Samba The Brave: Our Kitty's Injection Site Sarcoma Story

Healthy kitty 2.5 months post surgery

October 17th, 2018 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

I wanted to share some pictures of Samba over the last month or so! Our sweet kitty is back to herself and more affectionate than ever. She still enjoys the privacy of our master bedroom sometimes, but seems to be feeling well enough to also enjoy our company in the rest of the house. Her appetite has also increased significantly and she is gaining back the weight she lost. We are so happy she is so healthy at this point!

One big reason I wanted to post besides updating my friends, is to offer my kitty onesies that I made before her surgery. I would happily send these to anyone whose cat is about to undergo left front limb amputation. I lost so much sleep over this whole ordeal and I would love to save somebody a few hours of making shirts!

    Hi, Holly! Thank you so much! I’m glad for the advice on where to post about the onesies. I tried searching for a thread on that but got lost. I posted in the Best Tri-Kitty Resources forum. If you think there is a better one, or you know of someone specific w/ L front limb coming up, please let me know!
    I will find a treat for Samba tonight, just for you! Give Purrkins some ear scratches for me!

    Not sure how, but I missed several of the previous blogs. Clearly you were wll suppoeted though by your tripawd family, especially our kitty experts!!

    That’s very kind of you to offer to ‘rehome” Samna’s adorable onesies. She looked so darn xute in them.

    And I LOOOOVE the pictures here today!! She is such a beautiful gal! I do believe she knows how to pose for the camera like a runway model😎


    So thrilled to see how well you are doing and how happy you are! This is why we do what we do!

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

      Thanks, Sally! Yes, she has always been a dignified kitty. She thinks she’s the queen of the castle! You’re right, we should have a party! I will ask Samba how she wants to celebrate. Here’s to many more ampuversaries! : )
      Your support builds me up – it matters!

    Samba you make us want to dance and do the samba! I am so happy you are doing so well, and we love that your people care enough to donate your onesies. Bet you’re thrilled to get those things out of the house! Didn’t know if you saw, but we put the announcement in the Tripawds Angel Exchange in the Forums OK?

    Much love & many paws-up to you my friend! Congrats!

      Samba says “Right on!”, and sends you some purring head nudges! Thanks for putting the post where it belonged – I had a feeling I needed some help with that!
      Your friends,
      Grace and Samba
