Quit Losing Weight, Buddy

I took Buddy in for his regular cancer check up. He’s probably fine, I’ll know more tomorrow when the blood test results come back, but he seems fine. Except no matter how much I get him to eat he keeps losing weight. He’s down to 11 pounds, 9 ounces. He was 13 pounds something last August. That’s how quickly he is losing! (He started out at 20 pounds.)

Here he is at the vet, sitting very unhappily in the cat carrier. He’s a vocal cat so everyone in the Village on the way to the vet and everyone at the vet were aware of his displeasure. Sorry little dude. (He’s curled up on my lap now, purring.)
