Samoa Says

BP of a Two Year Old!

I spent the morning visiting the vet's office for my yearly exam. Of course, I was purrfect in the car and never made a noise. I actually like riding in the car!

Kaitlin, my vet tech, listened to my heart, put me on the scale, and then did a very unlady like maneuver in order to take my temperature! I weighed in at 9.25 lbs.

The vet came in next and after looking at my toofies said that I should get a dental cleaning done soon. She also said that gals my age should have our blood pressure checked, and also blood work done in order to see how our kidneys and thyroid are doing.

They decided to do the blood pressure check in the same room so that Mawmee could be there to keep me calm. I had a little cuff put around my front arm, and Kaitlin checked it three times. The machine was noisy, but I was very good.

They took me in the back to do unspeakable acts to me which included vampire poking, poop and pee removal, and a rabies shot. While I was being tortured, the vet told Mawmee that I have the blood pressure of a two year old!

I think the vet needs to check my blood pressure at home when I'm around a four year old!

The two vet girls that tortured me said I was so good . . . . . what did they expect from a princess? Of course, they left me smelling stinky from the alcohol!

I'll get my blood results later in the week, and I'll update you on how I did. I was a perfect angel in the car on the way home, and immediately went in the box to leave a big stinky poopie for Mawmee. I don't like pooping or peeing in my travel carrier like some brothers I know!

Speaking of brothers, I'm hoping that since Newman is four today, he will start acting like an adult! Fat chance . . . . . .

Glad to hear you were such a well behaved princess! Me on the otherhand - not so good at the VET. I purrsonally think my VET dreads when I have to come in for my yearly physical. What I do like about my VET is that she doesn't do anything with those thermometers unless I am sick and I have never had poopie or pee pee taken from me. Hope everything is fine with your bloodwork and be sure to keep those brothers of yours in line.

I am due for a big check up like you soon....ugh.....and poor Juliette is due for her operation on August 23rd. We don't like going to the vet. The vet is just twenty minues away so we get there quickly. We hope that the vet finds nothing....I am sure that all of your tests are going to be excellent.
Did you get treats when you got home?

Good job on the vet visit, Miss Samoa. I've had that blood pressure check thingy a few times and sometimes they've had the nerve to do it on my tail! Or my back paw. Hope your bloodwork will also be good.

You can bet I got some treats when we got home, Alexander! I hope your checkup goes okay. Gumpy - they used to take Sugar's BP on her tail, but I was very calm so they could get it on my arm.
