Well, as most of you know, Josie started coughing again this weekend, which means she is very close to starting to have severe asthma attacks again. I planned to take her to the vet today for her shot . . .

I loaded her up in the car, drove her to the vet . . . she moaned the whole way . . .

THEY'RE CLOSED TODAY!!!

For President's Day . . . :rolleyes:

So I drove her back home, both of us moaning by then . . . gave her some turkey with another Pred . . . hope that holds her over!

I'm so mad right now! :mad: :mad: :mad:

I wish she would just get better too . . . but I know the cycle. Within the next two days, she will start to have severe attacks. Which means that first thing in the morning, we have to make the trip again.

I figure I won't even be able to get her in the carrier! She knew what it meant when I got it out today, had to chase her down & force her in . . . tomorrow she'll definitely know what it means!

Awww, so sweet! Tell Eliot that Josie is probably going to sleep all day. Those Preds make her so sleepy! :(

She'll be as good as new tomorrow, after I can get her back to the vet.

Teirza and I avoid car trips together at ALL costs. I don't care for her attempts to let the world now I'm trying to murder her and she doesn't appreciate the motion. Poor baby.

I would hate to have loaded her up and packed her in and gotten to the vet with a pobre gatito to find out their closed! Here's a grrrrrr for that.

I used to have the same problem. I solved it! How? I started leaving the carrier out in the living room with all their toys nearby, etc. After just a day or two they became curious why that funny-looking box was still there and they started getting in the habit of going in there for a nap. Now I have NO problem getting them in there to go to the vet. (My carrier is the kind that you can take the cage front off so I do that in between vet visits. I also have their favorite blanket in there to keep it "cuddly" so they no longer see this carrier as a threat.)
