A lovable little fighter continues her journey back from terrible injuries, against all odds.

Bernice, the Oshkosh WI cat with the worldwide following who received severe burns last summer, is doing great after a surgical procedure to replace tight, constricting scar tissue with nice, stretchy skin. After resting at the home of her angel Dr. Becky for several days, Bernice returned to Animal Hospital of Oshkosh and had some pics taken to show the wonderful improvement in her appearance that goes along with her increased mobility.

Bernice had her sutures out on Monday 9/19 and was running around the hospital in no time, though staff encouraged her to rest, as the healing process continued. A report from Wednesday 9/21 says that Bernice is showing greatly increased mobility after only ten days, and that Dr, Becky is very happy with the procedure’s outcome.

Bernice will see her surgeon again next week to have some scar tissue removed from her back half.
