Hi everybuddy!  It’s me…Ernie.  I thought I’d let you know that I did really good at the v-e-t yesterday when I went for my annual exam.

This is me in the PTU in the car.  I sang all the way there…really loud!  I think the mom’s ears are still ringing from all my beautiful singing!  Wally wouldn’t join in…spoil-sport.  He was still mad that he had to go along for the ride.


Once at the v-e-t’s, I looked for a way to escape.  But there wasn’t any.  The v-e-t lady checked me all over and said I was perfect!  Well, of course I am!  And I only got stabbed once!

I even lost a little weight and the v-e-t lady said I could lose a little more if I wanna. But, y’know what?  I don’t wanna! Those of you who remember the back issues that I had about a year or so ago will be happy to know that my back has been feeling good. The mom still keeps an eye on me, though, to make sure I’m careful so I don’t hurt myself again.


Wally wouldn’t even come out of the PTU when we were there.

When we got home, Wally hissed at me only a couple of times, so not bad.  I guess it was worth dragging him along.


Whew!  I’m glad that it’s all over now…and I can get my easy on.

    And it’s great Wally didn’t go mean with you 🙂 Great idea to go together.
    You must be very tired…have a nice long nap now!

  2. We is so glad you is well, Ernie! We hopes you won’t have to see the inside of that PTU for a while!!

    Carmine refuses to come out at the v-e-t, too. The Mom has to take apart his PTU to get him out…MOL.

  9. Whew, we’re glad it was just the annual check and that everything’s fine.

    We, too, sing our warrior songs and for some reason our human always feels the need to apologize profusely to the taxi drivers.

  10. I am SO SO glad all went well, Ernie and that Wally hadda come along. If he would stop being a pill when you go by yourself, he wouldn’t get into this predicament. XXXOOO

  11. I’m so glad you had such a good report from the vet, Ernie. Wow, you lost some weight too (something a certain orange girl could stand to do). Yes, I remember your back troubles and was actually wondering how that was doing. Glad to hear your back is all fine too!

    Wally, it sounds like you were a good boy.

  12. Well Ernie of course WE all knew you were perfect but now even the Vet thinks you are! Oh and Wally of course….I bet when he realized he wasn’t gonna get stabbed too he was glad…..and by taking him, both of you got the hospital smell together! YAY!

    Hugs, Sammy

  13. Phew, it’s over with! So glad it all went well and it’s all done so you can just relax after that visit.

  14. Poor Wally, I feel bad that he has to go with you! Poor guy! Glad all went well though!

  15. Glad to hear you checked out perfectly. I think they pay all the vets to say you could lose some weight…

  16. What a good mancat you were, Ernie. Oh, and Wally too!

  21. Yea! A good vet visit means you won’t have to go back for a while.
    Great news.

  22. Yay for a good report!
    Pssst Wally…if you don’t hiss at Ernie when he comes home from the vet, maybe you won’t need to go along the next time!

  23. We are glad you received a clean bill of health Ernie! And that bed you are on is really neat! 🙂

    the critters in the cottage xo

  24. Well, that is a relief that your checkup went well! Leave it to a human to make a snide weight comment, though.

  25. Thank COD ! Me too, when I got in the car.. I sang out loud.
    Not our favorite ever !
    But mom said it’s good for us.

    Have a good rest my friend ; )

  26. Well Done, Ernie! That’s how all vet visits should be (minus Wally hissing…).

    The Chans

  40. Concats on the good checkup and the great singing in the car! Hope you got lots of relaxing time to make up for all that you missed yesterday.

  41. Allie: SERIOUSLY, this whole weight issue is WAY overblown, *I* say.

    Faraday: That’s cuz YOU is on a D-I-E-T and you don’t LIKE it, Allie.

    Allie: Pay no attention to that annoying sound you just heard….
    Wally did you get a stick too or were you just there for moral support?

  42. We’re glad everything went well at your V-E-T visit. During Ashton’s visit (probably at the same time but in a different city) she found out she had lost weight, too. Sounds like a group diet!

  43. I’m glad your trip to the v-e-t went well. One poke isn’t bad, especially if your v-e-t is good at it. Glad to hear your back is better. Mine hurt last year but it is ok now too.

  44. Well, of COURSE you were perfect Ernie! Did anyone ever doubt it???

    Poor Wally, though. Do you get dragged along when HE has to go???

  45. Mes would LOVES to hears your Road Warrior Song! And me is happy that yous is doing so furry well!

  46. We are glad you got a good report!

  47. Good job on the singing. We all love to serenade our mom on the way to the vet. It appears as if Wally has a way cooler PTU than you do. What’s that about? We do like the blanket you have for your snooze. Glad you are healthy and only had to get one shot. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  48. You did great Ernie! That’s good, cause ya really don’t wanna go back anytime soon…no matter how great the vet is.

    We’re impressed that Wally ‘volunteered’ to accompany you!


  49. You have had a very stressful time. Enjoy your rest. You must need it. Glad the v-e-t lady said you were perfect……….you are.

  50. Oh Ernie, we are so happy to hear that everything is good with you and all went well and it is awesome that your back is all better. That’s fantastic news!

  51. Thank Cod that horrible annual visit is over and that you were “perfect”, of course you are perfect…..

  52. Glad the v-e-t’s visit went ok. What a good brother you have, going along to keep you company. Have a good day.

  53. We are glad that everything went well at the Vet. We love that you serenaded your Mom. It is her reward for taking you there. MOL Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)
