Fight, Moki, Fight

Moki is a terrific little kitty who has had to face more problems than any kitty should. He was a perfectly fine tiny kitten when he was first adopted, but he got sick shortly after his adoption, which is not at all unusual. What was unusual was that the sickness left him with an unknown neurological condition which is slowly robbing him of his ability to stand and walk. He needs help for even simple things like eating and using the litter box. Moki has never given up. He tries and tries to stand and walk and is managing so far. When it got difficult for him to play standing up, he started playing lying down.  He has put up with water therapy, where he is put in water and encouraged to move his legs to strengthen them. You might say he's been getting swimming lessons. He doesn't like it much, but he does it. Now Moki is very sick. He has a lot of blood in his urine and his temperature keeps dropping, then going up again. At first his Mom thought that he had an incredibly bad urinary tract infection, but the latest tests show no signs of infection. That means that, once again, nobody knows what is wrong with Moki or how to treat him. He needs all the purrs, prayers, healing thoughts and warmth that he can get. There is a wonderful virtual nap pile going on at his blog to keep him warm. Go join in or just send him some encouragement.

                                      Moki is a fighter; there is no doubt of that.
                                      If fight were all he needed, he'd be well in nothing flat.
                                                   Let's pray he keeps warm
                                                   And safe from all harm,
                                      For he really is a remarkable cat.
