Believe it or not some people are either scared or intimidated by this guy. Seriously. Like he’s a sweetheart… unless you give off the vibe that you mean him or his family harm. Or you’re a bug. LOL He LOVES the ladies, and any lady that doesn’t get sucked into his will is immediately suspect. Sadly it has happened recently, and I have gone to great measures to rectify the situation.
As many of you remember, when Jadzia was sick back in January I rushed her off to the emergency vet and found the most amazing cat whisperer vet. I’ve never forgotten and it came in handy.
Last Wednesday, I took Curzon to his normal vet clinic – the one I’ve been using since Nimbus got so sick like 10 years ago and they were the ones that finally saw what I knew and saved his life. I knew the vet that owned the clinic had sold it, but when I made the appointment they never warned me I’d be seeing a different vet, nor did I suspect anything of the sort. So imagine my shock when this new vet walks in! She walks in with (I suspect) 2 college student interns. One takes one look at my cat and walks away, the other stands next to him but never gets down on his level, scritches him, sweet talks him, nothing. *Radar Level Red*
Mind you she’s never seen Curzon before, so you’d THINK she’d ask questions about how he is, etc. NOPE. She just does the quickest physical exam EVER – like less than 5 minutes! And then she has the nerve to ask me how much of his thyroid medicine I’m ACTUALLY giving him! *Radar Level Livid* After I (politely) straightened her out, I got my cat, paid, got his medicine and left.
Second appointment scheduled with the REAL vet for the end of this month within an hour or so, but I was not back to normal for hours. Curzon I don’t think was either, but because he is so in tune with my emotions he knew I wasn’t ok.
Let me get this on the record… As if I need to…
Curzon is the cat equivalent of my first-born son. He was my very first rescue, though in all honestly he could very well be considered stolen. But the dude that had him in his hands never objected LOL. His LIFE depends on that medicine. If I adjust medication dosage it would be in consult with the vet. I know what I’m doing. He’s not the first sick cat I’ve had. He’s actually the LEAST sick cat of the three *thank Bast* and his thyroid is totally under control (I hope) with the meds. I would NEVER do anything that would risk his health or life.
ANYONE who insinuates that I would will be dealt with promptly and severely.
In the vet’s case, it’s taking his care elsewhere and leaving a polite but sharp review on Yelp. I’m not one for doing that, but you mess with my cat, you’re going to get it.
Curzon is my kid, not just a cat. He means more to me than anything. If it were not for him, I wouldn’t have even found him the best CatDaddy ever! So please, spare me.
