Maui's Complaint

Kitties!


Maui here...do you see my eye peeking out from in between the bars of the Prisoner Transport Unit (PTU)?
On Thursday I was, totally without my consent--or any warning whatsoever for that matter, bodily shoved loaded into the carrier and taken to the vet for an annual exam.

I can understand why Dr. Augustine wants to see me--how often does she get to behold handsome and crazypants all in one disheveled package--but I think she should visit the house once a year if that's what floats her boat.  Why do I have to be the one travelling?

I voiced my displeasure over this despicable turn of events in the car.

It's also on YouTube HERE

I shot my lasers at Mommy while we were waiting in the exam room.

And then I had to head butt her for a little reassurance.  Do you see those crunchy treats back there?  I got some!

Kitties, once we got to the vet's office I purred like a madcat.  I wanted OUT of the carrier so Mommy held me while I glared at a chihuahua convention over in the corner.  I kid you not, there were ELEVEN (Mommy counted for me) of them, yapping away.  I was all lovey-dovey with the tech who weighed me--11.25 pounds--and Dr. Augustine had a hard time hearing my heart cos my motor was running so loud.

I did not have an opportunity to anally shoot the thermometer.  Apparently there is a "note" in my chart and my temperature was taken by an alternative device in my ear.  I got fur in the vet's mouth instead. Serves her right for kissing on me, hee hee!

Anyhoo, I'm 100% healthy, and a year is a looooong time.
I'm hoping Mommy will forget...she's fairly feeble-minded, you know.


Happy Monday!

  1. Seriously Maui, I think you are on to something. I mean...there are a kazillion of you and there is one vet person. Why should you all have to travel?

  2. that dreaded travelogy!!!
    You purred? Sima does that too!!!
    I don't get it!

  3. Maui, you seem quite comfortable in the vet's office.

    Although it seems like a good idea that vets should come visit the kitties at home, can you imagine how many visits would end with, "sorry, she/he just won't come out from under the bed." Which doesn't sound like a bad thing, but the humans would still have to pay and what about money for treats and stuff?

  4. We felt for you buddy, those were heartfelt yells! But at least you didn't have to play thermometer javelin this year!

  5. You have a note in your folder, too? Princeton has a note, for different reasons. MOL! Glad your check up was A-OK. XOXO

  6. You know, Maui, when I was dragged off on that unspeakable day last August, I made NO SOUNDS AT ALL, not in the car, not in the waiting room either. The Human had covered the PTU with a small blankie so I would be less freaked out by the sights and sounds along the way, but she had to keep lifting the edge to make sure I wasn't dead in there. She woulda been happier if I'd been yowling, MOL! You have a wonderful singing voice.

    Oh, and tell Salem she's officially on the FURRari list. Maybe next weekend? Does she really want to stay in Vegas? 'Cause I'm thinking: Grand Canyon.

  7. Congrats Maui on a good report.
    I can't imagine being scooped up from the Lounge to end up in a vet's office. Awful!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Wow - with 13 cats, that adds up to more than one vet visit a month. - Yikes - Our V.E.T. is coming to the house next week to do annual shots, etc. I need to remind her to bring her scale so we can see what porkers these guys have become! T.

  9. Maui, your meowing made me run away! You made ME think I was going to the vet next!

  10. That is too many chihuahuas for any cat to have to put up with

    ReplyDelete
  11. What a set of pipes!

    They need 2 more chihuahuas to match your gang!

    And Maui honey? Mommas almost never forget, and in the event that they do, the vet's computer never does!

  12. Awwwww magnificent Maui!! You have a mighty voice!! Yay for singing out loud and strong!! Glad you are ok!! Take care

  13. Maui, that was a fine warrior song!

    We're glad you're hale and hearty and don't need to return...and that you avoided the thermometer where the sun don't shine!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh, NOT fun! At least it was over pretty quickly and all went well. Did you have to get a shot too??? Ugh, we hate those--AND those barky dogs when you go to the vet. We try to get there early to avoid all the dogs.

  15. i'm sorry to hear that the thermometer incident is now part of your permanent record.

    great job with the meOwing...

  16. You purred Maui - wonw our vet has only heard shrieks and been spat at!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  17. Those kind of adventures are not the fun kind! Glad to hear they left your butt alone and that you checked out as perfect, then again we all knew that, but I suppose your crazy mom needed to pay someone in a white coat to hear about your perfectness. Rock on!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Maui, I suspect your vet routine is just like Jenna's. You probably gladly get in the PTU to go home, too!

    p.s. If one doesn't offer sympathy in the car the kitty doesn't howl as much :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh, the singing! You were really telling her (and the world) your displeasure! We respect that. Sorry about that yapping, but yippee for treats! Purrs...from your friends at Colehauscats.com

  20. yikes....those mommies can be so mean.... glad you got a good report though

    ReplyDelete
  21. We so agree with you on the vets coming to us! It would be so much nicer!

    Bummer that you didn't have a chance to shoot the thermometer again, but at least it wasn't poked up you know where either!!

