Updating From The Roasterie - Our V.E.T. Visit

Mommy here - No "innernet" is awful. We have a weak signal at our home, but it takes a "squillion" years to go from page to page, we read your blogs, but no commenting. I took Parker and her sibs to the V.E.T. Friday for their last wellness checks and to be evaluated for medications to travel. Since the drive is so long the decision was made to use medication. We are using a combination of a sedative and a pain killer. It's given via liquid through a syringe toward the cheek so it is absorbed by swallowing and through the tissue in the mouth. The sedative lasts about 6 hours and then the pain killer provides a calming effect for an additional 4-6 hours. By then we should be at our destination.
Parker asked that I show them being tortured Friday. Who am I to refuse?
Here's the best kitty vet clinic in the world.


Waiting for the doctor.
Not happy, not happy at all.

Rudy wants everyone to know he does not at all mind being in a PINK P.T.U.

Puff is not amused. Not even a little bit.

She's even less amused getting her Fpl/Uri Intranasal Vaccine

Parker is getting skritchies here, she's really having fun, not the least bit upset - she bounced out of the P.T.U. and started to flirt with everyone!
All four kids are healthy and fine. AND they have all dropped a little weight, the diet is working! They are a little un-nerved at all of the activity in the house. We will be fine - and Henry Helton, we're gonna be neighbors! Exit 83 off of I-75 is VERY close to where we will be living in O Hi O!
I don't think any of the kitties will be waving at you though, I think they will be taking some serious cat naps!
Thanks for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. We'll see you later, now back to our chaos that is currently in progress.

I am very excited that we will be neighbors. Maybe you could sneak over sometime. Hehe. I will still wave at you anyway even though you will be sleeping.

Glad the vet visit went fine. Moving is always tough. Wish you the best of times in Ohio :)

Mosaic Cats said...

So nice to hear an update, sort of. We just saw your post over at Skeez's on the tiara photo. Moving does SUX. We were wondering last night in bed (who knows why! TOO HUMID TO SLEEP) if it was a one day's drive for you. Sounds like it. That is GOOD. Our move took four nights in motels and 13 hours in prison on the final day to get here. That REALLY SUX with four cats and a dawg. It's hard to think of you going thru it cuz it gives us flashbacks (mostly Mosaic Lady!!!)
Be safe and know a bunch of cats and their persons are thinking of you all and wishing you happy and safe trails!

Best wishes for a calm and uneventful move - I'm glad everyone's okay!

Sounds like some good drugs! Also sounds like the rite way to take a long drive. The next time mom and dad want to take us waaaaay up north we'z gonna ask fur some of dat stuff. Have a safe and stress free (as much as possible) move.

Benjamin Fuzz said...

dial up stinks...hard to believe it's what we all had to start!

i'm glad you've got good drugs for your trip. when you wake up you will be there.

i bet your mom and dad will arrange it so when you get there, you'll be all comfy and ready to climb into bed with them. the exploring starts the next day...when you wake up refreshed from your trip and ready for ADVENTURE! (or at least that's my little fantasy for you...)

love!!!!!

My Mum was very impressed that your beans were able to get all 4 of you to the vet at one time. Mum has enough trouble wrangling me into my carrier and to the vet by myself!

I hope your trip is stress free. I know you all will love your new home, it looks beautiful and just keep chanting "I will be able to see Mummy everyday" - that should make any hardships worth it : )
