A whole lot of BIG!

I had to go to The Stabby Place yesterday.  I had absolutely no warning about this. I woke up from my nap to see "Her" looming over me being all sweet and nice and coochy coo! Before you could say "nip sausage" I was unceremoniously stuffed gently placed into the PTU and imprisoned for ten hours minutes while she drove me to THAT place. Needless to say I sang the song of my people all the way there and even wrote a couple more verses for good measure!

When we arrived we had to wait for another ten hours minutes and do you know what happened? I was still singing the refrain for the umpteenth time when the door opened and THE BIGGEST DOG IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD came in! I knew it was going to eat me there and then. You just know these things! "She" said "It's going to do no such thing." But I knew. I just knew! How did I know? You may well ask!  Oh, you did!  Well, it was licking its ginormous lips AND it was looking at me at the same time, proving what we already feared, that dogs CAN multitask! THE BIGGEST DOG IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD looked like this....


"She" said it's a Saint Bernard!!! I said no way was that thing a saint. Oh No! It was going to eat me. As far as I know saints don't eat kitties! Maybe someone can put me right on this? Anyways, it was a very narrow escape as THE BIGGEST DOG IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD was quickly taken into "The Back Room" and a short time later came out again wearing the BIGGEST cone of shame I'd ever seen. How I larfed! Now try and eat me, Bernie old chap!!

Then it was my turn in "The Back Room". "She" had to scruff me to come out of the PTU, but I didn't bite or scratch. I even allowed myself to be cuddled by the nurse for, like, forever. I am not an ignorant peasant. I know how to behave. I will gloss over the indignities administered to me, but enough to say that I was greatly discomforted!

The ten hour minute journey home was substantially quieter. Once back I realised I needed some succour so sought out BIG Nippage (Nip Sausage. Geddit?) who has come to me courtesy of Mollie and Alfie's shop and cuddled him a bit. "She", who has nothing better to do, has shamelessly videoed our private moment and turned it into a movie with music and everything! Ladycats might need to avert their eyes!

The Staff here. Austin has had his annual shot, but also as he has had problems with feline stomatitis, I have to take him regularly to be checked. A while a go the vet did a procedure using cryo freezing (tautological!) to remove the lesions and was quite successful, meaning his teeth have been ok. This time he could see signs that it might be returning, so will have to go back in a couple of months to check again. He might have to have another procedure! :( Happily his teeth are still fine and he does not seem to be in any discomfort. I am watching him like a hawk!

  2. Oh dear Austin that was NO fun. But Mom is swearing that each time one of us goes to the vet it's not good. I think she is more worried than us. We will keep purring for you and hope your teeth are better the next visit.

  16. What a trip you had. We're glad you're home and enjoying Big Nippage. ;) It certainly made you happy again after that "almost eaten by that Giant Dog" experience.

    We hope your stomatitis remains under control.

  24. We're glad to read that you survived to your trip at the evil V-E-T ! Your song gave you the strength to do it ! Do you know that that big big woofie is a SWISS dog ? He has the same name than a mountain (or the mountain was named after the dog, we don't know). Purrs

  25. New verses added the song of your people? Jenna would love to hear them. She's sings it real loud, too!

    We are glad you bunny-kicked your stress away at home. We're sending lots of purrs that your toofies remain in your mouth. Stomatitis can be terrible :(

  41. That is quite the ordeal those visits really do seem to be an Odyssey. Nip really does help in that.

  42. I sure am glad you made it out of that place alive Austin! And not in the belly of a big dog like that ;) My KKMM has stomatitis too, but she started having issues when she got older.

  43. We bet that St.Bernard would have loved you between two slices of bread Austin!:p Thank Cod you escaped his giant jaws! :)

  44. OH! Stomatitis! urggg.

    We are doing preventative stuff over here. Will try to remember to keep you posted whether it's working, when we next visit the stabby place. Right now we're using Tropiclean Fresh Breath, which has the great virtue of no brushing necessary or so they claim. Next we're going to look at Maxiguard, gel formula.

    But in a word or two: This bites!

    All the best --Barney
