Angel is a boy.
The Vet said so...
Well, the sterilisation is cheaper for males.....
Doesn't matter, he is still my Angel.
His first vet visit went well, he ran all over the office looking for a place to hide, or maybe he was exploring, he did sniff the whole floor and sat on the vets chair while he was in the supply room getting the vaccine.
But when it came time for the vaccination, he was very well behaved. I held him firmly and he didn't flinch at all when the needle went in.
He was also treated for fleas and earmites, (he has both, which is common in backyard kittens), then I mentioned Angel's left eye has been a bit weepy, I've been wiping it with a tissue twice a day, so the vet applied some ointment.
We decided he'd probably got a bit of dust in that eye from playing under the bed, so tomorrow I'll run a damp mop under there and under the couch as well.
On our way out, I bought a bag of fish flavoured dental cleaner treats for him. He gets up to six of those a day according to weight, increasing as he grows. I took away the dry crunchies he loves and put down the dental crunchies after he'd finished his dinner. He loved them.
He is also now drinking kitten milk...at first he wouldn't touch it...I discovered that he doesn't like it cold from the fridge but will drink it after it has sat out for several hours.
The carton says to give him 50-100ml per day, so I've been giving him a quarter cup with breakfast.
So...Angel is a boy.
