Life with a Three Legged Cat

Three legged cats aren’t as unusual as you might think.

At first, a three legged cat will need a lot of care: but that’s true of any animal (or any person come to that) who is recovering from major surgery. Once the wounds have started to heal, the cat is ready to get back to normal, but owners aren’t always quite as ready as the cat…

1. Let them enjoy the great outdoors

Cats like space. Cats like to roam. People like to feel calm, so sometimes they want to keep their three legged cats indoors. But who does that benefit? Not the cat!

It took me ages to stop worrying every time my cat went outside, but he was happy and content to be exploring, hunting, failing to climb trees and generally patrolling his territory.

2. Eating

Three legged cats don’t need special diets. At first they might put on a little weight – hardly surprising after a few weeks of inactivity as they recover from major surgery.

My three legged cat was fed the same food as his brother and allowed to lead a normal, active life. He quickly got back in shape. (Although unlike Garfield, his shape wasn’t round)

3. Scratching

Scratching and pulling claws was a real problem. My cat lost a back leg, so he just couldn’t stand on one leg and attack the neighbour’s finest trees and fence posts any more. Good for the neighbours, not so good for the claws.

We bought a thick coir doormat and fixed scratching posts on the skirting boards which provided some help, but we learned to live with the fact that the carpet on the riser on the bottom stair started to wear out mysteriously fast.

4. Grooming

Losing a leg left our cat with an annoying, just-out-of-reach patch on the side of his head. A quick comb or a rub was all that was required to sort this out.

5. Health/lifespan

Lots of well meaning people assumed that having three legs meant that my cat’s days were numbered. In fact he was fit and healthy for most of his life and lived to be 14 years old.

It wasn’t the lack of a leg that finally did for him, but advancing years and failing health. His over-active thyroid and high blood pressure were nothing to do with an accident many years previously, he would have suffered from these anyway – his four legged brother developed the same conditions very shortly afterwards.

Three Legged Cat I

…and finally

Living with a three legged cat really isn’t all that different to living with a four legged one. My cat spent 13 years as a tripod: he was happy and contented and he lived a great life.

    Hi all I got the devistating phonecall this morning that all pet owners dread, my baby 1 year old cat ‘Zya’had been hit by a car…. Following X-rays it was revealed he has a straightforward break in is front right leg and a complicated 5 piece break in is back leg and a broken pelvis.. The vet recommends amputation of the back leg.. I have not stopped crying all day and feel consumed by grief, I found this thread whilst searching for inspiration as to what decision to make for the best. It does seem for most people who have shared thier stories that most cats cope well as tripods, but at the moment I just feel so sad for my lovely little boy. I am anxious how he will cope in the first few weeks following the surgery given he also has to have the front leg pinned has anyone had a similar experience ?
    Thanks Bernadette

    Lynda and I know about the crying and sorrow, but our Sophie is now 2 1/2 years since she lost her back leg. The best move we gave her was life….it was a traumatic couple weeks, but she is doing great. She may not do everything she done before, but she is Happy and that is the main thing. Cats seem to adapt better than humans.

    It’s a tough decision…but I think you and Zya will be okay. God bless

  • Bernadette

    Hello Mike
    Thank you for your reply I just wanted to give an update on Zya. He under went surgery on the 1st of July having his left rear leg amputated and right front leg pinned and plated. After almost a week in hospital he came home and seems to be doing well although the front leg seems to be his biggest problem. He is on 12 weeks cage rest ( for the front leg and broken pelvis) we are only 2 weeks in and he is already getting frustrated and is desperate to go outside. He gets clearly distressed crying, biting the cage, scratching at the litter tray. I have given him 2 drops of tramadol which does calm him down but I don’t want to have to dose him for three months. I wondered if you had any advice or suggestions on how to manage the cage rest? There is very little on the internet I have bought a feliway plug in but not sure if this is helping at all.
    On the upside I was really worried that the trauma of all this would change his personality but he is still the loving affectionate boy he was before the accident

    Well, Bernadette, Sophie only dealt with her back leg but done most of the things that Zya is doing. However, we broke down after only a week or two and let her out. Just couldn’t take her crying and actions in the cage.She was upsetting food, not using litter etc.

    When we let her out, that is when she went into the spasms/flopping as I call it for a few days maybe a week.But when that stopped, she returned to normal.

