VET VISIT

I had to go to the vet yesterday for two shots! Bummer!! A rabies shot and a distemper shot which each are good for three years. Good! I'm glad don't have to go through that each year!

I weigh 17.2 lbs. I lost a tad and the vet said I was a little chubby and it would be good if I lost 2 lbs. She thinks 15 lbs would be a great weight for me. I don't think so because I weighed 17.7 lbs a few years ago and I was told I was good at that weight and wasn't chubby, just big boned. Of course, my catmom was a Maine Coon. I can't help it if my genes make me big!!!! I call this a different opinion from a different vet. I feel great at 17.2 lbs!!!

Lastly, I'm one of the kitties who gave Mommy the most purrs during her bout with the nasty intestinal flu. I'm glad she's doing better now. I don't want our Mommy sick or in the hospital and then strangers would have to come here to help feed me and the rest of the gang.

Well, I'll be on my way. I think Joss, Landy and Sampy may have something to say today too. It's been quite a while since any of us wrote in our diaries.

Have a pawsome day, my friends,

Merl

I get different advice from different vets on my weight, too, Merlin. I'm 17 pounds, and Mom expects me to top out at 18. (Most of my mature male relatives are 18-22 pounds.) Like Maine Coons, we Norwegian Forest Cats can get quite large.

One of my vets says I'm all muscle and fine at my weight, but the other one says I should be 16 pounds. Mom thinks the first one is right.
