The topic: Back from the vet with Marco


He has a bacterial ear infection and he has lost weight. He hasn't been in since 2008, but the vet could tell from the way his skin is hanging and his ribs. 

The vet said his heart sounds good, he couldn't feel any tumors, his teeth are ugly, but since he's still eating, he doesn't think those are the problem. So, blood was taken. 

I have meds for the ear infection and am waiting to hear the results from the bloodwork.

Before we left, I'd taken a short video with Marco.  I hope you'll find it informative.






That is a wonderful video, he is such a wonderful cat…how did you train him to go in with no drama…Forget it when we have to take a cat to the vet all hell breaks loose as soon as we bring out the carriers…I even have a vet come to my house to do routing shots and such but most of them I have to put in a carrier just to take to the bedroom where the exam and shot will be done.

You have done a such a wonderful job with Marco and I just love the video

No training at all. He’s just always liked going into the carrier.

When I get home from the vet with any other cat and set the carrier down and open the door, the other cat darts out and away. If I don’t close the door quickly enough, Marco is right in it, exactly like you see in the video.

It just looks like good training, but it’s not. He’s just a super special kitty.
