To the VET I go.


                             
Tanaka went to the vet today for his annual check-up. I am glad to report that he has an all clear. We did a blood test for the usual check on his kidneys and liver. The only nagging thing here was the 2.0 for his creatinine. But as I did not make him fast, the vet said it was not a cause for worry as he is a healthy kitty. Dr T had checked his lower legs and made him walk about to see if he was limping as well. It was all good and his X-rays did not show any hair-line fractures or bone abnormalities. He was also at a good weight, at 4.1 kg. I was glad  about this as Sister S and Cousin R said he seemed thinner. He must have been overweight before.  He was at the clinic for just over 30 minutes and now he is resting and listening to the rain.  I am so glad that we came him right before the rain. I am afraid this rain may continue for the whole day.

           I wonder where the sun comes from and where it goes.
