Sorry I didn't update last night but we had a busy night! Mia slipped into a 2-3 inch space between our stairs and the wall at the bottom (we can get under our stairs, so we could get her out), so we had to go to Home Depot and nail up some wood to cover up the space. She was fine by the way, but she scared me!
The vet appointment went well! She had no microchip, but they found a spay scar, so she definitely used to have a home. My parents have me feeling guilty that she belongs to someone, but we have asked neighbors, looked for signs, and checked websites and haven't found anyone who has lost a cat. Is there anywhere else we should check?
She only weighs 6 lbs and you can feel her bones so it seems to me like she had been outside for awhile. The vet estimated her age at 2 years, possibly younger. She was negative for FeLV/FIV and got her rabies shot, distemper, and dewormer. No signs of fleas or parasites.
The vet did say that her back knees seem weak and that they were popping a little when he was moving them around. He doesn't know why without doing x-rays and blood tests. They don't seem to bother her and she gets around fine so I'm just going to keep an eye on them for awhile. Any thoughts on that?
Oh and we did see Tomcat again last night near our basement door! Of course he ran off as soon as he saw us and we couldn't find him. He hadn't eaten the food I put in the shed yesterday, so last night I put food out near our basement door where we saw him, which was still there this morning.
