Gaining Confidence Everyday

Little Lacee
Lacee loves Oscar
LG loves Lacee
Where are you going?
Gotta wash that face
Gotta wash that neck too.
Missed a spot.
Mac wants to play too.
Getting more confident everyday.

I think she fits right in, don't you?
Those of you that don't know Lacee's story, you can read it here, or just go to my archives, labeled Lacee.

She has made tremendous progress in the last two weeks. She walks 90 percent of the time, with great confidence. She stands so pretty and tall, letting on an air about her, like she is so proud of herself, almost like she just discovered her legs for the very first time.

She made her first jump last weekend. I was so very proud the first time I witnessed her crouching down low, wiggling her body, looking at me then back at the shelf contemplating, then up she went. She still climbs more then jumping, but she is definitely gaining strength in her legs, and jumps now about 50 percent of the time.

The rest of the cat pack has accepted her, and she loves all of the attention. She is still supervised while loose with the cats, and will not be left alone with them, until I know she can safely get away from them if needed, although I don't think she will need to, but best to be safe.

Each and everyday, we all just fall in love with her a little bit more. She is a very special little soul who has brought so much to our lives. If someone would have asked me 2 months ago if I thought she would ever walk normal, or close to normal, I would have said no. Look now, who am I kidding? She is my little walking miracle.

She is beautiful. You did a great job with her. This was a nice way for me to start my day.

I love cats, despite the fact now that I am "owned" by a very spoiled German Shepherd! Cut pics - how many cats do you have now??


Stacy said...

Awwww! That is so sweet!
I'm so glad she's doing well!!!

Betty said...

What fantastic pictures to go with an equally fantastic story!

You mentioned keeping her safe in case she needed to 'get away'...looks like her only threat is being 'licked away to nothing'...haha! I'm so glad the others love her so much; and, glad she is able to walk and jump. What a success you are!

Thanks for the update..keep 'em coming.

Awesome! It is great to see how doing so well in the cat room! And even better to see her using her back legs so well. Wonderful post!

Oh T, what a happy story this is turning out to be. Lovely! So sweet that she has made some feline friends too.

Anyway, this is exactly why I left an AWARD for you over at my place where you can pick it up if you want to. You sweet woman!

How do you get them all to get along? She is beautiful:) The cat I spayed escaped and went back to her family. She came to eat this morning but didn't want anything to do with me.
