All three of us jumped in the Toyota this morning….well I didn’t jump in….more like I slunk way back in my carrier singing the song of my country folk…..extremely loudly.
Shoko couldn’t watch me being taken to the vet. So she turned away.
I really did not want to get out of the carrier at the vet’s office but after some shaking and carrying on, I removed myself from the carrier and headed for mom’s armpit….its dark there and I didn’t have to see the horrible view.
In walked the vet and mom started to talk with him. It was a man and I hate strange men! What a horrible predicament. I thought I’d take a peek at him, so I slyly pulled my head out of mom’s armpit. Well, hello there!! *batting eyelashes*
Dr. Jamieson proceeded to say how much he loved Flame Point Siamese and had a Flame point at home. What a nice man. He listened to my heart and looked at my bald spot. Such a kind and gentle man.
My skin was red and quite itchy. Dr. Jamieson said I was allergic to something new I’d given her. I said I’d given her and Shoko 1 can of wet food a week. He said this was probably the culprit and if I quit giving them the food and Kali was still scratching to come back in about 2 weeks. So Mr. Wonderful…I mean Dr. Jamieson gave me a cortisone shot. Mom also wanted a senior blood panel done. So Dr. Jamieson took me in the back and I had a blood test…..no biggy…Dr. Jamieson was so gentle. He explained to mom he works at the vet part time but used to run his own Cat Clinic in Vancouver. Too bad he only works part time.
When we got home I was exhausted….more from the disgusting car ride than anything. I told Shoko about Dr, Jamieson and told her she would be one lucky kitty if she got him for a vet. She didn’t believe me, I could tell by the way she said,”Ya right…..a nice vet and a MALE yet.”
Dr. Jamieson phoned while mom was out and said I possibly have a urinary tract infection so they are running a culture and they will call on Monday. Now isn’t he thoughtful.
