We have a 21...

We have a 21 year old cat with swollen front paws and loud breathing.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the cat's name?

She is alert and eating.

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

She is mobile, likes sitting by the radiator. Is not making any noise that suggests she is in pain.
