FotoFeb: Day 20

Check-up and vaccination day for Jeddah

This morning we took Jeddah to the vet for her check-up and shots.  It took us a few tries to get her in the carrier and she was not impressed with us at all - she meowed all the way to the vet and then was perfectly quiet and well-behaved once we got there!  I'd been a bit concerned about an intermittent limp she's developed recently so the vet checked that while we were there.  She said Jeddah's muscle tone and weight are both fine, her teeth are good, and she seems generally healthy, which was good.  With the limp, she said one of her kneecaps is a bit loose and probably has been her whole life, which probably contributed to arthritis setting in a bit earlier than you'd expect (she's nearly 7).  So at least the limp is just arthritis and nothing else.  She said because everything else is good, we should just make sure Jeddah doesn't have to jump very high, so we put a stepladder next to the washing machine to make it easier for her to get up to her food (food can't go on the floor or Phoebe would eat it!).  All in all a fairly routine visit, which is always a relief.
