One Word Wednesday

Yep one word - V-E-T!

Alright, so I've got a few more words to go along with that first one...

I was so excited yesterday, Mommy came home early and we played for a few minutes - we never do that. Then I got some afternoon treats, we never do that either. But then it really got strange.

Mommy went down to our litter box and dug around yelling that there was no "fresh poop" - that's weird right?! Then she came back with the PTU and I knew I was in trouble. I tried to run, but it was too late!

Here's me in my PTU - can you see me?

So I went as quietly as I could (which wasn't really all that quietly) - and I suppose it wasn't too bad. The mean doctor didn't use the thermometer and he didn't wash my ears. He did stabbed me once and then he used an extra loud shooty thing that scared me a lot (he told Mommy that it was a new way of giving me my booster - less painful but really loud!).

There were a few bright spots. It turns out that I am a bit of celebri-kitty at the vet's office! Do you see a kitty you recognize on their wall of fame (you'll probably have to biggify)?

The other bright spots were the extra stinky goodness I got for dinner and that I got to cuddle all night with Mommy (and she even made the boys and the dog leave me alone) - those were the best!

Maybe going to the V-E-T isn't all bad - nah, who am I kidding?!

Pearl, you are a very brave girl to try to put a positive spin on a trip to the v-e-t. It is a good sign, though, that they put a picture of you up in the office. I was borned in Michigan and
Granny and Auntie Jane found me in a tree next to Auntie Jane's house in western Michigan. My momma needed me to help her get her Ph.D, though, so that's why I live here in Ithaca, NY with her and Coco. We go back to Michigan a couple of times a year.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Hi Pearl. Yes -- I am always suspicious when the woman comes home and starts paying extra attention to me. If I even see that carrier I head for the hills.

DEBRA said...

We want to know how your Momma knew that you were the one who did not use the litterbox? That is one thing Momma is always werried about with all of us. If one of us were to have problems she is not sure how she would tell which one of us it was?
We are all relieved that your trip to the V-e-t wasn't toooooo bad. Extra treats is always good.


Queen Snickers and Empress said...

Sorry about the V-E-T Pearl! My momma is extra sneaky about our carriers, she leaves them out all the time for us to play in, and put treats in them. We never know when the one time we are playing the sides will get zipped and BAM we're STUCK!

Whisker tickles for Jake! ~Queen Snickers

Oh my wonderful, beautiful Pearl - are you alright? That V-E-T wasn't too mean to you was he because if he was I'll go and bunny kick him and whap him extra hard. Oh I hope you are okay! I am so sorry that you had to go to the V-E-T but at least he recognizes how wonderful you are and put you on his celebrikitty wall! You definately deserve that!

Love furrver, Dante

Yes, I read about that new way of getting boosters, but I'm not sure I would like noisy machine. I'm glad you are on the wall of fame through (I think).

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Pearl, we are sorry to hear you had to go to the vet, but glad to hear that things went well and you got extra stinky goodness and cuddles with your mom!

Cat-a-holic, Lilly and Laila said...

WOW! You are famous!

The Furry Kids said...

Pearl, you were very brave at the V-E-T. I had to go last week, too, and it sucked. I'm glad that you got extra stinky goodness and lots of cuddles from your mom.

Pearl, I am proud of you for acting so brave at the vet's. Nothing good ever happens to me there.