    I’m not sure with front and rear leg injury if that is the proper thing to do.

    It’s not easy and even the doctor wasn’t sure what to do, but we felt if she was going to learn that she only had 3 legs and we were sure she wouldn’t hurt herself, we let her out. Reminder, that she went through a terrible first few days (flopping etc….she just didn’t know yet that she only had 3 legs).

    Today she is happy, goes outside when she wants, eats well. But she does tire quickly and needs grooming and scratching on her left side a lot. By the way I don’t think she knows she only has 3 legs.

    Good luck and I bet Zya will do well…It was probably a good month before we realized how good Sophie was doing.But it was worth it.

  • Karen Watson

    Thank you my cat has just lost a back leg very happy to be home!can anybody got any good advice I’m listening to help me help my lovely cat.he wants to hide under the blanket is this normal it’s only been a week

    • mike christopher

      If you see by my comments to others, our Sophie had a leg amputated and was very spooky for a couple weeks. She came out of it and I am sure your cat will too.

      Read back on some comments there are a lot of caring people here to help

    Hi in December we adopted a two year old 3 legged cat from cat protection we had just lost our 17 year old who was the sweetest little girl but suffered with horrendous arthritis our new cat whilst missing a limb is a typical teenager and nothing holds him back my only concern is that am finding despite the fact he could eat you out of house and home he doesnt appear to put on any weight and is in fact quite thin you can feel his shoulder bones is this because of all the hopping he does to get about and should we be supplementing his meals or feeding him specific food for the calories he burns ?

  • Hi.
    We are collecting Sid this week, he is a two year old tabby who had a back leg amputated quite a few weeks ago. The rspca have given him a second chance of life and he has been staying with a foster carer but in a lovely cattery. Obviously very excited to get Sid but we think it will be strange for him as he has not had a chance to ‘explore’ the bigger area as been in a cattery environment for many weeks. Hoping he will think he is in seventh heaven as he will have a chalet bungalow to explore and eventually a nice size garden. We have a 9 year old Child who is hoping Sid is going to sleep on the end of her bed at night with all the soft toys!
    Fingers crossed he likes his new life

    • Lois Lindemann

      Hi Amanda, sorry for the slowness in replying, we have been in The Land of Virtually No Internet – also known as a very nice cottage in Scotland.

      How is Sid doing? I hope he is settling in and enjoying his new life with you.

      Best wishes,

      Lois

    Just some input on what life is like for our three legged cat. Our dear beloved siamese cat is the grand age of 12 years old and we hope he has many years ahead. He has had three legs for a year and a half. The missing leg is his right back hind. He arrived home one day and I knew immediately his leg was broken. We tried a few weeks recovery in a cage but the leg didn’t mend so we had it amputated. Having him in a cage for two weeks was stressful as he was in pain and not living the life he should so it was clear we had only one option. Once the legs was removed he heeled very quickly and I don’t think he knows why he feels a little awkward but walking has been an easy adaption.
    The most immediate sign of his disability is his inadequate attempts to scratch his right ear. I’ve no idea how many times he scratched his ear before the accident but it seems an on going turmoil on his behalf and watched with a sorrowful eye from us that he cannot relieve the itch.
    He never was as agile as our tabby even as a young cat but leaping from the floor to an upper ground proves difficult. This has resulted in a benefit on our behalf as I no longer need to sterilise the kitchen work tops every day. However I’d gladly give up that privilege if he could have four legs again.
    I guess we have noticed the lack of play in him but it’s hard to tell if that’s down to old age or his disability. I think a mixture of the two is worth noting.
    We recently purchased a new kitten. It really was a spur of the moment thing and as a result hadn’t thought of the consequences. The kitten is lively as you’d expect one to be and it seems she is the more domineering pet but I can’t help think if marley ( our three legged ) had all fours he would at least let her know when’s she’s too upbeat. The problem is that as she slides along our kitchen floor on her side with front legs in attack mode ( no claws I may add!) his only defence is to fall backwards and run off. This is due to his need to put all weight on his hind legs in order to raise his front legs in defence and as one leg is missing it’s simply not possible for him to do so. I feel terribly guilty for introducing such a lively and active family member and I feel so terribly sorry for our once well respected topcat.
    Having said that I remember how I felt when one of my ex customers had one of the most beautiful cats I had ever seen. He had been bitten on his hind leg and the owner was told the leg needed to be removed. I was so shocked and upset when she said she had him put down. He was a young cat, only two years old.
    In despite of everything Marley is alive and in very good health. He certainly leads a more quiet life but I have seen him chase off a young fox in the early hours. The kitten poses a problem to him but in time I imagine she’ll become less ‘in ya face’ and respect him a bit more. He’s already warming to her and in the winter months I’m sure they’ll cuddle up. It never crossed our minds not to have him but I just wanted to let you all know of the emotional turmoil but the benefits have always outweighed the problems.

