Vet Visit

I went to see Ben Vet today for a check-up cos I was long overdue one! Meowmie went to the Vet Place last week to get my foods and got a gentle reminder from Caroline Vet to book me in for an appointment...so off we went this morning. I had a new chauffeur today, he was a very chatty Indian Cockney and thought I was beautiful...although he did ask what I was! He though I looked like a weasel or a stoat!

A Weasel

Me


When I arrived the Irish Dancing Girl on reception said she was relieved to see me cos she hadn't seen me for sometime and was concerned that 'something had happened'! Ben Vet then came to get me and took me into his room for my consultation. He told Meowmie that he was considering writing about me for one of his study papers but he had a restriction of only 1500 words...and he said I was far too complicated to sum up in 1500 words! He said his papers basically follow a simple format something like...X had this, we treated X like that and X lived/passed away. I like being complicated!

Ben Vet then listened to my heart and checked all my vitals and I have put on weight! A lymphoma kitty putting on weight is a GREAT thing indeed cos conversely weight loss is a very bad thing indeed, it is usually one of the Bad Signs to watch out for. I now weigh...3.89kg (8.6lbs)! That is the heaviest I have been since I got diagnosed in December 06. Ben Vet's only concern was the amount of poo blocking me up....so guess what?...I had The Most Beautiful Siamese Cat In The World done today! Ben Vet and Meowmie discussed whether the poo blocking me up was skewing my weight, but then they realised that I am always blocked up with poo...so they decided not to take into consideration the Poo Factor. Ben Vet chuckled and said he will make a note about Poo Factors and estimated that I constantly have a Poo Factor of 2. I finks he was just joking around!

Ben Vet then clipped my claws and gave me some more steroids to take home and off we went. Meowmie went to the ATM to get some cash but it was broken so we had to go home on the BUS!!! It was a red london bus, like the ones the tourists like. Here is me on the bus in my Prisoner Transport Unit:


Note, the special lining in my PTU in case I 'exploded' after having The Most Beautiful Siamese Cat In The World done to me! I was a GOOD GIRL though cos I waited til I got home and then I RAN LIKE THE WIND to my tray and did some emptying. I then decided to sick-up in the lounge too, just for good measure. I then refilled myself up again with foods! So, all-in-all, a good day! :)

I'll be around later to catch up and say hello to you all! x

Sicking up is far more fun on other people's things rather than in your own carrier. I am very happy about the good news Storm.

I do not think you look like either a weasel or a stoat. You look more like The Most Beautiful Siamese Cat in the World. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.

Black Cat said...

I don't think you look anything like a weasel or a stoat dear Stormie! Good news that you've put on weight and you were such a good girl not to poo when on the bus coz sometimes it's unavoidable when a kitty has had a The Most Beautiful Siamese Cat in the World:) xxx

Princess said...

Sounds like its quite an event when you go to see Ben Vet. Ian Vet was going to write something about me but never got around to it. You weigh now what I weigh!!

Your vet sounds very funny and nice. I am sorry you had to have The Most Beautiful Siamese Cat In The World. I hope it was not too terrible. I am very proud of you for holding the "beautifulness" inside you until you got home.

I guess you are not bunged up any more. (Is "bunged up" a common saying where you live? It always makes me giggle).

China Cat said...

I don't know what a stoat is but you surely don't look like a weasel! I'm very happy that you have gained some weight and that Ben Vet was pleased with you! You look very brave in your PTU in the red london bus!

Purrrrrs, China Cat

You do not look like a weasel!!!
It sounds like you had a very busy day. We're glad that you had a good check up with Ben Vet. And that you got to wait after your The Most Beautiful Siamese Cat in the World. Sometimes you just can't wait - and that would be super embarrassing on the bus.

Happy Monday/Tuesday to you!

Hello Storm, we saw you over at Rascal's and came by. You are absolutely enchanting and not at all rodent like. We love your sense of humor and your joie de vive.

That weasel is cute, but you are beautiful - there's a difference!

I'm so glad you could wait until you got home - imagine being on that bus and letting go!

That's great news about your check-up ...

We're glad you are doing okay. We like your euphemism for you know what.

How could anyone mistake beautiful, elegant you for a weasel?!?!?! Humph. I'm so glad you are doing well and putting on a bit of weight.

We almost forgot - the lens Mom's been using a lot lately is the Canon 85mm 1.8 ... she likes it better than the 50mm because the background blur is better.

Hi furry fighter,

It sounds like you had a very busy day indeed. We are so glad to hear that everything went well at the Doctors office! Thanks for stopping by our blog. We would love to get to know you further. Unfortunately, we where never able to get medical insurance on Moki. He was too little when he got sick, and I knew this at the time of adopting him. I'm so glad that your mommy however had coverage on you!

Purrs and Headbutts for your continued health!

Camie's Kitties said...

We are so glad that your vet visit went okay and that the Most Beautiful Siameze Cat in the World treatment got everything flowing again. We are sorry you have to have them.

We agree with what Mickey said about your cabbie - he must have been blind.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Storm, you are such a beautiful Siamese cat, I don't know how anyone could think you look like a weasel or a stoat! Was the bus ride home fun?

Sorry to hear you are constantly blocked up. :( That can't be fun. But we are glad that you are gaining weight! You weigh more than either of us! :)

To answer your question: Yes, Merlin's body shape is a little different from Dragonheart's. Merlin's a little more "stocky" for lack of a better word - he has a broader chest and his legs are set a little wider apart. Our profiles are slightly different too - Merlin's is more like a Meezer's, but not as extreme as a modern Meezer.

Karen Jo said...

I am so glad that you are gaining weight, Storm. It's sad that you always get to be the Most Beautiful Siamese Cat in the World, but I'm glad that it helps you. Very nice work in waiting until you got home to explode at both ends.

Isis said...

What a silly chaffer they laid on for you, to think you might be a weasle! Honestly some people need educating about cats! ;) I'm glad your vet thought you were going well and iffen you've got a Poo Factor of 2, what's Baby Mao got?! ;) You're very good to have waited until you got home to explode, Mummy has to use special liners in Tigmut'hep's PTU cause he explodes just cause he's in one! ;)

Sunny's Mommy said...

Congratulations on the weight gain! That's great news!

So sorry you had the The Most Beautiful Siamese Cat In The World done. Ugh.

Java's Coffee House said...

So basicallys you're putting it in one end and having to have help getting it out the other end, that can't be fun. But it's good that you've put on weight, maybe your poo maker will start working better.
