Freya's tale

Our journey starts with a single step on three legs

Day 10 AA

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 11:11 pm on Sunday, December 30, 2012

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Well, ten days after amputation. I had a little scare this afternoon when I looked at Freya’s incision and there was a thin piece of what looked like dental floss sticking out from the middle of the incision by about a centimetre. Eek. It looked dried […]

Day 9 AA

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 4:18 pm on Sunday, December 30, 2012

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Another day with not much to report. I have noted that Freya seems not to be wanting to jump up to her cat chair, and that may be a matter of confidence? Not sure, but will observe. Mostly today (for Freya) was lying on the couch, […]

Day 8 AA

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 11:48 pm on Friday, December 28, 2012

Again another day post amputation has passed. Today I made an effort to be around for the whole day (I’ve been out and about the past two days) to see how Freya is coping and what she is getting up too. Sleeping appears to be the order of the day. I did notice she is […]

Day 7 AA

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 12:10 am on Friday, December 28, 2012

Well, there is not a lot to report today. Her last dose of antibiotics was this morning and fingers crossed we won’t need any more. And she hasn’t had pain medication for a few days now and seems to be doing very well in that regard. I had another ‘normal’ moment when I went to […]

Excellent website and messageboard

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 1:24 am on Thursday, December 27, 2012

Tonight I was reviewing some of the earlier sites I bookmarked in that feverish time of research we all go through when we are desperately trying to find the website that will tell us it is all a dream. There is a great site called Archie Cat and the message board there is fantastic with […]

Day 6 AA – Boxing Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 10:24 pm on Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Well, Freya started the night on the bed and then actually in the bed under the sheets with me (which is something she does quite often but not since the operation) and it was so normal! Then she got jack of that (pretty much because I dared move … move I tell you!! How dare […]

Day 5 AA – Merry Xmas

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 11:46 pm on Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Well, last night I left Freya on the lounge in her favourite position and she didn’t leave there all night.  While I felt a little lonely with no cat on the bed I think she was just content to be there. In fact she spent the majority of the day there, albeit sometimes imposed by […]

Day 4 AA

Filed under: Uncategorized — mschelleau at 11:41 pm on Monday, December 24, 2012

Well, things move apace. Freya managed to crack the e-collar last night and I had to watch closely while a cat groomed itself after three days in a collar. Do you know how long that took? It felt like hours!!!!!!! Anyway, she did move over the incision and I shooed her away but over the […]

Day 3 AA

Filed under: amputation,cat,Uncategorized — mschelleau at 10:21 pm on Sunday, December 23, 2012  Tagged , , , ,

Well, last night wasn’t quite as easy as the night before. Not necessarily because of the amputation but because when I went to go to sleep Freya had somehow managed to extend herself across almost the full width of the mattress. So I was mostly contorted, but that is something we cat owners know about. […]

Day 2 AA

Filed under: amputation,cat,Uncategorized — mschelleau at 10:27 pm on Saturday, December 22, 2012  Tagged , , , ,

Today Freya managed to get around some more, she had a solid movement (oh joy) and has taken her required doses of painkiller and antibiotics.  The antibiotics in particular feel like a win – she doesn’t take them orally at all well and so I sneak them into some of her food (strong smelling fish […]
