A Shot for Portia

I took Portia to the clinic today for her annual vaccinations.  I’ve only had her for a year so this was the first time that we had to do it.   I thought the most difficult part would be getting her into the carrier.  Ironically, all I had to do was spray her little blanket with some catnip and throw it in the carrier and she walked right in.  If I knew it would be that easy I wouldn’t have put on jeans and long sleeves to prevent the imminent fight and scratches.  What did surprise me was how emotional I was once we got to the clinic.  She cried all the way there and I felt horrible.  Then the vet was all gentle and kind and I stood there and cried while she was getting her shots.  I love my cat.