      Our three legged cat was exactly the same when I recklessly acquired a new kitten. The TLC’s four legged brother reacted similarly. The new kitten was driving us all mad with howling and fighting moves, but our cats always just retreated.

      Happily the cat from down the road (who regularly came in to the house to sit with our cats) had different ideas. He watched the new kitten pose, posture, mewl and growl at him for a while. Then the cat from down the road lost patience with the new kitten and cuffed him. That made the new kitten shut up, which was a big relief for us all.

      The other cats never apparently did anything, but eventually the pecking order somehow got sorted out. After weeks of thinking I had made a big mistake I ended up with three cats who were devoted to each other. I hope your kitten & TLC end up getting on as well as mine did.

    Hi,
    I stumbled across this thread today which has been a great help to me seeing other ‘tripod’ owners’ comments and advice! My baby, Lily who has just turned 3, recently went missing all day and night we were so worried! She eventually turned up early the next morning when we went searching for her again! Unfortunately she was badly injured on her back right leg and another small injury to her left back leg and a tiny injury under her tummy!
    We took her straight to the vets who advised that because of the severity of the injury the best thing would be to amputate her back right leg! We were heartbroken and I cried so much, also felt lots of guilt for what had happened!
    It is now 3 weeks since her op and as we expected our little fighter is back on track and getting about just fine! We are keeping her indoors but she just seems really down, she has been an outdoor cat for two years as for her first year we lived in a flat so she was an indoor cat for that time. I just feel so sad for her! I’m thinking of getting a harness for her, but I’m starting to wonder whether this would just be teasing her with her not having the freedom she was used to. I’m just scared to let her out on her own again as I would never forgive myself if she got into trouble again and she’s not as quick as she used to be now she has lost her leg! Would it be kinder to just let her get used to being indoors again or should I get a harness? Any advice or thoughts on this would be appreciated! Sorry for the long post, thanks! X

    Hi everyone, my 9 momth old cat ‘weasley’ (guess what colour he is!!) Got attacked by a staffy while he was out (the staffy wasnt on a lead) the staffy lives in the block of flats opposite me (i only found out it was the dog from neighbours whom the dogs owner had told) my cat and his brother (dumbledore) have been going outside for the last few months because my nephew is allergic to them and had no problems until now, i live in a 3rd floor flat so i dont have a garden and im a bit worried about how weasley will cope being kept inside especially when dumbledore is still and outside cat, i dont want other people to be mean to him because of his appearance

  • Kate

    Thanks everyone for your inspirational stories. We tried hard to save Merlin’s back leg – it had broken and the vet suspected a tumour but all the tests came back negative. They put in a plate and he appeared to recover fine – he had a happy summer and fall as a quad. However, last week he started to limp on it and an x-ray showed that a tumour had formed. So I reluctantly had to agree to his leg being removed. My poor brave little boy has been through so much. He’s coped well but after 4 days at home he’s turned depressed and listless. I can’t wait for that damn buster collar to come off – next Saturday is going to be a big day for us both!

    Hi everyone,
    My 4-5 month old kitten, Mowgli, was born with an umbilical cord wrapped around his back right leg, above the knee. His leg “shriveled and fell off,” as the family described it, and he know has
    3 legs. His stump is more like half a leg, though! The problem with this is that he attempts to use it. As a result, he injures it often. Currently, he has an open, hole-like wound on it… There was small amounts of pus oozing from it and i decided to irrigate it with a normal saline solution I mixed up. There is no more pus, but it is a small hole with no bleeding or anything. It is very tender and the poor baby was pacing around meowing and flickering it a bunch after it was gently irrigated- clearly in pain. He does not have a fever (ears are cool) and is definitely NOT lethargic! But I can’t help but be worried! I believe it is an abscess that ruptured. Had anyone else had this experience? If so, do I wait it out for a couple days (better or worse with time) or take him to the vet tomorrow? Thanks guys!

