When it rains, it pours.

Our youngest kitty, Rambo stopped eating, late last week and we had to take him to the doctor.
When Rambo went to see the Vet, he was exhibiting signs of depression, sleepiness, a slight fever, and lack of appetite.
The Vet ran a bunch of tests and concluded that Rambo has a Congestive Heart Disease.
Next steps included an EKG.

However, the night before he went for the exams, I thought I spotted some funky wound like thing on his posterior. But, I could not locate the same a few minutes later. I let it go.

The day after the exam, I ran my fingers over Rambo again and found that he had a wound on his right buttock. Rambo let us know that spot was painful when we washed and cleaned it.

I took Rambo back to the same Vet the next morning and asked about the same.
Well, they 'found' it since my showing where the wound was.
No apology or reduction in bill offered - go figure!

We are all shook-up. But, staying positive that the best outcome will occur.
Looking for another Vet or a second opinion, on/after Tuesday next week.

Choko is doign much better. He is eating and acting normally.
BK is doing well also.

I will leave you with this song by Sting, featuring Anoushka Shankar (daugher of the great Sitarist Ravi Shankar). Not intended to imply anything in particular, but it is just a good song.

Happy Memorial Day weekend to all!

Linking to Saturday's Critters

Have a Happy Weekend!
Peace :)


  1. Hello, I hope Rambo is feeling better. It is a shame the vet did not diagnose the kitty's illness correctly. Adorable photos and sweet kitties. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  2. Sorry to hear this...I'd say another vet is a must it's just not good enough...

  3. If they had apologized, you would feel a bit different maybe. I am sorry they did not find it the first time; i do think the return visit should have been free. I hope he feels better soon.

  4. Hope Rambo too will do well... you are taking care of your pets/kids so well :)

    They are adorable

  5. I hope Rambo makes a full recovery with no more money spent.

  6. I hope Rambo feels better soon!

  7. Thank you, Jeevan, Cloudia, Felicia & Terri.

  8. Keep up the good fight for your wee one! Thinking of you.
