Tiga the Three-Legged Cat
Meet Tiga, the three-legged cat. "How come?" you ask.
We found him in the neighbour's garden shed. One of his legs seems to be fractured and by the time we found him gangrene has already set in. We took him to the vet and he amputated the rear right leg. For a time after the operation our little kitten, Kris, chewed at the amputated spot much to the discomfort of Tiga. The joke is that Kris is hungry and is looking for a drumstick to eat.
Rub him in the right spot and he will raise his amputated limb to scratch the itch. Seems like cats have phantom limbs too.
