The Sunny Kittens go for a check-up

Honeybear had not pooped for five days now, and I was getting really worried.  While I know constipation is not life-threatening and sometimes, there may not be much poo when kittens are solely on milk, Honeybear had already been eating soaked kibbles for 3 days now.

So, off the three went to the vet's for a check-up.

It was an incredibly long wait....

 Rex is always the bravest of them all.

 Honeybear just wants to play...

Since we had to wait, CP was still there and it was so nice of her to give Honeybear an hour of energy healing as well.  Thanks very much, CP!

The vet was quite tickled by them and their antics!  He said Rex and Fox both had such large eyes.  

He examined them all and said they were all in the pink of health and growing well.

Surprisingly, when checked, it was found that Honeybear was not constipated at all.  There was just a wee bit of faeces in his intestines, so that's okay.  That meant he had absorbed all the food. 

The vet said all they needed was deworming.  The last deworming was done on the day I got them (which was 25th May, about ten days ago).  Kittens should be dewormed every two weeks, the vet advised.  Another option was every 4 weeks, so it was up to me. 

We'll get them dewormed, I thought.  So, they had to be weighed. 

Guess who is the heaviest? 


And the difference between Fox and Honeybear was only 30g.  The vet was surprised too.  Honeybear's the smallest, but his weight is almost that of Fox's. 

By the time we got home, I barely had enough time to load all the stuff for the USJ Carnival...
