One Year Ampuversary!

Vinny being naughty on the dining room table and knows he’s been caught! πŸ™‚

I am extremely happy to report that Vinny just celebrated his one year ampuversary a few days ago! He will also celebrate his ninth birthday next month! And he really couldn’t be doing better! πŸ™‚ His cancer appears to be in remission still, and his granuloma complex condition has not flared up again either since late last year!

He had his last check up with his oncologist team in February. He had an ultrasound, x-rays andΒ  bloodwork done, and was given complete clean bill of health. It is recommended by his doctor that he have another complete check up like that every two months, but the check up bill alone is over $1000, so it’s not really realistic. I’ve done everything I can for him up until now, so now all I can do is take care of him best I can here at home with lots of love, and hope for the best.

Vinny was never a particularly agile kitty, so I can safely say that his mobility is pretty much exactly where is was when he had four legs. He can get up on all the surfaces he did before he was a tripawd, and he’s still just as mischievous. He’s happy, playful, purry and sweet as always. His quality of life is unquestionably where it was prior to his amputation. And considering the rare and extremely aggressive type of cancer he had (hemangiosarcoma), and how fast it all happened last year, I feel so lucky to have him here with me still, alive and well. πŸ™‚ I don’t take a single day with him for granted.

Thank you again to all the Tripawd community for your caring support last year when we were going through this rough time. Vinny & family are forever thankful! πŸ™‚
