Photo Article: Oakley travels to the vets in style

My three legged cat Oakley is getting old and so now needs a check up every three or four months. The vet is about 400 yards away but Oakley still weighs almost 4 KG so this time he travelled in style as you can see below.

The old boy is no longer morbidly obese. Gone are the days when he was well over 6 kg. In fact he has lost another 10% of his body weight since July despite eating like a horse. So more blood tests are needed. I am in the wrong business. I should be a vet it really is easy money. They warn you how much it will cost but for your best friend you just say "go ahead" and gulp.
