Thursday Thirteen, Edition #31

Many of you know that I have been studying to become a doctor. I have a Milton-Bradley home study course called "Operation" that teaches me everything I need to know about doing surgery. I been studying hard, but here are 13 obstacles I must overcome:
  1. Cavity Sam is not a good patient. I keep finding Temptations inside his Breadbasket!
  2. I found out that the anklebone is NOT actually connected to the shin bone. I might need a whole new anatomy module.
  3. I am scairt that once I remove the Spare Ribs, I will want to eat them. I do not think this is allowable for a surgeon. But I am not sure.
  4. I cannot find any surgical gloves that fit my paws properly.
  5. It is also very hard to find cute pink surgical scrubs for cats.
  6. I am having trouble removing the Charlie Horse. This is a very hard operation.
  7. The tweezers scalpel is hard to work since I do not have opposable thumbs.
  8. I am trying to train Pixie to become a surgical assistant, but I found out she is not very good at medicine.
  9. I cannot figure out how to bill the insurance companies.
  10. Also, my Mommie will not give me any stamps to send my bill.
  11. I am not sure how much to charge for my operations. Do you think 17 cents is too much money? I would only charge 12 cents for the Charlie Horse operation until I get better at that one.
  12. I do not like to wash up. So, I am not sure my operations will be sterile.
  13. And finally, I am in despair because I cannot figure out how to work the anesthesia machine! And I think this might be important.

58 Notes for Daisy:

michico 小芥 said...

Wowww, you want to be a doctor~! Your aspiration is very big~!

I think No.8 is truly very difficult, I am not sure Pixie will happy to be a assistant.

Can I give you a suggestion? I think you may be an alienist.
Because michico read from a book said, cats could treat Alzheimer's disease, treat melancholia, treat many many psyche disease. Can't recovered to health, but could turn better or prevent people to get those.

I think you will be the best alienist ever. Also, an alienist could give medicine to patient. Maybe Pixie will do that, because it's not so complicated, Haha... just kidding~!

Back to the subject, I wish you could success to be a doctor, there is always could find a way to go.

Daisy said...

Whoa! I think I would like to be an alienist!

maggie said...

You are funny Daisy! Happy TT and a big meow to you .

Minx, Muffin and Ebbie said...

WOW! It sure sounds hard to lern to be a surgeon. I fink maybe you aren't charging enuff - you are, afterall, haffing to werk furry hard to be a surgeon, and da bean surgeons charge lots and LOTS of papers!

I fink dat your paws will be perfectly okay if you just giff dem dere usual thorough wash - we cats are, afterall, furry furry clean. Pink scrubs wud be kyoot tho - Skeezix wud lyke dem!

Purrs, Muffin

impworks said...

I here the real money's in specialisation these days. So pick just one of those operations to do really well and then charge lots for it.

:-)

Dragonheart said...

My mom is studying Anatomy and Physiology (she is working on a Masters degree in Physiotherapy) so if you need some help, Daisy, I'm sure she'd be happy to tutor you in anatomy. :)

Hootin'Anni said...

Oh Daisy....this is just too cute. Hope your aspirations are acquired.

Our cat Winston talking: My mewmie is still laughing 'cause she hates that game and the buzzer!!

Di said...

Do NOT read my TT this week as I cast aspersions on cat blogs. However, in my defense, a tiny feral kitten adopted us last week during a huge rain and thunderstorm. We got her shots (through my friend who runs a non-profit to help get animals spayed/neutered and to help homeless people who have pets) and loved her for a few days until we found her a wonderful home. She even made friends with my 85 pound doberman who has no idea that size DOES matter in the animal world!

Henry Helton said...

I do not think that I would be able to be a surgeon. I did not even know they had home study courses for kitties to teach him how to be a doctor. If I ever get bladder stones again, Daisy, I am coming to see YOU!

Caesar and Princess said...

