Over the weekend, it was Miss Newton and Pia’s turn to visit the V-E-T for their yearly checkups and vaccines. Taking in consideration how pissy Tessa got last week during her visit, we considered taking just Miss Newton alone and waiting to take Pia separately. But because these girls love each other so much, we reasoned that they would help each other with those V-E-T stresses and threw caution to the wind. After each were settled in their carriers, off we went.
Should have known better. Apparently, neither one likes being in a carrier now. Hmm, didn’t seem to be a problem before with Miss Newton when last February she had to have her bitten tail looked at. Or even further back when Miss Newton first joined Colehaus Cats. Finally, Mom draped a towel over the front of her carrier and Miss Newton stopped trying to rip the door off its hinges.
Pia took the cue from her older sister Miss Newton and did the same. A draped towel over the door calmed her as well, but that brought on the singing. Oh, how we sang all the way to the V-E-T office! Pia really put her heart into it; nothing like those mere squeaks and peeps emitted on her Spay Day trip. For those keeping track, Pia’s still not a Rihanna fan, nor Bruno Mars as we discovered. Nope on Ozzy Osbourne. BIG NOs for Demi Lovato, Drake and sadly enough, the group FUN. Pia’s likes the sound of her own voice over anyone who might be getting paid to do the same so we’ll have to leave it at that.
At the V-E-T office, both behaved like good girls. Pia went first and enjoyed having her fur fawned over by our favorite vet. She was brushed, got a mani and a pedi and even had her floofy pantaloons expertly trimmed.
It’s a bit breezy back there, Mom, you might want to know!
And the trimming came not a moment too soon! Once home, Mom got right to cleaning up that damp bedding and carrier. You know what happens sometimes!
Serves you all right for touching my pantaloons!
Miss Newton acted like an old pro and didn’t give an ounce of trouble. She also got brushies and lots of pets, a mani and pedi and extra attention. She has a little gingivitis that will need to be looked at again in six months but other than that, she’s perfect!
“If you ate Greenies, Miss Newton, we bet you wouldn’t have gingivitis. Those are good for that.”
Greenies? Those vile things? Ugh! I’d rather bury them. You’ll never catch me eating those things. They look like rabbit raisins!
More singing on the way home. No fans of Justin Timberlake either so Mom acted as tour guide for the remainder of the fifteen minute trip which may or may not have bored the girls to sleep. More naps after arriving home and no hard feelings. Whew! Four down, three to go (plus the adventure of capturing outside semi-feral Geoffrey).
