Now It Happened to Me!

I’ve been reading about my other fur people friends who have had to make trips to the doctor people.  Even Hemingway had to go see our doctor man, but I thought I was safe ‘cuz Mom didn’t mention anything and there wasn’t any scribbling on that calendar thing on the wall.

The other night she brought up my “carry me out of the house” holder.  I was skeptical at first but she just put it down and walked away.  When she didn’t do anything more about it, I figured she brought it up so I could sleep in it without Hemingway bothering me.

I sure hope they have room service at this hotel.

Today Mom got home early from work and first thing I knew, she put me in the “carry me out of the house” holder and took me out to her car.  Hemingway stayed in the house and I swear I heard him laughing.  We went for a short ride but I let Mom know I was not happy at all with this adventure.  Then when we got to the VCA Bloomington Animal Hospital (http://www.vcahospitals.com/bloomington/home) I announced my arrival loudly and firmly!  I’m not sure why the humans in there were laughing at me.  Even Mom was giggling!  I was trying to sound very ferocious!

Now, take a look at this:

Copy of P1020827See that hand?  That hand belongs to Jeff and I just know he made the scale say I weigh lots more than I do.  He claims I weigh a little over 15 pounds.  Well, if you take your hand away, Jeff, you might discover I’m actually a lean 11 pounds.  Hemingway…..you better check and see if Jeff did the same thing to you.  I think Jeff just wants our doctor man to tell us to go on diets!

I heard a noise in the hall.  I think we better get out of here!

I'm showing all my readers where the doctor man gave me a shot!  He did it without my permission.

I’m also not speaking to Mom right now.  She told the doctor man to give me a manicure and a pedicure.  I thought that meant I was going to get some neat fish or something.  When I found out he was going to take me out of the room so I couldn’t see Mom, I knew I was in trouble.  So I yelled.  And I yelled.  And I yelled.

Mom tried to take a picture of me when the doctor man came back with me but she said she was laughing so hard that she couldn’t hold the camera still.  She said she heard me throughout the building.  She says to apologize for the poor quality of this picture, but I say she shouldn’t have taken it anyway so it serves her right!

I was really a hand full for the doctor man.

So, that’s how my Thursday went.  How was yours?  By the way, the doctor man said I was very healthy and that I didn’t have any problems…..other than not liking to come visit him!

  1. So you did not have a Thankful Thursday, but we bet your mom did when she found out you are healthy. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. We all had to go to the vet on Tuesday – Binga and Boodie for checkups and me ’cause I “go feral” when they come back from the vet, but I’m not as bad if I go with them. They checked out as healthy too… and Binga had to have her blood taken from a back leg, which means she was misbehaving too much to have blood taken from a neck vein!

  3. Ha ha ha poor Shake. The Dr.man was just trying to keep you healthy. It is scary to go to his house tho, all those animal smells. Have mom give you a treat for making everyone laugh with your singing???? lol. Pam, it is so hard on us their humans to see them in such distress. The car ride is such an ordeal such mournfull cries. How do they make those sounds? One would think they are being abused. I am not sure who is stressed more with a trip to the Dr. man the cats human or the cat. lol

    1. Mom here…….it is stressful and I’ve never heard Shakespeare make those noises before. However, it’s also amazing how quickly they forget the whole event. He’s happy as a clam now. Both my boys are such wonderful companions!!!

  4. Glad to know you are in good health! All three of us went to the vet last Saturday too. We sang the warrior song in the car (I posted it). That didn’t deter our humans though 😦 They also told me I was a little fat at 14. Hmpf.

    1. Did someone push down on your scale too? Mom says she can’t take both of us to the doctor man at the same time ‘cuz it would be too hard. I guess it’s better that we go separately ‘cuz we would probably be laughing at each other too much when the doctor man was poking us and looking at us. 🙂

  5. Well it sounds like you made yourself KNOWN at the doctor guy’s place from the minute you arrived until you finally got back in your car! That’s what I do….at least when I first arrive – just to make sure they NOTICED I’m there. I’m glad you got a clean bill of health. I think they DO cheat when they weigh us – those hands are heavy!!!

  6. Oooo those naughty vet hoomans. Whee has been to them many times and does not approve at all of their behaviors! You don’t know humiliation until they subject you to the indignity of the thermometer whee can tell you!

    Take our advice. Next time pee on efurrything you can including the hoomans and chew whatever is in reach, including the hooman!

    1. Somehow we get the feeling that if we did all that Mom would not be happy with us at all. We prefer to “sing” about our displeasure. It’s just a good thing that we’re healthy so we don’t have to go over there all the time. We hope you guys stay healthy too so you can stay away from that thermometer thing. That really is humiliating, isn’t it? Purrs and soft paw pats to all of you! 🙂
