I didn't write about this last month 'cause it really is quite embarrassing. I was embarrassed enough writing about it when I was a year old & it happened....I had to have my anal glands expressed. Well, about 2 weeks before Christmas, I was caught scooting again and off to the vet I went. Again, anal glands.
So, why did I wait until today to write about this? well, I wasn't going to write about it at all, except that I've been scooting again...and you guessed it, off to the vet I went. In four weeks time, my glands were already pretty full. So, I got an exam too...not fun, but I was a good girl.
The vet is hoping that I may have colitis. We're starting off the easy way though. So they say. They took my blood and are checking that. I'm now taking (reluctantly) that icky Flagyl and I got new food. I guess it's higher in fiber and if this does the trick, we may all get to eat this type of food. The boys don't know that yet, I think I'll keep that a secret for a while.
Well that's my excitement for the day, hopefully for the year.
I'm exhausted! I think I've got all this vet stink off me, but I better wash some more. I need to take a nap.

You have my sympathy there, Maggie. I feel your pain. ((hugs and purrs))
thank you Ashley. I'm better now. Well, as long as I eat my food. I protest most days, but eat eventually.
