Sibling Love

It was another beautiful warm sun shiny day and we thought Moki, who hadn't been outside for awhile, might enjoy a little time in the fresh air...In the below videos you will notice that Moki is still struggling quite a bit to walk. In fact his ability to walk, as captured on the videos below is actually worsening. We are now starting to believe that we will have to take Moki to the physical therapist, before we complete raising the money for his MRI and CSF Tap. It was our hope that we could wait to see the therapist until after the MRI and CSF Tap, but I think you'll agree after seeing the videos, that Moki is going to have to go a little sooner than we planned...

Many of you have asked in the past, how Moki gets along with our six other cats. While we have tried to answer, we have never been able to capture on video, Moki's special relationship with his brother Bandit a.k.a Orange Boy(pictured below) until now....

Orange Boy who normally hangs out in the back yard most of the day, upon hearing my voice, rush up into the front yard to check out what was going on. To his surprise, he found his little brother Moki hanging out in the front yard...

The above and below videos capture perfectly, the special relationship shared between Orange Boy and Moki. Orange Boy has always been quite fond of Moki, as is Moki of Orange Boy...We will leave you now with this final video and hope that you enjoyed today's show as much as Moki and Orange Boy enjoyed recording the movies for you...

P.S.

Moki wanted to share with you a video he came across tonight which he thinks you all may enjoy...

Hi Moki, I am sorry to see that you are having a wittle bit more trouble walking, but I fink you are still doing it very well! I bet it felt nice to have the sunshines on your furrs, and it was nice of Bandit to keep you company! He is very handsome, but not as handsome as us!

That is so great that Orange Boy seems so fond of Moki (and vice versa), Glad Moki was able to enjoy the outdoors...

Karen Jo said...

I am so sorry that Moki is having more trouble walking. Orange Boy seems to be encouraging him in the first video of the two of them. I am glad that Moki and Orange Boy like each other so much.

Jane said...

Oh Moki, I'm so sorry that walking is getting harder for you. I think your Mummy is very wise to think about bring forward the Physical Therapy. Seeing you and Orange Boy together is delightful. I hope you both enjoyed your time in the lovely sunshine!

Poppy Q said...

Oh Moki it was nice to see you having smooches with your brother. I can tell theat Orange Boy loves you and is being real gentle.

I is sorry that walking is so difficult, maybe we need to find you a little harness with wheels, so you don't drag your legs around.

I am sending you warm hugs and purrs from New Zealand. We are going to save our dollars so we can give you another donation soon.

Our Momma has tears in her eyes watching how determined you are in your struggle to get around. We pray the PT's can help! Do they have little carts they can hook up to your back to help? You look so determined. We thinks too that is is harder to navigate in the grass. Our prayers go out to you and success to you in your next hurdle. We knows you can do it Moki!

Daisy said...

Oh Moki, you look so happy to be sitting outside in the sunshines! And I can tell that Orange Boy is a very special friend, and protective of you, too.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We all need a special friend, so it's great you have Orange Boy as yours.

We noticed you stopped by Dr T's new cafe. He's done quite a job fixing up the place and getting it ready to open.

You're a very determined guy.

Oh Moki & Orange Boy. I'm so glad you have each other. These are such cute videos. I'm glad you got to enjoy the warm grass Moki.

You are so brave and determined. I hope PT can help you lots.

Aw, I can see how much those two cats love each other. I'm glad Moki gets to go outside too.

mew mew Moki. Mummy and I know how you enjoyed the fresh spring air and sunshine. Good for your lungs. Once again I had to push the box of tissues towards Mummy. She did not know you were having so much trouble getting around. And Orange Boy! He is your protector isn't he?
The PT sounds like a good idea. Get your back legs working a little better! MEW!!!

We love you Moki! And Orange Boy too! MEW!!!

It is nice to see the Orange Boy does not treat Moki differently because of his disability.
