It was time for Ashton’s wellness visit to the vet, and she got some good news, and some bad news.
Ashton: Any trip to the vet that interrupts my beauty sleep is bad news!
The Good News
Ashton has a very friendly relationship with food. Any and all food. So it wasn’t surprising that her previous vet visit identified that she needed to work on losing a little bit of weight.
This vet visit, her first to our all-cat vet, she weighed in right where she should be.
Ashton: Did you read that? I’m ideal, so we don’t need to be here. Let’s go!
Visiting an all-cat clinic made a big difference in her level of fear during the visit. She will always be a fearful cat, but it was nice to see her less frightened. She was even willing to sit out in the open when no one held her there. She did keep a tight hold on the edge of the table, just in case.
The Bad News
In addition to the great news about her weight loss, Ashton got some not-so-great news, too.
With a tooth needing removal, Ashton has go back to the vet again next week.
Ashton: Hey, you don’t make an ideal cat go back to the vet! That’s not right!
We’ll talk a little more about cat teeth soon, but for now, let’s give Ashton a little time to absorb this news.
Ashton: Are you sure there’s not another cat named Ashton here who needs dental work and there’s a mix-up? This can’t be happening…
