A Happy Ending Vet Visit

WAFFLES:  Where are you going, Boss?

KATIE:  Where do you think, Waffles?

WAFFLES:  You're not going to come home all smelly again are you?

KATIE:  Not if I can help it.

WAFFLES:  Good, because the last time you went to the you-know-where, you came home smelling like you-know-what. 

KATIE:  Heated seats, classical music. Nice try, Glogirly.

KATIE:  Back to the scene of the crime. Perhaps I can create a diversion and locate an escape route.

Or hide. 

KATIE:  That's it? We're done? I can go home? No needles? No medications? No dental procedures?

KATIE:  Happiness is you-know-what in the rearview mirror.

About Today's Photos
Life is good in Katie's world. She had her final followup visit at the vet this week. Just a quick in and out looksee to make sure everything is looking healthy in her mouth following her dental surgery. It was three weeks ago today she had four pretty big tooth extractions. 

She's doing absolutely great. She's started grooming again, playing floor hockey with her fuzzy balls, and is even back to her mealtime pattycake games with Waffles.

When Katie was at the vet, Glogirly remarked that she was sad that Katie wasn't able to pick up some of her larger toys. In particular, her "babies." Katie has a couple of toys, a large green frog and a stuffed red monster toy that she carries around in her mouth while meowing. She doesn't play with them, just carries them around the house, often dropping them near Glogirly. Surprisingly, Waffles never touches her babies. 

Dr. Fern told her not to worry, that Katie would be carrying around her baby in no time.

Just minutes after they got home, this happened.

And then this happened.

*Somekitty* has always got to investigate some other kitty's Sleepypod.


  1. MOL! Yes, things are back to normal at your house!

  2. Hehehe all is well in the world of Waffles!Glad you're doing well Katie,xx Speedy

  3. I love this story! So happy Katie is doing well AND carrying her babies! That is so cool. Mine can only carry smaller toys. Katie is like a dog. Don’t tell Waffles! That’s a whole lot of new smells!

  4. I am so pleased Katie is doing well, although Waffles is a little bit TOO keen on that Sleepypod!

  5. Glad things are back to normal! Waffles had better not let The Boss see him there!

  6. Oh Katie girl, hooray! You are carrying your babies! And Waffles, you are just the ultimate curious Cat! All is well in the Mountain House...

  7. I'm glad Katie is feeling better.

  8. So happy all went well with the visit to the vets. Love the rear view mirror saying. Made my day when Katie managed to carry one of her babies in her mouth. Then when I saw Waffles,s cheeky looking face I just had to laugh.x😻🐾🐾🐾

  9. Yay! We’re so glad things are back to normal at your house. Enjoy your babies, Katie!

  10. Toby had to figure out how to carry his fav toy too, with just one fang. But he eventually managed it. We're happy that Katie is finished with all dental stuff.

  11. YAY Katie!! We are so glad you got a great report and are back to carrying around your toys too

  12. And things are back to normal again... Great news ! Purrs

  13. Very glad that Katie is back to herself again. And that Waffles is well, Waffles

  14. I bet tears came to your eyes when you took that photo of Katie and her stuffie :)
    I love the rear view mirror photo on so many different levels, and that hot pink seat belt.. is that just for Katie's benefit? (or is it really red and it just reads hot pink on your pink website?)

    1. Tears, definitely! Happy ones.

      The seat belt is actually red, but you're right, it does look pink here! Let's just let Katie keep thinking they're pink. haha!

  15. Chey always loved to carry around some toys too. Ham is that way as well. It is so funny why some cats do certain things and not others.

  16. It's great that Katie is doing well, and that Waffles didn't have to go into avoidance mode again!

  17. YAY Katie!!! Soooo happy all turned out well and the photo of her carrying her "baby" was just pawesome and Waffles cracked me up! catchatwithcarenandcody

  18. Yay! We're so glad to hear Katie is back to being Katie again!!

  19. We're happy to hear Katie had her final checkup. Carrying her big babies around just seals the deal :)

  20. Happy that Katie is doing well. Derby had a soft toy he used to carry around too. Plus he would make special sounds like "merf" while he carried it. Usually at night, very loud to wake mum up.

  21. We too are happy to hear Katie is doing well.
    Have a spectacular Sunday...

  22. So happy to hear how well Katie is doing...and we love seeing her carrying her beloved toy again! Purrs from the Zee/Zoey gang.

  23. Mom has been so slow at reading things lately. She says she just gets too tired at work. We're sorry that Katie had to go through the dental thing but we're so happy she's all better now and can carry her babies around. We loved the video of you two at meal time. Mom watched it over and over and laughed and laughed.
