One of the things I had to do last week was get a wellness check up from the vet. Because I’m a therapy cat, my annual check up includes having the veterinarian fill out a form. The form says that I’m healthy, easy to handle, and up to date on my vaccines. This trip, I needed a rabies vaccine. I got the Purevax three year this time, so I won’t need that again for a while!
I will say, I don’t like going to the vet that much! Well, if it just involved me being on my leash and visiting and having the staff make a big deal out of me, that would be okay. But they do really, super invasive things to me… like take my temperature! More than just about anything else, I hate having my temperature taken. Unfortunately the clinic does not do it by ear. They do it the old fashioned way, and I especially loathe it.
A weird marionette kitty hovered near the ceiling in the exam room, and I felt like it was mocking me.
While we waited for the vet to get the vaccine, I poked around and found treats! Even being violated by that thermometer doesn’t stop me from enjoying a treat or two!
It’s a good thing my human has quick hands!
I kind of squirmed about the vaccine too, until my human helped hold me still. Then I stopped struggling. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. That is usually the case when my human holds me still for something unpleasant. Well, the thermometer thing excepted.
Anyhow, other than being squirmy for shots and having my temperature taken, I was a very good kitty. The vet looked in my ears and mouth and felt me all over and said I was in great shape. So I’m done with my therapy cat wellness check up until next year!
