Domino, as usual, isn't like most kitties.  She likes going to the V-E-T!  Today she went just for her annual check-up and to get some shots.  Actually, Domino also loves the car ride.  She perches on my shoulder and looks all around at the passing scenery.

Today, before we left, Domino said that she would like to wear one of her dresses to show the V-E-T how pretty she can be.  I was a little reluctant to let her because I thought it would just get in the way, but I finally relented when I realized how important it was to Domino.  She always likes to make a good impression.

So, here we are arriving at the Trim Pet Hospital.  Daddy has Domino on a leash, though she would rather just roam around and check things out on her own.  You can see Finnigan, the office cat, looking at her from atop the desk.  He certainly seems interested!  

Daddy puts Domino up on the desk, too.

Then the pretty receptionist came to greet us. She is smiling at Domino in her dress and reaches for a treat to give her.

Domino was more interested in exploring her new territory -- she's very nosy, you know!  Notice how happy she is, with her tail held high.

Something caught Domino's attention outside in the parking lot!  Could it be a woofie, perhaps?  We'll never know because at that moment, the V-E-T was ready to see her.

Here is the V-E-T (her name is Michelle) saying hello to Domino!  This is the first time they have met.

Domino just relaxes as Michelle checks her out.

Domino is totally unconcerned, even when Michelle prepares the needle for her shot.  We aren't showing the actual deed, as Domino thought it was a little too revealing.

After the dirty deed was done, Domino once again relaxes.  It was a snap really!  Nothing to worry about.
Michelle also listened to Domino's heart and looked at her teeth, and said everything was in great shape.

After that, Domino went back to the reception desk where Daddy paid the bill.  Notice where Finnigan has got to, now!  He really likes to keep an eye on his domain, and Domino, I think.

It was nice to visit, but Domino is ready to go home.  So she did!

Wow, Domino, we're impressed and amazed that you are so good at the vet's! We hate going and we certainly aren't relaxed!

Glad it was all just routine and that you are in good health!

That is so great that the v-e-t visit was such a success. Bet they were all very impressed with your dress. It sure looked good to us.
Have a great week end

I love coming home after the vet. It is the best part...


The only part of the Vet visit I tolerate is the getting in the car to go home. Mom said I could ride inside the car outside of the carrier if I wanted to, I don't go crazy in the car. But I prefer my carrier...and Domino you looked positively stunning in your dress.

I bet the vet was impressed with her beautiful outfit, I imagine they don't get too many kitties coming in who are so well dressed :-)

What a joy it must be to have Domino around, she is a special girl indeed!!!

Well, that was a pleasant and uneventful visit. You must be very proud of Domino for being so good and dressing up to look her best.

Domino, I don't know if you are brave, or crazy, or a little bit of both! I think vet clinics are scary places!

Domino, you picked the perfect outfit for your vet visit! And I am very impressed with how brave you are. I usually just curl up into a small ball and try to be invisible.
