Woohoo! Thank you Catster, for making me one of the daily diary picks of the day. Thanks to my friends for the beyootiful rosettes you have bestowed on me, and thanks to the kitties who have told me they enjoy reading my diary. A very special thanks to my auntie Eva, who made me a lovely kimi for my page.
Yesterday I went to see Dr. Mike for my last set of kitten shots. I was wearing my big-boy harness, and mama hooked a leash to me for the first time. Mama says I am getting so big and strong and FAST that if I dashed out an open door, no human could catch me.
We were Dr. Mike's last appointment of the day. My doctor is very smart, and he is real good at multitasking, so he has several patients at a time, and he is running back and forth. We waited, and waited, and waited. I loved it. I came right out of my carrier when mama opened the door. The nice lady came in with the scale, and they weighed me. I am 5 1/4 pounds! Mama says I look long and lean, but I am just growing really fast. Mama says I have the "gangles."
Anyway, after the nice lady left with her scale, I wandered around the exam room. I leaped on the chairs, went under the chairs, leaped from the chairs onto the exam counter, got on my carrier, tried to work the TV mounted on the wall (mama would not let me), wanted to work the computer (mama wouldn't let me), strolled all around the exam room, pawed at the storage cabinets (hmmmmm...wonder what's in there?), and even flopped on the floor and rolled around and stretched.
Then Serena came in and told mama I did not need any more shots. There was a discussion about the shots, and Serena went off to ask Dr. Mike. I was hoping, hoping, hoping. Dr. Mike said oh, boy did I ever need more shots, so after about 100 hours of waiting, Dr. Mike came in to say hi. He washed his hands and started talking to mama about some dog that ate sugarless gum. There is some stuff in it that is poison, and the doggies can die from it. Anyway, Dr. Mike was standing next to the chair. I hopped on the chair and stood up on my hind legs and started pawing at his hand. "Hey, remember me, Gunnarr? I don't wanna hear about dogs, I want my attention now. It is my turn." Mama started laughing, and Dr. Mike scooped me up like a baby. I was so cute he forgot all about the dogs and their gum eating. Unfortunately, Dr. Mike found the shotter and gave it to me. I didn't like it much, but the bad part did not last for long. Afterwards Dr. Mike looked in my ears and eyes. Then he felt my tummy. I was pretty squirmy; I did not wanna be restrained. Dr. Mike said I am "perfect," but mama said he was talking about my physicalness, not my behavioralness. My weight is perfect for my age, and my coat is beyootiful and shiny. Dr. Mike also said I have a "dog heart." I am not afraid of my carrier, the car, the animal hospital, or any of the nice people who work there, so my heart just keeps plugging along like when I am at home. Dr. Mike says I am a very well socialized kitty.
I am so lucky; I went from a tiny kitten that nobody wanted to a very lucky boy who has a mama, daddy, grampster, doctor, vet techs, auntie, and cousins who all love me, and I have lots of great friends on Catster.