    Hi there,
    My name is Heather and I have a 9 year old three legged cat. He’s been missing his back left for 7 years now. I love him so much and want him to live forever! There aren’t many sites devoted to three legged cats, so I am grateful for this one. Did anyone notice back problems with their cat? If so, what did you do? Any recommendations? My cat twitches his lower back and since he is deaf and meows alot I can’t tell if he is in pain….
    Thank you!
    Heather :)

      Hi Heather! My three-legged cat twitched a lot straight after his amputation, mainly his back, near the lost leg, and what was left of his tail. He obviously hurt at first, but once his amputation wound and his other injuries had healed he didn’t seem to be in pain. He twitched a lot to start with, but he did it less and less over the years. He still did it, but not as much. My cat also lost most of his tail, so balancing was a challenge to start with, I wondered whether some of the twitching was related to him getting used to being without his leg and tail. He was only a year old when he became a tripod, he grew into a very solid cat – he was noticeably muscular around his shoulders, especially when compared to his much slimmer brother. The twitching seemed to reduce as the muscle built up, but whether that was directly connected, or it was all part of his general recovery I honestly don’t know.

    Hi
    Our 5 month old tabby Fionn had his left back leg amputated 3 weeks ago , over the past few days he’s developed a sever limp , the expense of the first Vets visit is still been paid so I’m reluctant to return as finances are limited at the moment but of course if it continues I will be forced to , is there a reason he’s limping , it seems to be a wobble in his hind hip , other times he seems to walk fine albeit on 3 legs , he’s in really good humour most of the time and is getting back to his usual loving and cheeky ways , is there anything I can do to help him or is the Vet the only option , as I said finances aren’t great at this time , please advise as best you can, thanks in advance ,just to add he doesn’t seem to be in pain but the limp or wobble is worrying.

    Regards
    Rosie

  • Heather Shosho

    Hi Rosie,
    My cat also had the back left leg amputated and had 17 staples while recovering. He had a huge limp! It took him months to fully recover…. I remember thinking he was never going to be able to stand in the littler box by himself, but he does it fine now! It’s a large surgery for an animal and it takes time to heal and get their balance back. I wouldn’t feel strange about following up with your veterinarian about your concerns, I’m sure you paid a pretty penny for the surgery and this would be considered follow up questions, in my opinion. The worst they can do is offer no advice. As for the limp, my cat has a very pronounced limp and practically hops! He’s a wierdo but that’s how he manages. Life with a three legged cat is different than one with a four legged one…. It takes some getting adjusted to. I hope this was helpful! Xx

    Not sure how many of you are still on here monitoring the website but I wanted to say “THAANK YOU” for posting your stories. It has helped me a lot.

    Last Monday on the way to the airport, my husband straddled something in the road, so did the car in front of us but too close to really see what it was until we got right on it. My husband turned around as he thought it might be a cat. He went over to it, so tiny, wasn’t moving anything but her head. He picked her up and we took her to a local animal hospital a friend was telling me about last weekend. The receptionist said she was in shock and the vet would look at her when she got there. She asked if we wanted to keep her or send her to the shelter. She also said based on what she could tell that the front left leg would need to be removed, it just looked too damaged. We decided to just have them call us with an update when the vet did the full evaluation. We proceeded to breakfast and then the airport. My husband had a voicemail from the vet when we got to the airport about the kitten, she was six weeks old and would loose the front left leg and had a fractured jaw but with surgery she would be just fine. The amount left about cost was more than what we thought we could handle but I just started praying and my husband called a no-kill shelter while I was on my first flight. I had him ask about payment plans or doing the survey is stages if he wanted to keep her. I got on my second and final flight for the day and just kept praying for this kitten that she could find a loving and understanding home. When I turned on my phone the first text I saw was my husband telling me we are keeping the bitten and her name is Delta, after the airline I was flying on. On Thursday she was strong enough to have her jaw repaired and her leg amputated. We have adjusted to having a pet with our four human children. She fits right in since my dad is also an amputee. Your posts have helped me know things we might need to do or look out for. The vet believes she was feral so we are dealing with taming her at the same time as recovery.

