Neato to ride in a taxi that comes right to my front door, picks me up and takes me on a ride all around San Francisco.Thought I was going on a tour of the Sardine Factory or down to Pier 39 to visit our famous Sea Lions, but SURPRISE! Taxi driver stopped at the VET's office and booted me out. Yikes!
Seems it was time for my quarterly Mani-Pawdicure. That's OK but I see no reason to have to weigh me before. My Staff goes to get her nails done and they don't put her on a scale when she walks into the nail salon! Sheesh. Mancat personal stuff is now announced all over the VET's office 'Hey Grazie has gained one huge pound since June!"
Ok Ok So I have - that means my appetite is ripe and I'm a happy kitty here in the City and was hoping I'd blow up that scale at 11 lbs. Mister VET says "if he keeps this quarterly weight gain up, he'll surpass Guido and that's HUGE!" I wouldn't pay someone a fee for announcing that stuff.
Magically the Taxi showed up to drive me home, but he never took me to Pier 39 Sea Lions & didn't let me stop for a tuna sammy. I'm blacklisting his Taxi company!

MOL! MamaCat wudn't want their weight announced! *giggles in paws*
Well Pffttie to dat taxi Grazie : (
Maybe that Taxi driver needs some edu-cat-ion about where kitties really need to go..and it isn't a (vet) office fur sure!
Can you imagine the Mommas walking into their nail salons and the receptionist saying " Welcome & You weigh xxxxx today" ! MOL MOL
Hmmm. I think your anger at the taxi driver is redirected aggression. You should be mad at yourself for eating too much!
Oh Mister Monster - the food here is soooooo good! Big step up from when I lived Feral in Yolo County.
Your just becoming a great big kitteh and that is good..the pawdecures? Not so much...
Grazie, I used to be bigger than Guiding. I was almost 17 pounds before my thyroid became hyperactive. Good thing too, because I didn't get too skinny. I gained two pounds since June and that made my mom happy. But my mom says it wasn't right to have your weight announced. She says you should never announce your weight, age or bra size. Good thing cats don't wear bras.
Mate that's not worst vet embarrassment that could happen to you. Mum took me to the vet and the vet weighted me. He told mum I had lost weight and she started to laugh and ask if they weight the right kitty and told the vet I eat like a horse that can't be right.
I hope the rest of your vet visit went well mate.
Oh how embarrassing Grazie, one should never announce ones weight!
I think I would be upset too if they didn't even let you have a tuna sammy....after all you went through.
I am glad I don't have to wear a bra too, Mom says some of us need a tummy tuck...but I don't know what that is...guess I will have to wait and see what my vet says when I have to go in...
Hope you enjoyed your ride getting to see some of the wonderpurr sights!
I think you need to go with a new taxi company next time!
The least the vet could have done was write your weight down on piece of paper and show it to your mom, quiet-like. But I guess the news from the scale explains why you didn't get to stop for a tuna sammy. Better luck next time!
Thanks everybody for the neato ideas: new taxi company who can bipass the Vet's office, and a new Vet (that's for sure)! Tiny - thanks for sharing what yur Momma says "never share your age, weight OR bra size"! MOL my momma is still on the floor laughing! I'm hoping my nails get "small nail syndrome" and stop growing!
