Last Friday’s v-e-t visit with Olivia and Zuzu went very, very well. Olivia wowed everyone with her stunningly sleek supermodel good looks. She was a perfect lady the entire time and, dare we say, seemed to relax just a smidgen during her manicure.

Of course, she hated our guts once we returned home. We’re used to supermodel drama. We all got over it.

As for Zuzu, our butterball, she did not get dinged one bit for her pudgy tendency. Not a single mention of the words weight, diet, or creampuff. In fact, our vet recognizes Zuzu as we do: a mixed Pixie bobtail, a breed that does tend to carry more weight on the backside. Her current weight is just fine. Just don’t let her know there may be cookies in the fridge because the house can only handle so many grumpy divas at once.

And naturally, Tessa had to tease the v-e-t smelling girls after they came home because where’s the fun in not teasing someone?

Don’t listen to Mom. She’s always blaming me for something.

We’re still waiting an appointment callback to talk face-to-face with our shelter manager about foster Miss Itty’s path going forward. We have questions and we know everyone has financial concerns. We’re hoping to figure something out regarding her almost certain and necessary upcoming health procedures but we know money is tight everywhere, particularly tight for non-profit shelters.

It’s times like this we tend to rely on our ability to provide shelter, our desire and discipline toward creating a good, healthy life, and our strong belief that while saving one animal won’t change the world, it will change the world for that animal.

  1. We’re glad everyone had a good vet report. And paws crossed for Miss Itty.

  2. My, such divas wouldn’t last long here, everyone else would laugh at them! We are hoping that one rare person who would understand Miss Itty’s needs and who adores elder kitties will sweep into the shelter asking for a kitty just like her.

  3. Had to laugh at Olivia’s behavior. I have a cat that is very hard to catch for a vet visit. She howls in the car all the way to the vet’s office. Miraculously, once she’s in the vet’s exam room, she quietens down and is mellow. They can pill her, trim her nails, anything. They make it look so easy–ha!

  4. We’re so pleased you had both had good reports at your vets office. It was rather annoying though that we had to put up with the smell of vet when they arrived back.

  5. so glad that all went well, here’s to NO DIETS!!!!! Praying that all works out well for everyone in reference to Miss Itty xoxoxo

  6. Its a good thing that Zuzu is an indoor kitty, cause “Her milkshake would bring all the boys to the yard” MOL! Sorry, we couldn’t resist!

  7. You mean, it’s common to be a diva after the vet? I will have to remember that one. I hope things work out for Miss Itty.

  8. MOLMOL Madi is a Diva before the vet and once home she becomes quite
    appreciative we didn’t leave her there. LOL Of course she is an only cat too.
    Hugs Madi and mom

  9. Eu também sou diva, e não nego!

  10. Zuzu, you are just as beautiful as Olivia, in my book! I hope you went and sat on Tessa, for being a pill. My fingers are crossed for Miss Itty.

  11. Glad to hear that you ladies had an easy time at the vet. Well done, both of you.

  12. Well, you all always do look wonderful to us. Purrs to you Miss Itty.

  13. Zuzu, good for you for not being called too fluffy at the vet. Must be all that patrolling you do, keeping you in shape!

    We hope that everyone can figure out what’s next for Miss Itty. She has done so well there with you and the family, but she would do even better in her very own forever home.

  18. We’re glad everykitty had a good vet visit! Our vet doesn’t mention diets either – she knows better! 🙂 Purring for Miss Itty.

  19. Glad the vet visit went well. I hope Miss Itty can get the medical care she needs.

  20. Our vet is quiet about our weights too. Which relieves Iza greatly…

    I am so truly happy for all the girls and Quint who have been to the dreaded v-e-t and how well they have all done. I love each of the cats truly. Miss Itty will surely be helped by donations for her care. 💗 Give all of them my best love.
