PRESENTED BY MAMA AND SCOUT
Mama: We had a rough night.
Scout: Mama starved me for days!!
Mama: despite being tired I stayed up until 9 to give Scout time to eat one more time before I pulled his food AND I let him have one last drink of water about 10:30, after I had gone to bed!
Scout: yeah, that was nice.
Mama: he bugged me all night and this morning.
Scout: I was starving!!
Mama: finally it was time to go to the vet. Scout cried the whole way there.
Scout: I. HATE. THE. CAR.
Mama: Anyway..... he also cried when we went into the vet. He likes to announce his presence.
Mama: I was going to let him explore the waiting room, but he tried to get onto a shelf of dog food to hide. Luckily they took us back right away.
Scout: They left the door open and we had a visitor.
Mama: I guess they forgot. Anyway, the office cat walked in to say hi and Scout hissed at him
Scout: I thought maybe he was a new doctor and he did not look competent.
Mama: you've seen him before, Scout. He also greeted us when we came in.
Scout: Yeah, well, you petted him, and you were supposed to be petting ME.
Mama: So, after the cat left and they closed the door, the assistant came in and weighed Scout and listened to his heart and took his temperature
Scout: Up my butt!!!! And she kept calling me "kid"
Mama: Scout actually did pretty well. Then he went to have his blood drawn.
Scout: They would not let Mommy come with me and I was kinda worried. But guess what??? Instead of shaving my leg they shaved my neck!! It's awesome. I look like I got in a knife fight!
Mama: they said he did good
Scout: I did!!!! I was good!! As long as they don't put me in those cages I can be good. I really can.
Mama: When Dr Arneson called later with his results she confirmed he was a good boy. We agree that the cages make Scout ornery. In fact, when we were leaving he growled at them, again.
Scout: yeah. Sorry to the dog that was in there.
Mama: he was quiet on the way home. I gave him his food right away and some water. Then he lied down in my bed and then switched to his car seat bed.
Scout: It was good to be home.
Mama: His labs came back good. No hyperthyroidism or anything else. They are not sure what caused his weight loss and told me to let them know of I notice any adverse changes in him. But he has been just fine!
Scout: yep! No more vet!!!!!!!
Mama: until next year...
(Scout will resume his normal Mancat posts next week)
