We all have to go to the VET in August for our wellness checks, Puff and Powder also get a geriatric panel of labs run since they are now 11 years old. Mommy has a question - should she press the VET harder about the speckles? She's been on the internet looking for what these may be and some of the answers get her very nervous. All of the advice says that if it isn't bothering the kitty that it's normal...but Mommy thinks that maybe they should be checked anyway...maybe...the other half of her brain says that it's not good to put Puff through extra stress. What we want to know are your thoughts and opinions - what would your 'rents do?

A Question About Puff's Speckles
Puff is the kitty who gets a lot of "Oh what a pretty cat" comments from everyone and I agree, she is quite the looker. The first photo you see is of Puff in February of 2008. If you look at her left eye you see the beginning of a speckle. There is some dark coloration on the corner of her right eye as well. Our VET said that since it doesn't bother her that there is no reason to worry, it's just "speckles".
Below is a very unflattering photo of the Puffster taken today. You can see that her speckles have gotten larger, but they still do not bother her and she still acts like a cat half her age.
