Well friends as I reported last week, Dad's downtime resulted in my V.E.T. time. I have no idea why I have to be hauled off when I feel fine. I even zoomied in the hall the other night.
I was enjoying a nice nap when I was plucked and stuffed in my PTU (Prisoner Transport Unit) and carted off to see The Vet. Dad remembered to spray the carrier with my feline hormone spray which I like.
Once I was trapped it was clear I would not be escaping so I settled in for the trip. Dad said I was a perfect little passenger. I concur. When my prison door was opened, I came right out onto the scale (I admit I like the scale and I enjoy lying in it while we wait for The Vet). My weight was good, not much of a change since my last visit. Mom frets about me losing weight due to my Hyperthyroidism all the time.
I didn't hiss much when he groped me. I didn't bite or growl much either. My Vet card says "Special Handling" and the last Vet's card it said "Aggressive" and I typically don't like to disappoint. Today I took a mellow approach, to throw them off.
They took me to the back and gave me a hit of the gas so they could take my blood, and lord knows what else, without incident. I'm happy to report that my thyroid was good and everything looked solid. My kidney numbers were a bit too high still and he mentioned about a special diet (there better be ample and tasty gravy!). He mentioned adding another pill to my current regime...
"What?" I meowed, and then laughed. I mewed to tell him that I had refused his "regime" and was still doing fine! I said no to his pills and instead my parents have added a tasty treat with a crunchy center. Fin Pockets by Greenies they are called. I laugh in the face of your pills!
I don't need to have any medicine when I have my Mom who lovingly adds Flavor Enhancing Shrimp Powder to my meal. Take that buddy!
::Mom Whispers:: Thank Cod for Pill Pockets! She gets her pills twice a day tucked inside. The Shrimp powder is a supplement for reducing her ... hm something bad for her kidney. I forget now what exactly, maybe phosphate. He wants her to start a kidney food, she had some tonight with a mixed review. He also wants her to take some other kidney supplement. Whew! It's not easy getting old. Oh and she has to go back for a dental cleaning. I'm sure she'll love that.
Mom? Who are you talking to?
No one. I was just going to tell your friends you did a guest post at PawTalk is all.
