    Taking Ebby to the vets ...

    ... on Monday. Could we please have good thoughts for there to be nothing, or next to nothing, wrong with my beautiful girl? Thanks.

    Chris, I'll be sending lots of positive thoughts to Ebby and hope she'll pass the examination with flying colours.

    Is there a specific reason you take her, or is it just for a check-up?

    Give you sweet girl some kisses from me.

    Thanks Randi.

    No, not a check-up, hard to explain ... she is drinking very noisily, very loudly, otherwise she is fine but I am worried enough to get it checked out. Also, a protruding bony area in her front that she has always had seems a little bigger, but that could be down to my imagination.

    Your kisses will be given later for sure.

    Sending positive vibes to Miss Pretty Kitty!

    Maybe the noisy drinking is her manners just slipping a wee bit??? Seriously tho - hoping it's nothing to be concerned about.

    Aww, okay. Could be congestion that makes her drinking noisier ... says an allergic human during ragweed season ...

    How old is Ebby? When my Mac entered his "Golden Years", say about 10 or so, his front breastbone started to get more prominent and bony. Now, he is 15 or so and a bit more bony, but he suffers from hyperthyroid, which makes it hard to keep weight on him. Come to think of it, he DID start drinking more often and more loudly when he first came down with hyperthyroid. If that is what it is, it is easily controlled by inexpensive meds, so it is not fatal at all! I hope Ebby is perfectly healthy and that she is just developing a loud drinking habit. I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers.
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    Prayers and good wishes are being sent for Ebby, and I hope this is nothing serious.

    You are VERY wise to take her in to see the vet when something questionable comes up. Good on you both!

    God bless you and Ebby. Please give her some nice pets and skritches and kissies from us.

    She is around 12 or 13.

    Thanks everyone for the good thoughts, prayers, and ideas on what could be wrong. I'll keep you posted. Funnily enough I haven't heard her noisy drinking since I made the appointment.

    Oh, if she isn't unwell she will microchipped, a bit late I know but better than never eh?

    Sending good thoughts and lovies to you both. Prayers that everything is OK with dear sweet Ebbs!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!
