Happy Hoppy 5 YEAR Ampuversary Purrkins!Β 

Today and every day is all about MEEEEE
Happy/Hoppy Ampuversary to meeee
Fresh yeowwws!

Today we ask you to join us in celebrating Purrkins five-year ampuversary! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸŽ‰ 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!

Tripawd Tuesday: A Purrfect Trikitty Ampuversary Celebration!
Survivor, Super HeroΒ 
Core strength to get my prize out

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.Β 

Loved beyond measure
Wheee this is the best day!

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-winΒ Β 

  • 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 & hereΒ (they only show what is available at the time it appears) Our second favorite stepsΒ reach our bed.
    • Carpet & rug runners, stair treads
    • Modified litter boxes with ramp added last few years.
Modified box makes getting in and out easier for me & Saxton does not mind the alterations.

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 bowl
  • Less food = less weight Β (another topic entirely)
  • invest in a digital baby scale & weigh OFTEN
  • Excellent vet team/Β Find a cat-friendly practice here
Always HOPE

Never Give up Hope πŸŽ—

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!

Thank you!

Thank you Tripawds & members, for all the love and support thru all these years. We appreciate & love every one of you.πŸ’ž

Please give the furmily a special treat & smooch from us, and hoomans reading πŸ€“; please have a scoop of ice cream, cake, chocolate, or your favorite beverage on usπŸ₯‚!

This is Saxton Palace too;) Just saying
Over and Out from Purrkins Palace

MUCH GRATITUDE & LOADS OF LOVE from all of us at Purrkins Palace!

      Thank you & Jim for being here for all of us and telling people we are more special on three. Where would we be without you!
      Thanks for celebrating with us and celebrating MEEE!

  2. Hoppy Ampuversary Purrkins and furmily!!
    I am so very happy that you all got to celebrate this day. And a special thank you to Mr. P because you were our rock when we were so scared and vulnerable. I don’t know what we would have done without you!!
    Sending you all love, hugs, ear scratches, chin rubs ( in proper order of course, hahah!)

    Wishing you many more hoppy pawties on three πŸ™‚
    Much love,
    Jackie and Huck

    1. Thanks for celebrating with us, & making me feel more special! 😻
      More pawties? I’m in. 😸
      Mom said the Prince, kitties, Bo & hoomans get a treat on us k:)

      Much Ruv & sandpaper kisses❣️
      Mr. P πŸ’

  3. I am about to introduce them to watermelon, lol…I’ll make sure they get delectables and pupperoni just in case it’s a flop 🀣🀣🀣

    1. LOL, glad you had backups;) I read somewhere years ago cats are supposed to love cantaloupe. LOL, we tried, NOPE! We tried watermelon, too NOPE! I hope your crew did? At least it doesn’t waste & we hoomans enjoy!
      We have raccoons and woodchucks that ruv both. The woodchuck eats the rind & all of the canteloupe but not the watermelon?! They also get grapes on occasion & ruv grapes! hehe

      The boys ruv whip cream & butter that’s it on human food;)
      Lickable Treats for Cats came out with a new tube for cats and dogs. The boys love them! They are human-grade and lower in calories, only 4.1 a tube! I can even add water to these tubes and get extra hydration in the boys; they lap it right up. For the pups- Caru Daily Dish Smoothies Lickable Treats for Dog

      I was half-witted doing the blog yesterday; it was all about 5 on 3 but do want to add Purrkins had his recheck with Dr. R, and she is super pleased with his pawgress! We rechecked his Pheno levels; they are in the therapeutic range a little lower, but that’s good with all of us as long as Purrkins continues to do well! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

    And on top of this great celebration….and it really is GREAT……I just found out that I missed the previous blog!
    But by catching up on two spectacular celebration, I got to see lots and lots adorable pictures of our KITTY TRIPAWD ROCKSTAR!! I especially liked the one on his birthday page where Purrkins and Saxton looked like they were cuddling head to head.
    I agree with Rene, you host THE best pawties for Purrkins! The decorations, the presents, the yummies……over the too Purrfect!!! And no kitty is more deserving (of course Saxton too)

    To think what uou’ve been through as far as the health challenges for Purrkins….unbelievable! I didn’t realize that he still hadn’t gotten “out of the woods” prior to leading up to his birthday celebration. I guess I thought he had recovered sooner than he had. Absolutely “R” for RESILIENT!!
    A true “I” I SPIRATION for us all!! Yep, the NEVER GIVE UP HOPE attitude is very therapeutic!!!

    With your love, his Warrior Spirit, and leaving no stone unturned in figuring out the best treatment for Purrkins, he is still kicking the hell out of any hurdle that gets in his way!

    The contributions you and Purrkins have made to the tripawd community….to the kitties of thopis community …truly astounding! The help book will furever impact any new member for years to come.

    And, for me on a personal note, the time and effort you and Clare and others put into salvaging my pictures of Happy Hannah from fuBucket….one of THE most compassionate acts I have ever received β™₯️β™₯️

    It warms my heart to see members go from fear and despair, to HOPE because of your input and the Role M odel of Hope that Purrkins “S” SUPER HERO gives to everyone😎

    BTW, love all his poses, but especially that picture where he is lounging on his side, hugging his present and showing his pearly whites……he knows how to ham it up for the camera
    The way you designed that …hmmmm…..can’t think of what to call it .”coat of arms”….nope, that’s not it……..anyway, a very thoughtful and poignant tribute to all kitty heroes, past, present, futureπŸ‘

    Lots of love always to all Beings at the Purrkins Palace
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    PS…..Okay, if you insist, guess I’ll have to have an ice cream toast with my puppers to PurrkinsπŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks, Sally😘
      YEP, 5 YEARS ON THREE-11 years young! POOF, time flies!
      Good to see you. πŸ«‚ We miss you all. We never forget you guys! We have been so wrapped up caring and watching Mr. P getting him feeling better πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»! Yes, it’s been an up and down rollercoaster for the past 7 months. But, Purrkins is back to himself now πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» & on a small dose of meds doing well.

      Purrkins is a rock star, survivor, superhero, etc., on all levels; he has been thru too much in his kitty lifetime & an inspiration to us all; he continues to teach us countless lessons. If only we could be more cat, dog 100% of the time, right! Being hoomana not always easy!:)

      Sally, I know I can speak for the bucketeers! FU PHOTOBUCKET yea FU! There was no way we would let Happy Hannah & the beloved furmily members be taken off of their home/site! Not when we found a workaround! It was all of our pleasure to put the unforgettable warriors back where they belong permanently! HA;)

      Thanks for celebrating Purrkins big day with us; it would not be complete w/o Tripawds family celebrating too!

      Smooches to Frankie and Merry Myrtle & Spirit kisses to Happy Hannah
      Loads of love πŸ˜˜πŸ«‚πŸ«‚πŸ«‚πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’

  5. Congrats Purrkins! I’m sure you and Saxton will be around a long time with having such good caregivers, and living in a palace!
