Taylor… and our friends

It is now more than fourteen days ago that my doggy sister Taylor got a stroke. From an active old lady she changed into an unhappy and helpless dog…
You sent Taylor LOTS of purrrrs, kisses, healing vibes and thoughts. When Taylor got sick luckily also my husband Karl, my family-in-law and our friends Sassy, Asta, Opus and Momo were here in Limburg. So they were helping a LOT, too!
And could I tell you last Saturday that Taylor was doing much better, now I can say: she is completely better!!


When our family and friends were here, we took some more photos of them with Taylor… It was when Taylor could not walk without being held by the staff.

Asta had a plan and made a route of yellow ducks in the garden…

… and Opus and Sassy were very curious…

She wanted to let Taylor walk on her own again… and it seemed working!

Asta, Momo and Mrs. OZ were following Taylor’s small steps.

They were practicing for hours, until it was dark outside.
And after a good meal it was time to sleep! We, all the Kattenpraat cats, are sleeping in the living room or somewhere upstairs, and the dogs, especially Taylor prefers her bed in the hall at night.
But this night started not as quiet as always…

Some dogs try to sleep...

Together with our family and friends we were with 17 cats and 3 dogs…

So many of you did such wonderful things to help my sister Taylor.

And it helped!!

One of them was Bogart, he sent Airedale kisses her way…

Please, do it again! Bogart’s Dad is very ill and lays in the hospital. PURRR as hard as you can and send anything you can to Bogart and his Dad and Mom!!
