A few days back, I brought Freckles for her first vaccination at My Vets clinic. This was her second visit to the vet within a month; her first visit was the day we got her, where she was dewormed.
She was too small at that time and wasn’t fit to be vaccinated. Since then, Freckles has gained close to 500g – weighing in at 1.2kg now. She’s growing too fast for my liking. I want my little cantik to stay tiny longer. 😦 😦 😦
From the moment I put her into her pet taxi, Freckles the smartie pants seemed to know what was coming. She CRIED and SHIVERED and WHINED non-stop in the car on the way to the vet. Think about being stuck with a whiny kitten in bad Jakarta macet traffic – not very fun at all.
The vets at My Vets clinic speak good English which was helpful for me (can’t count on my substandard Bahasa Indonesian). Dr. Osye, the first vet Freckles saw was not around, so we ended up seeing another vet. Both were equally reassuring and I felt comfortable with them.
I asked the vet to help me trim Freckles’ nails and she happily obliged without charging me extra. Freckles was not happy at having her nails trimmed and screamed at the top of her lungs (I’ve never heard her scream so loud before). Such a small feisty kitty!
She wriggled with all her might and the vet had no choice but to call in another person to help pin Freckles down for her vaccination.
1 vet + 2 big men holding down a tiny 11-weeks-old kitten was quite a funny sight.
Her next vaccination will be in one month’s time. Crossing my fingers she’ll be better adjusted then.
In case you were wondering, the total bill came up to IDR 225K (inclusive of consultation, cutting of nails, and vaccination). Very reasonable indeed! 🙂

PS: My Vets at Kemang has two separate clinics side by side each other – one for canines and one for felines.
I’m currently back in Singapore and have been busy running around trying to settle the renovation for the new apartment, catching up with friends, running errands, etc.
IT IS SO GOOD TO BE BACK! (though I’m missing Agent D a tiny weeny bit)
Will update on my days in sunny (actually rainy these days) Singapore soon! ❤
