We were warned that this could happen. The goal is to remove as much tumor and cancer as possible . . . which doesn't leave much healthy skin for sewing things up. We chose this option, with its challenges, over amputation.
No climbing, jumping or even much walking at this point. Only out for a bathroom break (on the leash) and right back inside. The less she moves the better at this point. Feeling guilty now about letting her lie on the couch. That up and down motion should have been avoided : (

Note to others: Listen carefully to the Vet's instructions about what to do and what NOT to do. We had just put our 20 year old cat down at our local vet . . . . before picking up Cider to bring her home from Alta Vista. I don't think I listened carefully enough to the post-op instructions. I should have kept Cider off the couch and totally minimized the amount of motion and movement in her leg. Her skin was far more fragile that I was aware.
