This awful week is called “Take Your Cat to the Vet Week,” and I hate it! Especially because I had to go to the vet twice! Can you believe my human took me to the emergency vet on Sunday just because I had diarrhea? They could not find anything really wrong with me, so they gave me B12 shot. Then I had to sit next to some stinky dog while my human paid the bill. I was in my carrier, but still.
Then I had to go to my regular vet because the diarrhea did not clear up after a couple of days. That vet gave me some awful tasting liquid to take. I am being tortured.
My human really wanted to go to BlogPaws, but instead she has to stay home and wrap me up in a towel to get this awful stuff down my throat.
This “Take Your Cat to the Vet Week” deal was created because supposedly cats do not get checkups as often as they should. But you would not know that around here!
Cathy Keisha says
TW was sad that she didn’t get to meet your human. Word around Blogpaws was that you were very sick. I hope you are feeling better. When I needed meds, they made them tuna flavoredâ€”but it was an awful tuna flavor.

I know it is unpleasant, but your human means well.
Sparkle, darling, you need me to come down the I-5 and have a “discussion” with your Human about putting AWFUL stuff down your throat AND about discussing your personal and private bodily functions for all the world to hear.
I can be there in about 6 hours.
Scout and his mama says
I hope you feel better. Diarhea sounds just awful!! Sorry about the 2 vet visits.
I go every March to get my check up and then later in the month or April I have to get my teeth cleaned 🙁 Luckily I have not had to go for anything else(except that time the neutered me!)
Sparkle, we didn’t know you weren’t feeling well. You get better real quick please. We will be sending the biggest purrs and best positive thoughts your way. We are so sorry your Human didn’t get to go to BlogPaws, but congrats on your award.
Mark's Mews says
We unnerstand. One vet visit is one too many in OUR view. Necessary mebbe, but still too many.
I am back to congaratulate you on your Petties Win! That is just awesome!!!
Forty Paws says
Oh no Sparkle! A stinky butt and smelly liquid junk to stick in your mouth? And 2 trips to the v-e-t? Oh this is horrible! We are sending you tons of purrs and purrayers your way.
Fuzzy and Zoe says
Miss Sparkle, that really stinks! My brother Zachary used to get B12 shots when he was feeling poorly – they really seemed to perk him up. We ALL hope you are feeling better very soon! And it serves your human right to have to miss BlogPaws – if you’re being tortured, she should suffer, too.
Your friend, Fuzzy
Concats on the Petties!!!
You look pretty darn adorable all wrapped in that towel, but I’m sorry to hear you’re not feeling well! And having to take medication is no fun at all.
Oh Sorry about your week!!!
IÂ´m purring for you and wish your weekend be fine!
Tillie & Georgia says
While having the trots is no fun,
going to the vet (twice) is torture!!!!!
We purr you are OK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Purrs Tillie & Georgia
The Poupounette Gang says
Congrats on your Petties win!!!
Daisy the Curly Cat says
Sparkle, I am so sorry you have dire-rear. I hope you are feeling all better soon!
Devoted to Willow says
Ugh those are the worse weeks especially when there is a need to get medicine or shots. Sparkle there are no worries there is no Marco kitty it was a paw slip as it was ‘pose to Macro for they type of close-up photography. I should not type and groom at the same time.
I’m sorry you’ve had such an ordeal sweet Sparkle, but maybe the Pettie win will make you feel better…CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Pierro and Miles says
I agree with you. Going to the vet is not even on my list!
bonks for a restful week-end
Athena M says
Take your medicine Sparkle or you’ll lose weight from the diarrhea and those anorexic Super Model rumors will start! Hope you’re feeling better soon!
Sparkle, we really hope you will be all better soon. Bummer for Mom to have to miss BlogPaws, but she has her priorities straight.
Twice in a week, that really stinks, Sparkle! And hafing to take icky medicine too! I’m so sorry. I hope you feel much better soon, and I’m sorry your human hadded to miss Blogpaws.
Oh, that is outrageous, Sparkle! But we do hope you’re feeling better soon!
Layla Morgan Wilde says
Oh Sparkle, sorry you had a crappy week but listen, if you’re mom didn’t take you to the vet, you might be way sicker now. All our boys are purring in a barbershop quartet for you to feel better 🙂
We’re sorry you aren’t feeling well Sparkle and sure hope the icky medicine helps you feel better soon so you don’t have to go back to the vet again! We’re also sorry your human missed BlogPaws but we know she’s cares more about you than going there.