    Thank you again for sharing your stories.

    Three months ago my lovely 7 year old cat sustained a degloving injury to his rear right back leg and went through many weeks of treatment to save the leg. All was going well and despite the fact that my vet told me on 2 occasions that he would not lose the leg as the nerves and circulation were saved, I received a phone call whilst on holiday in Turkey to say that things had gone downhill and he had developed a massive abscess in his groin area which had become necrotic and he also had a temperature of 104 and the best thing would be to amputate! Like so many of you I was devastated and shocked but had to make a quick decision as he was sedated and they didn’t feel it fair to bring him round to have to then, possibly, sedate him yet again. I still don’t understand how it got to that stage, when we at the stage of just changing gel bandages (this is a conversation I need to have with the vet. When he came home after the amputation it was almost as if nothing had happened. He was able to walk, wanted to play and desperate to go outside. I kept him confined to the living room during the day and he slept in a dog cage overnight so that he was not tempted to do too much too soon. A day after the operation he had what I now refer to as an ‘episode’. This is where he seems unable to get up and then seems to walk backwards but keeps flopping down and seems to want to pull himself forward with his front legs but his back rear stump twitches and rears up. He seems very distressed and sometimes cries out. I have found that if I help him to lay down and reassure him that all is well, he will lie there and within about 30 seconds he is able to get up and move off as though nothing has happened. I spoke to the vet and showed her a video of him during an ‘episode’ but she said she had not experienced anything like this before and said we should increase his pain meds (metacam) for a week to see if it made a difference. I don’t feel it has made a huge difference (he seems to have one, sometimes two, of these a day. The vet has also said that these episodes could be behavioural, or some form of electronic signal to the brain or the start of epilepsy! I am just hoping that this is something he will learn to grow out of but worried as it is 6 weeks in now and I had hoped they would have stopped. If anyone has any advice regarding these episodes I would be very grateful as I just need to know how to help him and whether he will actually get better. He is also still wearing the e-collar as he kept licking the area and made it sore …more stress!

  • Heather

    Hi Tracie,
    I’m sorry to hear about your cat but at the same time, I love three legged cats! I have an 8 year old tripawd who is missing his back left leg. So, similar to your cat. Whats different is that he has been missing his leg for 5 years. When it was first amputated he couldn’t walk for what seemed like months (maybe three months), he could barely get into his litter box, couldn’t jump, would walk with a swagger, and twitch his nubbin and meow loud. I also called my vet regularly about it and she had many similar answers. From my experience it takes a long time for this injury to heal, so give it some time! If you think about it, the vet had to cut his femur bone (a very large bone) so there is probably a lot of sensitivity still going on there. My cat still twitches the nubbin, sometimes thinking he has a leg there… I wonder if they can get “phantom limb”?! We may never know since they can’t communicate what they are feeling. My cat still meows very loud, but he is also deaf so I can’t tell if it is because he is in pain or just doesn’t know how loud he is. Some things I like to do for my cat is itch his left ear back and forth like I was his back leg and he gets really into that. But, my best advice for you would be to give it more time…..the whole recovery could have up to 6 months.
    As for your vet, she/he should have let you know that amputation was a possibility. Since they didn’t that must mean they felt very strongly that they could save the leg. A vet who is performing a surgery like this has a lot of school and expertise (or they should!). I’m sure they are as bummed as you are that they couldn’t save the leg. Sometimes I think it is harder on the human than the cat…. I’m sure your cat is still in the healing process. Give him lots of love for me and good luck. I hope this helped.
    Best,
    Heather

  • Hi Heather,

    Thank you so much for replying to my post. You have certainly given me hope and now I know your story it has put things into perspective for me and helped reduce my anxiety about the whole process. I am still a little concerned about the wound site as his stitches are due out in 2 days and yet occasionally it still looks a bit sore. Am using a prescribed antibiotic cream (ISADERM) twice daily as requested so doing all the right things. I too feel it is maybe harder on the human than the cat as I feel so sorry for him that he can’t go out and I follow him everywhere in the house when he does not have his collar on and they do like their independence don’t they. Fingers crossed he will soon get better and in time back to normal. kindest Regards. Tracie

