Hi everyone.
I've not been doing to bad at the moment. I spend more time downstairs, than I used to and and I do move around a bit more, but not as much as I should do. I have left my self harming spot alone for a few days so that's clearing up again, I will do my best to leave it that way but I cant make any promises. Yesterday I was sick a little bit and didn't eat a great deal, when I do eat its very slow, we have no idea why I have started to eat slow, my mouth has been checked by the vet and all was OK. Today mom gave me my dinner and a few minutes later I threw it all up. If it continues to be a regular occurrence I will have to go and get checked to see if some thing else is going on. I am all right in my self. I am managing going up the stairs and I can get quite a speed up but still a little wobbly coming down but I don't land on my bottom so much now.
I hope you will all support myself and other cats on here like Queen Tallulah with cancer awareness.

It happened!!!! We got chicken for supper, yippee!!!
I have been downstairs most of the day today, snoozing on the sofa and generally watching the world go by. Mom and dad have been trying to encourage me to have a little play, but I just started to get teasy with everyone one, It felt like they were all watching me to see what the tripod would do and when you got youngsters in the house you don't want to fall on your bottom in front of them, its just not cool. So it was easier for me to play at being in a bad mood.
Didn't eat my tea, really wasn't interested. Watched mom put something strange in the oven, after a while I could smell something rather tempting coming from the oven. At supper time when it was taken out, the excitement in the kitchen of everyone trying to sneak a piece was quite fun to watch but I didn't try to join in, I waited for it to be brought to me, mom tried to coax me out but I wasn't going to move.
Mom told me I have to start moving more or I will have to visit the vet again as its not doing me any good. I just don't know why I wont be more active, the only activity I have done today is make the sore on the back of my neck bleed again.

DDP two days in a row, I feel so very honoured.
I have had a good day today. I've done quite good an the food side, I came down for breakfast and stayed down stairs on the sofa for a while when mom left for work. When mom came home I was upstairs but slowly came down the stairs to hassle her for my tea, but i wasn't really interested in what was on offer so I plonked myself on the sofa for a bit of a snooze. When dad came home, it was then time for them to go shopping and get me some different food so I waited on the sofa. I have been downstairs for most of the day, not exactly socialising with the rest of the family, more supervising, and I do like to have a moan when they get too close to me. Supper time mom gave me some of the new food she brought for me, cant say I was impressed, in fact I walked away form it and helped myself to someone else's supper and they were quite happy with mine. I do have to keep mom on her toes, maybe tomorrow I will get chicken. At the moment I'm sat on the sofa in-between mom and dad, getting lots of fuss. Mom did try and exercise my other back leg to help make it stronger but I wasn't very co operative.
Thank you all for your gifts and comments, it has meant a lot to me and my mom.

What a day ive had, and I find im a dairy pick.
My appetite has sort of stabilised give or take a meal and I have found I can get quite a speed up on 3 legs when I put my mind to it as mom found out when she was coming in from the back garden she didn't realise I was waiting the other side of the door and raced out as soon as she opened it. I didn't go far, the garden is cat proofed so we cant go out, I just wanted a roll around and be silly for a few minutes.
Yesterday I came down stairs a couple of times and sat on the sofa with mom and dad, so I am trying to be a bit more mobile.

This afternoon it was off to the vets for what is hopefully my last visit. They are still very pleased with my progress, but disappointed with my self mutilation but its been a big adjustment for me so they let me off. I have to work on a couple of things or else mom has to take me back. I have gone from weighing 5.7kg to 5kg so I have got to try and put weight back on, so its going to be a case of mom going shopping tomorrow to find different foods that I might like. Mom says I am quite skinny and is very noticeable when she looks down on me when im standing. I also have a lot of muscle wastage which I need to work on and get them back to being strong.
Mom also asked why I sometimes shout out when I am picked up or moved, she was worried I might still be in a bit of pain. The vet all seemed ok, I didn't mind being poked or prodded and that it was because my nerve endings are still raw and it will take a few months for everything to knit together and settle down properly. Ever hit a nerve or trap a nerve, then you will know what im talking about, it can bring tears to your eyes let alone make you yell out.
So its up to me now, be brave, stand tall and hit this head on.

My eating has improved, mom got me different food and I am enjoying it, intact I clear the bowl each time. At dinner time today I came part way to meet her with my dinner. On the down side, I have started self mutilating, made myself bleed this morning, it was on an old patch that had cleared up lovely but my urges got the better of me, at least it wasn't my big wound mom's given me a little rescue remedy to see if that helps calm me down, tasted horrible. If its not one thing its another. Still wobbly on my legs but i'm getting better at jumping on to the bed and using the litter tray, cant get used to not being able to scratch one side of myself when I have an itch, mom says I pull silly faces when I try but at least I have staff that will scratch it for me.

