Oakley and Tiger are home from the vet

They weren't very happy to go and both of them cried most of the way in.  They were pretty good for Dr Mary.  Oakley was so scared, but good while Dr Mary examined her.  She is holding her weight at 7 pounds.  Her teeth are good so she doesn't need a cleaning.

Tiger was good too.  He's 8 1/2 pounds.  He lost a few ounces, but nothing to worry about.  Dr Mary did scrape a little tartar off a couple of his back teeth and he had blood work done. The blood they ran there was perfect.  They have to send it out for the thyroid test, so I may hear how it is tomorrow.  He also got some medicine for his ears because they are always bothering him.  Dr Mary didn't see anything wrong, but she can only see so far.  Hopefully the medicine will work to take care of whatever is going on. 

Neither of them said a word on the way home and I had to stop and get gas.  They were both glad to get home.  I gave them some kisses and treats which they loved.  They are both alseep now.  I guess they are pooped out now.

I'm so glad my little senior kitties are doing great, thank goodness. They must have good genetics.

I'm sure that genetics have a lot to do with it.  They have each only had to be on antibiotics once in their lives. 

It's so nice to be able to take healthy furkids to the vet.

I'll pass on your kisses from you and your furpack.

Everyone let me sleep and I slept in a bit this morning.

I really don't do anything different with them as any of you do I'm sure.  I do try to keep an eye on them if they act different.  I'm so glad that Tiger's kidneys are great.  I was a bit worried about that because he was drinking more water than usual. It must have been the hot, dry weather we have been having.  I'm glad that he is a good water drinker.

It was nice to be able to take a healthy furkid to the vet for once.

I'll deliver your kisses to them from Misty, Misha and you.
