I wanna be sedated

So yesterday I took my poor cat Timido in to the vet for his teeth cleaning. I'm glad I got it done and out of the way, but I am wondering why I didn't bring him in before classes started. Silly me, not doing all the crap on my to-do list before starting teaching again!

I had no clue that they would need to have him there when they opened at 7 am, for the process of putting him under sedation and then having enough time for him to wake up and recover for when they closed at the end of the day.

That meant that I had to get up super duper early and drop him off --- and of course since I was worrying right and left about them putting him under, I slept terribly and was anxious all day. Needless to say, I am sooo tired now. But my kitty seems to be doing fine! They said his teeth were healthy and we don't have to pull anything. He was a little groggy when I brought him back home, and wobbled about as he went and sniffed everything, but he is acting normal now.

I wish they could have sedated me instead of me having to sit around between teaching classes, worrying my ass off:

Excuse me, I have to go sing "Sheena is a punk rocker" now.

Cats are so funny when they are recovering from sedation! But I'm glad Timido is ok, though I just do the dental treats, rather than teeth cleaning!

It's like Jack Sprat over here --- one cat will only eat wet food, the other only dry. We thought that the wet-food-cat (Timido) was going to need teeth pullings. So I'm glad we escaped that.
