Aby-a-Day – 19 March: Angel at the vet (Medical Monday)

The first time we took Jacoby and Angel to the vet was in September 2016. We went to introduce ourselves (which turned out to be pointless since we ended up going to the other vet in in town), to get a refill of Angel’s Amitriptyline prescription, and to get both Jake and Angel their EU Passports (about which more in an upcoming post).

Angel can be a little skittish and fearful at home, but she loves to explore when we’re at the vet.

She’s so cute when she’s curious.

Before the passport can be issued, the vet needs to scan her microchip to make certain she is really herself and not an imposter. Microchips are much more important in Europe than they are in the States. Besides being listed as the cat’s version of a social security number, they are also required for pet insurance, and every cat’s microchip is scanned when you check in at a cat show.

Yep, Angel is Angel!

Jake is happy to just chill on a chair while Angel explores.

Angel watches as Björn takes Pyret out of her carrier.

While the vet and Björn attempt to have Pyret examined, Angel checks out the floor again.

Abys are so different from other cats at the vet.
