Mancat Monday: Today Is Take You Cat to the Vet Day

mancat monday brian 08222022 TakeYourCatVetDay

Hello everyone, I hope your weekend was a good one, ours was pretty good, we had some rain and some cooler temps, so that’s always a plus. Our new sister Kiki is continuing to heal up from her spay surgery but keeping here kittenish energy in check sure hasn’t been easy. I don’t think Kiki has a slow speed MOL.

Hey, today is Take Your Cat to the Vet Day, it really is, but that doesn’t mean that you have to do it today, but if you don’t, you should at least make an appointment for your cat or cats and get it on the books. I don’t really mind the Vet visits, I don’t like the car ride, but I sure do have lots of experience going to the Vet, seems like I go quite often.

Vet visits on a regular basis are might important, we need to be checked out so that we continue to be as healthy as we can be. Y’all know that us kitties are so good at hiding our pain or hiding when we don’t feel well. Regular Vet visits can help identify problems or potential problems before they rear their ugly heads.

Of course there are some signs you can look for, are we eating less or more than what is normal for us? Are we hiding more? Is our weight normal, have we lost weight? Are our shots up to date? Regular and routine blood work can help identify any issues we might be dealing with.

So, let’s get those Vet appointments made, you know you need to, so do it. Keep this in mind…preventative care is a lot cheaper than emergency care. Y’all know that is true. Besides, you love us and we’re worth it. We’ll be happier and so will you.

Okay, that’s my message for today, have a fun Monday and a terrific week, I hope to see ya soon. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Vet visits are not welcome, but very important.

Thanks for the reminder dear Brian. Mom is taking me to the vet this month as I am due for one of my annual shots. So important to keep me protected since I’m an outside/inside cat. Thanks for being the official HOST for this important reminder.

Hugs, Teddy

Brian how could you remind my mom has to make me an October appointment. I hate the car ride, I hate The Strangers poking and prodding on me, I hate they tell me that I’m too fat. I’d rather just skip it all and make Lynn get all the poking and prodding. But she’ll make me go and then I’ll come home and she’ll give me an extra treat when it’s all over. Precious

While I am not a fan of going to the Vet it is important for checkups.
At least our Vet and staff are pretty nice 🙂

Time for vaccines :-/ Not fun, but must go! The trip to the vet ain’t hard, but to get them to the carrier is challenging.

You’re a good representative for this day! You’re a brave ManCat even if you do hate the car ride.

You’re right, Brian. Our babies need to be checked often to make sue we’re as healthy as we can be. The older you get the more you go. I’ve never had a kitty that liked car rides.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches all around and my best to your peeps. ♥

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren

I totally forgot that day is today! I am excellent about taking my cat to the Vet (except for when he needs a nail trim like he does now), it’s just too warm to make him go into the car for that (and nope, obviously I don’t do it myself!)

Hey Brian…….just hope there is no shots involved for you babes!! My girls said you need to have a girls cave day!!

Yes Brian, it’s great that you have become accustomed to going to the vet, even if the car ride is a little gnarly. I think you are smart enough to know that the vet is there to help you.

Dani is so anxious that she foams at the mouth. Definitely not a good look.

Emergency room visit is costly for us human as well.

We have a great vet, and she’s right across the big highway so it’s only a 5 minute ride. That’s a good thing, since most of the cats here sing the song of their people the whole way. Our appointments will come up in the fall.

Hi Brian! This is a wonderful reminder. You sound like Tylan – he loves the vet, but he hates the car rides. Regular blood work is so important. We were just getting a baseline on Tylan last November since we think he’s 7 now. Boy did we get a nasty surprise when the tests revealed that he has hyperthyroidism and kidney disease – none of us expected that! I am thankful I do blood work regularly when they get to be seniors because he was showing no symptoms of illness. Things could have gotten worse if we hadn’t done his… Read more »
