I agree with everyone in that the Vet must have a personal talking to from me, mom, before Katie goes back again if she does. I will do that as I did once before. When Admiral was still living, I left that very office for 2 years which had a different set of vets in it, because of the bad behavior of one of the office personnel. I went to several other Vet's offices before I decided to go back to the one we have always used through all my cats. I met the present Vet and found the others moved on and there was a new set of them. I approached the new-to-me vet about that office person and told him why I had not been there for several years. He said she had been fired. I was so grateful to know that. Until now, there has not been a problem.
I will, as I did then, pay for a visit of his time and express my concerns about this tech. Make no mistake of that. This is my little girl and while the tech wasn't cruel, he was uncaring and possibly hurt her scruffing her for the nail cutting. All of the things I said last night, I will address without having the cat with me. If Katie acts afraid to be put in the carrier from now on, then it will be that tech's fault and *I* am the one along with Katie who will be traumatised forever because of it.
Here Katie has ever been so sweet about being in the carrier and never fussed or cried. If that has changed I will be very angry because I went thru the dickens getting Admiral to the Vet. That was no one's fault. It was just Admiral. Getting a break with Katie was a breath of fresh air. I am deeply concerned about any aftermath. I hope she can forgive but I won't count on it. I am already apprehensive about going ANYWHERE next time for a shot.
So, that's the story. Thank you for your input. I took out the last part of the blog because it seemed that perhaps the wrong impression was made. I simply was saying how well Admiral was treated. I was saying that the Office is a kind one. The Tech was different from anyone heretofore. This is an isolated incident that will stay isolated because if it happens again after I request a private talk and another tech..that will be the backside of mine and Katie's furs headed out the door.
