Getting reacquainted with her carrier. She actually had a few naps in it yesterday. I'm still looking for the perfect carrier. Something like this or this, that has an extendable handle with wheels. Airline approved. Preferably round or oval shaped. The colour doesn't matter as much, of course it must be a great price or on sale and be in stock.

I really don't like this carrier but it does the job & yes she is inside.

In the exam room. The 'dog' room this time, the 'cat' room was occupied by a dog.

The scared bird

The bird (at least I think so, I have no idea about the lifespan of a bird) she almost killed last year. She was on my shoulder and jumped for all she was worth. I think she thinks she's a panther in an Indian jungle.

The bird looked scared to death

My baby is 11 pounds. Still chunky, I'm not impressed. But at least the vet tech this year didn't call her chunky monkey. I'm at the beginning of trying to get her to eat wet food (for the 10th or 11th time) so I have to reduce her wet food to 1 tbsp per meal and dry to 1/8 cup per meal. Gradually so it doesn't affect her liver or was it kidneys? I forget to be honest, I've had a long day.

It's confirmed, she has fleas. Her first case in 2.5 years. I'm a little grossed out to be honest. A mild case but the suckers are there.

Over all a good visit, I spent a long time talking with the vet tech and the doctor. About an hour this time. Her first visit in a long time, where she didn't try to terminate herself. Her heart & lungs sound good. Ears are clear. Joints & teeth are healthy. Aside from the damn fleas and reducing her food, I'm happy that she healthy.

After the visit.

At home, back in her carrier but not pleased with me
