Teddy to the vet

We've been planning to take poor matted Teddy to the vet and finally it seemed warm enough this week so Anne and Gary met me at the yard yesterday morning and we set up the drop trap to try to get the big guy.

At first he just looked confused and annoyed and wasn't interested in going under but finally the smell of Seafood Supreme, thank you Friskies, got the better of him and we got him.

Off he went for a shave.  The vet also flushed out his ears and removed some polyps that had totally blocked one ear canal.  Teddy has lost 2 pounds since last year, he used to be 16 pounds, now down to 14, so we ran some bloodwork to see if anything was going on, thankfully it came back normal, guess he's just getting old, or maybe it's because Harry takes their food and water, sigh.

He's just recovering at the vet now for a day or two.  I'm sure Biffy and Lily are missing their protector, he's still an intimidating cat.  Teddy is a favourite, I hope he hangs in for a while longer.  I hate that so many of them are getting older and it's hard to provide any vet care.
