Today I received an e-mail from one of my prayer supporters. She wrote about a bunch of different things but what struck me the most was when she wrote that her cat now weighs 12 pounds. I was surprised to hear that because it seems like a lot so I looked it up on the internet how much weight an average healthy cat should weight. From the website I found it said the average weight of a healthy cat should weight between 8 – 10 pounds.

I decided to weigh Minnie my cat because I was curious to know how much she weighed after that. I put Minnie in a cloth bag that I had at home and weighed her with my luggage scale. I was very surprised that she only weighed 6.8 lbs which means she lost around a pound since the last time I weighed her so I got a bit worried why she might have lost that weight.

I then decided to put a message on my facebook page and also send out a couple of e-mails


Minnie likes to sleep with her head on the pillow.

to see what my friends thought about it. A couple of people recommended that I take my cat to get her checked out by the vet. I thought that would be a good idea to take Minnie to the vet because she hasn’t been to one since I moved to Oradea. I looked it up to see the last time she was at the vet and actually her last vet appointment was in August 2009 so she is definitely over due for a visit to the doctor.

I looked up on the internet where I can find local veterinaries. It turns out there were a couple of different clinics in Rogerius which is the neighbourhood where I live. I called my friend Geta and asked her if she could call the veterinary clinic for me because I wasn’t sure if they spoke English or not. I explained to her that I was a bit concerned that my cat had lost a bit of weight and I didn’t understand why because she eats all the time, she is very active and she seems happy and healthy.

By the time I spoke to my friend Geta on the phone it was already around 8:00pm so it was too late for her to call the clinic today because it closes at 8:00pm. I just had to put it in God’s hands and take care of it tomorrow. I am so thankful for the Lord giving me Minnie and putting her into my life and I need to trust in Him that everything will be alright with her.
