Not Happy, Not at All
Still, I decided it wouldn't hurt to have the vet take a look. So without much warning I loaded Diego-san into his carrier and Thompson too. It was really cold outside so I got to hear some cries of displeasure as we walked out to the car. Once in the car Thompson howled away, a combination growl and wail. Diego-san quietly meowed.
Thompson continued voicing his displeasure as we entered the building all the way through when they took him in back to withdraw blood. I could hear him howl even as Diego-san and I were directed to an examination room. I pointed out the recent scratch on Diego-san's back and the vet took his temperature saying it was a little warm but not that much out of the ordinary. She told me to keep an eye on him and bring him back in the morning if I was still concerned. He seems fine now.
She told me Thompson has small veins so they had some trouble withdrawing blood. Poor guy. He was pretty quiet on the drive back home...
