The only time we get treats is when Eric and Paul came over to visit and when it is time to weigh ourselves on our scales. Now we are getting treats for another purpose.
Mommy yells out "TREAT!" and we both run upstairs to our carriers. We don't know this yet but our carriers are all ready for our annual Vet appointment on Saturday. First our carriers were put out with no door and comfy sherpa beds inside. Mommy throws a piece of Wellness CORE dry food in each carrier and we go in there and eat it. Later the doors were added on (but left open) and then fleece blankets were put inside.
So far the daily practicing of getting in our carriers has been going really well. We sometimes will even take a little nap in there. On Saturday Mommy's plan is to close the doors to the carriers while we are having our treats. She is hoping this will go smoothly. She is thinking Zack and I will be really good at the Vet's. Unlike somecat that was nicknamed Clarice!
Zack and I have been trying different flavors of the Nature's Variety Instinct canned food. So far we love the chicken, the rabbit and the duck. The cans of lamb are coming today.
Wish us luck on Saturday!
Your Mom is so nice to acclimate you to your crates so it won't be as stressful. My Mom just picks me up, stuffs me in, then closes the door. Hmffff. Then we get in the car. Somehow cats "just know" when it is time to go the vet...
Good luck with your training and especially when you go to the Vet....we all hate the Vet visit...
Be good for your Vet. I know you can do it. Your both to sweet to be bad.
Good luck at the vet!
Good luck at the vet Sweetie; I'll be thinking about you and Zacky.
Okay Zoey, you have to give me the low down of what they do to you and Zack. Mom is making my appointment in a couple of days and I'm scared! I should probably go and sharpen my claws... you know just incase! Good Luck Saturday!
I hope you guys have an easy vet visit! I think you are gonna love the NV Instinct Lamb :)
Good luck at your vet visit tomorrow! We get treats while we're at the vet, too, after we are done being examined and we go back inside our carriers. Just sayin'... :)
Zoey, my Mom got me all mixed up on what day it was yesterday! (I forgive her, though... she was sick for a couple days. I even had to be her nurse.)
Today I can really say: Good luck at your vet visit tomorrow! Hope everything goes smoothly getting in your carriers and getting to the vet, too.
Thanks Zoe, Xena, Zach, Jezebel, Uncle Tigger, Hunty, Tasha and Ashlynne for the good luck wishes!
Hunty I will let you know what all happens to us at the visit. Ashlynne, Mommy is bring treats to the Vet AND last time our Vet actually gave us treats himself. I sure hope your Mom is feeling better. I bet you did a great job at your turn of being a nurse. I wish our Vet visit was yesterday! MOL!
Last year's vet visit, Zack was very shy and kept hiding his head in the Vet's jacket. Now me, I just purred and purred to anything he was doing to me. So we will see what happens tomorrow. I will let you know!
Thanks again for all the good luck. I am going to try my hardest NOT to get in that carrier tomorrow!
