Well Hunter made it out alive. It was a bit of a struggle getting him in the carrier. Anyway Hunter now weighs 10 pounds. The vet said that was ideal for him. Said he has muscles like an athlete. Everything looked good besides his teeth. Hunter needs a dental cleaning. He's only 3!! The vet said that he probably has weak enamel and that he'll need more frequent cleanings. Great. That's $500 I have to find before the summer. I'm a little nervous about him going under. But I'm not going to worry about that now. I have to focus on finding the money for it.
The vet kept on petting him. He has no heart issues. Eyes, ears, nose all look good. The vet mentioned Hunters fur, how it feels like a rabbits fur. I told him that I can't brush him because Hunter won't really let me. I also mentioned how I think Hunter is part Turkish Van. The vet said that he is either part Turkish Van or Turkish Angora because of his coat. I knew it!!
Anyway, Hunter has a clean bill of health!

That is great news, we always like to hear our friends are in good health...
Mom always worries about being under too..but we have a vet that uses human grade anesthesia and lots of vets don't...we recover so much faster and are not so dopy. Kitties dental cleaning are so very expensive, too bad they are because more kitties would get their teeth cleaned if it wasn't and Mom wishes pet insurance would cover dental cleanings...
Just happy all went well for you Hunter!
Glad that vet visit went ok.
