Recovering from a Visit to the V-E-T - Trixie's Caturday Art and Sunday Selfie

Hallo, Effurrybody!

Shavua Tov (a Good Week) to all Our Anipals!

It is My Turn to star in this week's Caturday Art and Sunday Selfies blog hops, hosted by (respectively) the Wise and Beauteous Athena and her HuMum, Marie, and the Sweet, yet Unpredictable Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.

But before I do so, I have to tell you, kitties, how Mummy tricked Me last week and whisked Me off to the V-E-T, before I realised her Fell Intent! She tempted Me with treats to get Me into the Guest Room! And then She shut the door, so I couldn't escape. I can't believe I fell for that again! I took refuge in My Kitty Cave, but She dragged Me out and popped Me into the PTU before you could say Pussy Galore - but not before I managed to leave My Signature on the back of her Treacherous Hand!  She won't try that again in a hurry!

Anyway, her excuse for this Ill Treatment was that I was overdue with my annual shots (true, but that's Her fault, not Mine) and that I had stinky breath and She feared I might have a gum infection (No Comment)!

When We got to the Place of Torture, there were a couple of people before Us. One of them was already inside, with their Woofie, and another, in the Waiting Room, had a Parrot. I have never seen a Birdie at That Place before.

Anyway, because of the Evil Coronavirus, We waited outside in the garden until it was Our turn. Naturally, I refused to cooperate when Dr. Einat tried to examine my toothies. Instead, I hissed and snarled at her - but She just smiled and invited Me to do that again. Too late, I realised that I had given her a Grandstand View of my Fangs and Gums! Tricked again!!!

Well, the Evil Vet said I did have a bit of a gum infection, but not a serious one, and She gave Mummy a tube of DentiSept to be applied three times a week. Yeah, sure! Good Luck with that, Mummy. Not happening. NOT. NO, NO, NO.
(I know Mummy is going to do what She always does - sneak up on Me when I'm asleep and apply the stuff before I have time to resist.)

After that, I got stabbed, as usual - and then We came Home and Mummy gave me Treats in a (vain) attempt to atone for her previous Ill Treatment of Me.

Well, that is My News for now.  Oh, I almost forgot! Yesterday, Shabbat morning, We were rudely awoken before 8 a.m. by the sound of Very Loud Boomies from the neighbouring Arab villages. We are used to them letting off fireworks to celebrate weddings and things, but who lets off fireworks at 8 in the morning? What is the point of fireworks if you can't see the pretty colours?

Well, Mummy phoned the Pawlice and they said that the villagers were celebrating the end of the school year and the matriculation exams. Yeah, at 8 in the morning! The Pawlice said they were "dealing with it" - but it went on all day, on and off.  Honestly! Some People!!!

We invited Mummy to join Us in the wardrobe, or UTB - but She declined.

And now, Anipals, it is time to join the blog hops.

This is the picture I have chosen for my entry in the Sunday Selfies blog hop. You can see me chilling out in one of my favourite spots, on the floor beside the fan in the bedroom.

We artified it with two new filters We found at PhotoFunia.  They are furry similar, but you must tell Us which you prefurr.  

Furrst of all, here is the picture seen through the Cloud Filter.  It looks as if I am flying through the clouds on My Magical Flying Carpet, doesn't it?

And here is the same picture, using the Artistic Filter:

Is it Our Imagination, or do I look as if I am on fire in the second photo?

As I said, one (or both) of these pictures will represent Us in the Caturday Art blog hop.

Now, here are the badges for both blog hops: 


And that's all for now, Anipals. Arrifurrderci - and don't forget to look after your Humans and keep them safe from the Evil Coronavirus.

That's a terrific selfie and wonderful art too. I'm sorry you had to have a Vet ordeal but at least it's over now.

Trixie, we are sorry you had to go to the V-E-T, but it sounds like things checked out pretty well, and we are glad you are okay.

We love your selfie and artwork. As for the boomies at 8 a.m.? Wow, that is definitely too early for that nonsense!

I am sorry you had to go to rhe vet. I hope your gum infection gets better soon. Sorry about the boomies. Nice selfies and art. You do look on fire in the 2nd one. Shavua Tov!

Catscue Catmom said...

Your selfie is beautiful today Trixie, it looks like you recovered from the vet visit quite nicely.

Erin the Cat Princess said...

definitely the first filter for your artistic selfies. As to neighbours, well there we are flexible and tolerant, just so long as they dont try to pinch my mice or cream ;) MOL
Stay safe and hopefully all the time at the vet will prove beneficial!

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Sorry you got tricked to go to the vet. Humans!

Great art :)

I think there is a law somewhere about not being allowed to pull a cat out of her cat cave! Glad nothing serious came out of your veterinarian visit. We are not always so lucky!

Dash Kitten Crew said...

Those filters look amazing. Clouds? Wow!!!!

The Island Cats said...

Trixie, we're sorry you had to go to the vet. Our mom tricks us like that too to get us to go. We hope your teeth feel better. Nice selfie!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Both art versions are lovely, but the clouds just win for me.
I am sorry you had to go to the vet but glad all is okay apart from having yucky stuff put on your gums.

catladymac said...

Believe it or not, you are lucky to have a garden to wait in for your turn at the vet's. We still have to stay in the car. But at least there are noi woofies with us. Purrs.

Mickey's Musings said...

Trixie, mums are often very sneaky when it comes to getting us to go to the Vet :/ Ours is the same!!!
Fireworks in the morning? Sheesh!!! At least you survived.
As for your arty pics, we like the cloud one as it shows more of you!
Purrs,Georgia and Julie

Meezer's Mews & Terrieristical Woofs said...

Sorry you had to endure the vet place...but yeah when our peeps love us they do tame us there, betimes. Hope that medicine helps your gums to freshen up and help you not need a 'dental'.

Stay safe!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

We all get trapped in a room when it is V-E-T time. Never noticing the PTU there until it is TOO LATE!

The Indulged Furries said...

I hope your mouth is feeling better soon, and that your Mom doesn't get too many more injuries while giving you your medicine.
8 am boomies are just rude. Oh well, hopefully it was just that one morning.
