I have hope!! Wampi took some steps today!

Wampi says hewwo!


Wampi walked a little bit around the living room today for the first time since Friday! He didn't seem to be in much pain and he didn't freak out or start meowing or anything. WOW!!

Today ... I took him out carefully and set him down in the middle of the living room. He took about 5 steps before laying down and resting. He got up a little later and took a few more steps around the living room sniffing at the baby toys that were still sitting out.

His back legs bend at weird angles and he has a little bit of a limp but he did it!!! He walked around the room and he didn't meow his little head off! I couldn't believe it. I started crying, I was so happy.

I have hope that he will be able to use that leg. I'm even daring to hope that he won't need anymore surgery. Little bit by little bit...one day at a time, right?

Here are some pics!


He's got a limp but he managed to walk a little around the room before resting.



His back legs bow at a really weird angle but he got around!

Wampi without his cast ... he's got such furry paws!


The cast-free leg is a lot thinner than the other one ... I'm hopeful that the more he moves around he will regain his muscles. =)

This is wonderful to see him up and moving around. Awesome. I have been checking the site all day long waiting to see how he was doing. One day at a time. Each day will be better for him. Thanks for posting today.

This is wonderful news and he will become more acustomed to not having that extra weight around now so hopefully he will be using the leg little by little :)

Three cheers for Wampi. Look out bugs, shadows and ghosts. The man has returned.

Here's hoping each day is a noticible improvement. All your friends and pals are pulling for ya Wampi.

Good job Cam.

Wow, I hope he feels better... I'm guessing with a little excercise he'll bounce back in no time.

So, WHO threw this cat out the window? Sorry, joining a little late in the game. Hope he learns to get around soon and doesn't suffer long term disabilities - it'd be a shame for him to have been saved only to be crippled and in pain forever.

We don't know who did it. I have my theories as to who did it but I don't have any proof. Wampi was found bleeding and screaming, on a 2nd floor fire escape by a neighbor (in a place where he couldn't have fallen on his own, with injuries that he wouldn't have sustained if he had fallen naturally, and in a totally different apartment building than mine.)

If I knew (or find out) who did this ... grrr...everything I write sounds homicidal. Let's put it this way, I would do everything I could to get justice.

During the next week, I will be helping him take more and more steps. Early next week the vet will evaluate him to say what he thinks his long-term disabilities may be ... he's already recommended another surgery but we were hoping that it might not be needed. We'll see.
