My Saturday Vet Visit Report

Happy Monday and Happy Presidents Day. We know a lot of your humans got to stay home today to mark the holiday.  Our local schools were closed today, but we aren't sure if it was because of the snow we got yesterday or if it was a scheduled holiday. The university where mom works went on a two hour delayed schedule so she didn't have to be at work until 10:00 a.m.  Mom said that was a good thing since she stayed up to watch The Walking Dead and The Talking Dead.

Anyway, I had a follow up visit with my vet on Saturday morning regarding that ulcer on my upper lip. After a good look at it, my vet said as long as it wasn't getting any worse mom should just keep an eye on it. Not to be gross, but it isn't sore or oozing anything nasty. He could give me a mega-dose of steroids, but he said that isn't good for kitties and could cause more problems than it would solve. So for now I will keep taking the predisone every other day like I've been doing. If the ulcer appears to be getting worse I'm suppose to start taking it everyday. I've also gained back those 2 ounces that I had lost, putting my weight at 8.3 pounds.

I also had to get my shots while I was there. Mom knew I was due for the one that covers a whole bunch of stuff, but she didn't know my rabies vaccine was due. I also had my front and back claws trimmed. I wasn't happy about that one bit and I let my vet know about it. I growled and hissed with every clip!

We had a lot of lap snuggle time with mom over the weekend. It was cold and sunny on Saturday. Yesterday it was cold and snowing. That was definitely a good day for snuggles.

Welcome to another week! Let's hope it is a good one.
