The Viking's Tale

A pain in the ....

Mom recently scheduled us all for our annual checkups, and I was scheduled first, for Thursday. Good thing, too, because the morning of my vet visit, she found me in the litter box, crying and hissing and generally behaving badly. I made a little poop and got out without even covering, hissing at nobody and nothing in particular, and then fell over on my side with my feet in the air and cried pitiously.

Yikes! She figured impacted anal glands, and she was right. The vet did something unspeakable to me and for the rest of the day I was OK. But the next morning I was again crying in the litter box and hissing at everybody and being clearly not myself. She had to go to work, but made an appointment for Dad to take me in to the vet. Well, Dad FORGOT!!! And when he remembered, it was past closing time at the vet's.

So Dad loaded me up and took me to the emergency vet, who found the glands plugged again and now infected. I got the unspeakable treatment again, and a shot, and came home with antibiotics. I am happy to say that I am now feeling better and Mom is speaking to Dad again.

I don't like when they do unspeakable things to our nether parts either!

Meeeoowwwwch! I had that happen once, too. Does that ever hurt! They even shaved one side of my backside, where the nasty infection was. I think I walked lopsided for a while after that! As unpleasant as the treatment is, glad you got it taken care of and are feeling better now, Bear.
