Cupcake: Where are you going, Mr. Newton?
Newton: Hey, watch the paw! I’m going to my checkup.
Cupcake: Does that mean we can’t play right now?
Newton: Does this look like I can play right now? OW with the paw, kid!
Newton’s Vet Visit
Cupcake didn’t get to accompany Newton to the vet. After all, he likes getting all the attention himself. The vet’s welcome board had his name listed first because he’s the most important cat they’ll see all day. (Also because he had the first appointment of the day, but don’t tell him that.)
His girlfriend Josie was there to greet him, too. Another good reason not to bring Cupcake along, since you can’t be sweet to your girlfriend with a kitten watching.
There was a sign in the exam room letting Newton know what a VIP he was.
Newton loves to visit the back area at the vet’s office. Every time he hears footsteps approach the door that leads to the back area, he waits anxiously for someone to open the door so he can run back there and look for Josie. This visit, he made it through once, but he got caught before he could make it too far down the hallway.
Newton: What? I wasn’t trying to see who was in the kennels today. Really.
Newton is a senior kitty. That doesn’t mean he is old, but it does mean he visits the vet for exams twice a year. It isn’t his favorite thing to do, but he’s very good through the whole process. He had blood and a urine sample drawn, and he even had his blood pressure taken.
All of the signs in his exam were that he’s a healthy boy.
Newton: I could have told you that. Can we go home now? I’ll even play with the kid.
