Guess where I have to go today? THE VET!
MomGoth says, “It’s just for a regular checkup,” but that’s easy for her to say! She doesn’t have to get shots, or have her ears messed with, or have a *shudder* fecal exam. She doesn’t have to be stuffed into a little cage to go to the vet.
All right, I admit it’s true that Mom and MomGoth used to put me in a harness and on a leash instead of stuffing me into the travel cage, and I did refuse to cooperate with it and acting like my legs wouldn’t work unless I could run and hide under something.
But never mind that. It’s still I who have to go to the vet, and I don’t like it one bit! My only consolation is that I can usually manage to poop or barf on the way there or on the way home — or both each way. Then who’s whining and crying?
A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: How do you act when you go to the vet?

One of our cats used to go in the crate quite easily but he would force his paws toward the opening once at the vet. We almost had to resort to shaking him out 🙂

Our carrier has a removeable top, or we’d NEVER get her out!

You should try getting a mammogram!
