Porsche goes to the Vets.
My World Meme for this week, do check out all the many other interesting posts.
Porsche goes to the Vets for her shot.
As we are going away for our annual holidays, on a cruise around the Pacific Ocean visiting about
5 different Islands, we will have to leave our dear little cat in Whiskers Cattery again, to do
so she must have current vaccinations against Cat flu and maybe other things. We arranged an
appointment for her with the Lady Vet for 3.30pm.
We told Porsche she would be going to the vets and got out her carry cage about lunch time.
Porsche took one look and headed outside, but we didn't worry because she is very obedient and always comes
running when we call her. However, when we decided it was time to go we called and called and called
but no Porsche, so reluctantly we had to cancel the appointment and get another for an hour later,
that gave us plenty of time to search all her hidy holes around the grounds, but although we did
a big search there was no sign of her. We were becoming concerned for her safety as she is never gone so long.
We started asking the neighbours if they had seen her, and checking garages in case she was locked inside one of them.
The second appointment had to be canceled finally, and we decided we would give up on vaccinations
that day. By now it was starting to get dark as it was now nearly 5.30pm. Just as soon as it got
dark and we were worried out of our minds by her loss, when we heard a chirpy happy little meow
in the hallway, and there lo and behold was our sweet little Porsche, saying "its much too late to
go to the Vets now its dark a little cat should not be outside so I came home."
I can tell you a little cat was immediately thrown into her carry cage and we re-rang the Vet who
said bring her right now since she is in the cage. Once at the Vets Porsche screamed her anger loudly
but she still received her shot, $42 later and we were on our way home, we will not need to take her
back for another two years.
I took this photo the next day specially for this blog, and you can tell she is not happy!
