What would it mean to you if you knew that your kitty is going to require an amputation of one extre
How do society reacts when they see a cat with an amputated extremity?
I have a three legged cat- I adopted her that way.
Honestly cat's are pretty tenacious. She lost her limb at one year old and within a month of losing the limb she was just as agile, fast, and capable of any four-legged cat. In fact we often forget that she only has three legs until someone says something along the lines of "oh no she's limping!" and then we remember...
Overall if losing a limb is what it takes to save your cat do it. They bounce back fast.
Society seems to have plenty of love for disabled animals - everyone loves the underdog.
It comforts me to know that there is people with enough love in them so as to adopt animals with an amputated limb. They phoned me yesterday telling me that it would go on surgery today, so, by now, it should be recovering and in three or some days t
I agree w/ Anna that animals readily adapt to disability if allowed to do so. I am a animal lover to the core and would never shun any creature w/ a disability. As for society's acceptance, some people would and others would not. If I found out my pet needed an amputation, I'd get as much information as possible regarding risk and prognosis. If it was a removal due to trauma, I wouldn't hesitate. However, I wouldn't put a pet through any painful or traumatic ordeal for my own satisfaction. If my cat had a sarcoma and was hopelessly suffering, I'd let her go rather than put her through the misery of an amputation even if it broke my heart
I wish you and your cat all of the best. You must have a good heart.
I adopted this kitty while living in a rural area in Mexico. This kitty and two dogs that I had, but that unfortunately I lost, have been the only company there. The accident of the kitty has touched me, I think, as if it had happened to a being of m
We have a good friend who is a veterinarian. She has had a few three legged cats and dogs of her own. They are good advertisements for the fact that these animals adapt well to their new status and can be as happy and healthy as any other pet. As to how other people react-- that's up to them. Most seem curious and sympathetic, but are glad to see how "normal" they are.

Should more counties and cities require dogs to be spayed or neutered if now owned by a breeder?Should more cities and counties require dogs to be spayed and neutered if not owned by a registered breeder? Requiring this could cut down on the number of pets that have to be euthanized each year.
