eliphas, napping

News from the cats

Little Cat got his vaccinations and hardly put up a fight. Maybe because this time Snow provided a helping hand, and he's not been associating her with visits to the vet. Or he's getting mellow in his not-so-old age.

Big Cat got an X-Ray and blood tests, and came out halfway OK. His kidneys and liver are fine, but his hips show that he's getting old. So it's back to pain meds for him.

To take the blood, the vet had to shave part of Big Cat's front leg. He took it like a trooper, but now he looks very ragged and pitiable, because Big Cat has big fur that's dark-grey-to-black on top and snow white near the skin, and now he has some skinny white leg showing.
