Cat Lovers Empathize With Owner Whose Rescue Cat Refuses To Go To The Vet

Many of us have been there…needing to take our cat to the vet, but our normally docile feline turns into the Tasmanian devil when the crate comes out. Kiara Burns (@kiaracburns) shared her struggle to get her cat, Hazel, to the vet and thousands of empathetic cat lovers responded.

Hazel wanted NOTHING to do with being loaded into her carrier, as evidenced by her screams and howls of distress. Hazel’s vocal response left commenters in stitches…

Multiple people had been in the same spot with their own cats.

A veterinary receptionist confirmed that Hazel’s response was not unusual.

Hazel didn’t make it to her veterinary appointment, but don’t worry – Kiara still loves her spicy cat unconditionally. She wrote:

Happy 5 year adoptaversary to the best thing to ever happen to me! Hazel, you give me a run for my money and I couldn’t love you more ❤️

  1. I get it! My cat is so hard to get into the carrier. I got him in to take him to a vet which was not close by. I could not find the darn place though and finally gave up. What a waste. Now I need to get him to one but just because I got him in the other day does not mean i would again. For those, or this person, who do not do this. Put the carrier on end and drop the cat in backwards. It is not easy but there is a better chance of getting him/her in.

    • I take out the carrier 1 week prior to vet visit. I place treats in the carrier so now my orange cat just walks into the carrier for her treats on the day, and I just shut the door. Needless to say, he is not too happy but that is the way it goes.

  2. My cat was never happy, because she knew if she went in her carrier she was going to the vet. I decided to take her in the carrier for rides and then bring her home, so she didn’t think she was always
    going to the vet. Now she doesn’t want to get out of the carrier when we get home. She loves to go for rides and look at the trees and just get out of the house for a little while. Now when I put her in the carrier she is happy.

  3. Wrong carrier!! Hard-sided, front opening, then upend it. Scruff kitty….supporting weight at the bottom. You do a reverse rabbit out of the hat trick. I usually hold the ankles and put them in first. The rest is usually easy. Be sure carrier door is latched.

  4. The lady is using a soft carrier which is not only impossible to use for hard to handle cats that want to run, but also isn’t safe and won’t protect the cat in the event of a car accident. And some cats learn how to push their head upward and pop up the zipper and escape and are lost forever if you are outside heading to the car or into the vet. Hard plastic and or metal parts is the only way to go. And not getting frustrated and giving up so easily is key. Plus, stuffing a cat that’s already covered by a large towel is going to make it hard to fit into the opening of said carrier. This woman is clearly a rookie cat owner. Any seasoned adult cat will get over on her. She needs to watch some Galaxy Jackson on YouTube to learn the in/outs of cat care.
