Jack the kiwi cat

His three-legged journey

Jack the kiwi cat

Day 5 post surgery

I was teasing Mum that Jack is now stringing her along to see how much he can worry her after I went over and got him to cheerfully take his meds in kitten food.

Sardine water is still working as a good source of fluids, and we will reintroduce some limited dry chow in the next day or so.

Jack a master at finding spaces to hide and when I found him curled up asleep shoulder side down under a dresser I figured if he can lie on the shoulder it’s not that sore. He let me have a good feel along the wound and there is a bit of inflammation but nothing to worry about.

It will be a relief when he starts playing a bit more but he is enjoying his sedate escorted walks onto the decking area (this is a verandah with no access to the garden and we’ve adapted it to be cat proof) with Jenny as his escort. Once he gets a bit more agile we will have to put some shade cloth extensions on the railings to prevent him trying to jump onto the top of the railings before he’s allowed out unsupervised.

    Jack, you are quite a character!

    It’s really hard not to spoil a tripawd, especially when they’re as cute as Jack! Jack is really working’it too!

    Jack will regain all his sparkle and start playing more as he gets further and further away from surgery recovery.


    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
