Scout's House is Da Greatest!

Scout's House is Da greatest! It has got to be the best place on earth for special needs animals needing rehabilitative therapy!!! For starters the doctor at Scout's House actually took the time to read Moki's medical file and acquaint herself with Moki's medical condition prior to our appointment. You could tell that she took the time to read Moki's medical file because throughout Moki's 2 hour (yes, you read that right, 2 hour) examination, the doctor asked very specific questions regarding details that were only listed/stated in his medical file.

The doctor was very detailed when looking Moki over and even caught a slight heart murmur when listening to Moki's heart (more about that a little later)....

The physical therapist was very kind and gentle with Moki. She preformed lots of exercises with Moki, checked his reflexes, and evaluated his over all condition...













The atmosphere was light and professional, yet caring and very understanding particularly when it came to Moki's special needs...
Needless to say Moki felt very comfortable there...


The appointment ended with everyone being assigned some homework. Moki and I are to work on some stretches and exercises at home, and the physical therapist is researching additional ways which she may be able to isolate and work certain muscle groups on Moki, in addition to developing an over all therapy plan.

And now for the bestest news of all!!! Scout's House accepted Moki into their Holly's Heart Fund Program, and will be preforming all ten of his physical therapy sessions for FREE! Can you believe it!!! This place is truly about helping special needs animals and you can see it in everything they do! We are so very, very, lucky to have found them!!!

So with that said, we have a new plan. Since Moki still needs another thoracic inlet x-ray taken, and now needs to get this heart murmur thing checked out, and since Scout's House will be covering the cost of Moki's physical therapy, we are going to spend the rest of the money left in Moki's medical fund (minus the $80.00 spent on physical therapy at UC Davis, and $200.00 spent on the physical therapy exam at Scout's House,) to get Moki's heart murmur checked out, and to have another thoracic inlet x-ray taken...so you can expect lots of updates on Moki's progress in the weeks which lie ahead...


Oh and P.S.
During our physical therapy exam at Scout's House, both the physical therapist and doctor had mentioned that upon reading Moki's medical file, prior to their ever meeting him, they both wondered why I had kept Moki alive for so long...Moki's medical file is quite thick, and just reading his medical file without ever meeting him is enough to make anyone ask themselves this question, however upon meeting Moki, they both completely understood! They both saw him as the happy, loving, full of life cat, which all of you have come to know, and now after meeting him, seeing his sheer will and determination, they both want to do everything within their power to help him regain some of what he lost due to his illness, because there is no doubts in their mind either that this is a little guy who wants to be here and deserves every chance at life possible!

I would not be too worried about the slight heart murmur. Lots of folks and kitties have them and can live long, healthy, happy lives.

Love reading about Moki's visit and therapy session at Scout's House. I've been trying to keep up with how he is doing and he looks good for all he's been through.
I'll keep checking back from time to time and am sending snuggles from Taz, Runt, and Charles, for continued improvement.
You are a good mommy!
Snuggles and purrs,
