Poor little kitty

I had to take Quinn to the vet today. She's been having some bowel issues, and the news wasn't exactly good. She has an serious infection in some of her rear-end glands, and a skin infection in that area. So today Quinny did not hav e a good day. She even got her butt hair shaved so it would be easier for us to see what's going on. Also, she has gingivitis, and the vet reccomended I start brushing her teeth every day, and also schedule an appointment to get her teeth cleaned (which, for cats, they have to be put under because it's painful - they go under the gum line). So $100 later, I finally was able to bring her home. We have medicine to give her for the next week, and I'm to take her back to the vet on Wednesday for a check up. Right now she doesn't trust me but I think she'll be okay.

Poor little thing. It's the worst thing when your pets are sick.

Aren't cat butts fun? One of our cats has constipation problems and gets medication (stool softener) and canned pumpkin (extra fiber) 3x/day! No meds=no poop. One of the others has tooth problems, but not too bad.

I still say pets are cheaper than kids (at least there's no college to pay for!)!!
