Tiki Tiki’s Vet Visit

5 Nov
It was a normal day just like any other day, or so I’s thought.photo 1(1)
 
 When I’s was put in the basket then set down on the car seat, I’s didn’t think much of it. I’s thought what a nice day to take a drive with mommy.photo 2(1)
 
 It wasn’t until we parked in front of the building that I’s realized where we were! It was the Animal Hospital. SMDCH
 
 As we walked inside to the reception area I’s started to let everyone know exactly how I’s felt about being here.  woof woof woof woof! Anyone who would listen got an earful. Woof woof woof.REcp

 

 We’s was taken to one of the exam rooms were I’s  looked around while I’s waited patiently. I’s sure we’s just picking up medication refill, nothing to be concerned about. I’s sure everything will be fine.photo 4(1)
 
 The technician came in and weighed me.  Wow! I’s thought I’s getting chubby 2 whole lbs! But no Dr. said I’s need to gain more weight. I’s concerned dis will affect my future modeling careerphoto 1
 
  Then the unthinkable happened. I’s politely told him “Ehh Excuse me….Excuse me that doesn’t belong there”  I’s was so embarrassed.photo 3(1)
 
 As I’s was getting  over the shock, the Dr. walked in and started listening to my heart and breathing. Her hand were cold and the thingy she used was also cold. We’s told her about the small seizure I’s had about a week ago. And about my upset tummy with the runs.  Dr. said she doesn’t see a big improvement from last visit. Mommy begs to differ.photo 5(1)
 
The Dr. said I’s have a heart murmur and could hear a clicking noise when I’s breathed so  she wanted to take X-rays to make sure I’s didn’t have an enlarged heart. I’s look like this inside.  photo 2
 
We’s waited in the reception area for the x-ray results where I’s saw the office cat and I’s complained about what was done to me inside ….woof woof woof woof…. he didn’t care he’s heard it all before then turned around and left me talking. office cat
 
 
We’s were told that my heart looks fine my lungs look ok, but I’s missing a rib and a half but it shouldn’t be a problem. My poopy results will be back in 24hrs so we’s were sent home with tummy medication.photo 3
 
 
So that was my traumatizing vet visit …..did I forget anything mommy?photo 5

 

Oh yeah we’s went to the post office were I’s was asked to leave (they’s not very nice about it) “No dogs allowed” I’s not a dog! So we’s left! Blrrrrrr to them!  Then I’s made mommy swing by the ATM to take out some snack money . So we’s can get something to snack on for the drive home.photo 4

 

This has been a Tiki Tiki Post.                                                       ChiHugs and ChiKisses to all!
P.S:
Dr.’s office did call back the next day said poopy is 100% clean.  Tummy medication worked great I’s feeling much better.

Missy Missing Email Thread

14 Jul

I know how it feels to lose a pet, last year my little “Pepper”, Paprika’s sister, was stolen from the office. I searched everywhere and did everything humanly possible. Called all vets, clinics, animal shelters and pet stores to alert them about my loss and to have them post my flyers. I made large posters and walked the streets at night hanging them up, offered a reward, posted on craigslist, LA Times, Twitter…..etc….. you get the idea. After several months with no good or bad news I gave up. To this day all I can ask and hope for is that she was taken by someone who loves and cares for her.

So, you see, I do know it’s sad and heartbreaking to lose a pet but I must admit the following email exchange I just read is brilliantly funny. Shannon Walkley (the secretary) has lost her cat Missy and has asked David Thorne I believe to be the graphic designer to help make a lost pet poster. Make sure you read it from start to finish, seriously, just read this in its entirety, from the top.

Enjoy

Hi
I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was wondering if you are not to busy you could make a poster for me. It has to be A4 and I will photocopy it and put it around my suburb this afternoon.

Thanks Shan.

Dear Shannon,
That is shocking news.
Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.
Regards, David.

It’s a design thing. The cat is lost in the negative space.

Dear Shannon,
Having worked with designers for a few years now, I would have assumed you understood, despite our vague suggestions otherwise, we do not welcome constructive criticism. I don’t come downstairs and tell you how to send text messages, log onto Facebook and look out of the window. I have amended and attached the poster as per your instructions.
Regards, David.

yeah can you do the poster or not? I just want a photo and the word lost and the telephone number and when and where she was lost and her name. Not like a movie poster or anything stupid. I have to leave early today. If it was your cat I would help you. Thanks.

Dear Shannon,
I don’t have a cat. I once agreed to look after a friend’s cat for a week but after he dropped it off at my apartment and explained the concept of kitty litter. I have attached the amended version of your poster as per your detailed instructions.
Regards, David.

I know, but that one is cute. As Missy has quite possibly met any one of several violent ends, it is possible you might get a better cat out of this. If anybody calls and says “I haven’t seen your orange cat but I did find a black and white one with its hind legs run over by a car, do you want it?” you can politely decline and save yourself a costly veterinarian bill.
Regards, David.

In & Out Not Just A Burger

22 Jun

The office cat is out to get us! He is a very spoiled cat that demands attention and his needs and wants must be taken care of NOW!
Because he likes to jump onto counters and knock stuff off at night, I put him away in one of the office rooms.  But he didn’t like it at all and had learned to open the door from the inside.  So I started locking it.

The Cat thought this is NOT ACCEPTABLE AT ALL! He decided to let us know by peeing on the couch that’s in that office. I got the message loud and clear.
Last night I decided to leave him in the reception area so he can lay on the counters.  I closed all the other office doors, even the one he used to be put away in. This morning we found out what he thought about that idea…… He opened the door to his old room got inside and pee’d again!
