Doesn't this sound like fun?

Taking two cats to the vet by yourself on a day when the thermometer is registering zero?

I don't think so either.

DH brought the carriers up from the basement for me this morning before work and Nunzio took one look and was outta there. He does not do well in the carrier or in the car. I have never heard such horrifying noises. Zuzu does pretty well, however, and they're both so friendly with the doctor. They won't eat his treats, though. I've never seen cats that refuse all nourishment but their specific bowl of food. It's bizarre. I’m used to gluttonous monsters.

Anyway, the only thing that may save this situation is that DS is going to stay home with Grandma. I took him and Zuzu to the vet over the summer, and there's no way I could manage two cats and one toddler! It's interesting to note that on that occasion the mercury was around 90 with 100% humidity. Today it's zero. I can't win.


  1. Yikers! One of our cats loses fur by the fistful when we take him to the vet. You see all this fur flying out of the carrier in the backseat while we are driving. It's pretty weird! Glad that you don't have to fight two cats and a toddler in that weather! That sounds like NO FUN.

  2. Oh yeah, that sounds like SO MUCH fun! Wow! Godspeed.

    I have one cat that likes the carrier, and one that likes to ride in your lap with a towel. There's no way I can do both at the same time.
