Well, not quite the kind of vet visit I wanted - I got the X Ray I wanted though, but not quite for a good reason. Her knee is going out of joint too much (might be the wrong wording), so the vet thinks that she has damaged both the ligaments round that leg - god only knows how. She is going for an x-ray tomorrow, I will know what they show around lunch time. It does cause a few probs though - there is only one vet in the practice I use who can do this kind of surgery, and she is off sick, so she might end up having to be referred, and that would really depend on how far, not only am I a poor driver when it comes to directions, but she is a very poor traveller, she doesnt even like the 5 min journey to the vets, I dread to think how bad she would be with a couple of hours drive!! And there is the fact that she is a very temperamental cat who will attack for little reason, so not sure how well the recovery would be for her. Plus, this is the second leg she has been to the vets with a limp since the end of Dec. Vet was awfully surprised that she was insured though, and was even more surprised when I Said I had both girls (14 and 13) insured for just under Â£15 a month. I have very mixed feelings at the moment, I am partly annoyed at myself for not taking her sooner, and just assuming that the Metacam needed a bit more time to kick in, I should know by now that while the vet was right in that you dont normally get the same thing happening twice, this is one of my cats, and I do seem to have a knack of ending up with cats that develop slightly unusual health conditions, or at least ones that most people dont tend to see!! And then partly upset because I honestly dont know how we are going to deal with this, vet says we have to wait till the x-ray, but I know it won't stop me worrying. So, this seems to have ended my run of two healthy cats again!! Thank god for insurance!!
