Skittles and I had our turn at the vet today for our annual exam and shots. This is the first time I have met the new Doctor. He is nice and he pets us and talks to us before he starts poking and prodding. And I think someone stole his thermometer; cause neither of us had to see it, or not see it, as the case may be!
Anyway, I am getting older and he took a good hard look at the teeth I have left and was a little concerned. They are starting to get alot of plaque. He doesn't want to pull teeth, because I don't have many left, plus the risk of being older and going under anesthesia. He told Mom to keep an eye on me and my mouth. (Don't have to tell her; she can be as bad as the doctor, looking in my mouth, my ears, my nose, my litter box!)
Mom, in fact, asked him about my eyes. It seems my pupils are always very dialated. I seem to see okay; but I don't really go very far and anywhere unfamiliar either. I am not a jumper so she has never seen me miss a leap to furniture. He got out his lights and took a look. He seems to think that I am developing cataracts. (Huh, me and grandma are starting to have more and more in common!) He let Mom take a look and see the cloudy film. He said just to keep an eye on me and watch for tearing or discharge and stuff like that.
Other than that, I feel fine. I eat, soft and crunchy food, drink as much water as I always have, use my box and make my daily deposits, I purr, I snarl at the little bouncy ones, I get my brushes, mooch treats, have nip parties....life as a senior isn't too bad except for all the trips to the doctor (again, kind of like grandma!)
Purrs to all,
