New Photo ~ Handsome Mika & OrthoPets Update

Mika Orange Tabby Cat
Handsome Mika sitting on the chair by our bed :) He's so sweet!! I have been in contact with my vet tech at OrthoPets about Mika's House Slipper. She called & talked to me about the problems I was having with the slipper. She gave me a lot of good ideas to try like feeding his special treats when we are putting the slipper on to distract him from what we are doing. She also made me a video using her own cat showing me how to hold Mika's leg so he is more comfortable & relaxed when we are putting the slipper on. I will keep you all posted on how it all goes. Question... Why are we trying to put a slipper on Mika if he can walk around fine now? Mika does not walk around in a way that I would call "fine". Yes he can get around where he wants to go but on the hard floor he is not nearly as agile or mobile as Anakin is even on two legs. Mika walks hunched over & hobbles along very slowly on the hard floor. It is only on the padded carpet that he can kind of hop & run really well. I think getting him this padded slipper will help him be able to hop and run on the hard floor. Even if this slipper doesn't work out at least I will know that I tried to help him be more mobile. I will post some video this week of Mika walking around on both the floor and carpet so you all can see what I mean.


  1. I hope you can get the slipper worked out for Mika - do keep us posted!

  2. Keep at it, I remember trying contact lenses for the first time, he will get used to it soon, i think its great what you doing for him.

  3. Yes, he certainly is handsome!! He looks so much healthier and happier than he did when you first got him. Just goes to show what care and love can do! Think it is just terrific that you are trying to make his life so much better with the slipper. Do hope it works. Will just probably take some getting used to for him.

  4. Mika, we really hope this works out for you. We'd never noticed your amazing ear tufts before. The are catabulous. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  5. Carrie, I think you are so admirable doing so much to make sure Mika can get around easier with the slipper! Good luck to you! I hope everything turns out well! Love, hugs and purrs, Kathy

  6. Love the hair tufts in Mika's ears.
    What a handsome little fellow!

  7. i think everyone who comes to your site knows that everything you do is in the best interest of your furry babies.

    thank you for letting us all a peek into your lives and your amazing cats.

    you're doing a wonderful job!!
