I went to see Ben Vet today for a check-up cos I was long overdue one! Meowmie went to the Vet Place last week to get my foods and got a gentle reminder from Caroline Vet to book me in for an appointment...so off we went this morning. I had a new chauffeur today, he was a very chatty Indian Cockney and thought I was beautiful...although he did ask what I was! He though I looked like a weasel or a stoat!
When I arrived the Irish Dancing Girl on reception said she was relieved to see me cos she hadn't seen me for sometime and was concerned that 'something had happened'! Ben Vet then came to get me and took me into his room for my consultation. He told Meowmie that he was considering writing about me for one of his study papers but he had a restriction of only 1500 words...and he said I was far too complicated to sum up in 1500 words! He said his papers basically follow a simple format something like...X had this, we treated X like that and X lived/passed away. I like being complicated!
Ben Vet then listened to my heart and checked all my vitals and I have put on weight! A lymphoma kitty putting on weight is a GREAT thing indeed cos conversely weight loss is a very bad thing indeed, it is usually one of the Bad Signs to watch out for. I now weigh...3.89kg (8.6lbs)! That is the heaviest I have been since I got diagnosed in December 06. Ben Vet's only concern was the amount of poo blocking me up....so guess what?...I had The Most Beautiful Siamese Cat In The World done today! Ben Vet and Meowmie discussed whether the poo blocking me up was skewing my weight, but then they realised that I am always blocked up with poo...so they decided not to take into consideration the Poo Factor. Ben Vet chuckled and said he will make a note about Poo Factors and estimated that I constantly have a Poo Factor of 2. I finks he was just joking around!
Ben Vet then clipped my claws and gave me some more steroids to take home and off we went. Meowmie went to the ATM to get some cash but it was broken so we had to go home on the BUS!!! It was a red london bus, like the ones the tourists like. Here is me on the bus in my Prisoner Transport Unit:
Note, the special lining in my PTU in case I 'exploded' after having The Most Beautiful Siamese Cat In The World done to me! I was a GOOD GIRL though cos I waited til I got home and then I RAN LIKE THE WIND to my tray and did some emptying. I then decided to sick-up in the lounge too, just for good measure. I then refilled myself up again with foods! So, all-in-all, a good day! :)
I'll be around later to catch up and say hello to you all! x
