Today Pan and Java went to get their shots. Petco does a vaccination thing every other Saturday morning and [livejournal.com profile] bryghtrose was nice enough to pick up me and the furballs and transport us there and back.

They were a hit! First the girl checking the paperwork commented on their very long names (I put their *full* names on the paperwork) and then the vet commented on how well behaved they were.

Now, I know my cats are spectacular and very lovely, and it's not just because I am biased as their human. In line they sat quietly in their carriers despite the fact that there were dogs both in front of and behind us and they kept coming up to inspect the cats in their carriers. Everyone got along quite well.

When they checked the paperwork they asked if the cats might try to attack the vet when he pulled them out of the carrier. A firm no to that one. Then we actually got them up to do their shots they were both very calm and compliant and didn't even squirm while getting the shots or make any noise. The first cat in line was yowling like crazy! Both the vet and the other dude (tech perhaps?) commented on how well behaved and quiet they were.

I was actually kind of shocked. I knew they wouldn't bite or try to attack anyone, but even I didn't expect them to quietly and calmly submit to the shots and then willingly get back in the carriers! But anyway, I now have successfully vaccinated kitties that are sitting on the bed like usual and not even avoiding me. :)

Even Cathy, a not very pet person, said they were the best behaved pets there. I don't think that was too much of a stretch either.
