I am SO sorry that you are dealing with that. I just don't understand why they don't listen to you!!! YOU live with the cat, YOU take care of the cat...they see him for a day and they know all about him? Please!
I'm going to hold off on requesting the records until I have had a chance to interview the vet at the Feline Hospital. I'm tired of jumping from one vet to another, I really am. I want to approach this with aforethought rather than just be reactive.
My biggest problem with the current vet is the lack of clear communication between his me and his staff, and his staff to him. Again, they were wonderful with Ginger, and they may think that I'm nuts, but it is imperative to me that I get the care that I DEMAND for my furbabies.
Part of the problem I think is that this vet is hard of hearing and won't wear a hearing aid.
I just spent a half hour on the phone with my friend Liz, owner of 9 cats - she's the one that just joined TCS but hasn't posted yet, silly woman, and she's the one that referred me to this particular guy about a year ago.
Her feedback about the Feline Hospital is that she thought they were very rude and didn't listen to her - so I'm thinking, OMG, if she thought THEY were rude but liked THIS guy, then I'm really in trouble here.
So I'm just going to try to get through today as best as I can - I don't want my anger being passed along to Ferris this afternoon - he's going to need coddling, and everyone will get a vanilla treatment, as I know for a fact that Ginger will hiss and try to attack him when he comes home smelling like vet.
I think I'm going to have to pick up some cheddar cheese - Ferris will definitely need a special treat once he's had the sedative work out of his system.
I just want this week to be OVER, and OMG is this what Menopause has in store for me regarding mood swings? I'm in deeper doo-doo than I thought, if that's the case.
Pass the tequila, please!
