The V.E.T.

Rocky: All right, already, since I pride myself on being a CEO who listens to others, I took your (unanimous) advice and went to the v.e.t. yesterday. Here's the good and bad news:

I got wrapped in a towel and put in a Jeep where my mom squished the daylights out of me while I fought and trembled and moaned all the way to the stabby place, where I got probed and poked and something stuck up my behind which was then stabbed with a needle and I was sent home with pink yucky stuff that my human artist has to sit on me to get down my unwilling throat twice a day. I hope you're all happy now!

Dr. Shew said I have a fever and an upper respiratory infection, which is airborne and highly contagious, so I'm still quarantined.

The only good news is every time the pink yucky is squirted down my throat, I get Temptations ... So how about some purrs & prayers that this yucky stuff will start tasting like tuna juice? Blechh!!

I always wanted a way to make the yucky pink stuff taste better for my babbies!

We're glad you saw the vet and that what you have is treatable.

We'll purr about your healing and the yucky pink stuff. Any chance your mother could add tuna juice to the medicine?

At least you get treats. I don't get any such thing even when I take yucky stuff like a good cat.

Well done for being so brave, going to the v-e-t and setting a fine example to the rest of us. The pink yucky stuff is only twice and day and that bottle looks small so the ordeal will soon be over and you'll be good as new !!

Sorry. We don't know of any incantation that will make pink yucky stuff taste like tuna. don't suppose your mom could add her own tuna juice?

Sorry you have to take the pink yucky stuff. Mom says, if your bean has laxatone, it comes in tuna flavors and it's sticky, so maybe you could lick some off of your Mom's fingers and get that icky taste out of your mouth? Or your beans could put a littl on the tip of your nose, and you'll lick it off of that!

We're sorry that you have to take the ucky medicine, but we do want you to get better. It's good that your mom gives you treats afterwards. Maybe more medicine will get you more treats? ;-)

Max said...

Can you believe that the Cat Who Came Before Me *liked* that pink stuff?!?!?! But that cat took meds like they were candy, the People never had to fight her on them, and the last year she had LOTS of pills to take. I cured them of that delusion, that cats are easy to medicate.

+1 on the crunchy treats, though!

Who would have thought something that's such a pretty pink color would taste so yucky? Feel better soon, Rocky!

Cliff and Olivia said...

Hi! Nice to meet you.

I get that upper thing about once a year, but the humans get me pills that they wrap in liver pate - and down they go. I agree that the pink stuff looks yucky!

It's not fair that all medicine tastes yucky. Toona flavour would be much better.
We are purring for you to feel better Rocky.

I feel your pain with the visit to the vet, but I am glad that you went and that you know what is wrong.

Mom is singing, "Just a spoon full of Temptations makes the medicine go down." My mom is silly!

Karen Jo said...

I am glad that you went to the vet and got medicine to help you get well again. It's a shame that the pink stuff is so yucky, but it will be gone soon. It's great that you get Temptations afterward. Get well soon!

EWWW the yucky pink stuff. We've been known to spit it all over the walls! Mom says we make it harder on ourselves when we fight it. We think it might be OK if we got temptations.

Temptations is a good side-effect.

Junior and Orion said...

I don't like the pink yucky stuff either, but at least I feel better when it is all gone!
