Vet day

Well, Mom did it. She took all three of us to the vet today. It was a wild trip. Angel does not like to be in the PTU. She was hiding under Mom's bed so Mom had to bribe her out. She yelled all the way to the vet's office. Kirby went in his PTU and laid down. No complaints. I guess he is practicing being a big brave Mancat. Illyana had to go in a box carrier cause Mom could not get her in with either of us. Mom had to put her in twice cause she is fast. She could not see out and she screamed all the way, too!

Illyana got her baby booster shot. Dr. H said she was the bravest kitten he has seen all month. All the other kittens cried and wiggled but she was still and quite. Then they stole her blood. She had never been tested for FeLV/FIV. Her mother was tested and was negative, so Mom got her tested, too. And she is negative. She does not have worms or ear mites. We didn't think she did since she had been a foster. Now all she needs is is her Rabies shot next month or so. Dr H gave her a kitten Science Diet starter pack and revolution. He gave her two doses for kittens under 5 pounds cause she only weighed 3.6.

Kirby Weighs 10.3. He gets to take liquid meds for his sneezing. mom has never had to give him and so we will see how that works. Other wise he seemed healthy. The vet techs said his face looked like he has some oriental short hair in him. mom and dad has commented that his head and face looked like he might have some meezer.

Angel weighed 9.6. mom thought that was funny cause she feels heaver than long lanky Kirby. She was sneezing the most and Dr H wanted mom to give her meds too. Mom said that was almost impossible cause you have to trap her in the bathroom and wrap her in a towel and hope for the best. She got a shot, instead. Dr H said trauma could make the cold worse.

Mom speaking: They were good cats at the Dr. H's office. They were scared Kirby and Illyana did a little exploring. Illyana did the most, till they stole her blood. Angel hates to travel and hates anywhere other than home. She went behind the exam table to a corner and hid behind a fan. We were there for two hours because they had an emergency come in. it seems Mrs. Dr H, got a contact lens in her eye and it was folded. She came to have Dr H remove it. He was a nervous wreck. He came and apologized to us ans said he nearly fainted cause he doesn't do humans; he would rather do brain surgery on a dog that have to get a contact lens out, again! He made two vet techs stay in the room with us cause we had started so long. Dr H had started Kirby's exam when the emergency started. Kirby had joined Angel behind the table. then Illyana came back and she joined them. Mom laughed about a cat pile. Kirby got ac close to Angel as he could. In fact, he got under her and she had to sit up more. Then Illyana got on top. Mom did not get that picture but did get others. Of course all she had was her cell phone so the quality isn't the best. They all got the clippy claws too.



We all came home and had lunch. The cats scattered to the winds and then we all took naps!

Well, I've taken 'many cats' to the Vets a few times - my 2 and Allen's 4 - and now I have a 2-cat limit! Especially since we now have Whitey, too. Too much excitement/stress. I applaud you for taking all 3 of them. Glad the sneezing is nothing serious and especially glad to hear Illyana tested negative!

Enjoy your naps!

Shadow said...

Glad all of you survived the vet trip today and that you are okay. My mom really feels for your mom with three kitties at one time. She says I am fiesty enough, much less two more.

The Monkeys said...

What an adventure with all three! Good to hear you're all healthy

quiltcat said...

Brave Mom to take all three cats at once! Sounds like Ilyana was the "good child." It's too bad that Angel is so scared of anything other than home. Did the vet recommed L-Lysine? Our vet recommended it for Fuzzy to build up his immune system after he had a bad case of the sneezles. It comes in a gel form that's fairly palatable. It seems to have helped!

quiltcat said...

Fuzzy didn't really like the L-Lysine, so i squirted it into his snack bowl and sprinkled a small number of his most favorite crunchies in the whole world on top, and he'd lick the crunchies up and get the L-Lysine at the same time. Maybe that will work for Angel?

Chesney Cats said...

That sounds like quite a trip! Hope efurryone feels better soon!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

GOOD GRIEF....Your mommy took all of you at once??? She is very brave! Mommy takes us one at a time! Seaborne went yesterday!

Zeus said...

The human pet doesn't like having to go to the vet by herself when she has to take both Isis and I. It's a lot of work. Good job on taking all three at the same time, Angel and Kirby's mom!

Daisy said...

That sounds like a big ordeal for everybuddy! I'm glad you are all back safe and sound.

Noll's Nip said...

We used to all go together too but that stopped when Uncle Keaks started pooping in the carrier (we only have 2): woe to the unlucky cat who traveled with him!

CCL Wendy said...

It's terrible when you have to wait a long time in the vet's office. Mine get pretty testy when that happens (except for Domino who just wants to explore).
I'm happy that Kirby and Illyana all checked out fine -- and that Angel just has a cold and nothing more.
You're such a good mom and foster mom to these babies.

By the way, you commented that you thought Dylan was a big cat -- well, he is at around 14 lbs. and very tall. The birdbath is normal height. However, Dante is even larger at 22 lbs. and lots taller than Dylan. So size is relative. Dylan is our medium-sized cat. Domino is teeny.

No offense, but our mom sez yoor mom is crazy...three at once! We do one at a time and dat is enuff fur our mom. Ha, yoor mom is braver den ours!
