V Is For Vet


Hi everyone, Katie here.

Well yesterday's pet psychic didn't see THIS coming. Either that or she was holding back.

I was abruptly woken from my peaceful slumber and stuck inside this carrier, against my will I might add. I could have sworn I had my kitty well-check at the vet just last week but according to my chart it's been a whole year.

I was in fine form and did not disappoint. The vet tech went straight for the armpit length suede gloves. The gloveless vet was living on the edge though as she looked inside my ears and mouth. Had I not been wrapped in a blanket like a burrito, I'm certain there would have been blood.

After the vaccination stabbing, I was allowed to retreat back into the carrier, out of reach and view of those grabby hands. Meanwhile Glogirly and the woman in the white coat were talking about calories and carbohydrates, giggling it up at my expense.

The good news is I'm down to a sleek and svelte 10.2 pounds and am no longer a contestant on The Biggest Loser. The bad news is I overheard White Coat tell Glogirly I only need 185 calories a day to maintain my girlish figure.

185???  Surely that must be a typo. This does not bode well for my freeze dried salmon habit.




Just a Couple Days Left to be Part of GLOGIRLY History!

Please help us be the best we can be by taking the 1st Annual GLOGIRLY Reader Survey. It's open through Wednesday, Nov 27 and we'll be sharing the results after Thanksgiving. ...when we wake up from our Turkey comas. 

Thank you so much for reading GLOGIRLY and thank you taking the survey!

  1. 10.2???? Why, that's practically invisible!! And they want you to trim more?? I think some Dr. Stabby is sniffing the anaesthesia.

  2. That's way smaller than Ichiro! And what I like about my vet is she's all about stable weight and not weight loss.

  3. You poor dear! You're gonna dry up and blow away! (that's what we say here in Oklahoma for skinny)

    We hope that is over again for a whole year. Whew, and on a holiday week! What kind of quack is that vet?!? MOL!

  4. Okay Katie, here's the deal. We have food. Wild salmon chips and a tiny bit of salmon jerky. Get Glogirly to send me your address and we'll send you some. mydogsam01@gmail.com or you can come live with us. We're black and white dogs, you're black and white so you'll fit right in. Oh yes, Glogirly can visit anytime. Gloman too.

  6. Oh Katie,

    There's a way to get out of that burrito, and my Simon was an expert while he was still here with us! I'm sure that he would have been more than happy to share his escape secrets with you too.

  8. Katie, I hate to tell you this, but that is probably all the calories Binga and Boodie get! And they both weigh in around the same as you (Binga a couple ounces less, Boodie a couple more). BUT aren't you supposed to be able to eat more when you consume mainly protein? Like the Atkins diet? Which is what we cats basically eat anyhow.

  9. Poor Katie, what a rude awakening. Still, sounds like it was all good news, except the part about your daily calories. Poor girl, you'll waste away to nothing!

  10. Oh dear Katie! You'll waste away! That so-called psychic should have warned you!!! That sounds like NO food to us!!! But glad you are well. We love the 1 disgusted eyeball glaring out!

  12. Katie, we're sorry you had to go through that...but good to hear you lost some weight. But, sheesh...GG is gonna be starving you now if you only get 185 calories a day. That's like...nothing!

    ReplyDelete
  13. 182 calories! What is the white coat thinking? Do they make low-calorie salmon?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Katie, honestly, i envy your weight. I, on the other hand weighs too light. Mom had to feed me more. Problem is, i wouldn't eat too much.

    Btw, i tried the survey again. It's weird. The mark wouldn't appear. I wonder why. We use ipad.

  15. geez - stabbing AND calorie restrictions???? rude, just rude

  16. 185 calories wouldn't keep a gerbil alive. That sounds like a starvation diet to us. 10.2 pounds sounds super skinny. Half of that must be fur. Hope you can sneak some treats on Thanksgiving so you don't pass out from starvation. When Jeanmarie was our tech before she became our vet, she would where the armpit-length oven-mitts to deal with Lily Olivia. Glad you survived, Katie. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  17. Tommie is just back from his visit to the VET and isn't speaking to me... Katie is looking gorgeous!
    Yours in solidarity,

  18. Katie I think you need to emphasize how GloGirl would feel if they told her she could only have 185 calories a day and see if that changes the equation in your favor. :)

  19. We think you look great! It's time for our annual checkups, too!

  20. OMC! What a frightening picture of you, Katie! You're almost down to my svelte weight and I get 2 1/2 cans of food a day. How much, I mean LITTLE food is 185 calories? Well, it IS 92 1/2 Temptations at 2 calories per.

  21. Wow, when you said 12.5 lbs, i thought you were talking about Waffles. You're kitten weight! Go, Katie! - Crepes.

  23. I am sure glad that vet thing is over Katie! There must be a zero missing from that calorie count!

  24. OMG that carrier photo is the sweetest!

  26. You need to switch to our vet. She keeps telling me I need to put weight on. Can you commute to Kansas?

  32. Maxwell: Well, uhm, but the average mouse only has about *calculating* uh 30 calories, so that's like six WHOLE ONES per day.
    Not that I've ever seen one. In person, you know.
    But it's what I hear.

  36. Katie it's time to bite your Vet!! I think you are good at 10.2. You will be the one stealing Waffles' food now!!

    Lots of love sweet beauty!!

  37. P.s. as you can see in my avatar that is our Kiki. Fatty Kiki. She needs to lose five pounds. Tell me your secret!

    A little difference is she has three siblings of the furry kind who can eat what they want and she is on Metabolic food.

    She's like mommy, a night owl. But unlike mommy she is lazy and plays just sitting down or lying down. Argh!

    I'm glad she has a little orange monster like Waffles who makes her run around the house!
