Pepina's Vet Visit

Last Monday Pepina went in for her annual visit to the vet. I was very curious to hear what he said about her. She is 16 months old, so she is pretty much full grown now. He said that she has a very healthy coat, her teeth are in good shape, her kidneys seem fine and her eyes and nose all look great too.

He said that we are obviously taking very good care of her. That made me feel so good. We try to take the best care of her that we can, and it seems to be working out. Okay, we can even go so far as to say that we spoil her.

She weighs 12 lbs. 6 oz. and he said that her weight is good, but he said that she is about at the top of the chart on weight and to not let her gain much more. I told him that she probably did weigh a little more than that, but she has lost a little because of how she and Marina chase each other. They can run through here and you would think that we had a herd of buffalo! They will bounce off the cold air register occasionally when they are going so fast that they can't negotiate the turn in the hall. It's hysterical.

I think the world of our vet. He talks to our girls like they are the most special cats in the world. He makes us feel like we are perfect "parents" to them. He always comments on how beautiful they look too. I don't care if he does it for every patient he has or not, but he sure makes us feel good about what we're doing for Pepina and Marina.
"P" got two shots and her leukemia "blast" and she was pretty much out of it for the rest of the day. That's totally typical, so it wasn't anything to worry about. Marina just couldn't understand why "P" didn't want to play, and she kept trying to bother her. We tried to keep "MiMi" away from "P" but it didn't always work.

Anyway, we have two very healthy cats, and we're happy about that!
