THAT Time Of Year Again!

MARLEY: Guess where WE all went yesserday! Yeah, the V-E-T...  We knew SOMETHIN was up when TBT picked up Ayla an put her in the baffroom.  SHE was immediately suspicious an bolted fer the door.  TBT only got her by a back leg an it took him several tries ta get the door closed.  She DID draw some blood though.  Iza was easier.  He picked HER up an set her on the counter in the other baffroom.  She hasta plan a jump down, so he just closed the door. 

Me?  I was in my cat tree hut, so I tried ta just hide in there.  Dint werk.  When he stood there, I tried ta walk out, but he got me under the chest and by the scruff (how undignified) an put me in the cat room.

Then he retrieved us one-by-one an stuffed us in the PTUs then into the car.
Here we are in Dr Jeffry's rather spartan waiting room.  We've heard that SOME vets have waiting rooms like living rooms but we've never seen one like THAT!
Then we were in the small room with the Table Of Torture...
Dr Jeffrey has this cool picture of cat-parts on the wall.  TBT would like one, but the company doesn't seem ta exist annymore, and others he found wernt very good.
Annyway, I went first.  The exam started in the usual humiliating way...
GLOOOOOM!!!
Iza had her turn.
And Ayla.
We each got 3 shots (no rabies shots this time).

I weigh a svelte mancatly 13.1 pounds, Iza weighs 12.5 pounds (a lot of HER weight is *ahem* closer to the floor than mine), Ayla is up to 7.5 pounds.  Iza doesnt ezactly have ta go on a diet, but TBT says he is gonna hafta stop her from cleaning out all the food bowls the instant we walk away from ours.

We thought we were done with the V-E-T, but TBT says Ayla an I hafta go back fer teef-cleaning next week.  Well, I dont wanna lose my teef.  Its kinna fun waking up after too.  I see mousies hoppin all around.  Iza says she sees food.  Ayla says she just feels dizzy.

THEN we'll be done fer another year...

Acckkk! OMC, the table of torture...that's exactly it. You have our sympathies. Our PTU is out and downstairs, waiting for one of us (Nicki tomorrow, anal glands and x-ray).

Our human thinks TBT is amazingly brave to take all three of you at once. She took both of us...once. And not again. Mind you, it might be better if she didn't have to call a taxi--and if we didn't "sing" the entire way and back. LOL.

P.S. Good luck and purrs for next week's dentals. That's something Derry will need this year and our human's cringing at the cost. (Far higher than in the U.S., generally.)

Oh my goodness, not a good way to start the day! We will be purring for a nice and easy dental visit.

Darn, Marley, you and Ayla have to go BACK?! For dentals?! Bleagh. I hope it all goes well and then you don't have to think about that place for another year.

P.S. When my human's boyfriend worked at a vet clinic, they DID have a living room-like waiting room. I was there a couple of times. It did NOT make me feel any homey-er.

Amigos, vocês foram capturados, vocês precisam ter rotas de fuga, e capa de invisibilidade, caso os caminhos de fuga não sejam interceptados hehehe Pobre Marley, aquilo foi uma humilhação...
Fiquem firmes amigos!!

A challenging day for all. At least you get to go together and realise that everycat goes through the same thing. I hope you scored some treats when you got home.

OMC, you have just reminded me that MY time is coming up soon! EEEEK!!

Poor Marley! I notice you were the only one who had the embarrassment of a photo of the thermometer stuck where the sun don't shine! Hope all goes well for yours and Ayla's dentals next week.

Oh, no! We hate the table of torture, too. Ashton had to visit the v-e-t today, too, but we hope she won't have to go back again next week.

Oh noes! This just reminded Mommy she REALLY needs to bring us to the vet for a check up. She leaves our PTU out in the open and we like to hang out in there.

We'll be purring that your teeth cleaning procedure goes smoothly!

The table of torture... yes, that's the right name... A thermometer where-you-know is really the worst way to begin the day ! All the best for your teeth cleaning ! Purrs
