Last Wednesday, we had to take Dashiell to see our veterinarian in Skultorp, not because there was anything wrong with him, but because we needed a health certificate to send to the insurance company to start his health insurance. We also needed to get him his EU passport.
As he was on the ferry and the train, Dash was much happier in his carrier with the top open.
Emma sat beside him and managed him on the bus ride.
Dash rode the bus like a seasoned professional.
It’s a long trip from our apartment to the vet, and we have to change buses in central Skövde. It’s not usually a long wait, and the weather was nice. Dash seemed happy enough.
Look at this bus riding champion!
When we arrived, we were put into the same examination room all the other cats were in when we went in for our annual checkup back in June.
Like any good Abyssinian, the minute we let him loose in the room, he proceeded to explore it thoroughly.
The first thing we did was put him on the scale and weigh him.
2.85 kg (6.25 lbs). Exactly the same as Lorelai!
Emma helped the vet with Dash’s exam.
She’s definitely a natural when it comes to taking care of cats.
This actually happened by accident, but we thought it was funny: I gave Emma one of the vet’s free magnets and it jumped from her hand onto his round tag!
Waiting for the passport to be completed, Dash got sleepy and laid down on his show book. Well, he’d only been in Sweden two days after his long trip from the States, so I guess he deserves to be a little tired.
After the visit was over, we got back on the bus and headed home.
