Update on Benjamina

Hello

Benjamin is healing really well from his amputation – since he had his stitches out he has stopped worrying it, and the area is almost healed and the fur is growing back.

However, he is still restricted to my bedroom only as his hip does keep popping out of socket so it looks like the femoral head ostectomy will go ahead.

He is booked for x-ray on 28th and they will decide then if they will go ahead with the surgery or if he can manage without.  Given that when he does try to move too fast or too far, it pops out, I don’t think we will get away with avoiding this surgery.

I have purchased him a quite huge outdoor run thing for when he is fully healed from all his surgeries, so he can at least be outside during the day, but also be safe, as the vet did say he will not be able to be an outdoor cat any more – very sad but he is definitely happy getting lots and lots of cuddles instead of prowling the streets all night!

One thought on “Update on Benjamina”

  1. That’s cool you got the outdoor run! Let us know the details, we love sharing this kind of thing.

    Also did you see Skippy’s new blog about his FHO surgery recovery? You guys should connect IF the surgery needs to happen (oh gosh we hope not but at least stories like Skippy’s show it’s totally doable for cats).

    Give Benjamin some extra lovin’ from us!
