Well, just a little update! I took Jasmine to the vet this afternoon. She unfortunately has a tiny spot of ringworm above her eye, at this point I want to scream lol....Colin, Kenzie, Me, and now Jasmine have it! Uhh!!! I got some extra medicine for her and i'm ordering more Tek-Trol as I type! Kenzie's spots are starting to look much better as are mine and Colin's thankfully...so now we just have to clear up Jasmine. While we were there, I had her teeth checked- the vet said they look great (I brush all of my animals teeth I'm getting my degree in dentistry ...lol go figure!) Her ears and the rest of her look great according to the vet, so that's good! She weighs 14.7oz...her target weight is 9 lbs. She weighed 15lbs when I adopted her...so she hasn't lost much at all since we've had her despide differnt diets,measuring out her food, and not free feeding her. I was a bit concerned that she wasn't loosing any weight over time....with a steady diet, so that's why she went back to the vet. That and I really suspected ringworm when I noticed a tiny spot on her today- what can I say, I'm an overprotective meowmy lol. We're trying yet another new weight mantinance diet with her *sigh* dry Science Diet Feline R/D formula. She will get a total of 1/2- 3/4 a cup of food a day (i will split that into two feedings...one in the morning and one at night.)The vet said this should help her with her weight so hopefully this will work! I will also be putting Abilene and Isabella on this too to help maintain and keep them at a healthy weight. Velvet will stay on the Purina. She does excellent with it. / Jasmine was such a trooper today! lol, she's such a good girl! I couldn't fit her fat butt into the carriers or her harness .....yet another reason she needs to loose weight! I'm going out first thing tomorrow after my class to get a carrier big enough for her...just in case (I always have my girls in a kennel when I transport them, but Jasmine is ok on a leash and in the backseat (she's like a dog trapped in a kittys body, so she went on her leash today- she was sooo funny! she was looking out of the window just like a dog and "talking" to me with her little siamese meows lol! (she's completly leash trained just like a dog- all of my girls are). She was awesome! We had to wait a bit once we got there, so she sat down on the bench with me and was very good. she was rolling over the bench and playing...she didn't care about the dogs or other animals there....lol, she even tried to make friends with several animals and people! Most cats would have been having a heartattack after what she sat through today- there were swarms ofdogs in there that were really loud...lol, didn't phase Jasmine- thankfully! (i was trying to keep her away from everyone else and their pets in case she was contagious, but it sure was a trip, Jasmine kept trying to work the crowd lol). The vet absolutely loved her lol...Jasmine was purring away and trying to kiss her during the entire visit..lol, she's my favorite to take to the vet....the others freak out lol... thanks for the responses everyone! I will keep everyone posted. They all start their new diet tomorrow! Wish me luck!! I will have to resist all of those cute "starved" little faces and meows lol. Thanks everyone! Once I got Jasmine home she decided that she was "mad" at me for taking her to the vet...lol..she sulked for about 2 minutes before I got her mice out to let her play....then she was happy What a goof ball!
