WAFFLES: Hey Boss! Are you ready for our double date?
KATIE: Double Date??? In THIS??? There's so many things wrong with that statement, I don't know where to start.
WAFFLES: You can ride in your own carrier if you want.
WAFFLES: I'll even let you pick which one!
WAFFLES: I KNOW you really like the round one!
KATIE: Don't get too ahead of yourself, Waffles. Let's go back. Double DATE???
WAFFLES: Yeah! Glogirly said we're BOTH going to the vet on Monday.
KATIE: Whoa, whoa, whoa... the VET???
WAFFLES: Didn't you get the email?
KATIE: Email? Since when do you get email?
WAFFLES: We got an email from Dr. Karlin inviting us in for a wellness visit. Doesn't that sound like fun? I bet there's treats and games and stuff.
KATIE: Yeah like, Where's the Thermometer.
WAFFLES: Is that like Hide and Seek?
KATIE: No but come Monday morning I'm going to hide. And Glogirly's going to have to seek.
WAFFLES: Don't worry, Boss. I bet that Where's the Thermometer game is going to be fun!
A Double Date to Remember
That's right, Waffles and I are going to the vet TOGETHER on Monday. You may have read about Waffles and his recent Displacement Aggression. It's very common when just one cat from a household visits the vet and comes home smelling like... well, the VET. One thing you can do to help prevent that sort of thing is to visit the vet together. Not sure I'd go as far as to call it a double date though.

Yes, someone always goes with Ichiro. But that's more because he gets afraid of being alone...ReplyDelete
Allie: oh Katie, I can tell, come Monday evening, you're going to need THERAPY. *waves Mothers plastic card* You know, the expensive and relaxing kind.ReplyDelete
Awwww, I love the last picture. I'm sure you'll get lots of treats!ReplyDelete
Oh we're going to need video of this!!!ReplyDelete
Sparkle hated going to the vet, but she hated Binga and Boodie returning from the vet even worse, so she had to go whenever they went! It's different now - Boodie went and had a dental cleaning on Monday and when she came back, nobody cared. My human was relieved.ReplyDelete
Yep weez go to da VET togedder to avoid da hissy fis later at home. So weez boff come home stinkin' and bein' stuck. Not much hissin' just a lot of cat nappin'. MOL Hav fun yous two.ReplyDelete
Dezi and Lexi
Um, I hope you two have fun..I guess...ReplyDelete
We definitely need video of that!!! Love that last pic!! MOL!!!! Paw prayers that it goes well!!!ReplyDelete
"Where's the thermometer"? You crack me up!ReplyDelete
I have to go to the vet on Monday for a recheck and Wally gets to go along for the ride! We're having a double date too! Haha! ~ErnieReplyDelete
some of us get to avoid that thermometer game. :) have fun on your "date".....ReplyDelete
Oh Waffles, Waffles. I think that the "fun" of *that* game depends on who is hiding the thermometer. If you get there first, it could be an interesting game of tag and wrestling match. If the vet does, let's just say you will appreciate much treat therapy :-)ReplyDelete
We got an email yesterday too confirming Minchie's appointment with the VET tomorrow. Have fun on your double date!ReplyDelete
Uh, oh! That is going to be quite a song being sung in the car going over!ReplyDelete
Waffles, I'm not sure Katie is going to think the Where's the Thermometer game is very fun...ReplyDelete
I've seen people bring both pets to the vet and one is just there to accompany the other. We hope this will prevent the dreaded "strange cat" problem :)ReplyDelete
You better be careful you don't, uhhh hemmm...get locked in thereReplyDelete
Lily & Edward
Awww..that last picture is so sweet..Yes Waffles.."Hide The Thermometer" is kind of like "Hide And Seek"..MOL..only you won't have to look to far to find it..HAHAHA..ReplyDelete
Oh boy, oh boy, a road trip! [signed, Ringo]ReplyDelete
We never played the Thermometer game, but Angel Loupi did once : he told Zorro it was no fun at all, but didn't want to say why ! Good luck on Monday ! PurrsReplyDelete
Our two cats always go to the vet together - it's just easier.ReplyDelete
Well, no matter what you're calling it, we hope that trip to the vet goes well...ReplyDelete
That is really cool that your vet has wellness visits!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a very forward thinking doc!
Noodle and crew
Ahhhh, c'mon,,,a couple of cool cats out on the town. You two are gonna have a great outing,,,,well, at least I'll say a quick prayer that all goes well for you two.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your double date!ReplyDelete
Oh brother. Time to find a good hiding place.ReplyDelete
Maui would rather play SHOOT the Thermometer. Just so you know.ReplyDelete
Oh this will be interesting. We will tune in next week.ReplyDelete
We try to never go TO the vet. That's why she comes here. Giulietta did have to go about ten days ago, but Fiiona will always cuddle and snuggle with her no matter how she smells. Love the last photo with Waffles paw on Katie's Back. Hope no smacky paws ensued. Hope you will join us Sunday for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista JoReplyDelete
I can think of better places to have a date!! Just saying!ReplyDelete
This aught to be one interesting MOAN-day post then poor Katie!ReplyDelete
I'd watch out for that thermometer Waffles!ReplyDelete
