The Big Cat gets a checkup 

Poor Marcel had to go to the doctor today for his routine visit. It's been more than 1 1/2 years since he's been, so he was long overdue.

We used to bring him and Noe to a vet in San Francisco, but it is across town, took a long time to get there, and we'd never get the same doctor twice. Last year, I decided to make the switch to bring our kitties to my favorite vet in Milpitas. It's 45 minutes away, but it's almost easier than driving across town, through stop and start traffic. I've been going to Dr. Anderson in Milpitas for at least 20 years now. We've brought in all of my rats, our birds, and now our kitties. Dr. Anderson has a wonderful bedside manner, and I really think it's worth the extra drive to bring our kitties to him.

We've had Marcel for 4 years now. He's been on a diet the entire time. The poor little guy only gets fed 1/4 cup of food twice a day, and he doesn't get treats very often. Somehow, he's managed to gain a for each year that we've had him! Today he weighed in at a whopping 17.1 lbs! Oh my! Poor little guy - sometime cats, like people, just have slow metabolisms. We got a 4 lbs sample of Science Diet food, and we'll try that out on him for the next few months. The good news is, he gets to have more food with this diet than before!

I need to bring him back in a few months to get his first teeth cleaning.
