When we arrived at the Vet, we had to wait a few minutes. Two adorable black Pug puppies, brother and sister, were scampering around the waiting room while their owner made an appointment for them. The puppies kept running up to the cat carrier and trying to stick their little noses through the holes. They were very interested in Bob. Bob didn't get upset. He just watched them quietly. The puppies had leashes on and one of them kept picking his up in his mouth and running to the other end of the room as if he was taking himself for a walk!
In the exam room, Bob was scared. He kept trying to jump off the exam table and, when he was finally allowed to get on the floor, he went right to the door and stood there just waiting for someone to open it. (That's what he does here when he wants to leave...we usually open the door for him!) Bob weighs 11.9 lbs ( he looks bigger!). Bobs breathing issues, hiccups snoring and stuffed nose are all being caused by a polyp in his throat area. The Vet said that Bob isn't in pain but it's causing him some discomfort. So we left Bob at the Vet today. She did an in-office procedure today and removed the polyp from Bob's throat. It may grow back but hopefully it won't. Bob also got neutered today, (our neighbors told us he was neutered but, apparently this wasn't the case!) had his ears cleaned and was de-fleaed! No wonder cats don't like going to the Vet! lol
The Vet called a little while ago to tell us that Bob's procedures went well and he was resting comfortably. Sam is picking Bob up this evening and bringing him back here. We'll see if he still like's us and trusts us! LOL
In the first picture below, you can see that Bob has his head in a large catnip container. The second picture is the aftermath of ingesting a lot of catnip!
