Thirteen Reasons that going to the VET stinks

1. First there is the PTU! I mean, need I say more?
2. The Metal Monster with wheels....its a MONSTER and it makes loud noises and you can hear the Lap Lady but she's too busy to pet you. Doing what I don't know.
3. You are inveitably going to meet woofies. Sure they may not come too close to you but they're there and they're big.
4. Waiting.....sitting in the PTU screaming at the top of your lungs doesn't make this go much faster though I suggest trying. It never stops me.
5. By the time they try to take you out of the PTU you know its better just to stay in there so you have to splay your paws and grapple in. Somehow they always get you out.
6. Hey, I LOVE to purr but I have to purr so loud and hard and long at the VET that my throat vibrates and it actually makes me tired. But they STILL can't hear my heart beat over the purring no matter what they try.
7. People are always holding you down not letting you explore. There are some ODD smells in there so why shouldn't you check them out?
8. The thing up your butt. We all get it, we all hate it. Tell you what...they've developed new ways to do this for humans, why don't they take our temperature in our ear??
9. Bright lights in your eyes STINK. I don't know about you but I can't stand when that light shines in my eyes.
10. Generally you're going to get pricked. Either they will steal your blood or they'll stick you and put poison in your muscles.
11. They offer you "treats" that are healthy. Sure...only idiots eat those (sorry Chase).
12. Then they open your mouth and say how horrible your gums are. What? Not all cats have horrible teeth? Hmm...I guess that might actually beneficial.
13. No matter how short the visit you still might be sent home with home-torture. These are the nasty pills or liquids your Lap Lady has to give you at home.

Oh, that's a good list, Kaze. Going to the vet definitely stinks! But your vet gives you treats? Wow. Mine doesn't. Maybe I should complain. In addition to all the things you mentioned, mine always cleans my ears, since they build up a lot of earwax (one of the disadvantages of being a Sphynx), and the vet can go in a lot deeper than my mom can safely.

I just went this morning and gess what, the new vet lady took my temp IN MY EAR! It was so much better den da other kind! She did shine a light in my eyes and made me squint...~Sadie

Jimmy Joe said...

That's a very good, comprehensive list, Kaze. I have another personal complaint: always some snarky remark about my weight. I AM JUST BIG BONED!!! Of course, obviously you have no reason to get comments like that.

The Vet is never a good thing...EVER!!!

Well Kaze, when I purred they put alcohol to my face because of the amonia smell so that I would stop purring (it worked).

At least I don't have to put up with dogs. My vet is cats only!

Daisy said...

Kaze, I completely agree with you. My Mommie always gets upset when people let their big dogs come over and sniff, sniff, sniff at me in my carrier. Because I am scairt of dogs. And we always try to sit far away from the dogs, but the owners think it is cute.

The Furry Kids said...

That's a great list. You get treats at the V-E-T?! When you refused to come out of the PTU, did they ever open the door and SHAKE you out onto the table? That happened to me once. It was humiliating. Mom always asks about the ear thermometer and they always tell her they have to take our temp in spot #13. :(

PS - Mom hates when people don't control their dawgs in the V-E-Ts office. Titus always has to stay right by her side and he's not allowed to sniff any kitties or other dawgs and other dawg people look at Mom weird because she gets mad when they let their dawgs go wherever they want. Oh man, she got started on bad dawg owners... it's going to be a long afternoon.

Caesar and Princess said...

... let's not even talk about the PTU. I haate that word.
Our vetlady does not give treats... just stabs. This is a good TT.

truly wonderous list kaze. Let it stand as a warning to all cats! xx

jcfloresinc said...

Kaze, what a wonderful T13 list. We scream until we get to the vet's office and then we are quiet at the office and then we scream all the way home. The whole list is so true!! Thank heaven it's mostly only one time a year!

Lux said...

I am one of those few cats - I see - who enjoys going to the vet ... otherwise, I'm all locked up inside this boring place.

Tyler said...

Kaze, you are so right about the vet. There is not one good thing to say about the place. If I see the PTU, I get scarce and util I'm sure it's not for me.

I wish I could hear you screaming at the top of your lungs. I wonder if your scream would work better than mine on my mom. I just yelp every 30 secs. or so. It's my poor poor me, and how could you do this to me yelp, but it only gets me some sweet talk back, I never get freedom.

Good luck staying away from the vet and I hope that you avoid the home torture.]

Going to the v-e-t definitely stinks! The one good thing for me is that Meowm lets me get out when we are in the little room and explore!
