Wish me luck!

It is time for the girls to get their annual exam, and well.. the first and last time Molly went, I was both mauled and Peed on. Granted, she was not quite socialized, and this can lead to many a bad thing when they're not socialized, but still.. it's going to be rough rangling them, and I'm not sure if she had her rabies shot before we got her so that's the first for the poor dear. Here's to hoping that I can get away without the same type of experience tomorrow.

On the other hand, Paige is a good little bunny for all sorts of things, car rides included, and well here we are. I have already alerted the vet that Molly may be a little wild to deal with so if she gets the fang, she's not surprised.

Fingers crossed everybody.
Also, Note to self: get another top loading carrier tonight.

Good luck vibes headed to the girls!!

Crystal gets so frightened she peed the last few times she was at the vet...luckily she was on the exam table at the time!

Good luck! Jamie's annual appointment is next Friday, and I'm dreading it (as are the vets).

I don't have a top loading carrier however tip the carrier up and drop the cat in (wearing leather gloves and long sleeves!!)
I have to bring OX in later this month so I'm not ready for that yet!!

Best of luck. The "wild child" kitties can be a challenge at times. I agree with tipping the carrier up so you can drop her into it. It is both easier to get kitty in, and when they turn into a whirling dervish to escape, it gives you a second to close the door as they check the sides!

Good luck getting your kitties to the vet tomorrow!

The top-loading carriers are a godsend. I don't have any trouble getting Jamie into a carrier, but getting him out once we're at the vets' is a nightmare. Once again, he's got an appointment with two vets, because the vets' assistants refuse to deal with him, and it takes at least three people to subdue him. They call him "the cat from hell"!

Good luck, I hope it goes smoothly! Let us know how it goes!

Wrapping Molly (who looks like the has a 'tude) on a towel may help get her in the carrier too. Just a thought. GOOD LUCK.

Many good vibes!! I hope everything goes well.

I was amused at "Paige is a good little bunny" -- I often call Cindy "my bunny" or "bunny-bun".

Hope all went well on your vet trip. I think we've all had at least one kitty like yours and empathize
Do let us know the results when you can

Lots of luck going your way!!

Hope it goes smoothly Denise. When Rosie goes she's terrified and with her being a "tortie" i always expect her snapping at the vet when she examines her but she's as good as gold, because i just have to gently put my hand on her backside to give her a gentle coaxing to move along from in front of the computer screen and she snaps at me

Now Sophie on the other hand rolls on her back showing her tummy to the vet, and she lets the vet rub it no problem!, but she'll only let me do it now and again?!

Sammy was always very good at the vet until he was neutered. He was fine when I dropped him off, but when I picked him up and on every vet visit since, he has growled loudly (like a dog) the whole time he was there. However, we have since moved to a new city, so his next exam may be at a different vets.......maybe it was only that one vet's office he's holding a grudge towards?
So, anyway, I know how you feel about your kitties misbehaving at the vet's. Good luck and I'll keep my fingers crossed that everything will go smoothly.

It's funny you should say that - Jamie was good until after he was neutered, and he particularly seems to hate the vet who operated on him. I've thought about taking him to another area vet, but I trust the ones we're going to the most.

Amusingly, Molly was very good excepting the tendency to cling to any horizontal surface known to men. She even took the needles with only a little mewl, while paige , the clever duck backed into the needle Aw well.. they were very relieved to be home, poor angels.

Thanks for all the concern!
