madbaker: (Galen)
We took the cat in for his annual vet visit yesterday. We blindsided him with the carrier, so it was not too difficult to get him in. (The carrier had been out for a couple days and ignored. Galen was sleeping under the bedcovers until we ruthlessly excavated him and shoved him into the carrier; he didn't have enough time to wake up and react.)

Unfortunately, he's lost weight again. Last year he was 8.75 pounds, which is still way too low - Galen should be around 10 to 11 pounds comfortably. This time he weighed 8.25. So, more emphasis on kitten food. The problem is that he is a grazer and will only eat a certain amount. If he throws up, there go the calories for that day. The massive puke-fest that was our five-day absence for Twelfth Night did him no favors.

It's too bad that he doesn't react that much to catnip, and that it doesn't give him the munchies.

Also unfortunately, Galen expressed his displeasure with the vet visit by pooping in his carrier on the way home. This is the second time in a row he's done that. Last time we had to throw the whole thing out because it was so soiled. This time we just had to clean the liner. Cat, we don't like you having to go to the vet either. This reaction just makes all of us unhappier.
