This Can't Be The Real Meaning Of Boxing Day!

Everyone celebrates Boxing Day differently, but we bet few people do what we did.  This morning we boxed Guido up - and took him to the vet.
HELP!  This can't be what Boxing Day is about!!!

Guido was examined and then given his 5-in-1 vaccination.  He enjoyed the ear rubbing (looking for mites) and the tummy rubs (checking organ functions) and he didn't even feel the injection thanks to Dr Vijay's stealthy practice of rubbing ears at the front while sticking a needle in the bum, but all the same, Guido was glad to get out of there.

Get off me!
 Target gave Guido a hero's welcome.
"Oh my Cod!  Are you ok?" Target asks.
We are having roast pork for lunch, and Guido will have his own share.  Happy Boxing Day!

The Chair Speaks said...

What a day for Guido! Oh well, if it's a scheduled appointment. Glad you got a scrumptious lunch.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

No I disbelieve that that is the meaning of boxing day! Boxing day is for PLAYING in boxes!

Whisppy said...

By golly! Your Mom took you to the vet on Boxing Day!? She better give you as many helpings of roast pork you need to recover from this.

I think Guido should have practiced some bare-pawed boxing after his ordeal!

Barbara said...

Ahhh, what a shameful thing to happen to a cat on Boxing Day! Poor Guido, still he looked as if he'd been very brave!

Old Kitty said...

you were violated

=^..^= said...

That's NOT what Boxing Day is! Maybe you should box your beans in return for that frightful experience. But you braved it like a trooper! Headbutts for you!

Guido, that is not the kinda box we like! But we're glad everything went well and you will have some roast pork! YUM!

The Whiskeratti said...

Stabby Place visits are awful, but necessary. We're glad to see he did well and has been released!

Eric and Flynn said...

Oh no! We are glad our Boxing Day is not like that.

Brian said...

Yes, I agree, that is the wrong kind of box for Boxer Day fur sure!

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh no I feel so much for you because I have been so much lately but at least you are ok and got a fab luch afterwards. Glad you are ok.. Hugs GJ xx

Boo-Bah AKA Iris said...

It looks like Guido handled his visit to the vet pretty well! This surely deserved an extra helping of pork.

I read your previous post regarding the Tuxie cat. How wonderful that he is going to be okay. Many thanks to people like you who care about animals. What on earth could cause a human to injure a cat! Nothing! Him/her was just a rotten excuse for a human.

that sure isn't the kind of box that Boxing Day is about but I am glad that Guido tested well so that makes it ok!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope you got a large portion of roast pork Guido cos you deserve a whole pig for the morning you had!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Poor Guido, spending boxing day at the vet ! Fortunately he didn't box him, lol !

Just read your post below. How can people be so cruel to animals, I will never understand. I would do the same to the person who did this !

Sharon Wagner said...

Oh no. I've heard that it is also O.K. to eat any and all boxed food on that day. Dig in!