It seems to me that you need a higher level operations kit. It is clear to me that this module is below your level now... Hasn't this one been around for a bazillon years?
when my mommie went to nursing school I believe she studied with Cavity Sam.

have a spiff day, Daisy.
Hugs to you and Pixiekins

Purrs, Prinnie

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

Great Thursday Thirteen Daisy. It sounds like you haff lots to do in yore studying to be a doctor. I would charge more than 17 cents. Probably 17 cents and a whole bag of Temptations.

poppyq said...

Gosh Miss Daisy - you are not only pretty, but so very clever. My mum laughed and laughed when she read this post.

She works at the hospital too - to get some moneys to buy me treats!!

Darling you are worth much more money than 17cents per operation. You should charge them at least a dollar.

Good luck!

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

hi daisy. if i need a opperashum i wud pay u 30 cents, ok?

smiles, auntie bee

Claudio said...

Hey it is really refreshing to find a blog completely different from what we usually see... So I guess I am talking with Daisy right?
Anyway daisy... I have never had a cat and I want to buy an Exotic cat... do you think that is a good cat breed to have as a pet?

GarthTrekker said...

Too funny. Cats are cool cool animals! Lyn from Bloggin' Outloud

Daisy said...

Claudio: I think you would love having a Devon Rex cat! We have very outgoing, funny personalities, our fur is very soft and wavy and we hardly shed at all!

I admire your desire to learn and better yourself Daisy.

I think maybe the reason your Mom won't give you the money for stamps is because of the rates you are charging. 17 cents won't even cover the charge of the stamp so you'd end up losing money everytime you send out a bill.

Maybe Pixie could help you out on the business end of things.

Tara said...

It sounds like it would be really hard to be a surgeon. Looks like my ears post will be of some help in your studies!

Tara

MamaLee said...

WOW. Lots of things to learn and remember! LMAO

Happy TT!

Jane said...

Daisy, you do make me chuckle. Surely an outstanding junior doctor of your calibre should have an anaesthetist to operate that machine, would Pixie help out there? I have to say that 17 cents is a very low price for an operation, but maybe when you qualify you will concentrate on giving operations to those with no money? That would be admirable!

Monty Q. Kat said...

Maybe Pixie can run the insurance part of your office, MomBean's always muttering that KidBean's forms are filled by monkeys, so a kitty filier is a step up, right?

And I think you should charge 50 cents per operation or part you work on, thay way you can pay for your stamps.

I'll look for pink scrubs for you!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh oh, dat anas, aenes, go to sleep machine looks kompikated. Yoo need to charge more fur yoor operashuns cuz da edjukashun alone is hard. Da paper fur yoor bills and da stamps will cost more den 17 cents. Maybe Pixie wood be better as yoor resepshunist. She cood gif mean looks to da pashunts dat don't haf da inshurints.

Spirit and Ezra said...

Ezra sez... Max and Buddha's dad can do anesthesia. Maybe you can ask him to help you.

Forty Paws said...

Well, we agree with Jane. Most surgeons don't operate the go to sleep machine. They have anaesthetists to do that because that alone is a specialty. You'll definitely need to charge more, because we hear that malpractice insurance costs a fortune now-a-days.

And we think the Kattonics have a great idea with having Pixie as your receptionist to give mean looks to any patients who don't want to pay.

Tyler said...

Daisy, I think I may be able to help. I have a few doctors in my family. As soon as I read your blog, I called my uncle, who is a people's skin doctor. He told me that your problem is that you are trying to be too much. You need to find a specialty. Maybe you don't want to be a surgeon at all. Maybe you could be a psychiatrist or mabye a doctor of laughter, since you seem to be very good at making people laugh. Maybe you could be a cat doctor instead of a people doctor. And then maybel you could be a doctor of cury hair.

The Meezers said...

Daisy, I doesn't think 17 cents is too much, for the harder oper-way-shuns, you should prolly charge 22 cents.

Daisy said...

