I appreciate that you're not a good traveller, and I did expect the 40 minutes of caterwauling* on the way to the vet on Saturday. I very much appreciate that you didn't do it so much on the way home. And I'm incredibly grateful that you only peed in your box instead of your usual messy, smelly trick.
Please understand though - you're 13, which makes you a bit of an 'old man' in the cat world, so getting your vision, blood pressure, blood and wee tests done are perfectly acceptable - don't want you getting sick like Milly did, now do we? Thank you for being relatively patient and cooperative for most of the visit.
The shaved spots will grow back, I promise! And believe it or not, I think you actually shed more hair during that visit than got shaved off.

PS please come home for dinner!
* Isn't caterwauling the most perfectly appropriate word?
