We arrived and Jenn came in to get vitals and whisk our girl away for the blood tests. Back in the room, Sophie just settled right down, unconcerned about a thing! Doesn't she remind you of Abigail's Angels?
If you've never seen it before, this is cause to rejoice! A negative FIV/FeLV test! Yay! She'll need to be tested again in two months to be really sure, but this is a very good start.
Pretty soon Doc Andrew came in and examined our little lady stem to stern. She got Revolution for the fleas and worms and her first set of shots. Not a peep!!!
Well, I take that back! Doc complained she was so loud he couldn't hear her innards when he was doing the stethoscope part of the exam. Yeah, you guessed it, she wouldn't stop purring!! He finally had to do the old water on the feet trick to get her to stop long enough to complete the exam...
So our first visit with the doc was a very positive one! I don't think I'm going to have to spell V-E-T around her!! Sophie was rewarded with stinky goodness, real tuna variety, when we returned home and she now has the run of the basement. :-)
Tomorrow we have some exciting news from Webbthistle!! And news about a brand new Spacepaws foster, staying with our co-worker, Amy!
