Wiggle - Day 2,186

Poor little Sofy has been having some embarassing problems recently - she's been a bit leaky and weeing without realising.  It had been happening very randomly for a while but yesterday she wet herself 3 times while she was laying down so she went to the vet to get checked out.

She has been given Propalin syrup which will hopefully help in the short term and the vet asked for a urine sample so this morning, much to Sofy's confusion, I followed her with a shallow bowl when she went out to wee.

The vet called back with the results and it seems that Sofy's sample was indicative of early stage kidney failure as the urine wasn't very concentrated.  It could be due to the warmer weather and Sofy drinking more so to be sure, she will give another sample in about 10 days time and we will take it from there.

Apart from that, she is fine in herself and spent some time this afternoon playing in the garden.

She and Wiggle took it in turns with Octopus:

Then Sofy got hold of Centipede:

And pulled faces as she tore out stuffing:

Soon though, Sofy got bored of shredding...

So Wiggle took over:
