A Trip to da Vet in My New PTU


Hey pals. Well, as ya can see by da above picture, my swollen lip wuz still lookin da same swollen dis morning.  I has not been razzin like Crockett, I leaves da tongue ackshun up to him - even if all he had to offer today wuz a baby razz.


We still don't know what caused my lip to swell up - it coulda been a weekend squabble wif Angelique, but we are not shure.


Anyways, it wuz not improvin, so off to da vet I went.


Earlier dis month, I won a giveaway hosted by Truffle and Brulee of Sweet Purrfections for a Petmate Jackson Galaxy expandable carrier. Momma didn't think we'd have da oppurrtunity to give it a test run until next month (I are due for a tooth cleaning), but she pulled it out today. 


I really liked da carrier - I ackshually did NOT sing da Song of My People in da car like usual.


Dis soft carrier shure beat da old hard-side PTU. And since I was sitting on momma's lap, I could feel her which helped me keep calm. I even licked her through da mesh.


And I wuz able to snuggle down.


I got to see all my friends at da vet (I are Wendy da Vet Tech's FAVORITE cat - she are not really a "cat person" but says I are so chill, she would like to have a cat like me). I's super calm at da vet and never bite and scratch, so I are an easy patient. I got a shot wif some Aunty Inflammatories and some udder stuffs - it wuz not an abscess, so I didn't hafta get it lanced or nuffin. It are kinda of a wait and see thing to make shure it just a lil swollen lip and not a tumor or something else. If I still has it next Tuesday, I are gonna hafta to go back.    


While I wuz waiting, momma popped down da sides so I could explore da new PTU - I like dat it wuz expandable - more room are always good. I could even have Crockett in here for a Mancat Pawty!


As ya can tell, plenty of room to explore. I are definitely a fan of dis new PTU - nuffin like traveling in style, even if it are just to da vet. So check out da Petmate Jackson Galaxy expandable carrier - you'll be glad ya did. 


I bet ya thought wif all dis adventures of a new PTU and a vet visit dat I forgot bout it being Thoroughly Poetical Thursday.  NOPE!  Here's da pic and here's da poem . . .  


Ballerinas really luv to dance
They spin, leap, and jump given the chance
Beautiful, they are often desired
Hardworking, they are to be admired
Strong, graceful, athletic, and all that
They's got lots in common wif a cat! 

Disclaimer: We won the Petmate Jackson Galaxy expandable cat carrier in a giveaway. We were not asked or required to review the product, but decided to since I enjoyed it so much. No compensayshuns wuz involved.

Sorry you had to go to the vet, but at least you travelled in style in your new carrier. I hope your lip goes down with the meds and I am sending good thoughts that you don't have to go back again.

Summer said...

That's awesome that you like the new carrier, Travis... even if it took a visit to the vet to find that out.

Pamela June Kimmell said...

Travis I'm glad you got to use the new PTU - it's totally pawsome. I'm also hoping that your lip gets better and you don't have to do more stuff at the vet to fix it - purrrhaps your meds will do the trick. Somehow even though you had all that excitement, you pulled off a PERFECT POEM for Poetical Thursday. My Mom and I love it and I'm sure Angel Sammy will too - you're right - we cats are every bit as GRACEFUL as a ballerina! We're "catarinas" !

Love, Teddy

Mauricio had a swollen lip like that twice. We never found out what caused it. Hope you get better super fast. That poem is fabulous. Great new PTU. We won a soft-sided PTU like that from SleepyPod. We haven't had a chance to use it yet. POTP and prayers for healing quickly.

Oh, sweetie, we're so sorry about your lip, even if our Mom wants to kiss it. Did you eat a bug that bit you, maybe? We love that carrier! And what a fun poem!

Oh, I hope your lip is better soon. That new PTU looks interesting. It's great that you felt more comfortable in it and didn't feel so stressed going to the vet.

The Island Cats said...

We're sorry you had to go to the vet, Travis, but at least you traveled in style! Ernie has had a puffy lip. His is due to allergies. Maybe yours is too?
