Vet Visit

This Thursday I knew there was something wrong when Lynettea tried to pick me up. I was very upset when we went by taxi to my Veterinary Surgeon. As I repeatedly told Lynettea, I require some notice for these visits. She said, 'I did let you know yesterday, Diamond, but I don't want to keep repeating it all the time in case you get nervous.'

This time, instead of doing his dirty work in the back room, I had to endure the jabbing needles in my arm in front of Lynettea. She kept saying things like, 'Maybe if Diamond was a bit more relaxed the blood would flow better.' It is hard to relax with a brutish nurse gripping you by the scruff and the Vet jabbing a needle into one arm.

Then they said they didn't have enough blood (maybe they are vampires?) and had to get some from the other arm. I didn't deign to struggle, as I like to appear dignified at all times, but I was glad when it was over.

After that I had to endure a huge tablet being thrown into my mouth in case I had worms. The vet has a tricky way of making me swallow, quite unlike Lynettea's efforts.
Good news though: my blood tests show that I am holding my own, although I have to stay on the kidney diet. Fortunately it doesn't taste too bad.

Lynettea was sorry she didn't think of getting a photo of me having my tests. I ask you! A cat is entitled to some privacy. There is no way that I would put such a photo on my blog, even if she had it!

That's right. A vet visit with a camera isn't a good idea!

Thanks my friends for visiting.

I am also happy for others to leave comments on my blog, but please don't try to post comments that contain links to your on line businesses, or I will reject them.

Oh, Diamond, that sounds like a horrible experience. We are glad you are doing better now.

Great news about the vet results. Not so good news about the process getting them.

We don't have an on line business so you don't have to reject our comment!

Oh, poor Diamond. What a nasty thing to have to endure. I'm sure that Lynettea had your best interests at heart.

Cliff and Olivia, I don't mind if a kitty has an on line business - good luck to him or her, but I don't want to put a link on my blog to something when it is obviously just business advertising.
