Arrival Story: A family was going to have a new human baby and thought it wasn't safe to have a cat in the house with a pregnant woman, and then a baby, so the family asked my husband to watch Gary for a while, its been 2 years and he's ours now!
Ok, its been 3 days of ear cleaning now and I hate it!! The vet did it Sat, Mommy did it Sun and Mommy did it today, we still have 9 days left.
I don't know how either of us it going to get through it.
Yesterday I got myself so worked up I actually vomited (mommy says this could not be an effect of the medicine as the med did not go in my tummy at all, but I don't think we should take chances like that!)
I hate to admit it, but my ears do actually feel a lot better, I do not have to shake my head at all now unless that cold medicine is in my ears, nor do I have to scratch my head.
Yesterday we all woked up really early for a Saturday. Mommy tried to put me in a little box she calls a "carrier" But, I knew something was up, she never needed a box to carry me before. I WOULD NOT go in that box. She tried and tried and we were both just getting more and more upset.
Finally she gave in and put the harness and leash on me. I LOVE the harness and leash, it means we're going outside. Yay!!!
But, then we got in the car. I've never been in her car before, but it seemed ok. I layed on the seat beside her for a while then I stood on her lap and looked out her window. Next we stopped and got out and I did not like that, it was noisy , lots of cars in the "par-king lot (I have never heard of this King Par) .
Then we went in a building that did not smell good, it smelled like scared kitties, and Mommy went up to the desk and "checked in Gary" I did not know what that meant, but I did not like the sound of it and I bolted. I bolted right out of the harness and left Mommy standing there holding leash with an empty harness.
Neither one of us had any idea I could get out of the harness until then. Mom says it is the dickens to get on, lots of band and straps and clasps, but I guess it wasn't tight enough because all of the sudden "woosh" I was out of it. But, i did let Mommy pick me up pretty easy. Then she put my harness on me again tighter and sat in a chair with me hidding my head.
Eventually we were called into a small room and I was weighed (11 lbs, thankyouverymuch!) and my temperature was taken. DO YOU KNOW HOW THEY DO THAT? it was awful, I kept trying to get away from it. Then I had to ge a shot, that wasn't so bad.
Then the lady stuck cotton swabs in my hears, that felt sooo funny. Later she told my mommy I have a bacterial infection in my ears but not mites. So, I have to get some cold medicine (really cold, it has to stay in the fridge) put in my ears 2 times a day for 14 days. and every 2 days or so I have to have cleaner put in my ears. The medicine feels really weird, I'm afraid that cold might seep all the way into my brain, it goes really far in.
And, ha ha, I think this is so funny. Mommy is supposed to put the cleaner in my ears and HOLD ONTO ME for about two minutes after that to let the cleaner work and then clean my ears out with a cotton ball. She can hardly hold onto me long enough to get the stuff in the second ear, let alone 2 minutes and then a cotton ball, ha ha ha, if I wore pants I might pee in my pants I am laughing so hard
