Wordless Wednesday, and then some.

Wordless Wednesday, Thimble style:

**End Wordless Wednesday**
I have a little news and thoughts to add to this Wordless Wednesday. Trapper -- my parents' cat, and Thimble's brother -- will be going to the vet today.
Trapper has always had on and off loose stool since a very young age, but the past couple of days it has gotten worse. Also -- how do I put this politely? -- he has been passing some especially malodorous gas lately. And this morning he's suddenly acting rather uncomfortable, as if he has a stomach ache and can't quite get cozy. He ate a little moist food this morning, but he's acting nothing like his usual hungry self. So, Trapper's going to the vet this afternoon. Although he hasn't provided one yet today, we're hoping for a stool sample so that parasites can be ruled out.

I don't anticipate that it's anything too serious -- hopefully just some shenanigans from his kitten intestines -- but of course purrs and prayers are appreciated for this little guy!

We like those toesies in your WW photo.

We're purring and praying for handsome Trapper and his vet appointment!

Cool big-paw picture of Thimble.

I hope all is well with Trapper. I wonder what's causing the poor guy's loose stools and discomfort. Be sure to let us know!
