Katie went to the v-e-t today to get her claws cut and to get a shot for her allergies. I have never had a moments problem with my girl going to or at the v-e-t till now. I had a tech I have never met. When he took her to get her claws cut and to be weighed, I could HEAR her growling and hissing. I peered through the window and saw he had her scruffed for the claw cutting. I can understand that but be GENTLE! Jason or the others never hurt her. He had to have! And when he plucked her out of the carrier in the exam room, he was going to scruff her then and I said please..don't do that. So he hauled my baby out and carried her slung over his forearm like an old rag. Her hind quarters and everything from her arms back hung with no support. She hissed and growled when she came back to the exam room. I asked him if he was a dog person and he said he was (about 19 yr old I would say) and he said he liked them best. He was honest. Said he didn't like cats that were were mean. I asked what was that as I had not met one. He said the ones who hiss and growl (like poor Katie just did) Well, hells bells..no WONDER they are mean to him if he treats them so roughly. I told him that the cats he referred to were scared or feral, one.
