So last friday afternoon my kids and I were playing outside with the cat. She's mainly an indoor cat and has her front paws declawed, so we let her play outside only when we are out there with her. I noticed little bloody paw prints on the deck and came to find out, one of the pads on her front paw was bleeding pretty bad. My cat is my 3rd kid. So I freaked out, called the vet, who said if I could bring her in right away because they were closing in 1/2 hour they would look at it. We live just blocks away from the vet so after finally cramming her into her pet carrier, which I know now she has totally outgrown, the kids and I rushed her to the vet. The cat was seriously freaking out, like most cats would be I'm sure. When we got to the vet I had a hard time holding her in the exam room. She was going crazy trying to get away. Finally the Vet comes in and says, "ohhh the kitty's paw is hurt and it seems to have diarrhea." I look down and notice dripping down my front is poo. The cat had clawed through my skirt and had tore my bag with her back paws while I was trying to hold on to her. My bag was nearly full, I didn't empty it before we left, b/c we were in such a hurry. Arrg. So I sat there with a towel sopping up poo, while the vet fixed the cat. After we crammed our kitty back into the way too small carrier I was going to start wiping up the mess on the floor, when a little girl holding on to her dog's leash let go and it came running into our exam room, stepping in my poo, getting it all over it's leash and tracking it all over the place. Needless to say I was sooo happy to finally get out of there. I may need to find a new vet.
