I go to the V-E-T this weekend. He's going to tell me to loose weight. I know it! I'm a big kitty, always there with Sarge when he eats except I don't get sick at times. Things are pretty normal. I love getting pets when Daddy gets dressed and he has to keep me away from his clothes or else I'll put holes in them with my claws (another thing the V-E-T will have to do since I won't let Daddy trim them).
I still hate being picked up. Daddy tried to hold me last week and I mewed like a kitten and my ears went back in fear. Oh poor me! I wonder if I'm still a bit feral since I hate being held and I eat like it's going to be taken away from me. Lena's a stray too but she loves being held and is confident there will always be food for her.

Neither Ruffy or I enjoy being held, though I've come to love laps. We both have 'things' about food-not so much with cat food now, but with people food I've been known to reach out and smack it out of humans hands if I don't get my treat quick enough. Mommy thinks I was starved.
With time, you calm down, and relax. It takes time. For some of us, it takes more than others.
I don't like to be held either! Mommy picks me up usually once per day anyway to show me it's okay. I also don't like having my nails trimmed, but it has to be done because I get caught on things if they go untrimmed.
Good luck at the vet!!!
pepi...I will be nine this year and there's no toy, any amount of food or any amount of treats that will get me to let someone pick me up.... !!!
hope your vet appt goes well
