Postcard Return Address: The VET

Hi everyone, Katie here.

I used to dread the man in the brown shorts who'd ring the doorbell and pound on the door. I realized though that he often comes bearing gifts. Boxes of treats, food, toys, even feathers.

I had no idea it was the MAILMAN I should actually fear.

A postcard came for me. Trust me, it WASN'T from one of my fans. I recognized the return address immediately. Westgate Pet Clinic. I looked on the front, I looked on the back, frantically searching for Waffles' name. Surely he must be due for something.

My hopes were dashed when I saw my own name. Some kind of vaccination, which we ALL know means a shot. And something called a Feline Well Check. That's just a sugar-coated way of telling me I'm going to be poked, prodded and inappropriately touched.

I haven't had my temperature taken in years. They're all too scared of me. I'd like to keep that trend going.


WAFFLES:  Hey Boss!?! You get to go to the Vet??? COOL!

KATIE:  You're kidding, right?

WAFFLES:  You wanna take the Waffle Wagon?

KATIE:  Ah, no. If I must go, I prefer to arrive sans wheels.

  4. Oh Katie, my Holly also refuses to allow the V-E-T to take her temperature. I don't think she's ever had her temperature taken in the 5 years I've had her. You and she are so much alike!

  11. Katie, we hate that dreaded card from the vet too. Too bad you didn't get to it before Glogirly did...you could have destroyed it.

  13. Wow Katie we are impressed. Even Fenris gets his temperature taken and believe us he didn't like it. Traitor Mommy helped.

  16. Most everyone hates the vet. Only weird ones like Waffles and my dog Maya actually like the vet.

  17. Oh no. We hate those postcards, too, Katie. We hope all goes well at that v-e-t place.

    P.S. - Waff, it sure was nice of you to offer the Boss the use of the Waffle Wagon!

  18. Oh I know what you mean Katie. I've been going too much lately cuz I"m on a d.i.e.t. and have to be weighed. Maybe you could bribe Waffles to go in your place.

  21. Oh no, not the evil vet! I got one of those postcards last month but I hid it. I think mum has forgotten about it. I am keeping my paws crossed that she doesn't remember.

  22. Make sure he gives you the shot in the tail. Maybe he'll miss and give it to himself. I'm in awe over the anal probe thing. Whoa!
