    Charlie went to the vet today for a checkup and she weighs 5.5 pounds, which is .5 pounds up from last year's. :( I don't understand why she is not eating and why she doesn't gain weight, she's supposed to be 6 pounds in my opinion anyways. She does have an ear infection and is taking medicine...
