V-E-T Visit!

"I had a very traumatic day this week. I had to go to the V-E-T! I hate this cardboard PTU! It is old and it smells of the V-E-T!" (Mom has tried to buy better PTU's but then she can't get us into them unless they are top loaders......)
"I just hate this cardboard PTU......I can barely breathe when it is closed! I hyperventilate, and shake uncontrollably, and cry "Help me, Help me", really loud when I am in it. I am really close to suffocating in this thing!"

"Mom always takes me out of the box when we get to that little waiting room at the V-E-T, and she tries to comfort me. It does not work......I must hide my face and try to pretend this torture is not happening to me again!"

"No, mom! I can not take my face out of your jacket! It is too scary here!"

"Oh, no, here we go......I have to get poked and prodded. My heart is fine, I tell you! My lungs are fine! I have two good kidneys! Don't you see how clean and pristine my furs are? Just for the record, clean furs won't get you out of getting your shots......in one shot went in my butt-ock, and then the nerve.....the V-E-T squirted the other shot up my nose!!"

"When we got home I was so traumatized that I had to do a really long session of toe picking. That helps me calm down a little......till next time. And I hear there is a next time.....the V-E-T stole my bloods and I have to go back to get my teeth cleaned!! Mom! Mom!.....pleeeaase don't make me go back!"

"Bear had to go to the V-E-T too. Bear is not smarter than the average Bear......yet. He was so excited to go in the car. Bear is too young to know any better........poor Bear."

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

Oooo you have my sympathy. Poor dear! I had to go to the dentist yesterday and have to go back next Friday! And it won't be just for a clean :( I need a big big filling. Cats don't have those.

Why on earth did the V-E-T squirt something up your nose????

You look pretty scared in the box. When I tried to take my pusscats in a cardboard box they chewed and scratched through it. Ooops I shouldn't give you ideas....


Under-chin tickles.

We're sorry you had to go to such a scary place to get your bloods stoled and your butt shot. But we're glad you didn't suffocate in the box.

Now, Bear, he probably gets biscuits to keep him happy and coming back. Maybe if they offered sardines to cat patients, you wouldn't be so scared?

Babs (Beetle) said...

Oh JB, I know just how you feel!

I DO NOT LIKE THE VETS!
I DO NOT LIKE THE CAR!

Did you see the importance of what I just said? I am so scared, I sometimes have an accident in my carrier! I feel for you and will purr for you when you have to go back.

Purrs, Sukie x

Hi, JB!
Going to the Vet sure was not a good experience to you! Glad to hear you are healthy! Good luck with that cleaning of your teeth thing!
Bear is soooo cute!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Evie/VampyVictor said...

JB I was in much sypathy of yoru pictures in your Mommas jacket.. I wanted to rescue you but I just kept knocking my head every time I tried to jump through the screen :(

heheh Momma was laffing bout your stinky cardboard PTU.. you really has to learn to go inside the nicer ones, at least you can hose them down :))

The Island Cats said...

Oh, JB...we're sorry that you had to endure such torture...but at least now you know you are healthy...'cept for the teeth cleaning thing...that doesn't sound like much fun...

We hope you got lots of treats after your ordeal...

Tracey and Huffle said...

Oh poor JB! You should try what I did last time mum took me to the v-e-t: I pooped in my crate. I'm SURE I heard mum say I never have to go back.

Sen, Tama and Tom said...

Vet visits are a lot of hard work! Tom and Tama-Chan had to go recently for their shots, and Sen-Chan is up for his visit next week. Aaaaauuuugh!

Snowball said...

Poor JB. Why is it that you needed to go to the V-E-T? I have never had any jab up my nose before and that sounds SCARY!!!

Bear will soon learn how scary V-E-Ts are.

Peesss: Bear will definitely win if we ever play tug of war cos firstly, I am smaller and ligther than him and secondly, he is a puppy and I am a senior. I doubt he know the importance of being nice to seniors like me...

Anita said...

Oh my God! It was horrible visit!!!
Poor JB, I understand you... I will visit the horrible vet coming soon...

Fin said...

Oh Noooos! I hate the VET! I have a side loader ptu and the VET suggested putting it with the tiny hole facing up and then dropping me in back paws first and it works... stupid VET.

Spooky said...

Oooh, I was scared just reading about your ordeal, JB!

Like Fin, my people stand my PTU on it's end and then shove me through the opening on top. When we're at the VET's, they have to close the PTU 'cause that's the only time I actually want in there ("Take me home!")!

4 Boys and a Lady said...

JB, we know how scary the V-E-T is sometimes. It broke our heart to read your post! It sounds like you're very healthy, though, so we're happy!

