Cats

When I’m asked if I’m having kids, I always say “I have cats, books, and my husband. I don’t need anything else.” My cats are my kids. I’m just going to put it out there. I love them. I spoil them. I worry about them. Whenever I go away on a trip, I make sure I have a cat sitter and that cat sitter sends me cat pictures daily.

When one of my cats isn’t doing well, I’m a giant ball of worry and anxiety. Mena is back at the vet. She has problems with her ears. (And I thought Pharaoh was my problem child.) She had a procedure done two weeks ago. Today was a checkup but things don’t look like the vet wants them to. So, they have to keep her for a deeper check up.

I’m upset. I wasn’t supposed to have to leave Mena there. I totally understand why they are doing what they are doing but it doesn’t make it any easier. I didn’t mentally set myself. I know she’s going to be fine but my mama brain is running around in circles freaking the heck out.

It’s going to be a hard day.

It's been my experience that getting a cat out of a cat carrier at the vet's, or any other strange location, is a chore. It usually involves taking the top off.

She's usually pretty good about it all. Now, I'm going to have hide treats in the carrier from time to time to get her to go in it.

Just a wee bit. She should be okay and home soon.

I once had to leave Satin, unexpectedly, at the vet because they couldn't get a urine sample from her during the checkup.

I...was ...not happy with the situation. I hadn't been mentally prepared to leave her, PLUS I had promised her that we'd be home in an hour (after she started crying when I put her in the carrier). I FELT AWFUL for lying to her.

I totally get this. I kept telling her, "It's just a check up, don't worry." Poor baby won't be home for another hour.
