      I found Dexter about 6 weeks ago. I am pretty sure is a purebred Siamese.
      He was skinny, dirty, and had a few abrasions. The only tip I had that
      something was wrong was the rumble in his chest when he wasn't purring.
      Otherwise, he acts like a normal kitten. Constantly running, jumping, and
      playing with my 2 older cats. His x-rays showed an abnormal cardiac shadow.
      He had an echo on Friday. His regular vet wasn't there that day so I got
      the preliminary report from her counterpart. And, I actually misunderstood
      what she was trying to tell me. I found out today that he actually has a
      ventricular septal defect and a mild pulmonic stenosis. He did well with
      the sedative he received with the echo so we have decided to get him
      neutered tomorrow while his health is good. I will let you know how
      everything goes tomorrow.

      Thanks for your help.

      Pam
