Hi
I found an abandonded cat in our builidng white so friendly and full of affection . I decided to keep her . when I took her to the vet she decided to do aids test and gave her a shot ( as we didnt know if she had any) and ofcourse a nice bath , she is not microchipped or sterilized and the vet said that she is one year max . Also the doctor said that she is flea free .
Is there any other things/tests I should do ?
she drinks more than once a day , she eats very little but so loving and like to stick with me wherever I go whenever Im at home .
she purrs all the time when I stroke her .
she doesnt paly a lot or move a lot .. she plays very little and then lay down or roll over ....etc
I lost a my first pet when he was ten months old for blood infection in just two days and Im still suffering . I dont want to go through the same experience again . do u think she is ok and just getting comfortable with her new place and ownver ?

thanks

it sounds like you have everything covered except for spaying her. Since she seems healthy I think that should be the next thing on your list as soon as you are able to do it, that way she'll be a lot healthier : )

How is your kitty doing? I am no expert,but I have 4 cats and have had 12 now in my lifetime and some things crossed my mind when I saw your letter...
In many ways I was reassured because you took her to a vet right away. Some things that are very serious in cats ARE notable to a vet right away. Also the fact that she is affectionate and attentive and bonding with you so well is a good sign.
Her level of fatigue does seem troubling in "catten"/barely not a kitten.My first thought is to call your vet and describe the situation. She can tell you what to look for and make suggestions. Likewise with the eating, Maybe she could use a different food.Talk to your vet. Sounds like you have a darling. And I hope you don't have to suffer the loss of this new lovey. I hope to hear good news from you!
