Today our sweet little Ali (our 4 year old cat), went to the vet to get a yearly vaccination shot.
(That picture was from just a few months ago... I can't believe how much longer Baby Girl's hair is already and how much older she looks! Oh well, I didn't have a really good picture of Ali that is more recent.... guess I have something to add to my to-do list!)
Last year when she went to get shots, I was pregnant and hubby was with me. This time hubby couldn't get off work so I was pushing Baby Girl in the stroller with one hand, carrying Ali in the carrier with the other, and a diaper bag slung over one shoulder. I was definitely a sight! haha
Now let me start off this story with a little background story. Ali and Baby Girl are best of friends. Like, seriously. Ali curls up by our feet almost every night, but while I was pregnant she curled up next to my growing belly each and every night and just purred. Sure, it was probably just because of the extra warmth, but I like to think it's because she already loved the new addition to our family I was growing inside. Now that Baby Girl is a little older and crawling around, chasing Ali, Ali will run away, but not too far to where Baby Girl can't get to her again! :)
Anyway, all that was to say that when we went back to the examination area at the vet, Baby Girl was fine and was smiling at the two veterinarians and just having a blast. Once they started messing with Ali, oh she was not happy! She would yell at the doctors any time they would poke at the cat (checking her ears, giving the shot, whatever). Once they stopped she was all smiles again. She was so protective and it was just the sweetest thing. No one messes with her kitty cat!!
