Howdy Doody!! It’s that time again……….time for me to head off to the vet to get my bloods checked – make sure my thyroid medicine is still doing its’ magic. It’s been four months since my last checkup at which time I was doing OK and was “within range”. I’ve been just a bit persnickety lately about my pills though………I have to admit it…….I’ll confess – some days I just plain do NOT want to take it. Mom will try a maximum of THREE times a day (that’s three sometimes wasted pills!) to give it to me.
Anyway, I’ve mostly been good so I’m thinking I’ll “ace” this test tomorrow. I’m feeling good too – been a little more perky than I used to – and having some great lap naps which makes my Mom happy as she loves it when I fall asleep up on her legs when she’s in the recliner.
I’ve talked about my vet before – he’s great and his whole staff spoil me rotten……….what’s not to like then? It’s the danged CAR RIDE……..that’s my only problem. Once I’m there I’m dandy – but I really HATE being in the car. I know – I’m a big baby aren’t I? You’d think that after 15 years of heading off to the vet in the car I’d remember that it’s NO BIG DEAL wouldn’t you?
I’ll just hope as always that we get in and out without encountering any hostile animals. My vet is a dog and cat clinic – I have no problem with other cats but some of the dogs are big enough to be miniature horses and they are rowdy and leaping around and barking LOUD and neither my Mom nor this ginger boy like that hoopla. We’re the FIRST appointment in the morning though so hoping it will be QUIET. I’m a QUIET kinda guy – know what I mean?
So are you “good” when you go to the vet or do you dread it??
