My Kidz' First Vet Visit Today!

I had completely forgotten about this appointment! So, when Mama came outside and started stuffing my kidz into the carrier...one after the other...I got a little upset.
Befur I knew it, I was stuffed into that thing too, and off we drove...

Blondie was the one, who kept pawing the little metal door. "I want out!" but Mama just explained the whole plan to her. Or so she pretended.

At the vet, we had to wait quite a while and my kidz took furever to calm down and nap. We got to look at the other furbies in the waiting room, which was interesting.

When we were carried into the examination room, I was not a happy camper. Last time the vet poked me with that mean needle. ME NOT LIKEY! Today I will not need any of that, I was told.

My kidz actually seemed to have a good time. Since they are still hard to tell apawt (for hoomin eyes), the vet would take one, examine it and then set it on the floor to take the next one out of the carrier. This way, he could be sure that he would not check one twice or miss one.

Bitsy, Mambo and Samba have a hernia from their umbilical cord. That is nothing big and won't be a problem unless one of the girls became pregnant later in life. I don't think Mama will plan for more kitty invasions, so I know she will have that taken care of when my girls get spayed.

Mambo has a heart murmur. THAT is not good. So young and already a heart problem. He was born with it, we guess. This could shorten his life and I am very worried fur my only boy. Mama is wondering now, if this is something genetic in the boys, since Bungee, my brofur, died so suddenly when he was only 3 1/2 months old. I hope my little boy will live a long life!

In general, my kidz got a good repawt. They were certainly all over the exam room! Ha, you should have seen them zip around on the floor and paw at everything. So cute.
Blondie latched on to the vet's shirt and gave him a hard time, when he tried to pry him off his chest...

I am sooo happy that my kidz are very active and playful. If it wasn't fur Mambo's heart problem, I would say they received a clean bill of health. They certainly look pawfect to me!
Purring with pride...

So glad everything is okay. I know Mambo has a heart problem, but hopefully with good vet care and the love and care and attention you will show Mambo, Mambo will live a long life. Just take it a day at a time!

Hugz and purrs, Sassy

Purrs for Mambo. Hope his heart murmur goes away. Our brofur Zeeke had a heart murmur when he was a baby, but they say they don't hear one now.
Glad everyone had a good checkup. Have a great day


Love, Kibbles, Francis, & Yoda
