Huffle's trip to the v-e-t, part II

**Warning: graphic pictures ahead! Not for the faint hearted**

So after mum and dad tricked me into going in the car and getting to the v-e-t, I was left on the table to fend for myself. The v-e-t told dad to hold on to me so he could take my temperature.
Take my what????
Then, not happy with just poking something into a spot that should never have something poked into it, the evil v-e-t stabbed me! Warning: kitties under one year should not look at this picture.
I refused to look at the camera after that vicious attack.
And to top it all off, the v-e-t stuck this big tube down my throat to give me a worming tablet! Dad wasn't even distressed at this treatment of me - you can see him laughing in the top corner of this picture. And look how they have me pinned down!
My Friday night was not very much fun. I hope I don't have to go back to the v-e-t again in a hurry. Dad says I got a clean bill of health and now I don't have to go back for a whole year.

Dad also says on the way back from the v-e-t I was much more relaxed and just settled down on his lap. Well of course; I knew I was going home.

I didn't feel too good after my trip to the v-e-t so I got in my purple Huffle bed and slept all night.

The end.

Mummy tells me that the vet has to stick that thing up my bum to make sure that my butt is still sexy!

Stella said...

Oh, Huffle, gruesome experience!

I hope I don't have to go through all that.

You are strong though, and you did it!

Kisses,

Poor, poor Huffle! We are all forced to endure that same thing every year! It's No Fun! But, Mom says it keeps us healthy and happy.

Scary stuff! We get to stay in the bottom half of our transport units when we're at the vet. We feel safer that way.

Daisy said...

Poor Huffle! Oh well, not to worry, because a year is like an eternity from now!

Kathryn and Ari said...

Huffle, we've seen some pretty scary pictures in our day, but those are TERRIFYING! Good thing you're so brave. And just think, if you're lucky you won't have to repeat the experience for 364 days!

The Island Cats said...

Huffle...we've endured the same indignities...all we can say is thank goodness we only hafta go through this once a year...any more and there'd be mutiny!!!

Angus Mhor said...

Aww, Huffle. I'm sure sorry that vet poked you everywhere. That was not very respectful of the Great Explorer Cat!

Mr. Black said...

Huffle, I'm glad you're home and don't have to go to the scary place for a year. The lady used to work at a vet's office and she had to quit because she just didn't have what it takes to hold down kitties and give them treatments. She wanted to...she just couldn't. She said to give you a big kiss.

Joey said...

Hi Huffle! I'm glad you made it through that horrifying vet experience! I almost didn't make it through looking at those pictures.

See ya!

Oh dear!!!!! We hope you think about leaving your Dad a little 'present' on his chest while he is sleeping ;) Heh,heh,heh!!!
You need to tell your Vet to get with the program and get a thermometer that goes in your ear!!! The other way is just not nice!!!!!!!!!
Glad you got a good report :)

Poor Huffle. We're glad it was just a check up you were getting. The pictures did a good job of capturing your fear though, and we hate you had to go through that. I have seen the staff take the boy's temp, and they stick that thing in his mouth, or under the arm. How come us kitties get it there :(

The OP Pack said...

Your Mum told our Mum that sleep is good so we are glad you got to sleep in that luxurious purple bed. Too bad about the vet experience but better to be healthy and well.

Woos, the OP Pack

Lorenza said...

Hi, Huffle!
Thanks for coming to visit my blog. I'd love to be your friend!
I don't like to go to the vet either!
That poo on the table gave me some ideas for the next time I have to go there!
Glad to know you are healthy!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Boru is so relieved to hear that you are fine. That is a traumatic experience but you were certainly a brave girl. Even under such stress you are so distinquished. Although it is a harrowing experience, visiting the vet AT LEAST once a year helps to keep us all from getting sick In fact a lot us us Bumasses (Bumpi?) go to the vet 2 or 3 times in a single year. As you know from our blog, Sophie, Abby and Jack all went for their annuals just 2 weeks ago. Dad like to spread out the financial pain so 3 of us go every 3 months. Our vet give dad a volume discount if he brings 3 of us at once.

OMC - Daddy was laughing and holding you down!! It's so wrong!

Forever Foster said...

Oh dear, you poor girl Huffle! You were very dignified in the way you dealt with this terrible situation.

Parker said...

Oh Huffle. I. am. so. sorry.
Ugh...

Raising Addie said...

We sure do hope you are feeling much better now.

We don't like getting shots either.

We have found a way to move just at the right moment so that the shot goes right through our skin and the shot spills all over the place. BOL

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie and Lucie

Poppy Q said...

Maybe they did that cause you pooped on the table?

Poor Huffle.

Mason Dixie said...

Remind me never to go to your VETs =)

The Army of Four said...

Wowzers. I'm glad you got a clean bill of health, but where's the part where the vet gives you cookies? Where are the tummy rubs? The ear scratchies? The get down on the floor and wrestle around with you? That's what my vet does. I think you need to move here. My vets would probably even stock ham to give you.
Play bows,
Zim

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh man, at least our dad doesn't laff at us when we gets tortured. Maybe one of da beans can tell dat silly vet dat der is a thing out now where dey can take our tempachure in our ear and not shove stuff up our spot #13's!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Once I went to the vet and had to get all my shots in one hip because of some reason (don't listen to my mom when she says it was because that's the only body part the vet could touch). After that, I spent 24 hours under the bed and then when I finally did come out, I just limped out and gave my mom a look and then limped back. I hope you did the same and really worked it.

Another thing, why can't the vet invent a thermometer that takes your temperature in your ear like human babies?

Meow,
Wilbur
