Our Chloe has had diarrhoea lately so we took her to the vet to find
out what the problem was. Turned out she was slightly hyperthyroid,
so we'll be treating that. She's pretty old (about 16) so it could
have been a lot worse.

She's only been to the vet once before, years ago when she had
dental problems. I was amazed at how well she travelled. She
meowed a couple of times on being put in the carrier, but not at
all on the bus or at the surgery. She actually seemed to enjoy
the trip, looking around and purring with no effort to hide or
get out.

I wish Goofy was that relaxed with the carrier. It really bothers him

yay for Chloe's successful visit.

Yes, that's wonderful! Actually, both of those things about Chloe are
wonderful. Pickles absolutely panics when I put her in a carrier, which
why she hasn't been to the vet since I realized that.


Wonderful about Chloe, for sure! Persia gets so upset when she's in the
carrier she throws up


Oh, dear! Pickles used to cuss like crazy on the way to the vet. On the
way home, she would repeatedly throw herself at the end of the carrier. She
destroyed three carriers that way. I was still too stupid to realize she
did it because she was terrified, until the day she screamed when I tried to
stuff her in headfirst, and Waffles jumped me from behind to defend her.


That sounds like an in teresting story. Tell us more about what happened.\

Princess (Siamese RB 16) used to moan on the way to the Vet. One day, she was moaning loudly while we waited our turn to see Ted. A lady came in with a large dog and Princess was themn
as quiet as a mouse. I told Ted after her exam that Princess hated the carrier. He said "I'll betshe doesn't now" and Princess turned from him
and walked into the carrier for refuge. Best wishes. MLB
