Dolly is friendly and outgoing and trusting. When she comes into the cats-exam room, she can’t wait to get out of her carrier. First thing she’ll do is give a nice and potent head butting to me and my nurse. Next she’ll proceed to lick our hands, and a small friendly nibble on the nose is a must.
Of course grooming us is essential for the visit. My nurse has long hair and she’ll gladly groom her hair. With me, she’s somewhat puzzled, as I have no hair on my head, alas…. But yet, Dolly is a very tactful cat and she never made an issue from the fact that her Doctor is bald.
Before we can proceed to a complete physical exam, Dolly must have some tummy rubbing; it’s protocol.
I always sing to Dolly her favorite song “Hello Dolly,” and she purrs in delight as she is being serenaded.
I have seen many cats and dogs throughout my long career. It’s amazing to me how they all have their own personalities, they are all individuals that love and want to be loved.
