Hoppy One Month Ampuversary, Smore!

It’s been 4 weeks today since Smore had her amputation! My oh my how the time does fly. I know I said I’d post pictures of her possible cat family, but I forgot it was Thursday today! It seems so lomg ago that I gave her to the student vet who would be overseeing her care for surgery. I remember being terrified and thinking I might never see her again if something went wrong. But she’s been a trooper.

She continues to shock me with her ability to adapt and with her amazing attitude. She’s not a very typical cat.

Over this past month, she’s learned to stalk her “prey” again and catch it midair with one paw. She can balance on her back end longer than I thought possible. She’s learned to jump up and rest on my shoulder. She’s taught me how to play cat games.

I swear she reminds me of a wrestler. She’ll attack a toy and then tap out by running into my lap or behind me. That’s my cue that it’s time to set up the hunt again.

Sometimes she goes straight for the poles to knock them out of my hands too. She’s intelligent enough to know I control them, and she seems to know her best chance lies when I lower the wand.

If I’m not paying attention, she’ll pounce on the toy to make it move for her.

her favorite toys are DaBird and a wand toy that has interchangeable ends. Her favorite though is when there’s nothing attached and she can just chase the string.

she has begun to climb again, and she’s also starting to try to use that invisible arm to cover her food and litter, which seems to pain me more than her.

She’s taken her first stroll outside on a leash and harness too. She’s also done flips in the air while playing. Seriously, there’s nothing she can’t do, except use that paw.

She has come such a long way. It’s been a little over a month since she hopped imto my life, yet I can’t remember life without her.

So here’s to Smore and all the memories she’s given me this month. I look forward to all those that are yet to come!

    Hi Smore. I’m happy to hear you aren’t letting one less leg hold you back. You’re one smart kitten chosing your new mom and brother dog. I don’t even know what a dog is…
    Now your job is to play, play, play until everyone else is worn out. These days I don’t play nearly as much as you do, my focus is on stalking butterflies.
