On 4 legs or less, ANIMALS ARE INCREDIBLE!
Meet our friend James.
The first thing you notice is how cute he is!
However some people, especially those in the "biz" might notice: a) he's a cat b) he's a tripod!
BOTH things seem...well, frightening from a rehab or pet parent perspective.
There are more cats than dogs in U.S. households & they are "rehab-able"!
As any pet parent of a tripod will tell you (of ANY species), they are FULLY FUNCTIONAL.
Surgeries such as amputations (& FHOs) seem so barbaric because of what happens and how they are sometimes referred to as "salvage procedures".
But just as you wouldn't have a family member undertake such procedures without appropriate physical therapy, neither should your furry family member.
There are plenty of Tried 'n True, Tips 'n Tricks to make the process go more smoothly- for everyone. I promise! And have helped countless others.
If you're hesitant on opting for your pet to have these "saving" procedures [or to open your heart and home to a special needs pet] for fear that they will be limited and unhappy?
As James' mama, Lisa, will tell you, "Tripods can do anything a 4-legged cat can do."
