Tortie Tutu Thursday

Tutu is now 9.5 weeks old and I took her to the vet for her first vaccination on Wednesday. She had a lot to say about her first vet visit.

This is Dong Dong, the clinic cat who decided he wanted sleep in MY carrier
And I had to sit here instead
Then I came to sit here, minding my own business, calmly waiting for my turn when suddenly....
Eeeep! Get off me! GET OFF ME!
As you can see, I was NOT amused by Dong Dong's ungentlemanly behavior
She was very brave and took the jab very well. She was also given a paste dewormer
GO AWAY! I'm hurting everywhere and it's all your fault.  I hate you!
About 2 hours later, she was very angry, probably because the injection site started to hurt 
Come, let's go to sleep. You'll feel better later
DON'T TOUCH ME!
I put her back in her cage to sleep and she was much happier later that night
She is the first kitty I had who became so angry and aggressive after a vaccination jab so I was a little concerned. But she's back to her normal self today and playing again.

Yeah, well, we're never happy when being poked and prodded by a v-e-t, either. :-P

We're glad she's back to normal now, though. She must have an extra high level of tortitude. LOL.

She is so beautiful and precious and tiny. Poor little Tutu must endure the vaccination. Admiral, also a Tortie of course, was miserable after vaccinations. She wasn't angry just sick feeling and hid for several days. made me feel terrible. I will see how Katie is in August when she goes for hers again. Maybe Torties are more delicate. :-) Looking at Tutu makes me smile. I wish I could hold her. xoxoxoxox

Tutu is a feisty little one - we loved the picture (last but one) of her with the paws all ready to give you a good whapping!!
We hope she is feeling calmer today.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

SO SWEET! Love the pics. Thanks for sharing! BTW -- Mr. Ripley opens the cupboard doors and goes in by himself....silly guy....

~*Connie*~ said...

But you look so darn cute sitting there!! and even cuter sitting there by yourself.. and OMC you are so cute sleeping!!

I'm sorry Dong Dong took your carrier and pounced on you.. not to mention the needle jabby thing..

(you should probably mention her reaction to the vaccines to your vet.. always good to have that sort of thing on record)

Finn said...

Yikes! What a traumatic vet visit from being jumped on to be vaccinated! Hope she is feeling better now. And what a cutie she is too!

What a little cutie! I love how she's hugging the little kitty toy in the last picture!

unikorna said...

Poor little baby, I am so glad she is better now. She is one lucky kitten if she has found you :).

Prancer Pie said...

SQUEE SQUEE SQUEE!!! The dreaded jab is a necessary evil. So sorry you had to endure that. It gets better from here!

Nerissa said...

That last photo of Tutu made peep #1s heart melt. There it is... all goopy on the floor.

Sandra said...

She's so precious! And lovely when she's mad, too. She is just so so adorable... look at that face... of course she resents the needle... I would, too:)

Tutu, we think Dong Dong kinda likes you!

BeadedTail said...

Tutu, you are beyond adorable! Our mommy wants to scoop you up and snorgle you all over! We're glad you feel better today too!

Joy E. Saga said...

Tutu, don't worry, it's for your own good. I slept ALL day when i had my jab. It hurt but now I'm healthy :-)

Oui Oui said...

How sweet she is! The Girl always felt a little icky after her shots, so it probably was just that. We love little torties! We have a family tradition of having "Minnie" as part of every tortie's name.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Brave Tutu! King Spitty confers upon you the title of Chancillur ub teh Relm, Tortie Kitten Division. The position entitles you to all the noms you can eat, all the toys you can play with, all the hands you can injure wif ur tiny claws, and the right to go back in a few months and whap the cr@p out of that Dong-Dong.

Lucy the Cat said...

What a cute little gal! What did I miss? It sounds like you have a new kitty. She is so adorable. I can't wait to read more.

Tamago said...

Tutu had her first vet visit! She does look kind of mad ...sorry that might have been because of pain. But glad she was very happy later :-) She is so cute and precious!

animal lover, quilt lover said...

I feel really good that I am a friend b/c you do the best post of anyone. I love them so much!! Tutu is a doll baby!!!

K9friend said...

I think torties tend to be very opinionated kitties. Of course, getting jabbed and poked wouldn't help my disposition much, either!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Tutu!!! You have such a tiny, adorable face!!! Squeeeeee!!! I am just dying!!

You sure were brave when that big kitty jumped on you! That certainly WAS extremely ungentlemanly of him!!

Hope you are feeling better today!
xoxoxo

Kjelle Bus said...

Awww , I feel really sorry for you Tutu and me too would have been very upset !

ABBY said...

Awww we know she was just afraid and probably just had a tiny bit of discomfort. WE are so glad she is back to normal. What a sweetie.

she's probably hurting, must be because she's young.

i remember emma and buster took it all in stride. i'm so glad and relieved. they were even very well behaved, buster included.

Kittens are like babies, some cry some not, lol !

The Purr Diaries said...

This little girl is the sweetest, she just has so much personality! Hope the vet visit wasn't too traumatic for her, love the last pic :o)

Christine said...

OMC!! You are the cutest kitty!! We too have a kitty. His name is Elvis Purssley, but I think you are sweeter than our kitty!!! Oh my!!! Come meow on over at Brando and Bogart. We love new friends!!!

Rykers Boyz n Allie said...

FaradaY: POOR Tutu! You were very very brave and it's completely and totally understandable that you would be a teensy bit out of sorts - since those needles are ginormous! RILLY!

Oskar said...

Poor little Tutu. I had the vet jab today & they took some of my blood away from me. It's no fun for a big brave dog like me & Tutu is just a baby!

Nubbin wiggles,
Oskar

Father Tom said...

What a sweetie pie with those eyes, even if they were angry there for a time!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Darling Tutu, The Human keeps coming back here to stare at you. I think I'm actually getting a little jealous!

Katie and Glogirly said...

Tutu, those humans just don't get your Tortie attitude! You just show them who's boss. With your cuteness, they'll be putty in your paw.
; ) Katie

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Poor baby she said I did not like that!! I'll love you if you never do that again --- but when it is time again to go to the vets--- look out!!!!

Henry's human said...

Poor baby. Henry, Otto and Vivika do not like vet visits either. Sometimes humans just don't get it!

haopee said...

LOL. So hilarious. Poor Tutu. I know how it feels. My bigger dogs don't have issues with vaccinations but Peanuts had to endure little vaccine lumps for a couple of days which made her a little cranky.

I like your box, Tutu.

Huggies and Cheese,

Ugh not the V-E-T!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hi Tutu! Hope you are all recovered from that horbibble vet visit!! You look adorable sleeping wif ur little friend.

Clooney said...

What a little sweetheart she is! So relieved that she ended up feeling better quickly.
