Daisy’s horrid, terrible, very bad day

Daisy’s horrid, terrible, very bad day

Ohai friends. I’m relaxing in my fluffy pink sleeping bag on account of I just had a very  horrid couple of days! Would you like to hear about it?

A few days ago, my Mommeh gathered me up and zipped me into my carrier. Earlier, she didn’t mention anything about any appointment or social visit on the calendar, so as you can imagine, this was quite a surprise for me. Anyway, look where I ended up: I was stunned and amazed to find myself at the veterinarian’s office!

There were a bunch of birds flying around for entertainment, but I was not lulled into a false sense of security. As you may remember, I am eleven years old now. This means I am considered a senior cat (even though I did NOT get a senior citizen’s discount). Once we get a little older, things can sometimes start to go wrong so even though it’s no fun, it is very important to have regular checkups to make sure everything is still working properly on the inside.

The doctor checked my ears, my eyeballs, my teeth, listened to my heart, and I am a little bit embarrassed to admit, he emptied my anal glands (but please do not tell anyone that part). Then he stole some of my blood to test–sucked it right out of my arm with a needle. I am very proud to tell you that I passed my blood test with flying colors! And I didn’t even study for it!

I thought I was all done, but there was more in store for me. Just two days later, I went back and had a dental cleaning. I slept through that procedure, so I do not remember what happened, but my teeth are all clean now. I checked, and I still have all of my teeth, too. The only thing I have to remember my ordeal by is this bald patch on my arm from the catheter. I would smile real big to show you my teeth, but the reflection off my pearly whites might blind you!

Since I would like to set a good example for other cats and dogs, I recommend that if you are past due for your annual routine veterinary examination, have your mom or dad schedule it for you now. Besides, if you act real nice at the vet’s office and do not growl, you will probably get a treat when you’re done!

  1. How terrible for you Daisy! I really hate going to the V.E.T.s too, and because of my diabetes I have to go a lot, even when I am on vacation down here in Florida.
    I am glad they didn’t steal any of your teeth. That is something to be proud of!
    Your furend, TK

  2. wow that does sound like a horrible day. did your vet give you the AARF discount (American Association of Retired Felines)?

  3. Thanks TK! At least my vet is a cats-only clinic, so no drooly dogs to worry about.

  4. I’m going to follow up to find out where my AARF card is. Must have gotten lost in the mail!

  5. Oh Daisy, you were so brave! So happy you passed with flying colors. We’ll bet your Mommeh was happy too. You are a beautiful, healthy senior kitteh. Thanks for reminding all of us about a check-up.

  6. Oh Daisy, I am HAPPY happy happy that you passed ll your tests without studying and that your teefs are gleaming white. I need the same thing so I will be having those tests too before long. xoxox

  7. My Mommeh was very surprised (and proud) when every single blood test result came back perfect. When I was younger I had a few things that came back “out of range” so this was great news!

  8. Katie, I’ll bet you will pass, too!

  9. It’s never fun to go to the vets, but it sounds like you were a good patient. I hope the treats were tasty. I’m glad you passed your tests with flying colors

  10. You are a better cat than I Miss Daisy. I had to go back on Saturday for my follow up tests after my hyperthyroid treatment. Well, let me tell you, I let them know just how I felt about being poked and prodded. I let them have it in the language of our people, but good! Meowm said she could hear me cussing up a blue streak all the way in the front of the building. And that doctor thought I would be good! Ha! She brought me back to Meowm wrapped up in a towel.

    Anyway, glad you passed you tests with flying colors and that your dental went well!
