Lugosi hates the car journey to the vets, and he always soils himself, hyperventilates in the cat carrier and gets totally stressed out. But at the vets he is such a good boy, making his mummy proud. Just look at him having a cystocentesis procedure done (extraction of urine directly from the bladder with a syringe – avoiding contamination otherwise incurred in a normal urine sample). Bless him! 🙂
Lugosi is just so amazing at the vets, I’m so proud of my boy! 😻😻😻😻😻😻 Even though he did do a big smelly shit in his cat carrier on the car journey to the vets (he always does that, poor baby). So now we wait for the urine culture results. Let’s hope his infection is gone for good this time. 💖💖💖 #cats #cystocentesis #vets #veterinarian #ultrasound #veterinariatias #tabbies #tabbycats #gatos #katzen #neko #ilovecats #kitties #cute #pets #animals #catstagram #catsofinstagram #catpeople #catlover #catlady #madcatlady #crazycatlady #catsoflanzarote #seniorcat #oldcat #mycats #catlife #meow #catvideos
Spider hates being in the cat carrier. He even got himself a bloody claw once because he tried to fight his way out. He simply goes ballistic in there. So instead, when we drive to the vets, I put him on a little harness and secure him with a pet belt that clips into the seatbelt socket on the backseat of the car. Except for meowing a few times, he is very calm, just lies down and enjoys the ride.
This is us walking down the alley to the car.
Spider on the way to the vets this morning. He *hates* being in the cat bag/carrier, always tries to claw his way out of it, so he wears a harness and sits on the backseat of the car instead (secured to the harness via a short pet belt that clips into the seatbelt socket). And he’s happy! 😸😸😸 #cats #vets #veterinarian #tabbies #tabbycats #gatos #katzen #katt #neko #ilovecats #kitties #cute #pets #animals #catstagram #catsofinstagram #catpeople #catlover #catlady #madcatlady #crazycatlady #catsoflanzarote #seniorcat #oldcat #mycats #catlife #meow #catphotos
Our vets has this poster on the wall inviting people to take selfies hugging their dog and then posting the pictures on the elpoderdelabrazo.es website and your Instagram.
Well, me and Spider thought that hugs are not just for dogs and CATS NEED HUGS TOO!
Lugosi (left) doesn’t look very happy, but I don’t blame him, because he had a thermometer stuck up his bum when I took this picture!
Poor Spider had an episode of vomitting and no eating recently, but after a quick visit to the vets and an anti-nausea shot, he was fine again within a day!
Bumped into this cute little boy at the vets the other day. He is looking for a forever home… fingers crossed!
Spider had to go to the vets for various tests (he’s alright though – just a geriatric checkup), so they shaved his belly and his paw. Don’t worry mate, it’ll grow back soon!
Back in June Lugosi had to have both his upper canine fangs removed. They were badly diseased and rotten and, sadly, had to come out.
I meant to post this earlier but never got round to it until now, but I just wanted to say a big THANKS to my wonderful vets Marga, Vanessa and Maria, for giving me such a big discount (two tooth extractions for the price of one!) and for taking great care of my old baby boy.
Lugosi sadly had to have both his top fangs removed because they were badly rotten and the gums around them severely inflamed, and for a long time had probably been causing him a lot of pain…
The good news is that as soon as he was home after the op he immediately started eating his wet food and demolished four(!) small plates of it! It didn´t seem to bother him much, and it appears that he was probably in more pain before than he is now that the teeth are gone.
I am so relieved that his recovery is going so well. I guess we worry far too much about our furbabies, but cats never cease to surprise me with the amazing healing power they possess and the way they cope with pain…
Pic of Lugosi´s top fangs after removal – the root is bigger than the tooth itself!!!
Lugosi at home after the operation – looking a bit worse for wear, but doing alright.
Lugosi eating with gusto immediately after getting home after the op.
Spider is much happier and calmer sitting on the back seat, safe and secure on his pet belt, than couped up in the cat bag when going to the vets…
Hey, can we get this over and done with asap?!
