This evening I took Bagpuss to the vet as her gums are looking a little red and a bit sore. I took her and the vet asked if she had ever had a blood test and I said no why. He said that her gums are infected and normally this is the first sign of kidney problems. So she is going in for a blood test tomorrow morning and they are going to call me if there is anything found to be wrong with her kidneys...ie the start of kidney problems. If nothing is found she will go on to have her teeth scaled. Hopefully she will be all okay because I do not want to be the one to make a hard decision!!!! Anyways keeping positive - hope that there is nothing wrong with her!
