Easy Like Sunday - I Hope!

Hi everyone. I have had a rough few days. First I had to go to the V.E.T. for my check up and they shot me - twice! It was time for my Rabies shot and my FELV/FRCP-C shot. I was shot in each of my back hips and they made me sore and sleepy. You can see below I was sucking up the sympathy big-time yesterday. I was even given a whole can of stinky goodness! I weigh 11 pounds 1 ounce and I am very healthy. I have good toofies and gums, so I don't need a dental!

Mommy and Daddy tricked us into our P.T.U.'s (That stands for Prisoner Transport Units Island Cats!) by letting us out on the deck then bringing us in one by one and stuffing us in! Diamond was watching over us while Daddy brought the car around. We were not very happy.

Here we are at the V.E.T.'s I am giving the hairy eyeball to a Chihuahua named Mickey who thought he was tough. The lady in the picture was waiting to pick up her new kitten who had just been spayed.
A close up of me and my hairy eyeball look.
Powder was very brave and didn't cry very much. She tried to be Zen like me. She weighs 6 pounds and is also very healthy. She doesn't need a dental cause her toofies are good too! Puff weighs 11 pounds (I have a whole ounce on her!) and her toofies are great! The V.E.T. said that we must have very good genes.
And then they examined Rudy. His toofies are NOT OK. He has gingivitis and has to have a dental in a few weeks. He's the biggest of all of us, he weighs a very Mancatly 13.8 pounds. The V.E.T. said that we all weigh just about what we should. No diets are necessary!
The poop that they stole from us was negative for bad things. We were happy about that. The V.E.T. said that we were the most well-behaved kitties he had ever met. None of us hissed or tried to run away from him while we were being examined. Well, maybe Rudy hissed just a little, but that was when the V.E.T. was poking at his butt! Mommy likes this V.E.T. His name is Dr. Joe. He and his wife, Dr. Wendy seem to know their stuff when it comes to kitties.

Diamond tried to give me a kiss when we got home and were released. I tried to give him "The Paw of Death."
Then I took a bath and a nap. The nap lasted most of Saturday which was probably good because blogger wouldn't let me on my blog. What was up with that? It wouldn't let me on a lot of blogs as a matter of fact. I think blogger must have had to go the the V.E.T. and have shots too!

Look at this! That lovely little Tabby, Abby thinks I am a cool cat! Thanks Abby, I think you are a pretty cool kitten your own self!
I hope every kitty has a very easy Sunday. I plan to have a few naps and some snuggle time with Daddy. I deserve it!

Wow, Parker...after a day like you had, you all deserve a big rest! Mom says she couldn't imagine taking all of us to the V.E.T. at the same time! Glad your visit went well (even though you did have to get 2 shots..OUCH!)

Have a restful Sunday! And thanks for letting us know what P.T.U. stands for...mom never heard that before but we think it's quite appropriate!!!

All in all, you did wonderful at the Vet's, Parker! Mom and Uncle Allen take all 6 of us every year. It's not so fun for us, but everyone seems amazed that Mom would dare to bring 6 of us at once. Mom says it's the Vet who's got the tough part. Cosmo Kitty and Tucker Scissorhands turn into, well Scizzorhands and Big Bitey Monsters.

Relax. Renew. Refresh. You all deserve it!

Daisy said...

Thank goodness the terrible torture is over! I am glad that you are all healthy and good. Except, I wish Rudy did not have to get his teeths cleaned. That seems a little bit unfair for him!

Socks is very well behaved at the vet, and Whiskers was always a perfect gentleman no matter what.

Us girls on the other hand are very vocal about our displeasure. Scylla even gave Mommy the bitey last time we went to the vet. They just laugh at us though. ~Scylla & Charybdis

Eric and Flynn said...

Not the dreaded V E T. We're glad you are all healthy apart from Rudy's teefs. We can see that you are the queen of the household as you have the biggest PTU. When mum had ten kitties before she had us, she used to take them to the V E T two at a time. It was only a short drive to the V E T she had then.

Forty Paws said...

See. It's the curse of the orange cats. They are "more sensitive" according to our V-E-T and seem to have "more issues". Whereas the rest of you guys are just fine. Poor ol' Rudy.

Doodz. Come ofer fur Dorf & G.T.'s 8th Purrfday Par-Tay!

Sophia said...

We're glad all checked out ok - Please tell DKM that no cat should be on a diet!

GRRRETA said...

Your hairy eyeball look is very intimidating.

Sweet Praline said...

Glad everything checked out at the vet. So sorry that Rudy has to get the teeth cleaned (I have had that a few times and it isn't much fun!).

That was a very inexpensive bill from the VET for all four of you! Mom says it costs her that much for just me (and that's without the bloodwork).

-d ma said...

glad everyone got a clean bill of health. speaking of bills I cringed when I saw the total.

Ariel said...

Your mom and dad are brave taking you all to the vet at the same time, but the good thing is you all have the stinky vet smell on you, so no-one smells different. Congratulations on your award. We hope you had a good Sunday.

Parker, we are sorry to hear that all you kitties had to go to the vet, but we are happy that everything checked out okay, except for Rudy's teeth.

Sunny's Mommy said...

The vet visit doesn't sound like it was too bad. At least you don't have to go back and have your teeths done. Poor Rudy :(

Congratulations on your award :-D It's very well deserved.
