Vet visit

Home again after the trip to the V-E-T! He is very nice and didn't force anyone to submit to anything they didn't want!!

  • Audace was a complete terror -- totally uncooperative! He got his shots and that's about it. I wanted a weight on him, but he wouldn't be still!
  • Ruse was a love; he just sat there and let the doctor examine him and weigh him before giving him his shots.
  • Grace was so placid, she was purring! The doctor couldn't hear her heartbeat or breathing because all he heard was purring!
  • Ruse is a bit over 12# and Grace is 16# -- so I'll guess that Audace is about 16#, too. They eat quite well, although Grace and Audace need more exercise, IMHO!

The doctor explained that V-E-Ts are now using a different kind of rabies vaccine because the previous type (the 3-year type) was causing cancer in some cats. He also explained that they need to be on some kind of med for fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes -- mostly for the mosquitoes since they are indoor-only cats and sometimes a mosquito makes it into the house. It's the mosquito that carries whatever causes heartworms in cats. I guess I'll have to look into one of those because there are times when a mosquito does get into my house, the dratted things.

All three were calmer and snoozier than usual last night. What a blessing! I was already in a snit because my Internet and television signals are completely down. I'm sure it has something to do with the switch from Time Warner Cable to Comcast that's being rammed down our throats. I'm thinking about switching to AT&T for phones and Internet and to DirecTV for television and DVR. We'll see. (I'm at Anne's right now, mooching off their wireless signal!!)
