Thankful Thursday

Mommy ordered this painting by Quint and it arrived a few days ago. It is one of Quint's Autumn pieces. Isn't it beautiful?
Whisky : Remember my mobility troubles due to my osteoarthritis? Mommy got impatient waiting for someone who volunteered to make the booties (it's been almost 2 months now) so she went and bought herself a sewing machine! And 218 prototypes later, she finally made a set that fit properly and does the job! She says it is still work in progress but I wanted to show them to you this Thankful Thursday!
Whisky : The booties give me such great traction and I can now run REALLY fast! Can you see how impressed Tutu is? BOL!
Whisky : I can turn quickly without slipping
Whisky : And when I stand, I'm STEADY! No more slipping or sliding. Woo hoo!
Whisky : Mommy made me lay down so I could show you how quickly and easily I'm able to get up. Ready?
Whisky : One strong push...
Whisky : And I'm UP! That took all of 1 second. Thank you, Mommy!
Mommy here : I am letting Whisky test out these booties to see if any further adjustments are necessary before using the better (and much more expensive) anti-slip material.

A special THANK YOU to Annette S for her guidance. :)

That's a beautiful painting by Quint. He did a great job using white space on that one.

The booties look adorable, and seem to work great. Whisky looks happy to be able to turn and stand easily!

ANGEL ABBY said...

Whisppy your Mom is so talented. IF our Mom bought a sewing machine I don't think she would know what to do with it. What a lovely painting by Quint.

RedSetter said...

What a star your Mummy is, and how kind to be looking after your poor sore joints. I can sympathise as I have a very painful knee and your little booties look like they are making life enjoyable for you again. The painting is absolutely lovely but I think your cute fluffiness is my favourite.

Those are just great, Whisppy. Mom says she may need to do something like that for Phantom once our hardwood floors are redone. He already slips a lot.

Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

Kitties Blue said...

Kudos to your mommy for her perseverance in developing something herself. Maybe she can market them.
