Both Pierre and Newton went to visit the vet the same day last week. Pierre was scheduled for his six month senior exam, and Newton was scheduled for a dental cleaning.
One of the fun things about going to our vet is seeing the names of the other cats who are coming in that day. I want to meet the person who named their cat Xanax. Not to mention Kittenator!
Pierre got examined first thing. He was such a good boy for his weigh in.
I had been worried that he may have lost weight, but it was only a fraction of an ounce. If he hadn’t had to skip breakfast because of Newton’s dental, he probably would have weighed more than during his last visit.
He was really patient for the rest of his exam, too.
Pierre: It would be okay if we just skipped this part, though. I’m perfect!
While getting Newton’s paperwork in order for his dental procedure, I let him out of his carrier for a few minutes. He took the opportunity to check on his brother.
Usually, when Newton is loose in the exam room, he is running all over, and he is especially trying to get out the back door to the procedure area. It was interesting to see him choosing to stay close to Pierre, instead.
Newton: Don’t worry, I know the way out. It’s that door. My girlfriend lives back there.
Pierre: I’m fine right here, thanks.
Newton’s dental went fine, and he has nice, clean teeth now.
When it was time to pick him up, I brought Cupcake with me for a weigh-in. People have been asking me how much she weighs recently, and I didn’t know, so this was an opportunity to find out. She weighs almost 8 lbs now!
She considered climbing up onto Dr. Avok’s shoulder until she realized “You aren’t my human!”
