Hoppy Tripawds Awareness Day!
We made this fun video attached below Tripawd Purrkins- Footloose to show you how Purrkins plays on three legs;) For people who are not aware or new here Purrkins does go for acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments every two months now or sooner if needed and has since his amputation. The duration depends on how Purrkins is doing. We wholeheartedly believe without our Dr. Matt chiro, acupuncture, immune support, supplements, and core strength, etc. Purrkins WOULD NOT thrive as he does. It is not cheap nor easy to do, but we make it happen.
We can without a doubt tell when he gets out of whack, and it’s no wonder. He still goes as if he has four legs when he plays and what choice do we have. We do our best to curtail his play but as you will see he is a crazy man on three on his own. This is Purrkins. We could never take away his play time with cats it’s not always easy to get them moving but get a wand toy, butterfly toy, kitty bonks or his favorite organic Q-tip’s ZOOM/ZOOM!
We do take all safety measures in the house he has traction (rugs) thru the house, and you will see in the video he hops to each rug! He does not jump off of the furniture he uses all of his steps. We don’t do long stretches of playtime. Purrkins gives it his all and takes a break. This video below is of MANY play sessions!
We still do our core strength exercises.
- the meerkat pose (up/up’s) – stand for treats
- balance pad
- food puzzles
I work out for treats. please
Mom says Up/Up’s and I stand
I massage Purrkins after each play session. He is still using his farabloc and knows when and where to find it! Every bit helps on top of seeing our Dr. Matt for acupuncture and chiro. Purrkins is on two legs a lot of the time as you can see in the video while using his core muscles most of the time.
We slowed some clips down to see Purrkins in action because he is so fast & AMAZING!
I hope this brings anyone watching a smile! He lights our world up every day!

Thanks, fur watching
NEVER leave a q-tip unattended with your cat! It’s not a safe toy! Purrkins loves the q-tips because they fly like prey and are easy for him to toss with one front leg! I never leave his side we play and throw the q-tip’s away afterward:)
Purrkins has been on three legs for two years and seven months. He is more active on three than his brother is on 4;) Tripawds do have more fun! We don’t endorse crazy this can take a toll & has. We do our best to balance things.
Much slower paced FUN! Such a ham! He has no problem grabbing his toys with one arm:)
Huge thanks to a particular viewer for the prize!😘
Purrkins inspires us every day we are furever grateful we took that dang leg! He thrives on three! Disabled? Ha, NO WAY! DIFFERENTLY ABLED!
