The vet tech I work with at the rescue couldn't come in today and needed someone to draw blood for a snap test for a new cat we just got in. She asked me last night if I could do it and I wasn't sure, but told her I could try. I watched some videos (I have seen it done a million times before, but never did it myself) and decided to give it a shot today. I taught one of the other helpers how to hold the cat and missed two times on the first leg (dang vein kept rolling!) so I tried the other leg and got it on my first try! I didn't even blow the vein and was able to pull plenty of blood. I'm so happy that I just needed to shout it out somewhere! Most people don't understand why I am so happy about successfully pulling blood from a cat! I've only ever done birds before. I am very lucky that the people at the rescue have so much faith in my skills! I am truly learning so much there.
