And after we first got outside, she was a little reluctant to leave the safe confines of my jacket.
But, after she got used to being outside again (it has been a while) she enjoyed a bit of exploring.
Walking a kitten on a leash does NOT lend itself to any sort of linear progress towards an ultimate destination. Eventually the time came to scoop her up and head to meet up with Natalie and go to the vet's office, where she was freed from her harness and allowed to explore the exam room prior to her checkup, ultimately leading her to the windowsill that she favored at her last visit.
Eventually we got down to business...well, the vet and the tech did, while Natalie and I watched. Melly needed 3 more shots which she REALLY did not enjoy. She wasn't a fan of getting her temp taken either, but her complaining about that was mild compared to the attempted assault during the vaccines. However, now she is all done with them and was given a clean bill of health and shouldn't have to go back for another year. Plus, we also learned that she's up to 3.8 pounds now.
Since getting home (she rode the whole way in my coat and was quite sedate in there) she's been quite mellow and sleepy, which is to be expected after the shots. It seems she's also developed an affinity for the television remote.
