Today involved a vet trip for Cricket.
He’s been limping the past few days, so we took him in to see what’s up.
He’s gained a pound (Thank you, 9 month old niece, for chucking all your food to the floor where Cricket can get to it) but is still lighter than he was when we brought him in over summer.
It’s frustrating, but we’re (Or at least I am) trying.
Cricket is as chipper as ever, even at the vet’s today.
I was nervous mainly because I figured that for sure his limp was due to his fat and that something terribly bad was happening and he’d have to be put to sleep. But I came to realize I was overreacting.
The vet put him on some medication for the next few days, but Cricket’s paw is already better than it was when he first started limping.
As soon as he’s back to normal, I’m going to step up his weight loss regime again, which will be great since it will be the New Year, and it’ll be like…a double whammy which will inspire me to keep it up.
In case we don’t return before the holidays are up, Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, and Season’s Greetings to all of Cricket’s fans!
Remember to have a safe and happy holiday!
