The second visit to the vet


How time flires! One minute you have three tiny furry balls and the next minute they begin to actually resemble real cats with very different personalities. They are now 14 weeks old and are growing wildly. Today we had the second visit to the vet for injections and a chip.. Yes, they have all three been digitalised. I find it a comforting thought that – if anything might happen – they are at least traceable. Or easier to trace anyway. Or it’s probably easier to track us down instead of the cats but you know what I mean!


And ofcourse they had to be weighed again too and wow… espeially Humphrey has put on some serious weight. Weird also to realise that he is now the same weight as Gizmo was when she died. 1.7 kilo.. So Humphrey is the absolute winner when it comes to gaining weight as he has grown 500 gram in the last three weeks. He’s growing hard too and has long legs and big feet and is rather clumsy too… A little bit like a boy in his puberty I would imagine.


Both ladies gained a proper 300 grams. It turned out Humphrey has only one ball that has decended so we hope that will change in the next three months. That makes neutering a whole lot easier you see. Both testikels have to be removed but if one is hiding he will have a bigger surgery ahead of him to fix the issue. But we’ll worry about that later. He was not too pleased with all the “ball-handling”.. Lol…

The difference in character is also becoming quite apparent. All three are the sweetest. Buffy is a scaredy cat, but also likes to cuddle like crazy and maybe she is the sweetest of them all. Sookie is the boss. Not afraid of anyone and will be the most adventurous. What worries us most is the thought of them going outside. Another reason to wait a bit. Like I said Humphrey is such a clumsy fellow and also very social. So we’re afraid he might just fall asleep in the middle of the road or gets snatched by someone… I’m still undetermined as to they will go out at all.

The vet was really pleased with how they looked and how they had grown and their general health and we were 200 euro poorer by the time we left the door. Another traumatic event will occur in three months when they have to be neutered!
