Cool Winly's New Wheels!!

Tonight went great! The drive down was an adventure, complete with a run-in with the law, but we made it down to WhiteKittie's place with Winly in tow. The Kitty-Kart is AWESOME! We got her all hooked up and she gave it a try. I still need to make a few adjustments on the belly band to make it more comfy but so far it's working well and Winly was on her feet. She is still irritated with her cast though, and it was distracting her a little.

Not to mention the curious twins Fern and Fergie! They were being purely adorable, and Fergie showed us how she can fetch her ball so well. We even caught the two of them investigating Winly's cage and my purse when they thought we weren't looking! Those two are way more adorable than I ever imagined! And they were actually pretty cool with Winly, although Fern and her were giving each other sassy little looks from time to time. He he.

I've got a few pictures, and WhiteKitties does too. I have to post an assignment within the next forty five minutes, so those pictures are coming soon right after I do that!!

All in all great night! SPECIAL HUGE GINORMOUS THANKS to Diana and Kevin, such a kind and generous thing you have done for Winly!! I am forever thankful, and I know she'll be too when she's someday walking on her own again

Diana & Kevin you'll be happy to know that it works much better with her chest-straps installed. She can't get all turned around now. Tonight before bed I had her standing comfortably for a while and she got to enjoy her beloved grass standing up! I gave her just enough height that she can put that left rear leg in a standing position while still bearing hardly any weight on it. After all that she used the bathroom and did numbers 1 and 2, which is just awesome! She's as happy as a clam right now, heating pad warmed up and settled in for the night. And I just can't stop smiling. Today has definitely been a day that I will never forget.

One last picture before bed

Have I mentioned that Fern and Fergie are like incredibly cute? One of them (I think Fergie) was waiting for us in the window when we pulled up. We knew which house it was right away! And when we went to the door we see that face disappear and all of a sudden they come trotting down the stairs to investigate. Those two are far more beautiful in person that you could ever imagine!

I'm so glad for you and for Winly!

Diana and Kevin you guys are so sweet to make this possible for Winly.

I bet this will make it so much easier for Winly to make the transition to walking again now that she can be upright and mobile.

Here is to a happy and active future for Winly!
