My Trip to the Vet

I had to go for a ride in the car today - to see Dr B our vet. This was not a fun thing to do, believe me. First I get put into a kennel for the ride. I hate going in that thing - probably cause it smells like dog no matter if there are nice, clean towels in there and mommy washed it all out for me. Second, it's not real roomy and third there's the car ride. Daddy came with me and that stupid kennel rode in his lap. And he scratched my ears through the door too. I was pretty good though, and didn't make too much of a ruckus. The reason I had to go was because my back leg has been giving me some trouble. I didn't want to put weight on it and I howled when mommy tried to get me to stand on it. So off to the vet when it didn't seem to be getting very much better. I was very good and didn't bite Dr B this time though and I had to have Xrays and get a rabies shot too. He says it's an old injury or just wear and tear cause I am kind of a queen sized kitty. My pelvic bones are not quite like they are supposed to be and my knee has arthritis in it. So it hurts sometimes - probably if I jump around too much. He says that I don't need surgery - yet. And that there really isn't any medicine for it. I am down to 14 lbs (from 18 lbs) so that is a really good thing, but he thinks I should come down another 2lbs! He thinks that my weight has just been hard on my joints. That is good and bad news I guess. I don't eat much, but I don't do much either. After all I am going to be 10 years old this summer. Not exactly a kitten anymore. So that was my very exciting day. Time for another nap!