I didn't do that well with my eating yesterday, hardly ate breakfast or lunch but I did better at tea time and supper. I had the last of my pain relief and antibiotics yesterday so I go solo now. In the early hours of this morning I was sick 3 times but there was nothing to bring up. I had breakfast a bit later than usual as mom waited for my tummy to settle and I ate a small amount. At dinner time I ate again but very slowly, mom sat with me to make sure how much I ate and that I didn't let anyone else eat it. Moms hoping my lack of appetite is due to the fact that Im not doing much exercise as I used to but if it continues much longer I will have to visit the vets to see what is going on and maybe get an appetite stimulant. My wound is still looking good and Im beginning to get a bit of speed up when walking until a land on my bottom.

Its been a quiet day for me today.
I didn't eat my breakfast then went into hiding, mum coaxed me out for my dinner and sat me on the bed, I had a little nibble but not much. Mom was working late to night and dad wasn't home to give me my tea with my pain relief in it so aunty mom came over to give us all tea but I didn't eat hardly any of it. It was nice to see aunty mom and she gave me plenty of fuss and she had nice cuddles with Tilly Mints boys. When mom came home she got us all supper and brought mine to me with my pain relief in it, I was in hiding again. She told me that if I didn't eat my supper then she would have to take me back to the vets and that they would put a thermometer up my bottom, well, I didn't much like the sound of that so I thought I had better eat something, it took me a while but I slowly munched my supper and I managed to eat nearly all of it. She checked my wound to make sure I hadn't damaged anything, all looking well but mom is a bit worried as to why my appetite has died off a bit and that I keep hiding. Shes hoping its because I need quiet time to adjust.

Well, off I went to vets again today for my check up. Wasn't too happy about going into the cat basket, but I was a good boy in the car and sat quietly, mom was worried I was going to get a bit fidgety bit I didnt.
They are extremely pleased with everything, they said it wasn't what they expected it was sooooo much better. There is no swelling, fluid build up and the weeping seems to have stopped, I don't have any scabby bits either its all looking very clean, they couldn't believe it. I did a little walk around for them, i tried to show off a bit but im still wobbly on my remaining back leg and fell on my bottom a few times but I think they were impressed.
I go back again next Tuesday, but mom still has to keep a close eye on me for any changes because mom was told that sometimes if a cat seems to get over things quickly can result in a set back.
Thank you all for keeping up to date with my progress, it means a lot that so many of you are interested and have been purring for me to get well.

After all the excitement of yesterday, ive had a quiet today.
Mom woke up about 6.00am this morn and I was not on the bed, she searched upstairs, no sign, then she looked under the bed and there I was. I have been under the bed for most of the day, I come out when im coaxed, then when no ones around I go back under. I think everything that has happened has caught up with me and I have needed time by myself. I have eaten ok today but not as much as the last couple of days. My wound is looking good, no swelling or bruising but it dose weep a little, esp when I have a panic moment or try to get up too quickly.
Tomorrow I have to go back to vets for a check up. I have coped extremely well so far, I have not self mutilated, which was what everyone was afraid of and Im coping with the loss of my leg very well, just need to build strength up in my other back leg, that will come in time.

I am so excited to be DOTD, it really has cheered me up and I have had so many lovely comments and gifts, thank you to you all.
I had a more restful night last night, didn't panic so much but I kept waking mom up, think she slept with one eye on me all night. The first thing I did this morning was make my wound weep a little.
I have been very quiet today and haven't moved very much, only to use the litter tray which I fell over in, very embarrassing but dad was there to help me up. At tea time it is time for my pain relief meds, so mom was very surprised to see me come half way down the stairs to get my tea. I was very hungry and couldn't wait for room service. I came down the stairs very slowly but couldn't manage to get back up on my own, mom said it was a great start and at this rate it wont be long until im racing around the place, I think shes on a different planet as I have never been one to race around the place, think I was a sloth in a previous life. Did have a very wierd moment today, had an itch behind my ear, wnet to scratch it and nothing happened.....thought I was lifting my leg but when I looked there was just some twitching around my bottom end, it looked and felt very peculiar, mom had to scratch my ear for me. Time for more recuperating sleep me thinks!!
Thank you all again for everything.
