Apparently there was nothing to be concerned about [Apr. 3rd, 2006|11:50 am]
[emotional state |chipperchipper]

My cat is an ANGEL. I didn't even remember that this cat owned claws.

It took him 3 minutes to get out of the carrier at the vet. The car ride was the most traumatic part of the ordeal, or at least the part where he whined the most. I had more problems with the rabies shot than he did. (The vet didn't make me look, thank god)

He's in relatively good health. I was worried about the weight, but since I'm switching him to a diet that's more wet-food based (after I move, I can't deal with doing that NOW) that won't be an issue. (Apparently, cats actually tend to loose weight when you switch them to wet food 'cause there are less fillers, sugars, and perservatives than in dry food. Also, I'll be switching his brand of dry food again, but not until I move.) The only issue was some dental stuff, which is getting taken care of next Tuesday. Then I get to start brushing his teeth!

Monster was so well behaved that the vet said that if I decided I couldn't handle him that he would take him. Personally.

Man, I am so relieved!

We feed our cats Purina One Healthy Weight Management Formula. It used to be the healthy-urinary-tract type -- with cats, the males are the ones that have UTI problems -- but Thanatos was getting a little chunky, so the vet said to switch to this, and maybe he wouldn't need to go on prescription cat food. We're free-feeding, so they just eat whenever they're hungry. Thanatos hasn't gained any more weight for the year or so that we've been feeding this to him and Hypnos.
