Hey everyone, cats mom here! Just wanted to update any and all followers. Cat is doing great I had thr complete surprise and joy when I went to pick her up from therapy today. I got to see my sweet girl using arm crutches to walk! Granted she had the help of her therapist and the assistive belt but this is a HUGE accomplishment! She has only ever tried those crutches 1 other time and it was a horrible disaster. I feel so blessed to have gotten to see this progress, and I wish I could have captured it for you all to see as well!!
