Olivia's first visit to the vet on July 3, 2019

How old is the little girl?


Olivia had her first vet visit yesterday. Picture below.

Said vet questioned the date of birth, provided by the El Cajon Animal Shelter, as November 21, 2017.

Said vet thought it more likely that it was November 21, 2018. That would make this little girl just 7 months old instead of 1 year & 7 months old. That certainly would explain her small size (7½ pounds) and her boundless energy.

Said vet approved of feeding her whenever she wanted to eat, as much as she wanted to eat, and we’ll see if she “puts on weight and grows up to be a full grown cat.”

Said vet approved of the food I was feeding her, which is not kitten food. Said vet said at her actual age or perceived age, adult food was fine.

If she is only 7 months old, she’s a very well trained and/or smart little 7-year-old. She has learned that she cannot go on the top of the piano, tables, and countertops. She’s not happy about being banished from the bathroom countertops, though. Oh, well.

Next visit to said vet is scheduled for January 3, 2020.

    She is very beautiful. I am so glad you are training her not to walk around on kitchen food counters. We always trained ours too. I just cannot understand why many cat owners allow this.

      Let’s see. Kitty! Kitty! Where are you Kitty? Oh, there you are. Did you have fun in your litter box? How about you come up here on the kitchen counter where I’m making PB&J sandwiches and watch me?
