Hi, Cyndi here to bring you today's post.
August 16 - 22 is National Take Your Cat to the Vet Week and we joined with Romeo and his feline helpers to publicize it.
We have some good information for you, but first we want to give you a smile. Romeo took a survey and we just wonder which category each of you fall into.
Quick survey of Romeo’s cat staff friend:
When going to the vet, please describe your cat's behavior (you may choose more than one) --
Somehow knows what's up and runs to hide before we even leave - 43%
Won't get into the cat carrier – 60.2%
Won't come out of the cat carrier once at the V-E-T – 44.3%
Yowls and complains the whole way to the V-E-T – 67%
No problem, my cat loves the V-E-T – 10.2%
What does the staff at the vet’s office usually say about your cat?
What a loverboy/lovergirl! 31%
Hi Handsome/Beautiful 76.2%
I better get some back up 17.9%
We had to sedate him/her 8.3%
I’ve never seen such a ______________cat! 28.6%
Funny answers: Interesting, fat, feisty, big, neurotic, relaxed (actually paralyzed with fear), vocal, chubby, unique, loving, exotic, interestingly named, well dressed, terrified, pitiful crazy,
We Funny Farm kitties all yowl all the way to the vet and back home but we haven't had any unusual experiences yet.
And now a few common illnesses that if caught early enough may not require extensive – or expensive – treatment:
Lower urinary tract disease
Upper respiratory tract infections
So plan a feline visit to your vet annually. If you click on the badge in our sidebar, it will take you here where you can sign the form to receive an email reminder each year to take your cat(s) to the vet.
Have a purring and tail wagging day.
