Not a happy vet visit.

So Monster went to the vet today to get some dental work done. Mostly just a cleaning, we thought, but it turned out the roots of two of his teeth were disinergrating so the teeth needed to be removed. Poor kitty. :( He's a little moody with me (and therefore there is liquid amoxocillan all over my bed) but will be fine. Can't have dry food for nearly a week.

However, I was getting him to play with me, and he moved such as if he were going to playfully claw at my hand (while he was on his back) and I moved my hand away instinctually and then realized I hadn't been scratched with a claw. Then I realized I couldn't see his claws. I almost started freaking out that they had accidentially de-clawed my kitty! It looks like they just trimmed the claws, however they trimmed them way farther back than I am comforatable with. I am use to this cat having full-on claws. He's use to having full-on claws, and he doesn't scratch up my stuff, so I'm totally fine with his claws not being trimmed (and I am against de-clawing) So I am going to call the vet tomorrow and ask them why they trimmed his claws THAT far back (and confirm that is all they did) and tell them I'd really like to be ASKED before they ever do it again. If it was 'cause he was scratching at the catheter bandaid too much, ok, fine, but fucking tell me first! Gah!
