Sobriety got her staples out from her surgery today. She's doing well, and is on the mend. The doctor said he didn't think he's going to have to put pins in her ankle afterall (YAY!). We're looking at anywhere from 10 days to 3 weeks more with the bandage on the leg, and then a skin graft to cover the degloving wound. After that it seems it'll just be waiting for incisions to heal.

Pittsburgh is lucky to have a veterinary specialists practice, as well as a veterinary emergency clinic such as we do. For the benefit of my other friends in the area with pets, here's the info for the specialists as well as the emergency clinic. They see all types of animals, large and small (including rodents, birds, etc.).

These are all located in the same building- 882 Butler St, Pgh PA 15223. They are just off Saxonburg Blvd, and are approximately a 20 minute drive from Shadyhouse, to give you a driving time referance. Directions to both the main building, and the dermetological practice, are available at

Good to know that there's somewhere to take a sick tamagotchi . . . ;)

Did it all turn out okay, I hope? I was floating by and came across this thread on your poor, poor cat. I really hope she is okay. I've been there with cats and it's awful. It's a few years later now for you all. I hope she is fine...

Yes, she is quite well these days. She has a bit of a scar on her ankle, and cannot completely contract the injured leg as she could before (extention is not problem), but most people have no idea that she was ever injured. She's quite an old lady now- 14 years old or so, and manages a thyroid condition as well these days. She's currently napping atop the radiator as most cats are wont to do.

Thanks for the concern!
