Hi furriends >^.^<
Well, it's that time of the year again...I'm due for my annual shots tomorrow at 2 p.m. I won't be going alone this year, though, Odin is due for his, too! Oh boy it's going to be bad! Dad won't be able to go this time due to work so mom is going to have to do it by herself. That’s okay, though, she just complains that I'm too heavy--especially in my carrier. Me, too heavy? She's just too weak! Anymew, I can guarantee tomorrow will be full of scratches, squirming, flying fur, wheezing, and maybe an occasionally poo on the vet office's floor (I do that when I get upset). Sounds fun, right? I'm also due to get my teeth cleaned, so mom plans on making an appointment for that tomorrow while we're there. This time she's going to ask for a mild sedative to give me before she takes me to my cleaning, though. I get so upset at the vet's, she's afraid I'll have a heart attack one of these days. Teeth cleanings are especially stressful for me since they have to draw blood. Mom gets sad just thinking about how awful and scared I must feel :o( Hopefully a mild sedative will relax me and also help to make the vet's job a little easier. I guess we'll just have to see! I sure would appreciate it if I didn't have to be so scared, though.
Wish me luck!
My appointment went better than expected! I was a very brave boy (even the vet said so). My shots went well--I didn't even make a noise. Neither Odin nor I have worms (as expected) and I even lost a pound! I'm now down to 13.2, hooray!
After Odin and I were done with our exams and shots, mom left us in the examining room while she went to pay. When she left, we were both in our own carriers (doors open). When she came back, she closed my door and tried to pick me up. Much to her surprise, I was about 10 pounds heavier than when she carried me in! She peeped in my cage only to find Odin and me, curled up with one another. I looked at her, giving her a very slooow blink, closed my eyes and went back to sleep. Odin and I were calm the entire drive home :o)
Tomorrow, I'm scheduled for my teeth cleaning. Mom is very nervous, as expected. She has to drop me off at 7:45 in the morning, and she can pick me up around 2 or 3 in the afternoon, as long as I'm fully awake from the anesthesia. Maybe I should bring Odin for support...Hehe :o) He seemed to calm me last week, so I thank him for that. He's a good little brother!
