More About My Trip to the Vet

I feel better tonight so I thought I would tell you more about my trip to the vet. Mommy carried me in my "cage" and put me on the counter at the doctor's office. I was facing the back of the office where the ladies sit, only they weren't there. 'Lo and behold, what did I see? My goodness, if only I hadn't been so sick I would have crashed out of my cage and caught myself a great big green bird. You see the big green bird wasn't in a cage, but was sitting there on a branch. He had a bunch of toys hanging all around him. Yeah, right, like a dumb bird knows what to do with toys. Mommy talked to him and he talked back. He could speak English! Of course, I can understand English like I told you once before, but this BIRD could actually speak it. So then I figured he wasn't so dumb after all, but I bet he's still tasty.
Then what do you think happened? Well, I won't keep you in suspense. Then a cat came and peeked in my cage and said hi to me. Honest to goodness, she did. I think she was probably fixed like me, even though I don't really think I was broken to begin with. However, Mommy told me I was "fixed", so I guess I was broken before. I'll never really understand it. Then this strange cat sat on top of my cage. Just like that. Climbed right up there and sat on my cage. I'm sure glad she didn't decide to pee.
Then the nice lady took my cage and put me in the back. It's like a zoo back there. She put me in a nice big cage with a litter box and some water. I stayed there for a very long time. Mostly I slept. Finally, another nice lady came and took my temperature. I won't even tell you how she did that. It was horrible, I tell you, horrible. Then she took me to see the doctor. He had very big strong hands and he held me so that I wasn't afraid. He poked and prodded me and checked me where the sun doesn't shine. It was the experience of a lifetime. And an experience I don't want to experience again. Then the doctor gave me the yucky medicine and I heard him call my mommy which I already told you about.
After that I was put back in the cage and pretty soon I could hear my daddy. Boy, was I glad to hear him. He took me home and put the Advantage on the back of my neck. Then I went to my favorite place to sleep, the closet. I stayed there until Mommy came home from work. I was so glad to hear her voice that I went right out to greet her. She was happy to see me up and about. She picked me up and gave me a hug. Now normally I would not tolerate this, but it had been such a rough day and I was so happy to see her that I put up with it. Then I sharpened my claws on Daddy's couch. He gets so excited when I do that. After that Mommy took me to her house. You see Mommy and Daddy don't live together. Mommy says men are a PITA, whatever that means. Anyway, it's kind of nice to have Mommy all to myself without sharing her with Chiquita and Molly. They like to climb up on her lap. I pretend I don't care.

And that's the story of my day.

My Trip to the Vet

Well, Mommy took me to the vet this morning and dropped me off because she couldn't get an appointment for me. The vet has what is called drop off appointments and he just had a cancellation. This means that Mommy had to leave me (very upsetting) alone at the vet's and the vet then saw me at lunch time. Egad, what that man did to me. Meow. I heard him call my mommy and tell her that I had a very high fever. I could have told him that if he'd only asked. He also told her that I had fleas. I have never had a flea in my life and I am 5 years old. I know my mom and I know she probably almost dropped dead from a heart attack at that news.

Anyway, the vet said that he was pretty sure I was having a delayed reaction to a shot I received last week and that is why I had a high temperature. I'm just so tired and hot. He gave me some medicine and Mommy has to give it to me every day for awhile. I am going to shut my mouth real tight so she can't get it in. I don't like that medicine. Tastes yucky. He is also giving Mommy some Advantage to take care of the flea problem.

Now I think I know where I got these fleas. Little Miss Chiquita. Chiquita is Daddy's new rescue kitty and Mommy says he must now put some Advantage on her and also on Little Miss Molly. These flea things can be such a problem. They bite me really hard. Mommy does not believe in Advantage because she says she doesn't like poison going into my body, but now she feels like she has no choice. And Mommy is even allergic to fleas. It beats me how she didn't know I had them since she combs me a lot. I guess mommies aren't perfect. However, I am going to make her feel very, very guilty. heheh

I can't wait to feel better so I can scratch Molly again. I really miss that. It's such fun. I guess that's one of the bad things I do, but if it's bad, why is it fun? I don't think it can be all that bad.

And to Troubles: Thanks for thinking of me, Troubles. We'll chat again soon.

Your friend,


Today I am sick and don't know how to tell my Mommy. She is very smart, however, and says she is taking me to the vet. I don't like going to the vet, but the girls there always fuss over me. I really like that. They are such pretty girls and they like all the animals there. The vet has dogs he lets run all over the place. I don't like them much, but at least they leave me alone. Mommy says she likes my vet because he loves animals. Personally, I think it doesn't hurt that he's cheaper than my last vet. Meow.

It's Fun at My House

Mommy goes away sometimes. I never like it when Mommy goes away, but I make the best of it. Mommy says you should always make the best of whatever life deals you. (Did I  mention she's nuts?) One time she went away for months and months and I had to stay with Daddy and the DOG! Oh woe is me. I scratched Molly whenever Daddy wasn't looking. I even scratched her once when Daddy was looking. Daddy told me to stop that. Hah! Like I would.

