Scarlett was supposed to have a vet appointment yesterday (just routine stuff - I ended up rescheduling due to the bad weather), and I was going to bring Melly to get weighed. I got the carriers out a couple of days early so Scarlett could get used to them - she loathes the carrier. She is always able to sense when it's time to go somewhere, and hides in the deepest, darkest corner she can find. If she is particularly upset when grabbed and brought to the carrier, she sprays.* I'm pretty sure she saves up for the occasion.
Melly does not have this problem. She loves carriers. In fact, as I'm typing this, she is asleep in hers (the soft carrier), and has been for about an hour.
The following pictures were taken over the past two days.
*Scarlett had her teeth cleaned a little less than a year ago, a process which involved full anesthesia, and the experience was extremely traumatic for her. The next time she needed to go somewhere in the carrier (I think it was the follow-up visit), she sprayed all over me when I tried to put her in it. She's done it on and off ever since.
