My "Pal" Woody

You may recall from a previous post or two that the lady used to pet-sit for the former landlords' dog, Woody. He would come down to our place for a visit and I liked him even though I was a bit wary.

Woody was diagnosed with bone cancer and three weeks ago he had his right rear leg amputated. The lady helped take care of him the past few weeks and she is happy to report that he is doing very well and is almost back to his old self!

A couple of days ago.  Just returned from a walk.


He gets around just fine on three legs. I won't be able to visit him anymore because we moved away and I am not a "traveling" cat, but I wish him the best.

Thinking of the "old days" with Woody.

Glad to hear Woody is on the mend. That 'C' word is scary. Take care Mr. Black.

So happy to hear Woody is getting along okay. We anipals most of the time adjust very well to losing a limb. Sending healing purrs to Woody so he heals rapidly.

King Mr. B! What an inspiring story! TW saw a three-legged doggy earlier this week scampering up a hill just like nuffing was different at all--she is happy to see that your woofie furiend is looking so great ;-)

It seems like my Human is getting a-l-m-o-s-t well enough that she will start helping me visit again. Sheesh. This "floo" stuff is really a pain--mostly for ME, you understand. Service has really suffered around here, let me tell you. Sigh.

Keisha said...

Hug for ur friend. (((Hug)))

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

The Human has been back at work for awhile now. Frankly, it's been kind of a relief not to have her around here all day stinking up the place in that ratty baffrobe. Sheesh. What a drama queen!