    Meowm is being extremely envious of your awesome catio right now. Us mancats could sure use the extra space with that little girl running all over the place!

  22. A good report is darn good Maui and we are happy about that!

    ReplyDelete
  23. MOL Maui!! I hear the Back Street Boys need a new lead singer!!!

    How shameful of your mom to mock you like that. Sincerely Madi

    Mom Tricia....WTG that was one fine performance you and Maui achieved.
    Hugs C

  24. My momz lol'd at this.

    Especially the thermometer part!!

    I didn't find it as amusing as she did acause I don't like going to the VET either.

  25. Well I am so pleased that the vet trip was a sucess. nother year now to make your mum forget.. Hugs GJ xx

  26. A Chihuahua convention??? That should be illegal.
    Glad you came home safe and healthy : )

  27. I think that if enough of us turned our lazers on the CC (chihuahua convention) we could melt them ALL just like peeps in the microwave! MMMMMMUUUUUHAHAHAHAHAH!


    PeessSS: If a turtle screeches in the vacuum of outer space, are there any kitties to hear it?

    You were a very brave mancat and we also sing all the way to the visit the Vet.

  29. Well done, Maui! No one can really blame you for kicking up a fuss in the car. I mean they locked you in a cage for Cat's sake!

    When we take Dante to the vet, we just put him on a leash, so he can look outside. It tends to calm him down.

    And you were such a good boy at the vet's, too! You get an A+++, dude -- the "+" is for extra treats.

    Last week I called you "Meowie Maui" in one of my comments and I think that moniker should stick.

  30. Merlin was being his demanding loud self and so I put Maui's singing on loud. It shut him up. Good job Maui, glad all is well.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Whew, Maui! What a traumatic experience! Here's hoping she forgets in a whole year too!

    A CHIHUAHUA CONVENTION? And you still managed to purr afterward? I'd be toast. Seriouslies.

  35. 11 Chihuahuas?????? You had to put up with 11 Chihuahuas? What on earth where the people thinking?

    Maui, you have a lovely singing voice, and I am delighted that your check-up went so well. Now that's all done, you can book your ticket to come and spend Christmas with me (blush...).

    Purrs,
    Sei-Chan

  36. Note in the folder about your thermometer trick ??!!
    Glad to hear you are 100% healthy :)
    LOVED to hear your singing in the car <3

  37. Oh Good Maui, glad you are all purrfect in health. Funny, you sound just like us going to the vet. Lots of singing. You take it easy now.

    ReplyDelete
  38. We think having 11 chihuahuas is way weird! We're glad your vet visit went well Maui and we loved your singing! You weigh less than I do. Hmmm.

    Purrs,

  39. Oh Maui you had us laughing our HEADS OFF!!!! You poor baby! What a song you were singing! We are soooooooo happy that you are healthy and we LOVED "I can understand why Dr. Augustine wants to see me--how often does she get to behold handsome and crazypants all in one disheveled package--but I think she should visit the house once a year if that's what floats her boat. Why do I have to be the one travelling?"

  40. Good job Maui! We are so happy to hear you are healthy, but we don't get how you could purr at the v e t office. We thinks you was under a lot of stress and didn't know what else to do, MOL

    Don't think I don't recognize your PTU, our Mom calls it critter cab-she is SO NOT CUTE!

  43. Why do humans always do that? I hope you got more treats when you cam home!
    The good news is the 100% healthy!

  44. Maui, we're surprised your mom is still standing after those lasers you shot at her. Check her to see if she's got two big holes in her.

    We're glad you checked out good.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh you sing like Derby does in the PTU. Did the vet get fur from kissing your asterisk?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Very brave but in the end they gotcha! It's a Merry Christmas when you are healthy and have a great family. We wish that for every cat and dog=^Y^=

  47. concats on your clean bill of health maui. i'm sure the the chihuahua convention (as you put it) in the corner were discussing how could one crazypants like you can look handsomer than all of them combine.

  48. And what a tenor you are! And a trooper too.

    If it makes you feel better, we have to take a 10-lb Muscovy duck to the vet on Weds. night. I think I'll have to plastic-wrap the entire car...

    ReplyDelete
  49. Whoa! No anal probe. I need one of those notes. Once Autumn was purring so loud at the vet that he actually mistook it for a heart murmur. What a jerk.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Maui, we are sure glad you are healthy! MMM nearly had a heart attack when she heard your might meows. Although, it could have been your mom's encouraging words that did it. Our mom meows back at us when in the car, and usually louder than we meowed. Its a good thing we haven't been pulled over.

  51. I hate being squeezed into the boxes and I hate the vets. Pleased you got a great bill of health :) and loving those lazer eye's :) xx00xx

  52. You sing a fine warrior song Maui. Glad you got a clean bill of health. I had to go to the vet last week because my pooper is working overtime and I got stabbed and had to have icky medicine for 5 days. I sat silently in the PTU and hoped the Beans would forget I was there, but it didn't work.
