Little Gin Gin

Isn't so little anymore. I had to take her to the vet the other day and she weighs in at almost 12 pounds. I was surprised it wasn't more because she seems so much bigger and feels a lot heavier than Woofy. And the reason I had to take her to the vet? This is funny. Because my hubby was worried she had a tumor. She has this big sack that hangs from her belly and sways back and forth when she walks. I told him I'll take her in but that they're probably going to charge me $32 just to tell me she's fat.

That was exactly what I told the girls at the counter after we walked in, too. They laughed and one said, let me take her to the back and if she's fat we won't charge you. Wasn't that nice of her? So I sat and waited and when she came out with Gin Gin she laughed and said, "yup, she's fat!" Then explained that when some female cats are spayed they get a fat sack that kind of hangs there. She said some males can get it, too, which explains Woofy's little one.

As promised they didn't charge me and hubby was relieved.

On a different note, I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day yesterday!

Cats are entertaining little characters, aren't they? We really enjoy our two. How many do you have Sarita?
