Thursday Trips

Boxes are fun! When mom brought out this box, I thought we were going to play and play! Momma and I stuffed our paws in an out of the play holes...until in one swift move, I was dumped out of the box, and Bennette was swooped in to the box and the lid was closed! Just like that!
Mom told me that Bennette and Madison had to go to the vet. Bennette because she needs to get started on her shots and Madison because he's still having some issues. Mom took pictures of their visit. Bennette weighs 7 pounds. The vet that saw her today said she is probably 6-8 years old, not 3-4 like the other vet. Of course Bennette's not talking, so we are deciding on calling her 6 years old. We really have no idea. We're expecting she won't feel so good over the next day or so while she sleeps off getting all those shots.
Madison's exam was fine, but he's been losing weight and has diarrhea. He had his *senior* blood work done. We'll be teasing him about *senior* status all week. We'll know more tomorrow. He wanted to hide in his carrier and make himself small. How do you make an almost 13 pound cat small? He used to weigh 16 pounds...that's why we're worried.


We're hoping he's OK. We've been through too much this year.

We are purring for Madison. We don't blame him for trying to hide, after going to the v-e-t. It looks like Benette was very good while she was there.

Hi Cory and the gang! We are purring for Madison and hope his blood work turns out ok. Cal will be 10 tomorrow and he too has lost weight, his blood work came back fine so we are scratching our heads on that one. Otherwise he is fine. We give Cal a little extra stinky goodness to try to get his weight up a tad.

I hope the blood work is okay too. When I first saw the box I thought how fun but then... well you know... Sigh.

I hope all is well with Madison and his bloods come back good.

I'll purr extra hard that Madison is ok.

Bennette, you hide your age well! Glad you check-up went well!

Praying that everything checks out "ok" for Madison and that his tummy troubles go away soon! *purrs*