Tyler, thanks for the advice. I am going to think very carefully about this. I never knew there were so many specialties. Choosing will be very hard.

Pixie said...

Look, Daisy! I am practicing my mean scowl. I think I would much rather work in the front office than help with the surgeries. I hate bloods.

Skittles, The Huntress said...

Dear Daisy,

I think if you can get hooked in with the insurance companies, you could charge a lot more than 17 cents.

Skittles, The Huntress

Skeezix the Cat said...

Daisy, yoo are REELY REELY GOOD at snout-to-snout reesusitayshun. So that shood make up for not being as good at the Charlie Horse.

Skeezix the Cat said...

PEE ESS: Do yoo wunt me to send yoo sum Skeezix Stamps so yoo can male yer bills to the insherinse cumpannys?

Daisy said...

Skeezix, I am finding out that this doctoring business is a lot harder than I thought!

Ariel said...

Great Thirteen very funny.17 cents for an operation is great mommy says she wishes you could take out her gall bladder.

Icon Baxter Bentley said...

Maybe you should hold off on being a surgeon.... (Unless you go into business with Oscar (he is on my blog today))
I think it would be ok to eat the Spare Ribs.

wait, did you say Cavity Sam is made of Temptations!?

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

I dunno anything 'bout medicine, but I still think you must be a pawesome doctor!!

~Donny and Marie

Dorothy said...

Grethen and I think your 13 is very cute. If we need an operation we might consider getting you to perform it. Especially if you're only charging 17 cents.
Good luck.

Hot(M)BC said...

Yeah, all good surgeons have anesthetetetists (or whatever they're called) to work the anesthesia machine. And maybe you could use Endicia.com to do postage for sending your bills. That's what Mom uses. 17 cents sounds reasonable to me. The v-e-t charged a LOT more for my hoohaectomy and he isn't nearly a cute a surgeon as you. I think surgeons that are cute can charge more, just like cute movie stars, yanno.
Purrrrrs,
your bud Pepi

Tripper the Psyko Stray Cat said...

DAISY IF PIXIE SUKS AS AN ASSISTINT, CAN I BE YER ASSISTINT? I think I'd be vary good becuz I'd be happy to figyer owt that anestheezya kontrapshun owt and I'm VARY ENTHOOZIASTIK and I cood steel sum of the wite sqweek toy's stamps so yoo cood male yer bills and git munney and if yer payshunts didn't pay up I cood go arownd and "PERSWADE" them to pay up or else bunnykikk them until they did and give them my scarey face OOOH THARE'S A BUTTERFLY!!!! I THINK THE ORANJE ONES TASTE BETTER THAN THE YELLOW ONES and I'd even be happy to jump up and sleep with yer payshunts hoo had bad Charlie Horse operayshuns and arn't gonna make it, just like Oscar the Deth Cat duz and maybe I cood be yer apprentiss and lern to do sum operayshuns myself becuz I need to have a job I think and I woodn't wunt to be yer assistint furrever maybe just for like a week wich sumtimes SEEMS like furrever and yoo cood just pay me in FISH FLAKES. Hay, yoo got any more of them fish flakes?????

Christine and FAZ said...

Dear Dr Daisy, you have clearly thought all of this through which suggests to me you don't need to worry and will make a brilliant surgeon. If you're not too worried about everything being sterile then you don't need surgical scrubs either and can wear anything you like - as long as you look good that's all that matters. I do suggest, however, you don't indulge in the Nip before performing surgery as this may make you a little unsteady on your paws. A lot of doctors indulge in the Nip because of pressure of work and studying too hard. Maybe you better not study too hard either. FAZ

INAMINI said...

Dear Dr. Daisy,
My Mom wishus that she had yoo purform hur bak surgury. Yoo sownd like yoo are furry consurned abowt yur payshunts, and that's the most impurrtant thing. Good Luk!
LOKi

Daisy said...

