Life of a former foster kitten

Ahhh the VET

Daddy took a day off work today to relax. He slept a little later than usual which was nice. I got some extra attention. He put some canned food on a plate for me and Lena but I didn't see it in time. Then he went down to get the other carrier. That can mean only one thing! I didn't know we were going until Lena took off. She's smart and if she's running, so am I. Daddy had to chase us up and down the house. He caught Lena first after chasing us out from under his bed. I gave him a tougher run, hiding in the basement three times and darting past him when he thought he had me trapped in the spare room! Eventually I got tired and hid under his computer desk. He didn't see me for a few minutes as he went back upstairs and took a rest. But he found me and dragged me out. We were late at the vet by five minutes. I made Daddy chase me for so long he was sweating and didn't need his coat despite it being cold outside.

The good news is that I'm in good health. I lost an ounce to 16# 8oz. The vet tech laughed as I tried to hide under the blanket. I got felt up and down. I didn't like it and squirmed a bit. During the break between the vet tech and doctor, I asked Daddy if I could get back in my carrier. It felt like the safest thing at the time.

The bad news is that I have a yeast infection in my both my ears. It's not as bad as Lena's but she has just one good ear. I have to get medicine in it twice a day for two weeks!! We're not sure how both of us got it since it's hard to transmit and why I have it in two ears while Lena just has it in one.

I was quiet on the way home too. Daddy brought me inside first and I was jumping against the top of the carrier hoping I could open it and get out. I've settled down now and find a nice spot for a nap. Thank catness this only happens once a year.

Always good to get a good vet report. Sorry about the yeast infection, though. I get that off and on, too, though the other cats don't. The medicine isn't so bad. Be sure that Daddy massages your ears for a few seconds after putting the medicine in. It feels soooooo good.
