Feral Friday: Drugged & Dragged to the Vet

Hola kitties! What a fun day I had yesterday! I can hardly speak of the indignities endured by your stunning feral furrend—ME. I can hardly speak at all as a matter of fact. I was handled roughly and unfairly. I was drugged and dragged to the vet even though I've been fine. Even my asthma has been behaving itself.

I think all the hissing, growling and spitting has left me with a bit of a sore throat. Apparently the gabapentin didn't do it's job. Tough luck.

I was poked and prodded till I could take it no more. Sorry Dr. D. for the unflattering pic of you but all's fair in love and war. Today was war.

I refused to give my blood even though Dr. D. tried but I will joyfully take her's. My veins ran cold and dry as I instructed them to.

What a fight I kicked up as she trimmed my beautiful sharp claws. I thrashed, growled, hissed and turned completely feral. Try as they might, neither Dr. D. and her tech T. were a match for this ferocious feline. I kicked and fought as hard as I could but the burrito and welding gloves kept me from maiming them. If could have only gotten free for a moment. My claws were once again nubs. Kittehs, I was violated even though I didn't endure the anal probe.

Have you ever seen such a scared but defiant feral cat? I was stunned and stunning. BTW, Pop took all these incredible shots with his iBone but you can see his finger on the right-hand side. Oopsie! One would think after how I protested that Dr. D. would ban me from the clinic but can you believe after all that, Dr. D. wants me back in the Spring to steal my bloods? All I can say is no way, no how. They ain't taking me alive.

Now it's time to join the Friendly Fill-Ins, a feature held weekly at this time, which is already in progress. Our hosts—15andmeowing and Four Legged Furballs need no innerductions as they are giants in the cat blogging world. They think up the fill-ins and I fill in the answers. My answers are underlined and in italics. No further comments this week. Each week my image relates to one of the fill-ins. Today it relates to numbers one and two.

1. Whenever I get dragged to the vet, I lose my trust in humans.

2. Drugging the cat is not funny.

3. Good things come to those who BITE.

4. Hunger makes me grumpy.

There's a puzzle of the original art before the oil paint filter was added.

They say art imitates life so I did a still life oil painting showing my captivity for my Feral Friday entries in the Caturday Art blog hop which is hosted by the lovely Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty and her mum to showcase the latest art by anipal artists using digital apps, Photoshop or original art. No talent? No problemo. There are hundreds of one-click apps for desktop or mobile devices that will turn your photos into works of art.

Hope you guys have a good weekend. Don't forget to hover over the images to find out what I'm really thinking.

Well, that sounds like it was pretty... um... traumatic! For all involved.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

The only thing I hate more than taking Bear to the vet is dental work. He's too terrified to fight - he just plays dead - but I hate the whole deception and trick thing. Your face in the kitty burrito shot says it all, CK!

Peaches and Paprika said...

O Mi Cod this is to bloodcurdlling. Drugged and dragged. O mi Cod, u poor thing. This happened to us recently. Our human was almost wishing we'd fight because instead we went into "zombie" mode.

We love the picture of you and also your vet examining you, or trying to, and think it's a really cool idea on your part to "take their blood." Go furrr it! Those vets are always wanting to "do things" to u s and its time we had an uprising....

Sandee said...

Going to the vet isn't fun, but necessary. I love your fill-ins and I can see how you feel the way you do. Your mom loves you and that's why you go to the vet.

Have a purrfect day and weekend. My best to your mom. ♥

"I was stunned and stunning."
Way to go, CK!

Fr. Tom Fishworthy said...

Wow - quite an ordeal for you, CK! The most hysterical pic of all is the one of the heavily-gloved hands trying to make you submit. You're a tough cookie and I'm proud of you! (When I was neutered, they let me keep my cojones, but I think you outnumber me, hahahahahaha!!!) - Tom x

ps - thanks for the puzzle!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Oh CK! You poor darling girl! Well, at least you kept your bloods. This time.. Good luck next time!

jank1961 said...

Those are some brave humans!! Maybe you should call the humane society?? :)

Three Chatty Cats said...

Wow, seems like you put up quite the fight, CK! One time, Olive had to have one of those face covers put on her to calm her down.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

You looks so angry but put up a courageous fight. You let them know who they were messing with!
The art is great, and I will do the puzzle later.

Catscue Cat Mom said...

Oh my! What a dramatic event, thank goodness everyone survived it! I'd hate to see what happens when there is more than claw trimming required, sheesh!

The Island Cats said...

You are a tough one, CK. We thought Zoey was bad...but that 100mg of gabapentin does wonders with her. She still tries to put up a fight, but it’s a weak one....

Sweet Purrfections said...

You are a tough one, but we admire your vet for wanting to continue to see you. We hope everything turned out well with your examination.

Brian said...

I'm glad all went okay at the Vet CK...NOT! You really did put up one heck of a stunning fight!

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

Poor baby - you look absolutely petrified. Hope your peeps survived the night MOL

pilch92 said...

You poor abused kitty, that sounds awful and I don't blame you for planning revenge. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I love your art. Thank you for the puzzle, I will work on it now. XO

All that grabbing were just hands of love.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I worship at your clippy-clawed feet, my Stunning Beauty! Alas, I too was manhandled and poked and prodded and my bloods WERE stolen. It was an outrage! AND I got clippy-clawed too! My mighty swords are but tiny, blunt nubs that are useless not only for whacking the Human, but also for climbing and sharpening. I weep as I try to use my scratchers and hear only little scrabbly wispy sounds in place of the satisfying thwacks and crunches my lovely claws once made. ::sniffle:: They.Have.To.Pay. Meet me on the blue pillow and we can plot.

Little Binky and Granny said...

OMC CK, that sounds... and looks just horrible, but we hope you'll be fine in the end. Sorry we had to MOL a little bit of what you said in the pictures, you're still a Stunning kitty...oh, and the artwork too😸Here's a biteful Pawkiss just for you and for a Happy Weekend too🐾😽💞

R's Rue said...

Cute.

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Poor you!

No wonder you turned feral.

Cat Chat With Caren and Cody (Caren Gittleman) said...

Kudos to you CK! You do us kitties proud! You make the Vet EARN their money! Not like me, I pretty much let them do whatever they want......(fool that I am!) I don't even sing in the car! I don't love it there but they give me my pawdicure with ease and I don't have to be wrapped like a burrito (you poor baby!!!!!! But...you were a feral cat and I wasn't). Your face looks so sweet that who would think you were so power packed???? Sending lots of love CK!! Your pal furever, Cody

meowmeowmans said...

Way to fight the power, CK! We're sorry you had to go to the vet. :(

The Swiss Cats said...

OMC, that sounds horrible ! How traumatic ! We're so proud of you, you fought like a lion ! Purrs

The Menagerie Mom said...

The horror you endured, CK! Bravo for not letting those barbarians steal your blood. Do they really think they'll succeed at stealing what's rightfully yours this spring? Eddy also gets a bit feral in cases like this, but in her case this occurs mostly at home when I need to get her in a PTU. She typically freezes at the vet itself. The feral part that occurs at home, though, is why this human is incredibly guilty of letting Eddy go far too past her annual exam due date. Eddy certainly isn't complaining, but this here human feels ashamed and needs to get Eddy to the vet. Eddy will gladly share her war stories with you when that time comes, CK. Eddy will try to make sure blood is shed, and that said blood belongs to this mom of hers. We hope your humans try to win your trust back in the form of Chinese food, CK!