Tripper, maybe you could be a Candy Striper. That means your job would be to go around and cheer up the patients after their operations. And you could try to explain why their spare ribs got eated all up. OK?

HRH Yao-Lin said...

HAHAHA Daisy you are so funnY! I think the last one might be a bit important, you know, just a little but nevermind - you are doing just fine - don't worry so much, you are a very intelligent kitty!!! Dr Daisy! xx

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Daisy DO NOT let Pixie handle charging patients for their operations!! She would charge them bananners instead then you wouldn't be able to pay back your student loans.

Daisy said...

Thanks for the tip! I was wondering why Pixie has been stocking up on fruit bowls...

Samantha & Tigger said...

Daisy, we think you would make a great Doctor!! Do you like blood? We think you are worth more that 17 cents,at least $2.00, and temptations of course!
Your FL furiends,

Shilgiah the Cat said...

Hi Daisy,
You will make a great doctor! You should go visit Max the Psychokitty. Max says that the man person (a.k.a.the dad) "passes gas at night". The dad person has his own blog called ISED8U so that might help you figure out how to use anethesia stuff...or you could become a Dr. Daisy the Cat Psychologist and skip all that surgery stuff.

zevo calamari said...

you know.. we could use a doctor here at the casino... would you like to be on staff?

Daisy said...

I would love to be on staff. Except I do not have my license yet. Do you think I could get in trouble for practicing without a license???

Chairman Mao said...

Wowie, Daisy, I think it's great you wanna be a docktor! And I think Operashun is a furry furry good thing to pracktice on. Cavity Sam is a good pashunt; Momma tells me so -- she sez she used to pracktice on him when she was a little kid ecksept she's notta docktor, she's a riter, hehe.

And she sez ACK that Charlie Horse was alwayz extra-hard to get out!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Hmmm, that anesthesia machine does look very complicated! I think that is a separate thing to study -- my, becoming a doctor is so complicated, isn't it? But if anykitty can do it, I'm sure you can, dear Daisy!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Mosaic Cats said...

You know what's funny, Daisy?
(Besides you?)
Whenever we read a list you write we always make sure to share it with Mosaic Lady because we know exactly what will happen: She starts reading, and reads, and reads, and then suddenly she snorts out loud! It's like you set her up or something. Today it was #9.

Maybe it's cuz just this afternoon she faxed off a claim to AFLAC, hoping she could get them to pay an accident benefit on a flipped off tooth veneer! Had she not had her health & life insurance license THREE times in three decades -- perhaps not such a loud snort.
We like to watch her snort.
It's so attractive on a female bean.
Your friends in NC with most of our teeth back in our snorty heads now.

DaisyMae Maus said...

I hope that you can figure out the anesthesia machine furry soon 'cuz beans don't want to be cut apart without some kinda drugs for the pain!

Oh, and hoo-has might hurt a lot without drugs.

DMM

Junior said...

Awwww Daisy...if anyone can figure out how to do all that, you can!

Boy said...

Wow daisy, you studying to be a doctor! Then do work weal hard and be a doctor to us kitties. Then we won't have to go to the shooty person and get shooted or have something stuffed up the you know where, or...well you know...
Do finish your studies quick!

Actuawwy I think, you should be done, maybe you can just start pwactising! Perhaps charging 15cents would be ok?

Karen Jo said...

I love your TT, Daisy. Don't worry too much about the sleepy machine. Doctors have someone else do that for them. I wonder how the Temptations get in the Breadbasket.

Kimo & Sabi said...

A heavy dose of nip might substitute fer da anesteeza, and as far as how much to charge - well, we fink 3 quarters, 1 dime, 2 nickles, 7 pennies, and 4 bottle caps (2 Heinnekin, 1 Heifferwiessen, 1 Anchor Steam).

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

Daisy it is very important NOT TO TAKE ANY WOODEN NICKLES!
I don't know what that means, but mommy yelled for me to write you that advice.
