Amy Shojai writes about Moki

Recently I have been in touch with Amy Shojai, (http://www.shojai.com/aboutamy.html) author of 22 books, and perhaps most well known for CoAuthoring the book, "Chicken Soup For the Cat Lovers Soul." Amy, after hearing about Moki's story asked me if she could share it in a blog she writes for http://www.petside.com/. Amy has written the article and it is now up on their website.

Please stop by to check out the article and give Amy a round of thanks for helping to spread the word about Moki.

On a different note, Java's Coffee House recommended posting some recent videos of Moki on his blog. We took two videos today and thought that they would be prefect to share for Caturday. In the two videos titled Moki 3.8.08 and Moki-2 3.8.08, I tried to pay close attention to his back legs so everyone can see what the neurologist was referring to, and why we had the x-rays taken of his legs. Notice how each of his back legs twists out sideways...I recorded the video titled Moki Sleeps yesterday. This video was taken to document the new shaking in Moki's front legs. (It is possible that the shaking is a side effect of the drugs given to Moki on Thursday for the x-ray, so we will continue to monitor him to see if the shaking improves.)

Enjoy!

Well, we can certainly see why Karl gave you the Winning Attitude Award. (We noticed it in your sidebar.) You deserve it. That's a lot of effort to do so little. Hang in there, little buddy.

Thanks for stopping by.
