How relaxed our little Moo seems!
Purrhaps you saw Cat Wisdom 101's post last Thursday, "Vet 101"? Our Mica Minnie Moo was lucky enough to be featured regarding her continuing problem of removing her eyebrows. We were hoping to get a perspective from another who was not so close to our situation. Dr. Miller looked at the dilemma from many angles and had a number of insightful and helpful observations. We are grateful and putting them to good use.
Throughout this whole process Layla has been absolutely wonderful, offering many suggestions and even teaching the mom the basics of animal communication. The mom started trying right away, and what a change there has been!
As early as Saturday morning the vet noticed such an improvement he stopped in his tracks when he saw MMM. Her meds have been stopped and she is out of her collar. We are relying totally on communication.
There is some discoloration where her old scabs were and MMM scratched a little spot on each temple (you can see the biggest one above), but that was three days ago. There have been no more new scabs or scratches and the mom thinks she had to learn to be more gentle cleaning those areas.
The most amazing part is the response from the other kitties! Carl has been a stress point for MMM and he has been voluntarily spending the day in Julie's part of the house since we started this. Before he never wanted to spend time there and it was his "Time Out" area if he chased MMM.
Oui Oui has just been remarkable! When MMM and the mom needed time alone, she graciously disappeared then reappeared when needed. She has impeccable timing! She is also MMM's guardian when the mom isn't around, watching over and supporting MMM when she needs it. When the mom comes home from work, she can tell its been a good day just from Oui Oui's expression. Her sweet little pixie face is all alight with pride, knowing she did a good job. And then she demands to be paid in scratches and treats. The mom is glad to oblige! Extra treats all around!
Of course, we are still working hard on this problem and will for a while, but what a difference from this time last week. We want to express our gratitude to Layla, without her there is no doubt MMM would still be in her collar and the mom in despair. She has made such a difference in our lives. She put a lot of time and thought into helping us and our words are inadequate. Just thank you, thank you, thank you for the interest you showed, your time invested, for coaching and cheering us on !
We'd also like to thank Fuzzy Tales because they suggested animal communication a month ago or so, long enough that when Layla started talking, we were listening.
This is truly a Thankful Thursday!
