Hi my friends it has been awhile, so many things going on here at our house we don't get much time if any lately...

OK reason for coming here today Moms letting me tell you about my vet visit and check up. Of course as most of us don't like going to the vet I am no different. But I got to ride in my new carrier, on side it opens and folds out so I can see more and get more air. What a nice new carrier it is for our long ride over to our new home Mom wanted me to get used to it, I do like it especially after I saw my vet.

I lost almost 2 lbs, Mom was concerned, but thought it is because I am loosing my muscle mass not sure what that is or means. Dr. Kathy thought it might me my thyroid, I had to give more blood so they could check my thyroid and see how my kidneys are doing. Well I now have hyperthyroid along with CRF...boy is this ol lady starting to fall about, don't think so, I am doing well other wise, my kidney numbers are good right where they should be that is good news. I still have my heart murmur but it hasn't changed so no worry there, just have to have it checked once a year unless Mom notices any changes in me.

It was an expensive visit, but worth it Mom says and as always she is happy she has insurance on me...I am beginning to be an expensive kitty.

But wait it isn't over, I don't get to go home, no I don't I have to go with Mom to a paint store so she could get some paint samples they can take them over to our new house, they want to have someone paint inside with a better paint before we move over there. Then on to her dog clients house so she could walk the doggies. I got to go in and had to stay there while Mom went out to walk the doggies, one tried to sniff my carrier. Hiss hiss!!!!! then to the bank, Mom ran it and right back out! She parked right where she could see the car, she usually doesn't leave me in the car, but it was not busy and just a deposit.

Finally I got to go home, happy that I had the bigger carrier I could see out and feel the air, but more happy to be home. The rest of the day I was in my safe place in Moms closet.

Today Mom had her dr. appt. and on the way back before walking dogs and taking care of cats Mom wonderpurr Mom went to my vet and got my medication. I haven't got my pill yet Mom will give it to me this evening. I have to go back in on the 31st to give them more blood so they can see how my thyroid is doing, they may have to adjust my medication.

Moms says great just as we are getting ready to move and get a new vet we have to deal with this too, we just hope I will be OK after the next visit until Mom can get me to my new vet...

By the way Mom found one and our Vet here is from Arizona, called her vet friend and she told her that our new Vet is really good so that is one worry off of Moms mind...but she has to see for herself..

Well that is it from here, sorry it is long, but we want you to know how I am doing...Next week Mom and Dad go to Arizona to see our house for the first time, Mom is so excited, then sign all the will be ours! Time is flying by and soon we will be Arizona kitties...

wishing you all the best, purring and praying for those in need and know we do check in and read the diaries to see how our friends are doing. One day soon Mom will have more time to let us back on here and lets hope by then we all will know something about our beloved catster

Hi Xena,
Sorry that you had to go to the vet and leave blood there. Hopefully your thyroid levels will be OK. And why did your Mom not let you help pick out a pretty paint color for your room in the new house? And you didn't go into the bank to make a withdrawal? You do need some spending money on your long trip. And you had to wait in a dog's house? Not good.

Could you please give hugs and purrs to my sweet Zeke Bear and ask him to think of me Wednesday morning I think Mom is planning a trip for me to the vet. Something about my teeth being too dirty. Purring that your Mom gets everything done before the big move.
