Weighty Issues

Everyone has been sufficiently traumatized by their trip to the vet.

Lucy weighed in at 26 pounds. Not bad. She's not overweight or even heavy. I attribute some of that to the jog she went on last night while we ran along behind her in the golf cart. (The golf cart is perfect for walking the dog...she can run her little heart out and not have to wait for me to catch up. - Laziness personified.)

Oliver weighed in at 10.5 pounds. A lot of that is hair since he's waaaay overdue for a grooming appointment. He'll probably lose a pound on Thursday. He had to get pulled out of the carrier twice because the vet forgot to weigh him. He was not amused! He stuck all four feet out and blocked himself in. Finally the vet grabbed his back legs and pulled him right out. Piece of cake!

Hokie weighed in at 11.7 pounds. Again, he's not overweight, just long and lean. He was also very unhappy to have to go to the vet.

Socks, however, weighed in at 15.9 pounds. Holy moley! He's not going to like it, but there is a diet in his future. When the vet pulled him out of the carrier I swear he had shed another cat. I've never seen so much fur and I live with a Persian cat! It was unreal.
