I hope Tigger gets on well at the vets. I am thinking of you both.

Okay so the update is that the vet is happy with how Tigger's leg currently looks, she's got to be kept in for another month to give her leg a good long chance to feel better, she's able to use the leg by herself so doesnt need physical therapy at the moment to help her use it again, she still needs to rest it as much as she can though. :love:

The vet talked me through what was done in surgery, they had to remove a lot of the cruchiate ligament (idk if i got the spelling right) cause the kneecap crunching around and dislocationing and stuff was causing more and more damage to that as time was going on, its likely that she will get arthritis as time goes on (in that leg) but we can cross that bridge when we come to it.

Removing the crutchiate ligament or whatever, they had to replace it with stuff that will stay in her leg forever, what they used to pretty much rebuild the inside of her leg can never be removed.

Tigger means everything to me (so does Willow), Tigger is my last actual link to poor sweetpea Ebony :cry:

Ebony must of been with her ........

It all sounds very positive. I am so pleased the surgery went well. You are doing such a wonderful job of caring for Tigger.

There's another update: Tigger is forgetting she is supposed to be resting her leg, sneaky girlie crept outside when meowmy took a bag of rubbish out to the bin ready for bin men tomorrow, she been digging around near the door trying to make the door magically open so she can go into the garden, thinking i could get the harness and put it on her and take her into the garden to get some fresh air, hoping that will cure her "cabin fever" if she accepts the harness

Harness sounds a good idea, hope she will accept it.
Glad she's doing better, hope she will rest her leg.
