Vet Gives Mighty Lou Bad Diagnosis

Hi Whitey,

Got ya with that subject line, didn’t I? Nobody likes to get a bad diagnosis from a doctor or in our case a vet. But I got one this week. Here’s how it went.

Mighty Lou and Dr. Anita Holt

 

Dr. Anita Holt is both my friend and my vet. She’s the one who came to my house and gave me acupuncture. She brought treats and I didn’t mind one minute when she stuck those needles into me.

Mighty Lou and Miss Shelley

 

Miss Shelley is a witness to the good relationship I have with  Dr. Holt. She came over and saw first-hand how well-mannered I was during my treatments.

 

 

Mighty Lou is not fond of waiting

 

OK, so this week I traveled over to Dr. Holt’s office for my annual check-up. I took a seat and waited for the doctor. Mighty Lou demands service and doesn’t like being kept waiting though.

 

 

Mighty Lou Contemplates Jumping Off the Counter

 

 

At one point I thought I would leave the table and go look for the doctor myself.

On second thought it looked a little too far down for me to jump.

On the other paw, maybe I could make out better staying up here.

Mighty Lou Spots Some Treats

 

I eyed some treats over there and I just may be able to make that jump.

Just then though Dr. Holt came in and we had a nice little visit. She said I looked great (of course I knew that) and she would send her assistant in to take a little blood. Mighty Lou is not squeamish about blood. After all the medical issues I’ve had in the past taking a little blood is nothing.

I was wrong.

 

Mighty Lou isn't happy to see the assistants in leather gloves

Dr. Holt didn’t send her “assistant” in. She sent three wrestlers dressed in assistant clothing in to strong arm Mighty Lou!! Their faces looked friendly but they were armed with leather gloves up to their elbows and needles!

One of them took me down in a choke hold before I knew it. I didn’t hear her come up from behind me and I was down before I could react!

They said Dr. Holt told them I didn’t like my back end touched and they needed to be prepared. Prepared!? Give a guy a chance!

I may have been nice to them. Though I am known to nip a little (ok, bite) but give me a chance.

MIghty Lou is still held down by the assistant with the leather gloves

That gloved one never broke her hold. She kept me down the whole time they drew the blood. Even as they discussed it with my mom she kept her leather fingers around my neck.

Whitey, does this look like the face of a bad actor? Don’t you think she could have let me go? This is insulting.

I had my Cape Power tag on but next time they’re getting the full cape and maybe they won’t mess with me.

The diagnosis?

Well, every single report came back as 100% purr-fect! Mighty Lou is healthy and there is no evidence left of any of the multiple medical issues I came to Cat Depot with. I go down in the medical archives as a success story for Cat Depot.

BUT……I have “bad” written on my chart at Dr. Holt’s office. And the assistants have those big leather gloves hanging next to my chart for my next visit.

I’ll be ready next time though. They haven’t seen the last of me.

But for now….

Mighty Lou leaves the doctor's office

 

Mighty Lou has left the doctor’s office.

Until next week my good buddy,
Mighty Lou

 

 

Whitey Wobbles’ Vet Trip and Recovery and Get Well Wishes

Hey Mighty Lou,
I feel much better, so I will tell you about my week.

Whitey is ready to go to the vet.Well, my mom caught me and into the carrier I went. I did ask her to bring my cape along to wear during my surgery. Believe me, I was not a happy Caped Hero!  Mom kept saying I really needed to have this growth removed, so I gave in and quit meowing.

Cat HospitalIt only took a few minutes to get to the Cat Hospital and once I was there, all went well. Those girls loved me. They treated me like the Caped Hero I am, so I was nice and relaxed. Before I knew it, I woke up in a small cage and it was over!  I don’t even know what happened. It wasn’t so bad after all. The nice lady fed me when I woke up and told me my mom would come to take me home at 3 p.m.

Sure enough, my mom was there to pick me up at 3 p.m. sharp. I was sure glad to see her. A short ride home and I was in my own bed. Harley and Daisy treated me really nice. I slept quite a bit, except when my mom woke me up to give me medicine…I did not like that.

Whitey's ScarThe bad part is they had to shave my back and now I have a bald spot. They used glue to hold my incision together…cool, huh?  Anyway, my cape does cover the incision, so that’s cool. I’m all recovered and doing fine, so I will be back to my responsibilities soon. Hope you are doing more good stuff, Mighty Lou!

Until next week,
Whitey Wobbles

 

 


Mighty LouDude!

So sorry about your surgery! Don your cape and cover that cut, Man. Stiff upper lip. Caped Heroes can’t be kept down!

Caped Power Get Well Wishes,
Mighty Lou

 

 

Whitey Wears his CapeMighty Lou,

I did have my Cape on for a day or so, but I have found that I get much more sympathy and just about anything I want with the cape off! That way, everyone sees my incision and feels sorry for me. That’s Cape Power thinking, Mighty Lou!
