Oh NOES! The Ebil V*E*T visit


Kitties!


The Baby here.

The past year I have had especially bad allergies.  I get tons of eye goobies and nose boogers and my ears fill up with wet wax.  Of course the Peeps do maintenance on me; Mommy uses her thumb nail to pick evict the bats from my caves and Daddy cleans my eyes and ears (and always lets me smell my Cat Wax, he's good like that).  I've been to the vet this year for a couple of steroid shots, and an antibiotic shot the time before last because my white count was high.  I also get Zyrtec when the sneezing gets out of hand.  It's just something I have and actually I'm just fine...sassy and bitey and opinionated.  And occasionally, sneezey.

Anyway, Daddy was performing his Cat Wax Removal duties Friday and decided that, this time, my ears were just a little out of hand, and I should go to the vet to have 'em looked at...and Mommy, that dirty rotten traitoress, packed me up and whisked me off to the vet Saturday morning!

I was quiet in the car--I like riding around looking at things.  I know, crazy but true.

Mommy took a little video of me waiting to see the vet.  If you turn up the sound you'll hear my grizzled croaking dulcet tones as I "meow" THREE times!

view it on YouTube HERE

And you know what?  Daddy cleaned my ears so well on Friday that there wasn't enough wax for the vet to take a sample!
::sheesh::

So now I "get" to have a broad-spectrum antibiotic antifungal anti-itchy ointment squirted and massaged into my ears once a day for the next week, which sounds worse than it is, I actually found it pretty soothing and quit scratching my ears afterwards.  Plus the peeps make a huge fuss over me when it happens, so that's good.  Hopefully this will be the last of my problems for a while--at least long enough for Mommy to stop calling me her little "Head Case"!
Insufferable Wench.


Happy Sunday!

  2. The Baby! I cannot believe what a good girl you were at the Stabby Place. Actually, I'm kinda disappointed in you, FDW. I was hoping for a little mayhem.

  8. Jenna sends sympathy as she has nasty ears, too. She isn't nearly as fond of the car ride, though :(

  9. We REALLY hate ta say this, but SOMETIMES a V-E-T visit is a good idea...

    Not that we suggest it as a habit...

  13. Your mom's dulcet tones were louder than your dulcet tones, Baby, but I tuned her out and just twitched my wax free ears at your dulcet tones! Austin xox

    (He did too!)

  14. We heard you just fine, even over the dulcet tones of your human's voice. (And LOL @ Austin Towers' comment.)

    You did really well, The Baby!

    BTW, Annie and Chumley never made a peep in the carrier, ever. Though of course WE sing our warrior songs!

  16. Well at least the Vet visit is over...wax on, wax off!

  17. Oh no, the Baby! I loved hearing your dulcet tones. I have a confession that the lady thinks is so gross: I love ear wax. It's very yummy! I hope those itchies go away quickly and you take advantage of the peeps' fussing in the meantime.

    Purrs,
    Annie

  18. Poor Baby, but you don't look too unhappy wandering around and meowing in that room. Hope the medicine makes your ears feel better. Take care.

  19. Poor Baby! Ashton was supposed to have ear drops like that, but she freaked out so much she still has the yeasty ears. We hope that your ear drops help you feel lots better soon. If they do, could you tell Ashton about it so she'll let the peeps help her, too?

  25. Da Beebs absolutely LOVES to get his ears massaged. Maybe you are like him?

    Actually, we thought you looked quite cool, Baby! Your Mo sounded rather more stressed than you!

  27. Poor The Baby! You kept going back to your PTU to escape, but evil mommy had closed it so you couldn't get in. I don't get waxy ears, but sometimes mum has to clean out the dirt that gets in them when I roll outdoors.

    ReplyDelete
  28. We hope your ears get all cleaned up soon The Baby! You look very comfy at the v-e-t. Your mom's dulcet tones sound an awful lot like yours! We bet you can get a show on the Strip with that pole dancing!

  29. You were very good at the Stabby Place! We hope that the meds work well for your lil ears.

  32. I wish I could hear the video. Kassey hated those car rides to the her ebil vet. Baby, you'll be all betters now with the meds.

    ReplyDelete
  33. so sorry you are having these ear troubles and that you had to go to the vet! That is never fun.

  34. Toby had yeasty waxy ears despite various prescription ear drops and washes. We did a food test and determined that he was allergic to chicken plus we had him tested for allergies (embarrassing as one of the things he is allergic to is human dander). He now gets half a generic Zyrtec crushed up into his canned food every morning plus he gets his ears cleaned weekly with Vetericyn. Hope you are feeling better - that itchiness is terrible!

  43. Some of the kitties who have gone to the RB had allergies, and the humans were having to do the same things to them that you have done to you. Sorry about the vet trip but hope the current treatment helps you. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
