They were both good little furkids. Pumpkin cried a little bit on the way in, but was good for Dr Mary.   Pumpkin is perfectly healthy.  Her eyes have been watery a bit lately so she got some meds for them as they were a bit red.  Hopefully it will clear them up.  She's 9 1/2 pounds.  Dr Mary said she's about 1/2 pound overweight, but we aren't worrying about it.  Trouble had blood work done.  For all that he has going on it looks pretty good.  One of his kidney tests was a little high and his pancreas test was a bit high too.  Dr Mary said it's all diabetes related.  I have some stuff to sprinkle on his food the help his pancreas work better. She said he has a greasy coat and that may help that. He lost a little bit of weight but is eating well, just not quite as much.  It's good because he has been overweight for most of his life.He has scar tissue in his lungs from his asthma, but she said he's compensating for it and there isn't anything that I can do to but what I'm doing.  I also got a free bottle of insulin for Trouble.  She said a lady came in and donated several bottles so Dr Mary gave me one. 

Dr Mary said it was nice to see one of my kitties was healthy anyway.  lol Sammy will go in next trip for his checkup.  He's healthy now too.

I happy how well they are doing especially Trouble since he's going to be 15 this year and all his health problems.

Wouldn't that be wonderful to have to lose only 1/2 pound.  lol

Yes I always worry when I take Trouble in for blood work because of all of his health problems.  I'm surprised that he is doing so well with having diabetes and asthma for so many years.

I knew Pumpkin was healthy.  lol

I'll give them kisses for you when they wake up.

I'm so glad to hear that Trouble's appt was pretty good for all his problems.  That was nice of that lady to donate some insulin bottles and was good of Mary to give you one.

Yay for Pumpkin being so healthy.

Kisses to them both.
