Post 1175: Dougy visits his veterinarian…and is a good boy!

Today, both kitty boys were to go to their veterinarian for an exam, rabies shot, and another one that I can’t decipher on the bill. One of them made it; the other was in hiding when it was time to go. Little does Andy know, he gets to visit Dr. Y. on Thursday morning, if I have to start a forest fire in his hiding places to get him to come out! Bad kitty! You’ll wish you were a good boy today like your brother! 


As usual, Dougy was whiny while in the carrier on the way to his appointment….101016 dougy 1.jpg

Once there, though, he was reasonably good while getting weighed.101116 dougy 2.jpg

Dougy was very good on the examination table, especially considering he got two shots!101116 dougy 3.jpg

Dougy got a good bill of health. Weight, heart, wiggly parts: A-OK! When we got home, Andy (of course!) greeted us at the door. I gave Dougy some kitty treats for being a good boy.

Andy joined me at the computer, ripe for snatching. Too bad I have to wait till Thursday for his appointment. He’s very available right now.

Mr. Innocent. (He just winked at me!)101116 andy.jpg

    • That is true! I can catch him one or two times at any given “neutral” place, then it becomes the next place he won’t be when it’s time for medicine. Today, he seems to think it’s safe to stretch out next to the computer desk while I’m here. Yesterday, it was by the front down. Before that it was the recliner arm closest to the glider. And so on!

    • I’m not sure, but I think Andy leaves a little pee on my shirt when I give him his medicine. It’s not much, but it seems like my shirt always is a little wet right about where he might have leaked a little….! Fortunately, because they spent weeks in the veterinarian clinic when they were kttens, they are familiar with the place, the people, the smells and sounds, and their veterinarian, who’s been their doctor all their lives. They always behave nicely in the clinic!

  1. hahaha…been there….done that! Kali used to be horrible with the fighting and clutching the side of the carrier. I have discovered she likes the little cardboard box Shoko has. Kali now goes in the cardboard box. When the lid is opened she is relaxed and flaked out like Lady Muck on a purple towel. Shoko is so overcome that one is actually thinking about taking her somewhere in a carrier that she goes obediently. It’s when they get into the car, that’s when the duet starts. The ride home is perfectly quiet. They seem to be somewhat the same.


    • I can count on Dougy to whine,m Andy to go quietly. They generally come out of the carrier without hassles at the veterinarian’s, and they charge out of the carrier like the bulls at Pamplona when they get home! Now that they ride rto the clinic in my station wagon instead of the backseat of the old car, a sedan, there is less whining during the ride from Dougy because he must realize he’s farther from me!

    • Me, too! And thanks! I hope Andy doesn’t get too suspicious. I think he went into hiding when he saw me catch his brother, who made a whine when I put him in the carrier.
