First out of the box was Faith. She has a check up and look at her C-Section place and a tickle under the chin and a vaccination. I am so glad I don't get those, Neeguls make me shiver! Lillibet, who was sharing with faith had a check up and a weigh in. She is announced the fittest cat today! Momma speaks about her seizures, Simon agrees she is having many small ones a day and to only give her the small part of the vaccine just in case. She won't be meeting any cats with lurgies any time soon!
J1 is growlin and kicking up a storm in his box, I start to scream at him. He making me worried. ManSLave covers him and I Thwak Gracie for digging under my tummy. Gracie is next. She has a sore ear. She got a stack of cat litter in it a week ago and now she is scratching it every second of the day. Simon looks down her ear. "Clear of movers & shakers" he announces, "But there is something down here". Well, we all know what that is. She has to continue having ear flush and antibiotic drops. She also gets the FeLV part of her injection. OUTCHIE!
I am next, I have my body examined and oohed and arrhhhed at. Everyone is pleased with my lovely soft skin. I do have a range of strange lumps, each different, each unique. They are to be left. But then, yikes, what's this? Can I have my ears checked too? REALLY? I wriggle a bit and then Simon is in my ear. He announces "It's always the right ear on nearly every animal i see." What does that mean? What is wrong with my right ear? Apparently, he tells Momma "It's blocked a bit, give him a few drops too" GREAT! I am bundled back in with Gracie who is miffed that her ear was looked at too, her right ear AND she has a repeat injection in 3 weeks!!?
Then it's J1's turn. Bless him, this is his second visit. He saw Simon last week to have a Tardak injection to calm his testosterone down. He has been mighty feisty of late and with Momma a little slow these days, she doesn't always spot the signs of him getting over stimulated and J1 gets upset so quickly if Momma misses the signs... Anyway, he is here for another injection. It has to be given in his back muscle. He is one brave cat and Simon is one brave vet. "I won't be doing that again now" he announces, wincing at the thought of the pain he has just put J1 in. J1 is very good really, he takes it like a man. Hopefully this will help him empty his marbles out of his sock?
