I have had all kinds of ups and downs here lately. My thyroid medicine keeps changing and sometimes I feel really meh and other times I feel really irritable. Thyroid disease is no fun! It is a roller coaster ride of emotions and feelings. One week all I want to do is sleep, the next I feel like fighting everyone and everything around me. It is very frustrating to deal with.
My mom and dad try as hard as they can to do the right thing, and they are very patient with me through all my ups and downs. Unfortunately, part of doing the right thing involves taking me to the vet every few weeks, where I scream and yell and try to escape or hide, to no avail of course, and then they take me in the back and draw some blood. I don't like that part at all.
The vet techs keep telling me I'm really sweet and I'm their favorite cat. I think they're lying. They coo in soft voices and give me skritchy-scratches behind my ears, and then they insert the thermometer to take my temperature. Is that any way to treat a "favorite cat"? No way! Why don't they just ask me? I'd be perfectly happy to tell them I'm feeling fine, not feverish at all, thankyouverymuch kthxbai, instead of going through with that thermometer rigamarole.
You know, I'm beginning to think that it's that thermometer business that's the worst part of going to the vet. If we can skip that, it wouldn't be quite so bad.
I think I'll go kill one of my toys now and pretend it's the vet.

My dear furriend! I am purring for you, sweetie!
In other news, did you see I have a new sisfur? And she has something in common w/you: she, too, has only one eye!
I hope they can get your meds balanced out & that you start feeling better & don't have to go to the V E T anymore than is strictly necessary! I, as you know, don't travel well so it's hell for me too.