Bear is so sweet to not know about the V-E-T yet. Nice to meet you, Bear! We've been gone so long we didn't get to greet you when you were first introduced. We went back and read all about you. Our mom even told her friend that she may want to get a doggy like you.

Love,
Nermal, Nico, Virgil, Westley, & Mags.

P.S. Westley blushed from your comment yesterday! Thank you!

Daisy said...

Oh noes! I'm sorry you had to endure such terrible torture, JB. A little toe-picking always makes everything feel better.

We use a Sherpa carrier that opens at the top or the front.

the 4 Bs said...

hi JB, we're sorry that your vet experience was so traumatic. we actually like our vet cuz everyone there is nice to us. maybe Bear will be happy at the vet too.

thanks for your beautiful card. we love seeing all of you on it!

woofs.

Cat with a garden said...

Uh oh, the V-E-T! The first time I went I loved it and checked out every corner. Then they chipped me and gave me shots and did all sorts of horrible things. Now I am a lot less excited about it. At least I don't cry in the carrier the whole time like Chilli does. We are furry glad you are healthy, JB. That's the most impawtant thing! Let's wait and see what Bear thinks of the vet after a couple of visits, har, har, har.

Clover said...

Oh Poor JB! It sounds like such a traumatizing experience! I am glad you are home safely now. Don't think about your next trip until it happens, ok?
Bear looks so cute in the car!
Love Clover xo
P.S. I can't remember if I told you that I got your card - thank you! It is so cute!

Oh Bear ... ignorance is bliss sometimes! lol

Sorry you had such a traumatic time, but glad you're back home now.

Two Sisters said...

How horrible! A trip to the vet is no fun at all!

Bear will learn about the terrors of the vet but he is still young.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Poor JB :( Having to go to the V E T to be tortured. I'm sorry you have to go back again to be tortured even more. Could you get Bear in the PTU and trick your Mom into taking Bear to the V E T instead of you?

Deetz said...

Oh, JB how tramatic......I hate the vets too....maybe we could run away and never go to the doctor again.....want too?

SophieKitty said...

Bummer, JB! Goin' to the vet is such a drag. I give mommie the back of disrespect after we get home from an appointment.

Dannan and The Girl said...

Oh no! I hate the V-E-T, too, JB. It's terrible that you had all those invasive things done to you! And what's with the stuff up your nose???

Our local SPCA has those PTUs. Would it help if we sent you a new one?

I hope you got some good eatables for dinner today to make up for having to go to that awful place!

Brown dog kisses,
Dannan and Nursemaid

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh I hate going to the V-E-T too (even more so after the pretty lady doctor resigned)... Silly Hershey does not mind going there though cos she thinks it's an outing. Pups...

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

What torture, JB. I am so sorry you had to go through that awful experience!! You have better had received lots of lovin and treats!!!!

Haz yoor mommeh tried one of da SOFT ptu's? Hansel haz ta be in da ptu caz she doesna trust him- but I get ta be on a harness an wander da car. Most of da tim i seep on da back seat.

MedaM said...

I am sorry that V-E-T visit was so traumatic for you but all is well that ends well. By the way, you see, it was not scary too much. I have to say that no matter of all you look so cute on every photo. I hope you won’t be jealous if I say that Bear is also cute.

Lorianna said...

Oh, poor, sweet little Jelly Bean! I hope you have recovered from your scary ordeal! At least your Mommy took you out of the PTU to comfort you. That's always nice. I will keep you in my thoughts as you get your teeth cleaned. You won't even remember it, I promise honey.
Big Hugs and Smoochies,
Lorianna

Parker said...

Awwww, poor JB. I hate the vet too!!

Hana said...

Bear is not wise yet, but he will be with time.

I don't suppose a leash would work instead of a box? I know some cats are okay with leashes. What does PTU stand for?

Everycat said...

Oh poor JB! What a dreadful ordeal. How about one of those wire top loading carriers? We won't go into the box or closed in ones either, they are so stuffy. I shake uncontrollably when I go to the vet too.

UH-oh, I have to go to the V-E-T this week too.

My sympathies. You know what to do.

Major cattitude for everybody!!

Pippa said...

Bear has such a pretty face.

When I go to the V-E-T, master and I always walk into town because master the first time I went he didn't want me to associate going in my Landy with nasty experiences.

But the walk is always fun, and it means I get to leave soooooo many pee-mails too.

Pedro said...

JB,

You look so teeny tiny in the picture with the V-E-T. I feel your pain kitty! I hate going to the V-E-T too! Thankfully, I don't have to go in a box but I still do shake uncontrolably!
