Veterinarian Reenacts ‘If Animals Were Humans at the Doctor’ in Hysterical TikTok Series

My orange cat just wants to talk.

Any pet owner will tell you how much effort goes into visiting the vet. Cats will parkour off the exam table and find the singular inaccessible space to bide their time in, while dogs will do a backflip in fear of the built-in scale or mark their territory on the owners' couch. Well, one Nashville-area veterinarian is going viral on TikTok for her hysterical reenactments of different pets visiting her office, posed as different breeds if they were humans going to the doctor.

Dr. Molly Brinkmann is a small animal veterinarian, so she knows a thing or two about the colorful purrsonalities of our favorite furry friends. She's slipped into character as a handful of popular pets so far, including the "so universally flirtatious"—per one of the video's comments—male orange cat and the "happy go lucky" labrador retriever, with viewers begging for more.

Brinkmann not only adopts each breed's general air but customizes her look to reflect theirs'. As the orange kitty, Brinkmann entered the office with an orange baseball cap donned backward and a cocky demeanor. "Hey ladies, how's it goin'?" she greeted those working behind the desk. She lounged casually across the exam table. "I thought you might just wanna like, feel my abs," she said when told she didn't need to lay down for the exam.

As a lab, she put her hair up in a spunky side-pony and bounded exuberantly into the office, repeating her excitement for her appointment over and over and dancing about throughout the full clip, easily distracted by art on the wall and her curiosity over the vet's stethoscope.

She's also done huskies—nervously excitable—golden retrievers—whether they be of the hyper or lazy variety—and several others, with requests coming in on every video for german shepherds, beagles, and even a cavalier king charles spaniel.

Brinkmann was pretty popular before launching this series, with many of her educational or day-in-the-life-esque videos hitting the tens—if not hundreds—of thousands of views.
