Good News!

Sorry we hasn't been around much, only anuffer week or two until classes are done for this semester.
But we wantid to share some good news Momma got yesterday. Momma has been saying bad words for a while now when she goes up and down stairs and gets up from a chair. Well, she went to the Bean V-E-T yesterday who specializes in "ortho peas", and he took some picshurs of her hind legs. Turns out BOTH of MommaBeans knees aren't lined up the way they should be. (He says they's probably always been a little misaligned, and as she gets older, it slowly gets worse) And because one of her knees tried to "fix" itself, it made extra bone, called a bone spur. The bone spur is probably what's hurting Momma, but if Momma can get her knees aligned better, the bone spur probably will stop hurting Momma and she won't get any new ones. So she starts something called P-T next week. Her paper from the Bean V-E-T says that P-T means physical therapy, but Mom says when she had P-T on her front paw a few years ago it was more like "Pain and Torture". She says Pain and Torture is worf it though if it makes her stop saying bad words when going up stairs.

I hope your Mom gets fixed up soon and is out of pain. Warm kittens wrapped around her knees will definately help her mend!

It's always easier to fix a problem when you know what it is! We hope the "Pain & Torture" works very fast!
