(Remember Nobody Beats the Biz by Biz Markie?)
Gizmo checked out just fine at the vet this afternoon; aside from a tick on his right ear everything was great! No ear mites or anything, his heart rate and temperature were all normal. Yay ... that means we get to keep him!! I'm so happy I could just pee (my parents used to have a cocker spaniel puppy who peed every time he got excited about something haha). He was SUCH a good boy during the whole examination and getting his shots, too. So now that makes 4 kitties here at home (3 boys, 1 girl) and I think we have reached our kitty threshold! He's going back to the vet in 2 weeks to get neutered and two weeks after that for booster shots etc.
So that's all the good news from here. I wish I could close out with a picture of the little guy but he's somewhere sleeping and I'd love to get a photo that shows off his eyes and cute little face. Maybe next time? And I'll be back soon with more of my haul from the Great Lakes Fiber Show, promise!
Edited to add ... a PICTURE!!!
