Tuesday This and That

Well, I had a surprize today. Mum hauled me off to the stabby place to see Dr Tom. I am not sick, just my annual checkup. Mum took some pics and even made a moovie of my journey.

It is a cold day, so it was a bit chilly as we drove over to the appointment. Mum was nice and turned on the seat warmer and the heater kicked in quickly. So I wasn't cold. I just hunkered down, didn't even sing to mum while I was in the metal monster. Only one other spot taken in the parking area so mum got a spot right by the door, so a quick trip into the building.
 Plus they are super organized, so as soon as they check me in, they take me into the exam room. Nice bench for mum's stuff, or to sit if she wants. She usually stays right by me to comfort me.
 Some art, a purple cat. Plus the usual certificates of the stabby man that he actually did graduate from vet school.
 The rest of the room, the door you see is where the stabby guy and assist purrson arrive from. Me and mum get in and out by a different door. Plus, they do their best to keep us kitties away from the woofies.
So how did I do? Just grate! I am 8 pounds 13 ounces, good weight for me. I am normally right around 9 pounds, give or take a few ounces. My heart sounds are good, my ears are good. I was told I have excellent muscle mass and look nice and trim!

Something new this time, I got no shots! Instead they did my distemper by having me inhale it up my nose! Dr Stabby said they try to keep from doing injections on cats as that isn't the best for us. Good for them for making it easy for us.

Then the ride home and mum is letting me do my thing. I did come and sit by her for a short time. Then she went off to get more library books. She brought home a big stack, that might keep her for a couple of weeks, maybe.


  1. Ducky, we are so happy for you that everything went so well. We know the heated seat was great to have for traveling. Now you can relax with mum while she enjoys so good reading. Thanks for the share. Have a great day.

  2. Oh, the humanity! Ducky, as awful as this experience was for you, I enjoyed hearing your sweet meows.

  3. Rags & Brat approve of your protest, they perked right up hearing your mrows!

  4. It sounds like you have a good Vet but hooray for it being over!

  5. Hooray for having a good checkup! But your poor little pathetic mews were tugging at our hearts.

  7. That sounds like a totally tolerable visit to the fix-it place, Ducky! And now with all those library books, you'll have lots of lap time with your mum.

  8. Glad all went well today. Just want to thank you for your kind words about our Only.

  9. I'm glad you had a good checkup and everything looks normal. I would LOVE to have a vaccine that wasn't in shot form!

  10. It was difficult to listen to you crying Ducky. But I hope you understood that your mum was acting in your best interests. And interesting to hear that you get to snort now instead of being stabbed. So, I guess that means that the doctor has changed his name now? No longer Dr Stabby - now Dr Snorty! LOL
