Going to the Vet...Fluffy and Bandit

Bandit and I have been scratching a lot. A lot. The humans noticed this. Today, they put us each in a weird container with holes. We didn't like it.
Bandit...I have a bad feeling about this. I'm going to escape!

Then we were lifted up in the weird crates, and we were placed into a really big, and we mean huge, black thing. We found out that it is called a 'car'. Then, we sat for a long, long time until we finally stopped. I sniffed. My instinct was right-- we had come to the vet. We had come to Cedar Pet Clinic.
Bandit, look! There's the sign! I was right! This is bad...

We were then taken inside, where we took a deep sniff...and smelled danger.
It's Moe...this means trouble.
Thankfully, Moe didn't seem to see us. Actually, he probably didn't care. Anyway, we waited a minute or two and then were whisked away into a room a few human-steps away. Our crates were opened up, and Bandit was taken out!
I guess I'm the lucky one! I don't get to be picked up! Yay!

Well, as it turned out, I was picked up, too. The vet said that we either had mites or lice. Then Bandit and I were each taken away into a back room, where our vet, Dr. Baillie, did some work. When we were taken back into the room, he told the humans that we had mites.
Yes! Back into the room where our humans are!

Dr. Baillie gave us some medicine. It says "for puppies & kittens", but it will work for us, too. He gave us the right amount for all five of us piggies. He wanted to make sure that no one else had any mites and that it wouldn't spread. Thankfully, it wasn't a medicine that had to be injected.
Looks funny. Smells funny, too.

After that, the vet took two of our humans into the back room. He came out again, and he also showed the humans what kind of mites we have. It was a mite called Notoerdres muris. It could also be the mite pictured below. Both are supposedly extremely similar.
Bandit, that's on us! That's kinda gross...

Unfortunately for our humans, they had to clean the whole island as well as the cage and stuff. In case you haven't read our blog before, we live on a carpet that is covered by towels in the middle of the floor. We never stray onto the floor-- that's uncharted territory. 
Wow! Look how different our island looks while the humans
are cleaning it!

Thankfully, the medicine is supposed to start working within 24 hours. Thank you, Dr. Baillie, for the medicine (even if we don't like going to the vet)!
