Well, Mommy took me to vet today, and she had to leave me there because they didn't have any appointments open when she called.
They did the usual round of terrible things to me. Then they decided they needed to call Mommy to get her permission to take a chest x-ray. They wanted to sedate me so I would hold still. Mommy reluctantly gave her permission for the sedation.
The last time I was sedated (by a no-good vet we don't see anymore) I did not come out of it for days. Daddy was so afraid I would die that he insisted he and Mommy get a new cat right away. That is how Kiki joined our family.
But the vet assured Mommy I would only get a little sedatation via gas, not general anesthesia.
Later they called Mommy and said I was ready to go home. They figured out a way to get the x-ray without sedating me, and that is why Mommy loves these cat doctors.
The x-ray was to check my heart, and my heart is good. I tried to tell them I had a good heart, but they would not listen and took their pictures of it anyway.
So they still do not know for sure why I cough. My heart murmur is still grade 3. My pee-pee had no crystals. The doctor will call tomorrow with my blood work and other pee-pee tests.
Mommy had a surprise when she picked me up. It was Daddy! He carried me and put me in the car. When we were all in the car, he said, "Over five-hundred dollars!!! Really??? We could just buy a bunch of new cats for all that money!!!" Mommy told him to not say such things in front of me, but I knew he was mostly joking. Mostly.
