It was inevitable, I guess. Mom saw me at my ear last week. She cleaned it, and I hated it, but alas, she noticed something that I guess she's right about-
My mouth's been bothering me, and I've not been feeling too good the past couple weeks. Oh, I'm still eating, but gingerly, and mom noticed that I seem to be not myself at all. Between the upchucking food I've always eaten (FF classic chicken), and my mouth and ear issues, ouchies.
I've been quieter, and then last week I went after Natalie....and that was it for mom. She said 'he's getting a vet appointment.'.
I know she's been worried. See, my cousin Blackie had an undiagnosed tumor in his mouth for quite some time. I still have that black spot on my nose that comes and goes, though the vet biopsy last year said benign, which is good.
We are seeing a new vet tomorrow-the one that my brofur Smokieboo saw. Mom likes him. He is a little scary looking and rather abrupt. He is skinny, baldish, and Polish. he looks like he was in a concentration camp. He always says when she first comes in 'tell me what is going on' before he even lets mom or dad take us out. Then he and his assistant have us taken our and very carefully look us over. Smokie boo has some news about himself-but I'll let him tell that!
Mom is trying us out on raw. She's going to try and switch us over at least partially. I seem to be accepting it a bit, if it's warmed in the microwave with a little warm water. (defeats the purpose? but it's nice and warm and pleasant).
My fur has grown back to some degree, but still not the lush coat I had. Mom said it doesn't matter, its cooler for summer, and I'm still so handsome.
I'm going to nap some more now. Know I love you all,

I hope your vet visit goes well. I also have been dealing with something they cannot figure out, so I understand your frustration. Hopefully maybe it is just a sore tooth, that it is an easy fix. You guys have been in our thoughts. purrs for your vet visit