Sometimes though Mommy and Daddy go away together. Normally I would be very unhappy about that, but this nice lady named Lynn comes and stays with us. She stays all day and all night and plays with me a lot. Lynn can be somewhat of a ditz though. Yeppers. Once she locked herself out of the house and couldn't get back in. Good thing she's a skinny little thing. She came in Molly's doggy door.  It was hilarious. She came in head first, the same way Molly does, but her feet weren't under her. They were stuck out straight behind her. I went up to her and smelled her because I just couldn't believe my little eyes. Yep, it was Lynn all right. So, anyway, she squeezed her way right through that doggy door. Of course, Molly couldn't go outside while this was taking place. Molly was standing there doing a jig because she had to go to the bathroom. I laughed so hard my sides ached.

Yep, it's a lot of fun at my house. You just never know what's going to happen.

Calling Santa Claus - Help Needed

Mommy and Daddy dressed me up as the Easter Bunny and took my picture. Whatever are they thinking? I will eat those baby chicks quick as a blink. One, two, three. Yeppers. Eat them.

More of Chiquita and Molly

Chiquita and Molly are going to be the death of me. Chiquita is always hugging up to my mommy, trying to make Mommy like her better than me. Well, it's not going to work. I jump on her and growl at her. I am much bigger and stronger. And Molly is not really very bright. I sometimes do bad things and Molly takes the blame. It's very funny.

Chiquita and Molly

Chiquita and Molly are my sisters. That's what Mommy calls them anyway. I have different words to call them. The top picture is of Chiquita. She's about one years old. Mom says she was a rescue kitty. Rescued from what? The other picture is of Molly. She's 10. I'll tell you more about them another time. It's time for me to take my nap.

Mommy locked me in the bathroom again last night. What's with that? All I was doing was chewing on an electrical cord. Sheesh! It tasted good. I really hate being locked in the bathroom. Mommy had such a fit.

I'm Going Bald

My fur is falling out. Somebody help me! It is all over the house. I'm so afraid I will go bald like some men my mom knows. Do you think I will? Mommy picks up the fur and the next day it's back on the floor again. This is unreal. Help!

American Idol

Mommy loves American Idol. But guess what? She fell asleep last night just before the contestant was eliminated. So I know who got the boot and she doesn't. meow meow. She woke up this morning and  was so mad she had watched the whole show and then missed the end. Poor Mommy. Maybe if she hadn't gotten home so late and not left me alone all day she would have been able to stay awake!

Time Change

You know, I really like this time change thing. Mommy gets up and feeds me earlier. I used to have to scratch her back with my claws and pull on her hair to get her up. Today I didn't have to do any of that. I think I must have been good last night because I didn't get locked in the bathroom. I slept next to my mom. I don't usually sleep on the bed because it's too warm for me there. I like cold places like the bathroom sink or Mommy's basin which she brought home from the hospital one time. She calls it her barf basin, whatever that means. Some big men came into the house and took her away and I didn't see her again for days and days. I really missed her. I heard her say she was thinking about throwing the basin out and I was so afraid she would. Then she said that she just couldn't because I liked it so much. You would be surprised at how much English we cats understand. Of course, French cats understand French and Mexican cats understand Spanish, and so on. Even with the language barrier, all cats understand each other. Meow!

Today Mommy made my favorite, macaroni and cheese. Can you please tell me why she made it if she didn't want to share with me? Humph. She turned around for a minute and I took my chances and helped myself. Mommy was upset.

And the Earth Moved

Yesterday morning I was doing kitty things around the house when suddenly I felt the floor beneath my feet begin to move. This is scary for someone as little as me. Later I heard the pretty blonde lady on the TV say that we had had an earthquake. So that is what you call it. I have felt this before, but never knew what it was. I always used to call it earthmove, but the correct word is earthquake. I learn something new every day.

Last Night

I guess I was bad again last night because at about 4:00 a.m. Mommy locked me in the bathroom. Maybe it was because I was chewing on the lampshade and knocked the lamp on the floor. Oh, that is such fun. I love the noise it makes. Mommy bought new lamps; they're made of something shiny, silver and very hard. I heard Mommy tell the TV people that she bought those lamps because she was afraid I would break her old lamps and cut myself. Hah! I am far too smart for that! Anyway, I howled and howled in the bathroom until Mommy let me out. Gosh, Mommy looks so tired today. I think she needs more sleep than I do. I really don't mean to be bad. It's just I'm not exactly sure what bad is. Mommy does tell me I'm a good girl sometimes and pets me on the head. She also combs my hair and tells me how pretty I am and how very much she loves me. I love her, too. I just wish she would explain this bad stuff. Maybe one of you could help her explain it to me. Meow!
