Posts Tagged ‘doctor’s house’

What a week!  I was so embarrassed I couldn’t even talk about it until now.  Mom said I could put my art up today so let me start with the normal picture.

Ruff Day for Hemigway 2

Mom went to work Thursday morning and Steinbeck and I did our normal things.  We found sun puddles and started napping.  Shortly after that, Mom came in the house again.  I looked at her and wondered why she was home so early.  Then my mental acuteness kicked in.  I knew this was trouble and the trouble was going to involve me!

Mom tried to pick me up off the floor and somehow she managed to fall flat on her face.  I scooted away but Steinbeck stood there and wondered why she was on the floor.  She finally got up and started looking for me in all my favorite hidey spots.  I had her fooled.  Then she asked Steinbeck where I was.  That little squirt ratted me out and led Mom right to where I was hiding!!  Can you believe it??

We finally got to the doctor’s house.  (Yes, I had figured out that’s where we were going.)  Mom had trouble getting me out of the car.  She doesn’t put me in a carrier ‘cuz I weigh 22 pounds and normally I’m really calm.  I was calm this time but I was super slippery.  I turned myself into oil and Mom just couldn’t hold me.  I found my moment to escape and I went under her car.  She was in the parking lot walking all around the car and kneeling in the snow and ice.  I kind of felt sorry for her ‘cuz she’s told me that she has fake knees and it’s hard to kneel.  However, I didn’t feel sorry enough to come out from under the car.  Mom walked into the doctor’s house and told them I was there but I was under her car and wouldn’t come out.  They know me there and Mom said there was a little laughing.  Hmmmmmmmmmm

Next thing I knew, Marcus came out with this big net.  I wondered if he was going to try to catch a fish or a butterfly.  Surprise!  He used it to catch me!!  Do I look like a fish or butterfly??  He picked me up and carried me into the clinic and even though I voiced my opinion, I didn’t try to get loose.

What was my problem?  It’s so embarrassing!  I had dirty pants.  I have long fur and sometimes it gets matted back there ‘cuz I won’t let Mom brush me or trim me there.  She can brush me all over but not there!  So, I was ready for a trim and a little cleaning.  They also checked those nasty anal glands and made sure I didn’t have any infections.  I won’t admit it out loud but I did feel better after they took care of me.

When we got home, I showed Mom what a good kitty I am.  She opened the back door of her car and I calmly walked out.  Then I walked to the gate and waited for her to open it.  I walked through the gate and right up to the back door and waited for her.  No problem at all.  However, I did go hide once we were inside.  I didn’t want to discuss what had happened with Steinbeck and I didn’t want to hear him laughing.

When Mom came home again at night, I was speaking to her again and I even slept with her.  It was such a ruff day but I’m all better and Mom is happy that I’m all clean.  Oh, that Marcus said something about me losing weight.  That wasn’t necessary!

So, here’s my Caturday Art picture for the day.  I hope I didn’t bore you with my antics.

Today was my big trip to the hospital.  I saw it on the calendar so when Mom tried being sneaky about it this morning, she wasn’t fooling me.  I played, “catch me if you can” thinking if I made Mom really late, they wouldn’t be able to do surgery.  It didn’t work.  I was over at the doctor’s house bright and early.  Even though they pretended to be super happy to see me, I was afraid something bad was going to happen.

What really scared me was when Mom left me.  She walked right out that door to her car and forgot to bring me with her!!!  The nerve!!

Well, even though it was a scary day for me, I was really good.  Here’s a picture of me when I was ready for surgery.  Notice that nobody has to hold me?  I’m always Mr. Mellow at the doctor’s house and they just love me.  Now my little brother is an entirely different story!

All Done

They gave me some stuff to go to sleep so I wouldn’t feel anything.  This is a picture of me off in dreamland.

Hemingway Ready for Surgery

I’m glad to see they had me all snuggled in.  They said I did really good through the whole procedure.

Hemingway after surgery

Here I am after surgery.  My eyes look a little droopy but they’re wide open now.  Mom was so happy to see me.  She said they took care of two teeth….one on each side.  At least I’m still balanced.  MOL!!!

I just wanted everyone to know that I’m doing great.  Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes.  Poor little Steinbeck was really confused since I was gone all day.  I don’t think he knows what happened yet.

Mom sends a big thanks to the doctor lady for taking pictures of me while I was there so I could share them on our blog.
