Uh oh...

Mom is already beginning to feel stressed as she was instructed to give me two treats (medicated) for tonight, and two of the same in the morning before taking me n to the v-e-t .  Going to get my nails done and a potty patch which I hope no boycats see here!  How embarrassing!  I have long bloomers and one must go with fashion sometimes!

Mom here:  I detest having to give her this stuff, all because another place terrorized her with rough handling.  We seem to be 'paying the price'of that forever!  I hope the two tonight- IF she'll eat them, will not make her not take the two in the morning.  Talk about borrowing trouble, I am a good example of it.   She has the two tonight to start the process as she is a 14 pound girl and needs slightly more meds to be completely calm.

Mom says she wishes she could send this window stained glass rendering of me to the v-e-t instead of ME.

Mom has beautiful  custom art by Anna of all three of we girls.  They always hang in the windows.

I hope all goes as planned sweet Katie, for you and for your Mom!

Oh Ms Katie, shame on that other place for making you scared! I used to be scared to go to the dentist, but then I found nice dentists and now I not scared. Maybe the new place you're going to will be nicer. Take your meds for your mommy, she loves you so much and so don't we all. Smooches sweetie

Be brave Katie...Be Brave...!
Open that lovely mouth of yours,
and..swallow!
It will make you feel a whole lot
better..Promise! :o).

We are so sorry you have to take those medicated treats, Katie, and that you have to go to the v-e-t tomorrow. We are purring and praying for you and Mom, and that everything goes smoothly tomorrow. We love you, sweet friends.

Paws and fingers crossed, Katie, that all goes smoothly. Hugs to your mom.

It's not optimal, but this needs to be done. Resign yourself to the fact that you are helping your furbaby, and not in the past with those idiots. Calm your mind, or Katie will pick up on your vibes. I know it's easy to say, but I have to do the same thing to give Angel her shots once a week. I'll do anything for my cats, and we know you will too. You can do this!

I wish I lived near you. I bet I could trim your nails with no meds needed. XO

Take those treats like a good girl, Katie, and your trim will be done in no time.

Sounds like your visits to the vet are just as exciting as ours! Good luck with the meds! We have good luck with liquid meds, but pills are a perennial no go. xoxo

The J-Cats said...

Well, if We were you, Katie, We would make cooperation conditional on Extra Treats!
Good luck with the pawdicure and about the (ahem) other thing - least said, soonest mended.

Laila and Angel Minchie said...

We are rooting for you, Katie, that all goes well!

John Bellen said...

Perhaps as you visit the new vet, Katie, you will see that this one is quite nice, and you may be able to lessen the treats you get before each visit.

We send lots of purrs for all to go well with Katie!

Poor Katie. And Mom too! Vet visits are unpleasant without special considerations to deal with. And that's beautiful artwork, too. I hope all goes well tomorrow.

That sounds scary. Sending prayers.

Katie, I have not yet gone to a vet since I immigrated. I will NOT let anyone pick me up (I bite). I have a fit (and bite) when ANYONE tries to restrain me and I have a fit when Mom puts me in my harness or in the carrier. Mom says she will try in the spring...We are starting to "practice" now and my carrier lives in the bedroom.

I'm wishing you good luck with everything, Katie!

Katie san, I’m sorry you have to take the med because of how you were handled at the other vet. I hope the visit will go well tomorrow.
I love the stained glass artwork very much :-)

Katie, my dear friend - I'm eating a pill in the morning, getting my ear rubbed with some gel, and goopy stuff mixed in my food. Hang in there! ~ IZA

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh Katie - I'm so sorry you have to go through all of this but DARNIT you must. We all have to keep up with our medical stuffs and nail trimming and (apparently) bloomer trimming (well I don't have to but those with longer furs do!).........just be brave and take your meds (I know they are icky). We never get over a BAD experience so the meds will just allow you to be chilled out!

Good luck...........Hugs, Teddy

Dearest Katie Isabella,
Hope things went well for you and with you!
Yesterday, on top of a dreary thundering Sunday, we managed to give all six of our kitties their treatment in the neck for avoiding flees and Heartworm. They HATE it and especially Spooky never trusts my hands, often even refuses his treats as he thinks, yeah, there she comes again and she will hold me! So glad that is over with but too dreadful thinking about another Heartworm encounter. We lost one sweet boy at age 3.5 and way too young, because of it.
Sending you hugs,
Mariette

Oh darling Katie! You poor little thing! I hope things went okay for you this morning. I *really* empathize!
The Human had to get gabapentin down me this morning (she mixed the powdery contents of a capsule in tuna water which I lapped for a minute till I realized she'd *doctored* it). Then she mixed some into baby food (I wasn't having any of THAT), so then she mixed it all into some Fancy Feast and that I ate some of). And then I tried to bite the nice vet lady anyway when she was fool enough to stick her fingers in my mouth (c'mon! she was just ASKING for it!)
Since September I've been taking thyroid meds, and I am supposed to be on kidney diet cat food but so far that's been a fail. We got some new flavors at the stabby place today but 20:1 I won't be eating it. To her credit, pretty vet lady said to let me have a few days of peace and quiet and Fancy Feast before trying again. We'll see, eh?
Getting older is a real pain, eh my sweet? And Harry and Meghan think THEY'VE got problems!

Cupcake said...

I hope the medicine treats are delicious, KI. Paws crossed that you get in, get taken care of, and get out without too much stress.

Love and extra licks,
Cupcake

Taking medicated treats can such because they taste awful and can be so stressful

We hope all went well, Katie.

dellgirl said...

I've got my fingers crossed, hoping your visit to the V-E-T goes well this time. While they're doing their thing with you, think of me over here in Texas dancing and singing to help calm you down. That's what I do with Grandson Jace, he hates doctors' visits too.

Wishing you (and Mommy) all the best sweet Katie!

dellgirl said...

OOOpps, I'm a day late but, that's ok. The well wishes are the same no matter what day it is.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Leo: I know I'm late, but I sure hope, Katie dearest, that you got to that nasty place and back safe and sound and with as little fuss as possible! Snug hugs!!! Purring my best that everything turned out well! I have a nice warm spot in my mancat cave just for you to recover in if you want, I'll bring you treats and nip and anything your heart desires! Smooches!

We hope your visit went well, Katie Isabella. We can send you some [non-modified] treats for your trouble! And hugs.

Katie we know what you are meowing about. Brofur Rumpy Bump and Einstein both had a bad time last time they went to the vet. We are not sure what happened as we have been going there forever with no problems but maybe a new tech or?? Anyhow we are purring hard for you
