Celebrating Rusty’s 10th Birthday At The Vet

 

Rusty’s birthday was yesterday – yeah, I know – he chose a very auspicious day to be born.  But, I wanted to mark his 10th birthday with something special.

What better way than to take him to the vet and assure his Mom that he was healthy?  I knew it anyway, but, just wanted to do the “right” thing.

Dr. Love (that’s her real name) let me listen to his heart through her stethoscope.  It was loud and strong.  She was very pleased.  And so was his Mom!  Dr. Love also said he appears to be a younger cat than one 10 years old.  He has good genes.  I wonder where he gets that from?

We got some so-so news:  He has to have his teeth cleaned.  So, it’s going to happen next Tuesday, Sept. 15th, which happens to be my daughter’s birthday!  Boy, Rusty should feel good about celebrating her birthday, too, at the vet!

Well, maybe not.  😦
