Call me Dexter the Brave!

Bwahahahaha!    Remember how when my brofur Harry went to the vet ?  Remember he admitted he was a big whiny baby and his knees turned to jello and he cried and cried and hid under the bed for days... (Dex, let's rein that in a bit, I had "some" troubles, but I am NOT a big whiny baby...).... anyway...

So it was my turn yesterday.  I proved my bravery by walking right in to that PTU when mom got it out on Sunday and making it my nappy place.  I went in easy the next morning, and although I didn't like the car ride much... ok, I didn't really like that part at all... I only meowed a little bit, and then settled down to listen to NPR on the way.

When we got there, I was greeted by a pretty girl kitty named Charlotte.  She had been helping Miss Mary with her typing, but she came over to say hi.  She was a pretty, floofy calico girl with big eyes and a pink nose and she made me feel at ease.  Then it was in to see Dr. Chris.  I sat on the table, calm as you please, and she looked at my fierce teeth, my perfect pink ears, my glowing eyes... she squeezed me a bit, and listened to me in a bunch of places, and I must have sounded pretty good, cause she said I was a "happy, healthy boy".  The Momma asked her to check my front feets, where I had that surgery, and it didn't hurt at all, I didn't even mind it. I weighed in at a sturdy 14 lbs, and the Momma asked if I was... well "chubby" (I think she said FAT) and Dr. Chris said no... I was SOLID and a big boned boy!  How bout that Harry? She didn't call YOU solid... did she? (Harry is ignoring me).  Anyway, a squirt of wormy juice (blech) and two shots ( I didn't even flinch or cry) and we were done.  I said goodbye to Charlotte and and then we were home!  I walked in, Harry and Tipp smelled me (what? it's just me, you dufouses) and I went to have a snack.  All done, all good!

So Tipp's turn is Thursday, he seems a little nervous, but he usually seems a little nervous about something.  I told him it was no big thing and he would do fine.  We'll give you a report and see.
Bye for now!
Dex

  2. Wow, Dexter! I turn into a shivering, rattling bag of bones the moment I get stuck in the PTU! I wish I could go to the vet with your poise and calm!

  3. You certainly were a VERY good boy ! Arthur becomes a wild tiger at the vet. First he sings operas in his cage during the ride in the car, then he yowls, hisses, makes flat ears, has teeth and claws out and it's impossible to get him out of the cage ! The vet has to give him a little shot to calm him down otherwise it's impossible to do a check up !! And when it's over and he wakes up in the car (on the way back not in the cage) He sits on high in the back of the car and greats all people like a king ! The all wave of course ! What a hypocrite !

  5. Dexter, you're a beautiful big boy. Our Domino looks fat but our vet says he's a stocky big-boned type.

  6. You were very brave for your vet visit. I am good too but Flynn sings his warrior songs all the way there and back again, and then he hisses at the vet.

  13. Wow, you are really brave! We prefer UTB to the vets any day. Thank goodness we don't have to go too often, cause it can be a real struggle.

  14. Sounds like you had an EXCELLENT visit to the doctors'. Good for you. You know... my sisters Tobias as Mason have their annual check-ups this afternoon and I bet they won't be nearly as brave as you. Sisters! purrs

  15. We aren't so brave when we are in our PTUs - one or both of us usually manages to do a pee so Mum always has to take a bag of clean papers with us and some cleaning things so we don't stink when we see the vet. We wish she didn't cos if we smelled real bad we're sure they'd throw us out!!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
    PS It's not the V-e-t that scares us it's Mum's driving - honest.
