V-E-T... Yes, that's where I went!!
Kitties, mom took me to the v-e-t yesterday. She scooped me up after I followed a trail of treats into the computer room where my PTU is, and put me into the PTU with some more treats. I scoffed at her efforts and didn't eat the then but I did not cry. I never made a sound then, going, while there, or coming back. Wait..I did say a small sound when the Tech took me out for my pawdicure.
I went so I could have my allergy shot. My doctor always has continuing education and twelve weeks ago he had read about an allergy shot that was short acting, not as concerning to give a kitty and though called short acting, the effect paradoxically lasts a while. Sure enough I didn't get to the extremes at the passing of 12 weeks but I was nearing my limit.
I feel like a MILLION green papers, furrieds! I have been totally happy since that shot. I had the zoomies for hours because I felt so good again with no itching. I didn't lift a single foot since my shot to scratch- and now I won't barber myself (gnawing off furs and swallowing and horking them) for weeks. Then, back I go. I slept so well in all my naps when I got home again, and before bed that I was out like a light. And all night I was pressed into mom's stomach zonked. I stayed zonked when she turned over. My sleep is so much better without all that barbering and scratching.
Here I am with my doctor. Mommy and I think he is, excuse the phrase, the cat's meow. I look as annoyed as I am! MY furs got rumpled and I had to groom myself as soon as I got home; after my treats that is. I am a magnificent 10.2 pounds. I gained 1/10th of a pound in 12 weeks so I am watching my figure.
