Tortie Tuesday

Last week Gabriel had an appointment to see the vet for his booster shots and a follow-up to the crystals in his urine.  Mommy saw this as an opportunity to bring me in for a geriatric blood test.


Of course, I protested.  Who is she calling geriatric?  I can run circles around that woman!

The rest of the Monkeys have not yet met Gabriel, but I saw that little rotter through the holes of our respective carriers.  I had to sit staring at him while the nice vet called him 'cute' and 'adorable' and showered affection on him all the while waiting for a 'geriatric' blood test.  This will definitely cost Mommy some future snuggles.  We didn't have a camera at the vet's but I gave Mommy my famous 'I do not approve' look through the wires of the cage.  This is a recreation of that look.


Finally it was my turn.  The vet told Mommy that he does not believe I'm 12 years old because I am in remarkable shape.  I think I might like that man!  He took my blood and gave me a smooch.

The blood results came back the next day and he called Mommy to tell her I'm perfect.  All of my levels are normal to above-average.  Shouldn't she have known this already?  I think she needs a geriatric blood test if she can't figure that out just by looking at me!

Mommy gets the Back of Disapproval for 2 weeks - 1 week with good behavior.

P.S. Gabriel's exam went just as well as mine did so the humans will finally get to introduce him to Samson and Delilah next weekend.

We can see from that look that you were not pleased about going to the vet, Bella!! But we're glad you checked out purrfectly!! And Gabriel too!!

Cat said...

Of course we knew you would be perfect Bella!!!! We can't wait for the weekend to see the first kitty meeting...please take lots of pics :-)

We could have told you that you were perfect without all the silly vet business Bella - now you and Gabriel have passed all your tests you'll be able to introduce him to your sisters and brother. That should be great fun.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Fuzzy Tales said...

Beautiful Bella, of course you're perfect. :-)

Were close to the same age. I'm a year older but when mom told me about SENIOR check up a few years ago, I was as aghast as SHE would have been had someone told HER that she was going for one!! How dare she. Concats on all of you having purrfect levels of bloods. xoxoxox

Fage said...

Glad to hear that all tests and vet visit as well! :D oh uh, back of disapproval!!

Cory said...

Oh, of course you are purrfect Miss Bella, we knew that! Why didn't your mom ask me? Sheesh.

Don't you just hate it when people fuss over the kittens...right in front of you. At least the v-e-t gave you a smooch.

Maggie May said...

Hello there, gorgeous Bella! So glad to hear your vet appointment went well!

Oh my, where have we been? We didn't even know about Gabriel! Momma has got to do a better job with visiting!

CCL Wendy said...

Oh Bella! It's so good to hear that you are so healthy. I don't think you're geriatric at all. Cats and humans seem to be much younger than their chronological age these days. You certainly don't look a day over 5!

Don't be too hard on your Mom, though. She was just trying to do the best for you that she could. You know -- an ounce of prevention and all that! I think she deserves a kiss and a cuddle.

Random Felines said...

Well of course you passed - what else could have possibly happened???

Glad Gabriel is feeling better and will be able to start making introductions.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Bella, we're glad your tests came back purrfect! Didn't the vet lavish attention on you too and tell you how absolutely gorgeous you are?

We're glad Gabriel's test were good too so that he can meet Samson and Delilah!

Pricilla said...

Whoa. That is some cat stare of death

Angel and Kirby said...

It is great to be in good healthy! WE don't blame you for giving Mom the back of disrespect!

Katnip Lounge said...

Bella, we hope you informed "the little rotter" that YOU are Top Cat at your house. Now if only your Mom would get with the program!
13 tails up that both of you are healthy!

Brian said...
