Caturday

HiYa, Ducky here. Well, it has been an interesting day. Things started out normal, but then, mum got me in the PTU and off to the VET!
Yes, I did sing the song of our people. Not so much in the car or even at the VET, but sing I did.
 Here I am in the metal monster, all buckled in so I stay safe. Mum drives carefully, unlike the idiot who made an illegal U-turn on a red light no less. She pulled in front of mum, who backed off so we didn't get hit.
 My weight, down a bit from last year, but a good spot for me. Usually 8.5-10 pound for me.
 OK, I can get off the scale. I managed to avoid the probe being used on me. Didn't realize I was standing right next to it.
 A few things have changed in the office. The exam bench is now 90 degrees from what it was. Plus there is the blue mat, so you aren't on the cold, slippery metal bench.
 Hmmm, more room on this counter now too, the little cold box that used to sit here is gone. I spy something hiding by the plant!

Treats or maybe bribes for good behavior. But I wasn't given any. Mum provided treats when we got home.
Me just hunkered down and waiting. Mum talked to me all the time giving me pets and kisses to keep me calm. Although I have been a laid back kittie at the VET anyway.
Dr Adam starting to check me over. Hey, you are new here! Yep he is, four vets bought the practice from Dr M who retired. The new guy I saw was nice and gentle, young! He has been practicing for four years and went to Bucky Badger Vet School.
 We got a little bit of snow over night. Not much, mum says she isn't going to bother with cleaning off the back at all.
The front melted all on its own! Mum says that is the advantage of an asphlat driveway. It is dark, soaks up heat and then can melt what hits in at this time of year. Going to be nice this next week. Plus we are seeing spring birds, robins, red-winged black birds and grackles.

Off to ignore mum for while, then bug her for gooshy foods and treats again.

I am glad your vet visit went well, Ducky. My vet gives me treats after I have my blood stolen because I have to be starved for it. He knows I am going to be very hungry.

While a trip to the Vet is never fun, we are happy you had a good check up :)
We got a bit more snow than you did so mum has to shovel.
She needs a path to the bird feeder.
We hope it melts quick with all the sun next week ;)
Enjoy that gushy food!
