So Kirzon went to the vet today - he has lost a pound since the last time he was there - since that was only in July that is not good. He had his teeth looked at (he is prone to lots of tartar - if he had a superpower it would be the ability to get tartar on his teeth) and he did have a lot of tartar and red gums - that could be the problem (plus, his breath is just awful). He is very prone to it for some reason - the other 4 don't have that problem. He had his teeth cleaned a couple years back and it was hard because he was very out of it for a few days (they have to put him out for it). But he will not (no matter what I do) let me brush his teeth - and he hates the tartar control cat treats. They also took some blood to test in case it isn't just a tooth issue - we will know on Monday. So keep him in your thoughts - we arehoping for a good result and it just being the teeth.
Also, while I was there I was talking to Kelly, the vets assistant mentioned that her daughter Megan, who made the cat toy that Barney was playing with in the sun pictures a couple days back, just got some bad news about her kitty (and I appologize if Kelly or Megan reads this - I cannot remember the kitties name) being very sick, so if all you out there in the cat blog community could send purrs and good thoughts their way that would be great. I know they read the blog and I am sure they would appreciate the good thoughts.
(The other pictures, of Barney with the pink bunny, feature the bunny made by Melvin's mom - that I kind of have kept for myself, but I will let him sleep with it if he is nice to it).
I haven't had a chance to get the pictures I want to post for the Oops I ate it so I will try and do that tomorrow. We may have the computer problems partly fixed (we unpluged one of the USB item - unfortunately it was the laptop cooler, so the machine is very hot as I type - I am nut sure if it is the port or the cooler - the cooler is pretty old, because I had it the whole time with this one and with the old laptop), so I should hopefully have some luck with uploading pictures tomorrow (as opposed to loading one or two, rebooting, loading a couple more, rebooting, etc.)
ETA: So as soon as I published this post, I went to another page to look up something, the computer locked up and I had to reboot - the keyboard is insanely hot (which it would be even with the laptop cooler fan running) so I think it is still a problem. Stupid computer.
