As I posted on Thursday, we all took a trip to the vet last week to get check-ups and vaccinations. As soon as I parked the stroller in the exam room and unzipped it, all four of the cats jumped right out to investigate.
Lorelai and Izaak, not having had as many vet visits as Alfred and Angel have had, explored the room fearlessly.
As I’ve posted before, Angel becomes very brave in veterinary exam rooms.
Zak was the first to jump up on something.
Then he took it to the next level.
Rory is turning into quite the little princess of posing…
…except when her curiosity gets the better of her.
Whilst the cats explored the exam room, I got all their passports organised with the relevant vaccination pages opened. Everycat needed their FVRCP vaccines, and Zak also needed his rabies vaccine.
Freddy, of course, had to sit on the passports…
For some reason (and I honestly have no earthly idea why), the sink was of particular interest. And not only to Rory and Zak…
…but Freddy, too. They see sinks every day…I have no clue what was so fascinating about this one.
When Dr. Birgitta came in, the younger cats all rushed to greet her.
Angel, having had more experience in this situation, hid in the corner behind the cabinet.
Nurse Camilla and I weighed everyone.
Freddy could stand to lose a bit…but otherwise, we’re all good. In fact, the doctor commented on how solid and muscular Rory and especially Zak are. I told her how they eat (raw and Bozita, and a daily chicken neck) and how they regularly go outside to run. She was quite impressed with their condition.
After they all got their jabs (no photos of that, since I was helping to hold them), Camilla carefully updated all of their passports. Freddy helped.
One last note about our Freddy…
…when he wasn’t exploring the room, helping the nurse, or getting injected, he was trying to break into this cabinet. He worked at it from both the top and the bottom of the tambour door, but he couldn’t manage it.
He even checked the trash can! He is relentless in his quest for food. It’s no wonder he could stand to lose a few.
