Thankful Thursday Blog Hop:  Another Good Vet Trip for Our Dad

thankful thursday blog hop brian 04202023

Hello everyone, thanks to you all for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  I am always thankful to each of you for joining us!  Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today we are all thankful for our Dad having a good trip to his Vet. I do tend to mention this every six months and that’s a good thing.  We always wonder why when the Dad goes to his human Vet he doesn’t get stuffed in a carrier.  He did have to go on a fairly long car ride though. I think the humans don’t like their doctor visits every bit as much as us kitties don’t like the Vet visits.

Anyways, the Dad just went to his Dermatologist for his six month check up and we’re most thankful that he has a good Dermatologist. Our Dad had a battle with melanoma a few years back along with Basal Cell Carcinoma and on this visit the Dermatologist spotted a Basal Cell Carcinoma on the top of his right ear.  The Doctor removed it and now it is all gone. We are all most thankful for that! Hey, Dad must be formerly feral, he has an ear tip now.

So, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Ear tip! Heeheehee! You are very funny today.

I’m thankful your Dad keeps up with his dermatologist visits, it’s very important. I think he can’t get in a carrier to drive, but since he has to make himself drive to the human vet, that’s punishment enough, right?

We are certainly thankful for awesome Dad Terry having a good human vet visit. That is good that his dermatologist was able to get rid of that carcinoma before there was a bigger problem. XO

We sometimes wonder ourselfs about how Dad deliberately brings himself to his Vet. We mean, we fight it, and he does it on his own.

Maybe its because there is no one who can MAKE him do it so he HAS to make HIMSELF do it..

That is so good everything went well. I also got melanoma a few years back. I am also well now

I am glad your dad had a good visit to the human vet. I am also very glad his dermatologist spotted the nasty and dealt with it before it could become a problem. Regular check ups are very important.

Happy for good vet report for your Dad! My Mom is well experienced with melanoma and recurrent melanoma….checkups every 6 months forever and ever. Sending your Dad wishes for continued good reports!!!

Very interesting. Cats always know when there is a “feral” in their clowder (and we always had our suspicions about him even though he only had two legs and no discernable tail …).

Dear Brian, of course your dad and your mom have to take care of their health so that they’re there to take care of yours. And in a way he did get stuffed into a car, and stuffed into a doctor’s office. If that makes you feel any better too. We’re glad that they found nothing there that needs to be treated again.

So pleased to hear that your dad had a good visit to the Dermatologist. Cars are a bit like pet carriers, especially on long journeys, the only difference being is our humans can get out whenever they feel like it xxx

Brian, I’m glad your dad has a good doctor and caught that right away, removed it. ♥

And I definitely do NOT like going to my doctor…even though I don’t get stuffed in a PTU!

We are glad your dad had a pretty good doctor visit and the one small problem has been taken care of. Our Mom really dislikes going to the human vet too.

Oh we are so glad the people vet got that bad thing off your Dad’s ear. He’s real smart to go get his skin checked so often! We’re thankful our Mom goes every year and so far so good! (She’s after our Dad to start going too!)

Good doctor visits are a very good thing. I’m glad dad had one. Hubby and I go for our annual physicals the first week of March.

Today I’m thankful that our kitchen is about half done. The quartz guy was out yesterday to measure for the countertops. Moving right along. We’ll be happy when it’s all done.

Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday and rest of the week. Scritches to all the kitties and my best to your wonderful peeps. ♥

Brian, you made Mom here laugh at the ear-tip comment you made. Tell your Dad this..though he already knows it I am sure. Mom is redheaded too. She said redheads many times get into a fix because of their fair fair skin. Mom has had things frozen off quite often on her face and now her left arm…the car driver’s side of her body.

And MY mom hate going to her Vet as much as I hate going to mine! At least she doesn’t throw up in the car.

Your dad is smart to continue check ups with his people Vet. Melanoma is very scary.

We are thankful to that your dad has a tipped ear and that they found it and removed it. Bo’s dad has the same thing three belts with melanoma and two with carcinoma and just had his 6 months and passed it with flying colors this time.

The Hubby also claims to be a rescue, so he’s just like your Dad, Brian.
