The last year has involved twelve visits to our veterinarian. For those of you that have pets, you know that one or two visits a year is usually all it takes to keep a pet healthy. And that is all we have had to do for our younger cat, Cocoa. But Calico and Beau are different stories.
Calico is hyperthyroid and has arthrytis. She has had bloodwork done five times this year to check her levels. She has more needle holes in her than a street punk. The hyperthyrroid has also given her a drinking problem.
Beau has smoker's cough... or so it sounds. We highly suspect that he is going out for smoke breaks while we are at work. The vet has done x-rays and complete blood work. Nothing. So he is now on steroids and we expect him to become a professional body builder at any time.
And still, with all their problems, we love them. At least I know I do. I'll have to ask Dave on a day that he has not had to steam clean the carpet.
