Thirteen Reasons Why Gatsbi Doesn't Want to Have Surgery Next Week

1. She hates being stuck in the PTU and going for a ride in the metal monster.

2. She is going to have to board overnight at the V-E-T because it is impossible to take food away from 10 poodins overnight.

3. She doesn't really care if the cyst on her face is becoming a mass.

4. She doesn't want her whiskers shaved off.

5. She doesn't want to take medicines.

6. She doesn't want to be a conehead.

7. She's afraid of going to the V-E-T.

8. It might hurt.

9. She won't be able to sleep in front of the space heater the night that she boards .

10. It smells funny at the V-E-T.

11. She will smell funny when she comes home and the other poodins will hiss at her.

12. She already has enough problems getting around because of her neurological disability, and if she is a conehead, it will be even harder.

13. She wants Maw & Paw to spend their green paypers on something else.

Awh, geez! It won't be as bad as it sounds. You'll have lots of cute conehead pictures, and get pampered a little when you are recovering. Milk it for all its worth, Gatsbi!

Aw, poor little Gatsbi. That sounds really rough. I'm sure you'll pull through, though, and maybe you'll get some extra stinky goodness! (Momma says I should have more sympathy for your momma and dad because they're gonna lose lots of green papers).

Poor Gatsbi. :( I'm sorry to hear you have to go to the vet Gatsbi. But don't worry about having your whiskers shaved off. I hardly have any whiskers at all - I just have a few very short, tiny ones on each side of my face, and I get along just fine without them. I hope all goes well at the vet. I will be purring and praying for you.

Daisy said...

Poor Gatsbi! I am sorry you have to get some surgery. Try to be very, very brave and it will be over before you know it. I will be thinking of you.

Gemini said...

I think the last one is very unselfish of her. What a fine cat!


Tybalt said...

Poor Gatsbi! I'm so sorry you have to have surgery. I think being away from home the night before may be the worst part. Be brave! I am sure you will be extra spoiled when you get home.

Scout said...

Poor Gatsbi! I don’t like the vet either and I pray she gets better soon!


Captain Jack and Sir Dante said...

Awww, poor Gatsbi! Just tell her to try to think of all the pampering and attention she'll get when she comes home!!!


Awww Gatsbi honey we really wish you didn't have to go to the vet eiffur....we hope it will make you feel better real soon and Maw and Paw will pamper you completely.


Shaggy and Scout said...

Gatsbi Sweetie we are sorry your face needs cleaning up but it would hurt worse later on if it isn't taken care of.

Icon Baxter Bentley said...

Thanks for the nice comments!

Kitty has his hind legs up because my mamma was tickling him on the back of his legs. She would alternate rubbing one leg at a time until he was sitting in that position. Isn’t it funny!?!

He is very tolerant (and lazy in his old age), and had just woken up from a nap.

Poor Gatsbi, this is aweful spending the night at the V-E-T! Without whiskers and a cone on your head staying up will be so challenging! I send you purrs (to make up for the hissing you will get) and Im sure you will feel better in no time and it will all be a far memory.

I feel sorry for poor Gatsbi. Hope she recovers soon afterwards and is completely healthy. Sending her many purrayers from the SnowForest home :)

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Poor Gatsbi. It is really nice of her to want to save the green papers but it sounds like when all is over things will be better for Gatsbi. I hate cone-heads, I did that way too long.


Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

Oh Gatsbi,

I yam goin' to let da Aunie Stinkie talk to you:
Gastbi, this iz your Auntie Stinkie speaking. I had to go to the VET one year ago and have one ear shaved and my right side shaved and some growths removed. I was not a happy camper believe you me. BUT, I got through this with flying colors, although it was ost embarrassing to come home with a lack of fur. On the otehr hand, I got extra attnetion, extra treats, and toe massages from momee. It may be worth it Gatsbi, so don't fret too much. You will not remember anything but a funny smell, and then POOF! You wake up and go home to your beanz.

Oh, Gatsbi - everyone's saying "it won't be so bad"... I say "You're gonna be a cone-head with no whiskers! Eeek!" ~ Daphne

But we all will still love you, no matter what. Your Maw & Paw are just the most wonderful people in the whole great big state of Texas!

luv from your friends @

awww we doesn't want Gatsbi to haf to haf an oper-way-shun eifur. but if it makes her feel better, then it's the bestest thing to do.

and we won't say you look like a flood light wif your cone.

Zippy, Sadie, Speedy and M'Gee said...

Yoor furry lucky to have beans who love you so much and are willng to spend da green papers to make you better. That being said...aaaaaagh, not da vet tortchurs! Make dem spoil you real good when you get home.

Mr. Hendrix said...

Oh sweet Gatsbi. I'll be purring and purring and purring for you next week. I'm sure you'll be very well cared for and with the medicine, it won't hurt much. All your friends will be sending you positive thoughts and that always makes things better fast. Maybe your beans can take a cat bath wipe with them to wipe the VET smell off and a blankie that smells like you to put in the PTU when the bring you home so the other kitties won't freak out?

Parker said...

Awwwwww poor Gatsbi, we will think positive kitty thoughts for you. I hope you will be A OK when you come back.
Smooches sweet Gatsbi!
Love from O Hi O!

Sunny's Mommy said...

Poor Gatsbi. I hope she recovers quickly, and that the other cats aren't too mean to her when she coming home stinking of the vet. :-(
