Today is the international "Take your cat to the vet clinic" day! Unfortunately, silly cats don't care about human days. What shall you do?

Start with doing mock medical procedures at home, to get the scaredy-cat used to being poked, prodded, and squeezed. Get the cat familiarized with the (preferably) solid carrier – let Admiral Wuss-Wuss sleep in it, leave in the living room, and make it a general part of life. Next comes car familiarization: take your cat on small rides, and gently increase their length so that Mittens gets used to it, as well as disassociating rides from veterinary clinic visits.

It's also a good thing to take a towel or blanket that smells of home with you to the vet hospital. Use it to make the kitty calmer in the waiting room, in the procedure area, and even leave this bit of home if an overnight stay is required. Having a good rapport with the vet also helps – being less stressed, and having a caring doctor helps the cat, too! But for now, take a look at these miserably funny cats, who just couldn't figure out the best hiding place avoiding a vet.