Max the Quilt Cat says
Oh… oh… you had too much vet for one week. Sorry… Hopefully next week will be better.
Heather and Fluffy says
Oh no, that’s terrible! BlogPaws looks like such an exciting event as well. If it’s any consolation, we won’t be going either. Just a tad too far away for us UK folk. Hope you’re feeling better, Sparkle! Hopefully, this will be the last vet visit for a while!
Ryker's Boyz says
FaRADaY: Why that’s…that’s….CRIMINAL!
Maxwell: *shudders* I been to da v-e-t TOO many times myself. I FEEL for you!
Pricilla - Famous SpokesGoat says
I am sorry you are not feeling well Sparkle and hope you feel better soon. Here the vet is soooooo far away we wait for the traveling clinic that comes through once a year and all of the Farm cats get their shots and a check up. The male person is less than happy to be hauling 4 Farm cats at once in his truck.
Yuck. You know there is such a thing as too much togetherness. I prefer it when the human is gone when she is supposed to do stuff to me. Feel better Sparkle!
I feel sad your Mom cannot go to Blog Paws. can you imagine all the swag she would have brought home for her? And getting sick to emphasize Take your Cat to the vet week is not something me would have thought of…Me hopes yous feels better soon.
Little One says
Get Well Soon!!!!
Hi Sparkle…I”m sorry you had to go to the V-E-T! My mom makes me go too. Look on the bright side though–at least you didn’t have to TOUCH the dog, and were protected in your carrier.
Oh no! We hope you situation is getting better! 😀
Oh dat’s right – it is take your cat to vet week. Never fear, M has my annual check up scheduled for October because that’s when I was adopted. Good reminder pal.
Oh, Sparkle, I’m so sorry your mom took you to the vet — twice, even. Hopefully you’ll feel better soon and get back to the important things in life: chasing small creatures, snubbing your food and waking people up before theya re ready to get out of bed.
Or maybe that’s just my cats 🙂
Toby & Leia says
Oh, we are so sorry that you aren’t feeling well, Sparkle. We hope all this clears up soon.
The Florida Furkids and Angel Sniffie says
We’re sorry you participated in this fun(?) even twice. We hope the icky medicine makes you feel better soon.

Hannah and Lucy says
We are sorry you have had to go to the vet TWICE Sparkle – we hope you are feeling better soon. The trouble is when we see a carrier we try to hide and only sigh with relief if we are left behind!! Of course if we see two carriers we know for certain we are DOOMED.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Father Tom says
Yeah, I’m with the Island Cats–who the heck came up with that noise? We know your mom is a great mom and doesn’t need a national week to tell her to look after you. Hope you’re feeling better.
The Island Cats says
Now who would come up with Take Your Cat to the Vet Week?? Did they want to torture us cats??
Sparkle, we’re sorry you aren’t feeling well and had to be tortured twice by going to the vet…we hope the icky liquid stuff helps.
Sparkle, so sorry to hear that you had to go to the VET, not once, but twice. Tell you human that
Since I am a Somali too, and you and I look like twins, I can tell you that Somali’s tummies are very sensitive to beef. I read your blog every day, so I’m pretty sure that you human doesn’t feed you beef, but just thought I’d pass that on. If I eat beef, the same thing happens to me. Lot’s of veterinarian’s don’t know that because they don’t see many of us Somali’s.
Hope you are better.
Spunky Doodle and Manny says
Poor Sparkle! Taking medicine is no fun at all–stressful for you and your owner, I’m sure. You have a very good mom so don’t give her such a hard time about taking the medicine that will make you better! Wonder what caused that.
Oh Sparkle, we are so sorry you are puny. That sure doesn’t sound like fun at all. You look just stunning on that towel. We are sending tons and tons of purrs that you get better really soon. Sorry Mom couldn’t go to Blog Paws but you are much more important that that. Take care and feel better.
Mr Puddy says
Miss Sparkle, I hope you feel better so soon. Purrs for you.
and I’m sorry for your human didn’t go to BlogPaws, but I’m happy in some way to know how much she love you : )
PS : You look so cute with the towel
We hoping you feel better soon! Our purrayers are with you! Rose just went to the v-e-t yesterday fur her shots … very stressful but she handled it like a champ!
Oh no! I’m sorry to hear you’re not feeling well, plus you have to take yucky medicine 🙁
Sending healing purrayers…
We take our pets to the vet twice a year for general check ups and the usual shots. There is no specific week for it, but it’s stressful anyway.
Feel better soon, Sparkle!
