Pot Roast

I can sure tell other favorite brovver is here!~  I got called a pot roast again!

Mom thought my, ahem....er...certain glands were in need of being expressed.  So she made a call to see if there were v-e-t hours and what they were. Dang if they weren't right when mom and other favorite brovver were ready to roll!  So he went to get the PTU while mom scooped me up.  That was her third attempt to get me.  I skidded away the first two.  I KNEW something was up.  I trusted her and came over to her chair whereupon brovver said "I have her PTU.  "Scoop up the Pot Roast" was announced,  Mom did.  I had to be carried off into the extremely wind driven rain.  Sideways rain it was so hard I was drenched in my PTU!  what with the wind.

Got there, asked for a potty patch (sanitary clip) and got one..and an anal gland expression. I was told I was OK with the glands. As it turns out,  I had some you-know-what was caught in my tail feathers, and that odor was what mom kept noticing along with a few marks on the kitchen floor that looked oily near the box.   Se made an assumption. So the patch was made, an expression was done just in case even though there was no actual need this time...and I got me some more probiotics too.  AND I had the company of OFB...Other Favorite Brovver, who carried me.  Mom said I feel like a load of bricks so she was glad not to have to carry me this time.   I hissed at her pretty well as she approached to pay for my visit. Punished her when we got back too by skittishness.  But we're friends again.

Relaxing after that awful v-e-t visit

Ooohhhh those glands... horrible things, I (Toby) feel your pain and indignation. And to be insulted and forced into the PTU - Pot Roast indeed!!! But, it's good that you are exhibiting the spirit of the season by forgiving your hoomins. PS: What's a potty patch? You can leave the answer here if you can't comment on our blog, we will check back later. Meowwwy Christmas!

You definitely want to be on good terms with Mom for Christmas! Jenna had to go to the vet today for a checkup and shot. She wasn't a happy camper, either.

I don't blame you for being mad at your human for a little while, Katie! I'm glad that's over, though, and you are looking forward to a nice Christmas with family.

Poor Katie, is that any way to treat a lady? And Pot Roast? That's just down right inappawpriate! We sure hope you are feeling better after all that, and get some extra scritches and treats.

Well at least you have your favorite brovvers there to make you forget about that trip to the vet.

Those Klingons are always causing trouble in the universe. Merry Christmas beautiful Katie!

Poor Dear!
Kozmo feels for you. He says it was not kind to call you a pot roast, (he gets called a Hefty Ham) when you are in a PTU.
Kozmo, Jo Jo and Cinnamon are going to the vet on Boxing Day. They need their shots while they are here on vacation. Kozmo also needs to get his ears looked at.
Kozmo sends you his LOVE

Oh my, Katie san, sorry you had to go to the vet! Your brother and mom should be on Santa’s naughty list for calling you pot roast and load of bricks hahaha. But glad you and your mom are friends again :-)
Love your beautiful Christmas card. Happy holidays to you and all your family!

Oh my little darlingest Pot Roast! What a terrible terrible thing to have to endure! You look pretty chill there in the After photo though, so I guess you were not toooooooo traumatized--just full of poutrage at the indignity (coincidentally, *I* had a little bout of poopy butt yesterday myself. Phffft. The Human was a little intrusive about it, but I told her to mind her own business.) Anyway, I am sure all that *interference* is over now and you are free to bask in the adoration of favorite brovver and other favorite brovver and mommy and all the rest. I hope you have the bestest cozy Christmas EVER! Maybe I'll see you areound midnight???? UTB? XOXOXOXO Spitty

CATachresis said...

And now you are sweet smelling and gorjus! Put the indignity out your mind, sweet Katie, and concentrate on which swain you want to dance through the tunnel with!! ❤️❤️❤️

Poor Katie! Expressed anal glands isn't QUITE the bestest Christmas present EVER but maybe it wasn't the WORSTEST either. Being called a pot roast is a "term of endearment" from your brovver you know. Maybe he will call you "Christmas Pot Roast" for the holidays?? I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas Eve Day dear Katie.

Love, Teddy

Katie, I get called "Fat Cat" by some humans. I just keep telling them I have big bones! Mom thinks I have some Maine Coon in me so that's why I'm just big all over. I wonder if it's a Tuxie thing???
Merry Christmas, Katie!

A visit to the vet?! That's an unusual Christmas present. :-) Hope the rest of your Christmas is more traditional.

What can we say? Sometimes, you just need certain things to happen... I, Sei-Chan. have been called "undercarriage" by my biggest fan. As I say, what can you say?

I am sorry you had to endure that torture sweet girl. I hope you, your Mom and all your favorite brothers have a wonderful Christmas. I love your card, is it OK to add it to my card post today on my blog? XO

Pot Roast!! Yikes, KI. Mom calls me a Meatloaf when she has to carry me. And sometimes she calls me a big Potato. I'm sorry you had to let the vet get so personal with you. I'm happy you're home safe and sound with all the folks who love you. Merry Christmas! xoxo

Love and licks,
Cupcake

Oh, poor Katie! We are sorry for that unnecessary rip to that place! Now that the ordeal is passed, we wish you, Mom and OFB a wonderful Christmas. Hugs!

Sasha said...

At least you are now home safe again. I find the trip to the vet terrifying. You are a brave kitty. I hope you are completely cured and do not have to go again for a long time.

Not quite the Christmas gift every cat wants, eh, Katie? But it's done now and you can enjoy the Yuletide in peace - if they let you! May you and your mum and all your family know only oeace and contentment this season and far into the future. God bless you.
