6 Week Check-Up


We have not been blogging much lately. Not since Mom and Dad got home from their vacation. Oh, Mom's been blogging, but just between you and me, she hasn't even had time to play with her strings and sheep furs lately.

Today however, I get priority blogging, because today was my 6 week check-up since finishing my chemotherapy.

Mom has been happy because I've been talkative, hungry, playful, and downright ornery at times. Just like my old self she says. She just hoped Dr. C would be happy too.

And he was. He was happy with my weight (up to 14 pounds 12 ounces), he was happy with my energy and activity level, and he was especially happy that he didn't find any lumps or swollen areas in any of my lymph nodes.

I however, was not happy. I grumped and growled and hissed the entire time because he massaged deeply to feel for those nonexistent lumps.

The good news is that I don't have to go back for another 60 days. I don't think I should have to go back at all. But Mom says that's the time Catzee and I have to go in for our annual check-ups anyway. Maybe she'll change her mind by then.

I'm so glad to hear that you are doing so well.

Oh well done Rascal! You're a survivor cat! Best thing about cats is having those nine lives, so if one looks like it's up there's always another to go at.. well, at least till you get to 9 like my Oscar did.

BTW Oscar would have said: it's good to hiss at vets a bit, make sure they know their place and respect your nine lives, plus it's good to growl and wail and spit. It's best way of making sure you get to go home again and of course when everyone gets scared that means they have to call Mom to help, so then that guarentees you can go home;)

Dear Rascal,
Hi! I'm a cat in my new home with 2 human minions. My Lady human, Ms. C (I think she posted a comment here as C.B.) has been reading and enjoying your blog for a long time.

She says I need to read your blog so I can learn about how cats should behave! I don't know what she means.
