Thank god it's just once a year!
So yesterday was the annual trip to the vet for shots with our 3 girls. Sukie got to ride on her own as befits her status as 'top cat', Cal-Jo and Bon-Bon got to ride together, we were hoping Bon-Bon might calm Cal-Jo down. Well how wrong we were! Cal-Jo is more like a dog barking when you get her in a moving vehicle, for a smallish cat she can sure make some decibels and just never lets up!! You can just see Bon-Bon peeking out thinking 'what did I do to deserve this box mom'?Poor little Bon-Bon just hunkered down beind her and never made a peep, wondering what all the fuss was about. We all had a headache by the time we had made the 30 mile journey to the vet and she was voted first up to get her shot, for being such a pain in the arse!Here's Bon-Bon with the lady who saved her when she was so tiny and got Pneumonia, our lovely vet Belinda. As you can see she doesn't appear to be showing much gratitude, even though we just took her along so Belinda could see how big and lovely she is now.We found out that they have recently discovered that if your cat is vaccinated on time each year, then after 3 years they have built up enough immunity to only get the rabies shot annually for 2 years. Then they have to have the full round again the following year, before being good again for 3 years. So the bill was $25 instead of $110, a very nice surprise!We just didn't have the heart to put Bon-Bon back in the box with 'the wailing one' going home. So as she rides well, we let her travel back in my lap. Although she gets a bit worried by everything whizzing by so fast if she looks out, so she likes to keep her head down LOL!We made it home with a clean bill of health all round and life has returned to normal. And here's our smallest cat Cal-Jo, who is always the chattiest, but hits another gear completely when put in a moving vehicle!What is it with some cats and cars whilst others are just fine, we just thank god we only have one drama queen!! Next year she might find herself in her box in the bed of the Pickup, so the rest of us can have a peaceful ride!