    Hi Tracie
    After Zya had his rear leg amputation he did exactly the same thing.. It was like his stump was pulling him backwards, he was very distressed during these episodes and it was awful to watch.. My vet too said he had never experienced anything like this ( which I now can’t believe as lots of people report the same thing ) the vet said it was probably Zya learning to balance again! I didn’t agree with this as sometimes it was almost like he was having a fit…it I think it must be the muscles and nerves adjusting as we have just past the 1 year mark of Zya’s injury and it doesn’t happen anymore. When it did happen I just used to keep him calm and reassure him like you are doing..
    Hope that helps
    B

  • Heather

    Hi Tracie,
    My cats wound had 17 staples and had a discharge/puss coming out of the sides for a while. The wound looked a little bumpy too. It will be so much better once it is completely healed and his hair grows back. Once the vet looks at it, he/she will know if there is anything out of the ordinary with it. I was distraught for about three months and then it slowly got better. I notice that I am VERY over protective of him! Stay strong!
    Heather

  • Hi Bernadette, Thank you so much for replying, that sounds exactly like what I feel is happening to Mr Darcey. The stump does look as if it is being pulled backwards and he tends to try to walk backwards to. I am so pleased to hear from someone who has experienced the same thing and that the outcome was good, albeit a long time to recover. I wonder if there is any way in which I could forward you a video of one Mr Darcey’s episode to see if it is what happened to Zya? I have felt as if he would never recover but you have given me hope and I’m very grateful to you.

    Heather, thank you once again for replying, have managed to have quite a good look at the area today and it seems very clean and am hopeful it is just the surface skin needing time to recover though glad he has a check up on Monday …I too am VERY protective of him, much to my partner’s dismay!

  • Bernadette

    Hi Tracie
    Of course feel free to forward the video my mobile number is 07788552487..when it was happening to Zya I was just beyond myself thinking he had suffered some sort of brain damage from the car accident and had developed epilepsy. Hopefully I can reassure you that’s it ok x

    I have a cat I have been feeding for 2 years at my apartment complex….About 5 weeks ago he showed up on my porch badly beat up and we took him to the vet, The vet checked him out and gave him antibiotics and some pain meds( for 3 days)….After about 2 weeks of antibiotics and fever the vet said in his front left leg joint has infection in it and was also was checked for FIV ( since he was a stray apartment cat ) …The results of the FIV test was Positive …SO We now have a 13 year old stray cat badly beat up and very skinny and weak and and has FIV and that is the reason he cant seem to fight the infection in his leg and its in the joint and was told its hard to fight an infection in the joint…SO the vet said the next step was amputation of his front leg….We went ahead and opted for that since I don’t think he would have gotten better other wise…Well the operation was 2 weeks ago and fever went down and seems to be getting a little better…But he wont drink water and does eat wet food we bought from the vets…We put extra water in his food ..vet thinks he is getting plenty of water since he pees and poops regular…My problem is is that he will not get up and even try to walk…He only will if he has to go potty but will not get into the cat box, he will go just outside of it…..We have been feeding him where he is sleeping but the vet said make him get up and eat his food BUT he wont…He will just lay wherever we try to get him to stand up….SO we still feed him where he is laying as I WANT him to eat and gain weight ( he needs weight so badly ) HOW do I go about teaching this cat how to walk again?? HE has no interest….I Need Help!

    • Hi Donna …just came across your post today and wondered if you have also been in touch with the Tripawds.com website? The reason I mention it is that it seems to have a lot more owners who have experienced front leg amputation so might be of some help. My cat had rear leg amputation so possibly not recovering in the same way as yours but he is doing really well now. I do feel every cat recovers in different ways and maybe yours is just not feeling confident enough at the moment. I wish I could be of more help and hope that maybe he is feeling stronger now. My very best wishes to you both.

    I am so glad I found this site. My 6year old baby suffered a cancerous tumour in her back leg at Christmas 2014 and had it all removed on new years eve. This weekend we found it had come back and will find out on Tuesday if she is going to lose her leg. My hubby thinks we should make her a house cat if she does but I disagree she loves being out and looking after her territory. Thank you everyone for posting your stories it really has helped me realise we can cope with this and get her through it xx
