Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen reason to be nice to your vet place even if you don't want to:

1. You get a lot more of the worker bees hovering around you cooing how cute you are if you aren't trying to claw their eyes out
2. You get more treats offered to you if the worker bees know they can keep their fingers
3. Your mom isn't embarassed by the triple astrick star on your chart after she finds out what it means
4. The energy you save from not fighting the cold thing that is in an unspeakable place in your behind can be used playing with the great new toy Mom bought you for being so good
5. You don't have to get pooked with that sharp metal thing multiple times because they never had a chance to hit the right spot, which kept moving out from under them
6. You don't have the worker bees threatening to feed you to the woofies
7. You get to act cool, regal and superior in front of those slobbering woofies
8. By putting up with the poke of that sharp metal thing, you get to play with other kitties in the yard without worry of taking home one of those bugs that you can't see or eat
9. If they happen to do something to you that makes you hurty later on, you get to take these major cool drugs that can make you feel better than nip (I'm still bouncing off the walls from the Metacam)
10. You get out of there a lot faster, and back to your favorite wand toy
11. If the vet tech doesn't need a blanket to put you back in your carrier, he may give you a tasy treat when he is done
12. If you have to spend the night, you get special sympathy with quiet, pathetic crys vs psycho kitty howls...which again may lead to better treats

And finally

13. Remember, they want you to be heathy, fit and full of vim and vigor, no matter what indignities they might be subjecting you to

That's a great list Tara! :) Those are all terrific reasons to be nice to the vet and the other people at the vet's office.

Glad to hear you are feeling better and that you are almost back to your usual self. :)

That is a wonderful list! I too have much experience with being nice to the worker bees. In fact, Meowmy was at a party and met one of my techs and the tech had no idea who she was until she said "Latte's Mom", then she remembered!

Glad you like the Metacam! Its supposed to be for woofies with arthritis but just a few drops makes the pain go away in kitties! We keep ours in the cabinet for whenever we're in pain.

Those are some very very good tips. I must have been really nice to the vet, because they sent me home with Buprenex!

oh Tara, we're so glad your home and OK. Your list is a very good one. I try to follow it (but I do have the big red star on my folder, sigh) as best I can, but taking my temperature is over the line!
I'm going to have to keep #11 in mind because they always have to use my blanket.
I'm so glad you have a nice vet & vet tech who are patient with you when you're upset. They do keep us healthy and safe don't they?
Takes care and get lotsa snuggles from your mommy & daddy. They'll help you get better soon!

Tara that was a very good TT, even though I must say that the time I had to go to the vet, I wasn't thrilled by it!
This is my first time here, and I will have to come back and catch up on your previous princess posts!

Our 19th TT is up at
Purrchance To Dream

Meow for now,

We're always very well behaved when we go to the V.E.T. Mom thinks it's 'cause we're too scared to act up!

Love,
Tipper

We learned if your nice at the vet's office (and flirt alot), that the vet techs might volunteer to kitty-sit when your beans are out of town - we likes our kitty-sitter!

Emma said...

You are very smart Tara about why to be nice to your vet place. It is hard sometimes though. I try to be nice and am pretty much most of the time. Even with the cold thing in the unmentionable place!
