You know what is a terrible idea? Taking both your dog AND your cat to the vet at the same time...alone...in the pouring rain. You know what makes this idea even worse? Thinking you have a cat carrier, then finding out right when you need to leave that you, in fact DO NOT have a cat carrier and there for you must drive across town with your dog in the back and your constantly meowing cat in your LAP. In the rain. You know what is just the worst idea of all time?? Attempting to get the dog out of the car even though you know she HATES the evil vet while holding the cat, in the rain. Your feet will slide out from under you and you will nearly break your neck (and nearly crush your cat). You will then run the cat into the vet alone and make some stranger hold your wet freaked out cat and go back to get your dog. Your dog that will pee on a coat in the back seat due to the HORROR of being at the vet. Fun times all around.
For the record Ellie is perfect. She just needed her shots. She was just past due, so when I made the appointment for Sam I thought, "well, I am SURE I can handle them both! How hard can it be???" Right.
Sammie had to go to the vet due to him throwing up ALL THE TIME, plus just acting a little weird. They did some blood work and we will get the results tomorrow. He needed a geriatric blood panel, which always makes me sad. I mean, is sixteen and a half that old?? I didn't think so. He's still a spring chicken!
My little sister came to our rescue and met me at the vet with a cat carrier, so the trip home was MUCH less eventful! Now we are just hoping nothing comes back bad with Sammie's blood work.
