My Vaccination Day

Hey, it’s me again. Carrots… the Magnificent! That has a nice ring to it don’t you think? You will never believe what my humans did to me today. Let me set the stage.

I had my breakfast and used the bathroom and enjoyed stinking my humans out. While they were waving their hands around I heard them say “Carrots needs his vaccines today”. I didn’t know what they meant so I meandered my way up front to my cat tree to get in my after breakfast nap. I was sleeping soundly and having the most wonderful dream of catching leaves! The way they flutter around like butterflies is just the most enticing thing and makes me want to grab them! Anyways, just before I actually caught the leaves in my beautiful paws, Jill, one of my humans, scooped me up in her arms and carried me into the exam room.

The exam room is pretty cool, it has these things on the wall that I can sleep on without being disturbed! It also has these neat little paw prints on the wall. I don’t know which feline walked on the wall to put those there but whoever it was I would like to meet him because what’s cooler than walking on walls? So, some more of my humans joined us in the room, one of the technicians Christy, and the good ol Dr. Gerald. I started to get suspicious when I got lifted up to the table but there was a towel on the table with a scent on it that seemed to calm me down and my peeps were petting me (even though I bite them when they do that!) and telling me how handsome I am! Of course I know how handsome I am but it is always nice to hear it! Then Dr. Gerald started looking at me and mentioned I could use a diet. I almost got mad, I mean, a little padding I like! I’m going to keep a good count on how many kibbles are in my bowl from now on just in case they start shorting me. But, on second thought, I would probably have a little more energy to do mischievous things if I lost a little weight and we all know how I like to be mischievous! What’s a world without mischief? Boring is what I always say.

Back to the Doctor. Dr. Gerald lifted my lip to look at my pearly whites and said they were great. Like I didn’t know that but again, who doesn’t love compliments! Then he looked in my ears and shone a light into my eyes. Man that was bright but not bad. I wiggled throughout the whole exam and growled when they took my temperature. I mean, why make it easy on them? Gotta keep them on their toes and not let them know that I actually love the attention! (Shhh, don’t tell them that part. That’s highly classified information) All of a sudden everyone was cuddling me up and I knew something was coming but I wasn’t scared. I had lots of moral support for whatever was headed my way. I felt a poke on my left hind hip, then my right hind hip, and then finally my right front shoulder. I didn’t get upset but I did flinch. I was surprised! Then I had a bunch of those yummy liver treats delivered right to me (Diet schmiet) and even more pets. I heard I was done so I jumped off the table and groomed my glorious fur back to where it should be and got a bite to eat. I was also told I am now protected against viruses and such and that I may get sleepy. Which I am starting to feel. So, I am going to take a nap now. But, in case you were coming to see the Doctors here and you are nervous of what is going to happen, don’t be. My humans are very kind (besides the overweight comment) and it’s not bad at all. I mean, a few pokes for lots of treats and cuddles? Sounds alright to me!

It’s a great thing to know my humans are looking out for my health and well-being, just as your fur children are being looked out for by you and our doctors here. Now, off to nap and then when I get up we will see what kind of trouble I can get into now that I am protected against those pesky diseases.

Ciao for now!
