Moki had his six physical therapy/water therapy session on Saturday. Despite Moki being unhappy about the session, he actually swam quite well. While Moki can't quite swim on his own, he is getting to the point where he needs very little assistance once we get him going...
We hope you enjoyed this weeks physical therapy/hydro therapy pictures and video. As for Moki, we are still working on getting his UTI back under control. Unfortunately, Moki is now starting to battle some chest congestion as well. I put a call into Moki's neurologist earlier this afternoon, and hope to hear back from him some time in the next day or two. Once I hear back from the neurologist who is suppose to be consulting with an orthopedic surgeon about Moki's thoracic inlet problem, we should have a better idea of what we can do for Moki to help out with the chest congestion. (Many of you may recall that we believe Moki's cough, and some of the congestion is a result of the problem going on with Moki's thoracic inlet...) We will be certain to let everyone know just as soon as we get any new information.
In the mean time, our "Autographed Book Raffle," hasn't been doing too well, (understandably so with so much going on in the CB at the moment,) so we are going to continue to run the raffle, through the end of this month (Aug 31st) in hopes that we can raise enough money to help take care of Moki's thoracic inlet problem. We are currently not sure how much this will cost (we should know more in a day or two when Moki's neurologist returns our call...we will give everyone an update about the costs then...)

A firm GCI Group who is doing some public relations for Temptations recently sent us an email. They would like our help reviewing some training videos which where made for Temptations Brand Cat Treats. Here is a copy of the actual email we received,
My name is John Carson and I handle all the social media work for GCI Canada, a PR firm in Toronto .
One of our clients is Mars Canada, the producer of Whiskas Temptations. They recently filmed some cat-training videos hosted by trainer Rick Parker that you can see here: http://www.temptations.ca/tidbits_videos.shtml
Mars Canada is considering filming a second series of videos, so I am identifying prominent cat bloggers to get their opinion on the format. Please would you take a few minutes to watch one (or all) of the videos and let me know (1) what you think worked, (2) what didn’t and (3) any other suggestions on what you’d like to see included. If you could post a link to the video on your blog for other cat lovers to see, then that would be appreciated, as the more opinions we get the better.
Mars Canada wants to reach the people the videos are aimed at to ensure good quality information, and using social media as a new way of doing that.
Please let me know at your earliest convenience if you can help as part of the cat-blogger community ... all my contact details are below if you need further info.
This is a rare opportunity to provide your feedback and help shape the kind of information Temptations puts out to it's customers. If you would like to participate and have your voice heard, you can email John with your suggestions and feedback at jcarsonatgcigroup.com (Just be sure to use the @ sign when emailing.)
