowls
- Less food = less weight (another topic entirely)
- invest in a digital baby scale & weigh OFTEN
- Excellent vet team/ Find a cat-friendly practice here

We wish anyone starting this journey the absolute best it is a horrible decision to take our beloved furmily’s limb! Hold onto HOPE! We never know how much time we will be gifted, so make the most of every single day! Never look back & never ever giving up HOPE!
