Cleocatra, our newest (and final) addition

Isn't she just a little fuzzy doll?!  She is absolutely precious.  But I needed to get her checked out as well as Miss Marble.  And Sprinkles was also due for his rabies shot and general check-up.  But no way was I about to haul three cats in carriers to the vet.  Nor was I about to make three separate trips.  So, we called the mobile vet.  The veterinarian comes to YOUR HOUSE.  Yes, it was wonderful.  I brought each one out to the bus to be checked and get their shots and have blood taken.  Sooo much easier.  Cleocatra is about 8 months old, in good health except that she needs to be spayed which we'll do within the next two weeks.  Sprinkles acted the worst of the three cats.  But he is looking good in all areas of health. (Thankfully!)  But the big surprise of the day was Miss Marble.  As it turns out, Miss Marble is a boy.  Guess he'll have to be Mr. Marble now.  He has a heart murmur grade 2/5.  We just need to watch it.  Not really sure what they'll do for it it he does become symptomatic though.

But overall, the mobile vet service is something that I HIGHLY recommend.  The vet was smart, nice, and great with the cats.
