Customer Question
We just got a...

We just got a two kittens - i'm told they are two months old and have always lived in a barn - which is perfect for me, because i want them to catch mice in my basement they are darling kittens - great personalities, not afraid of people, my question is,

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the kitten?

One of the kittens has something protruding into (out of? but not through the skin) his belly - it feels like a bone he's very happy and energetic, eats well,

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the kitten?

This is all i know we've only had them a couple of days male and female - so will be getting them fixed
