Default Cinders visits TED

I finally managed to get Cinders to TED for her checkup. She was supposed
to go a couple of weeks ago, but is fairly adept at reading my body
language and managed to evade me up until now. The vet said that she was
in good condition for a cat of about 12 years old (I am not her original
slave, and don't know her exact age). Her weight has gone down somewhat
from her last visit, a year ago. Last visit, she weighed 7 pounds six
ounces; this visit, she weighed 6 pounds 12 ounces. She got her rabies
inoculation, and a general examination, and I am supposed to bring her
back in 6 months for other inoculations.

I'm glad she seems to be doing well. Did the exam include a blood test?
Weight loss was Lindy's first (and only) symptom of a thyroid problem. She
is on medication for it, and gained back the lost weight.

If you don't have a sense of humor you probably don't have any sense at all.

Keep an eye on that weight loss. Maybe get a baby scale. She is TINY!

The baby scale is a good suggestion. I hadn't thought of that; a
standard bathroom scale doesn't have the resolution to do much good for a
cat that small. I have dry kibble out for her all of the time; I have
tried giving her moist food, but she apparently doesn't recognize it as
something to eat. I suspect that she may have been the runt of her
litter.

She has blood tests scheduled for her next visit, in six months.

I usually weigh Laku by taking him in my arms and weighing both of us
and then just myself and calcucating the difference. I have a normal
digital scale.
