#SundaySelfies from the VET???

KATIE:  This is NOT how I expected to spend my weekend. Scooped up in my Sleepypod and carted off to the VET???

 It's not the kind of #SundaySelfie I had in mind either.



WAFFLES:  *from across the room*  Hey Boss! Are you having fun yet???

KATIE:  Waffles, you're only here as a ride-along. No commentary is necessary. Or welcome, for that matter.

WAFFLES:  Are you going to play Where's the Thermometer?

KATIE:  Not if I have anything to say about it. But by all means, go ahead. Have fun. Make it a party.


An Unexpected Vet Visit
Though I'm always the first in line for breakfast in the morning, Glogirly became concerned when I didn't show up Friday for my usual AM chicken pate. Even my favorite snacks weren't enough to coax me out of my cushy sleep spot.

After a quick phone call to our vet, it was decided that if I was still showing signs of a hunger strike the following morning, I'd need to get myself hauled in. So the whole family took a field trip to the Vet yesterday:  Me, Gloman, Glogirly and Waffles.

Please don't worry about me...it's nothing serious. I'm just having a little GI flare up and to be safe am now taking an antibiotic and appetite stimulant. Oh, and the appetite stimulant? WORKING! Bring on the chicken pate! 


Ride-Along Waffles
Since Waffles has a tendency to get his furry undies in a bundle whenever I come home smelling like the vet, he joined us as a ride-along. So now we both stink. But it's all *peace and harmony* back at the Townhouse. 

The moment we got home, and I do mean the MOMENT, Waffles apparently decided the ride-along was so much fun, he hopped out of his own Sleepypod and right into MINE.

Two minutes later... this is Waffles' #SundaySelfie:


WAFFLES:  ZZzzzzzzz.



We ♥︎ Our Sleepypods
Many of our friends ask for advice on pet carriers. We just can't say enough great things about Sleepypod.It's truly the best of the best when it comes to pet carriers and beds. They make trips to the vet much easier and less stressful and the vets LOVE how easy they make the examination process. We even love using them at home for hiding, playing and of course... sleeping.

  5. I'm relieved that it was just a minor issue, Katie! Sparkle used to be like Waffles whenever one of the other cats went to the vet - so she always had to come along too. Now, I come to the vet when one of the other kitties go, but it's only so that I get out of the house! I rather enjoy it.

  11. Oh poor Katie but what a lucky girl Glogirly was on the case so quickly. I think you cats forget how much us humans worry about you. We are so glad you are on the pate paved path to recovery and purr you keep going in the right direction. Good thinking to take Waffles along too, just for the scent! Saved all that reintroduction palaver.

  22. Glad you are okay Katie. I used to be horrible to Eric if he had to go to the vet, but then Meezer Mom told my mum to give our butts a dusting of baby powder. It worked!

  25. A family affair at the Vet...not really our idea of a Saturday outing...but sometimes it is necessary. Sorry for the tummy problems Katie. Glad you are now eating. Mom bought one of the rolling PTU's like Summer has since it is hard for her to lift the PTU once we are in it. Astrid will sleep in it when she wants to hide herself away. You two look super adorable. Thanks so much for joining and supporting our blog hop. It means the world to us to have you as furiends.

  34. I'm so glad that you are eating again Katie..I suppose that Waffles stole the chicken pate you couldn't eat..I wish I had a Sleepypod to take my Lil Tiger orange kid to the vet tomorrow..it's time to have his little fuzzy balls removed..He has a nice soft carrier to travel in but I'm sure a pod would be even more comfy..he cries the whole way there and back..Thank goodness he can't understand what Dr Susan is going to do this time..

  39. Where's The Thermometer is our least favorite thing about our Dr. Stabby. He always wants to play, more than we think any grown man should. We say it's his turn next.
    Had our own vetmergency today, and still recovering, but we love seeing darling Katie and Waff!

  42. Katie! I had to go to the vet on Saturday, and Dr. Holly took blood from me. Z-Girl asked for a full blood panel AND one for pancreatitis. I received fluids and an anti-nausea medication and this stopped the vomiting I was experiencing. We are waiting for the pancreatitis test to come back. So far, I'm eating better and not throwing up. I hope you continue to feel better, Tuxie Sister! The thermometer game is NO FUN....but chicken treats are yummy! -Purrs, Valentina

  43. A few friends have been to the vet and we did too yesterday. Just a check up fur us and so glad you are feeling better Katie. We will send some purrs just to make sure.
    We gave Dad the Kitty Rodeo yesterday with getting 7 cats in 7 carriers so I think he may be looking hard at those sleepy pods

  44. Our vet just drooled over our sleepypod yesterday, too! Allie loves it. We boys want it in Robin Egg so - yanno - we don't hafta be seen in public in PINK.

    So, Katie, you back on the good stuff and no more appetite Rx? Purring for ya. You can't go off your feed, now. Although maybe Allie should... ~ Maxwell
