Thankful Thursday


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!

I saw that post over at the Cat Wisdom 101 blog and I was wondering how it was all working out for you - and it sounds like it has been nothing less than amazing! Paws up for everybody - I hope things only look up from here.

That's wonderful news! We were hoping that the post at Cat Wisdom 101 helped, but getting results so fast is amazing. We're so glad that MMM is feeling better. (And Oui Oui looks SO pleased with herself for helping in that photo!)

Wonderful news! We're so happy the communication is working and we're purring for MMM to have full eyebrows soon! :)

That is so interesting but sure glad it is working so well. Sure glad to hear that MMM is more comfy now and not scratching any more. Take care.

Fuzzy Tales said...

This is really fantastic, we're so glad this is working!

In truth, the human doesn't remember suggesting animal communication--it wasn't someone else? LOL. Doesn't matter, as long as it works!

We must go check out Layla's post about this!

Annie Bear said...

This is the best news ever! Thanks so much for this update. I am very intrigued by the communication. If you have a chance, I would really like to know more about it, at least what you're doing with MM, but also where I could maybe find more info.

Again, this is wonderful, and three cheers for Oui Oui!

Bernadette said...

That is truly wonderful. So glad you could learn this new skill and were able to use different treatments, and that Layla could help you!

Kitties Blue said...

We are so happy for MMM. We hopped over to Cat Wisdom 101 from here and read the post you suggested. We had seen it but not read it because alopecia is not a problem at our house, but we do have some of the behavioral problems, and we think we could really use some of the info to help us out. Thanks for pointing us there. Sending purrayers for MMM's healing. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

What a wonderful post. Thank you for the update on how our pal MMM is doing. We read the post over at Cat Wisdom 101, and were wondering how things were progressing. It makes us smile real big to know that things are looking up, and all you kittehs are doing great with all of this.

Hugs to you all, sweet friends!
