Rory's Journey

Rory, Tuxedo Cat, battles forepaw tumor with amputation

Rory's Journey

Updating my progression!

It has been over 5 weeks since Mom decided my left forelimb had to go.  I do admit I rather liked it, despite the tumor growing on it.

But I continue to adapt, mostly.

Saturday, two days ago, Mom heard a cat scratching on Cee Cee’s scratching post.  Several times.  She turned around from her serious computer daze, and Discovered that it Was ME!  Like a  squirrel (as she says sometimes) I can stand on my hind paws and do what I need to do.  Beg for more food, more water?  Yeah, my hind legs are getting strong.

About 3 days ago I actually jumped up onto the kitchen sink!  Granted, Mom didn’t see this happen, and I probably used the lower cabinet top that never really quite shuts as a landing platform for this feat.

Mom’s bed is really high — she brought me in to sleep with her in early mornings shortly before she had to get up, twice so far — she’s a light sleeper and we cats are really nocturnal and pesky… I find that maneuvering over quilts, blankets, and her uneven body is really beyond what I like to do.  Uneven territory causes me to stumble.  She and her bedding are really too lumpy!

Last Friday, Obi-Wan (another cat here) chased me.  I fell over on my shoulder, thinking that that shoulder would work for some reason.  Obi just looked down at me, and didn’t pursue his aggression. I guess I looked submissive or something.  But I’ll get him.  Someday.  But note this: Obi-Wan Kenobi is NOT my only hope!!

    I’m so impressed with your feats. I would love love love to see a picture of you doing that skwirell imitation on your scratching post. Pay attention Momma, have your camera ready!

    As for you Obi Wan…look out, Rory’s on the mend.
