You beat me to it. Check around your area, make some calls. Even if you have to drive a ways, it might be worth it. This is only if you decide to have the surgery. Catsmom's and all the other's advice is right on about your cat's ability to handle all that's involved and her quality of life.

Thanks all. I don't think she'd do well with surgery and missing a leg. I've seen two vets who both want serious money to have it removed. I have one more vet scheduled.

So far they all want thousands of dollars to perform it.

At the wild bird store I go to, they had a cat mascot that was missing a leg. It seemed to have adjusted to it fine.

Though the last time I went there they told me they'd taken the cat home because it was having kidney problems.
