Welcome to Nando’s blog

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!



This blog is being started in honour of my cat Nando. She has inspired me through her strength and bravery in the face of recent events. Nando recently became an amputee after what the vet guesses were likely to be either a road traffic accident or fall from a height. I am hoping that writing about our experiences may nurture a small seed of positivity out of all of the negativity. I will be starting with the accident, the surgery and then Nando’s recovery.

Some posts are going to be from my perspective, and I also hope to write some from what I have imagined being Nando’s perspective. I am also considering writing a fictional post about Nando’s past before she went to the rescue; although at the moment it will be focused on her recovery, and life after amputation.



My name is Shannon and I have three cats. Nando is one of them; we rescued her two years ago. She is a beautiful tortoiseshell, who will be 4 on the 1st of September. I attached a picture of her that I took a few months ago, and will be including pictures to all of my posts so that you guys will be able to see her for yourselves. Because she was adopted we are not sure of her exact age, but this was the vets’ estimate and we celebrate her birthday on the day we brought her home.

My cats have their own Instagram account which I have featured on this page. It is updated regularly, but I will be going into more depth here.

I hope you enjoy reading our blog, and maybe it can help others going through the same thing. Never in my life did I expect to be faced with such a challenging situation with multiple difficult decisions, and I encourage anyone that needs/ wants to – please reach out to me if you are struggling with anything similar. I am here to help.
