I've heard that cats sometimes purr when they're in pain or just anxious, not just happy...

my cat purrs all the time so I can't ever tell by that what his mood is. It's cute and annoying all at once.

we're back....

he did everything I knew he would....walked right into the carrier and then cried for dear life until we got there 5 minutes later.

We saw the associate vet today instead of our usual one. He didn't gain anything since last year but she said he needed to lose THREE pounds! WTF. He weighs just over 12 and when I got him he weighed 8 1/2 and you could see his ribs. She kept saying that the average cat should weight 7-9 pounds. That's great but he is also super long and tall. The vet we saw last year said he could stand to lose 1/2 pound so I'll stick with that.

I think next year I'm going to request the vet we've seen in the past only because this one was a major slowball with the shots and took so long that he jumped across the table after she stuck him. She had to get a tech for help. Usually the other lady does it so fast he doesn't have time to react but the one went about it way too slow so he had to get stuck 3 times for 2 shots.

I always thought 7-9 pounds was for a smallish cat. 12 looks about right for Wesley's size/body shape.

Wally's annual vet appointment is Friday. He will cry the whole way there too.

the vet we saw the last 2 years said he should be at the 12 point mark and he's really barely over that so I'm not going to do anything about it. When I got him they told me that he needed to gain 3 pounds to be at a healthy weight for his size so I'm certainly not going to try to get him to shed 3 pounds.

Good luck to Wally on Friday! I hate the crying in the car

Wesley is super happy now that everyone is home, he has a full belly, and air is on full blast so now we both can relax

Studies have shown that there actually IS an "annoying" purr. I certainly can tell when one of my cats is doing it - It's very irritating, not soothing as purring usually is. There's a different tone.

Glad to know that Wesley is fine, and best wishes to Wally for Friday. Sometimes if we put a towel over the carrier, Fergus is quieter--and the kitten definitely are! Callie is a pretty good little traveler in any case.

Strange that I've never noticed that with Wesley. But my parents have both said that he has been upset with them (they can tell by his tail signals) and they've noticed he is purring so loud they thought he was growling. I've never noticed a difference. He must just be so in love with his mama!

I love it when they help pack and unpack My sister used to travel for work when we lived together and it was so funny to see how Lily knew what the suitcase meant. The minute my sister would get it out to pack Lily would go and hide under the bed and start a hunger strike. Once my sister got home Lily would plant herself on top of the suitcase and lay there for days.
