Warning! If your human says you’re going on a field trip and it will be lots of fun, don’t believe it! Humans are very sneaky. Did you know that humans keep in touch with those fur doctor people? My Mom is a traitor. She told me about a month ago that I was just going to see the doctor man to make sure I was healthy. What she didn’t tell me was that she made an appointment for another time. This morning I got up all bright and cheery and woke Mom up earlier than usual. She didn’t seem to really mind ‘cuz we had a bad storm go through last night and we lost power. Well, in the storm I thought she lost her mind, too. Normally she gets up and feeds us and then goes on her walk. She went out on her walk without feeding us!!!
I was a very unhappy kitty.
Shakespeare, this is my story so just go back to sleep. Anyway, next thing I knew she was carrying me out to the car and she said we were just going on a ride to check out all the damage from the storm. She lied to me!!! We ended up at the doctor man’s house!!! Then she left me!!!! Can you imagine? No breakfast and I get dumped off at a strange place.
I don’t remember much of what happened ‘cuz Mom said the doctor man made me go to sleep so he could clean my teeth. What business is it of his to be cleaning my teeth? Just leave the toothbrush out with some catnip flavored toothpaste and I’ll do it myself.
It was a very long day but Mom finally came back to get me. When the doctor man gave me to her, I buried my face in her arm ‘cuz I was so happy. I was afraid she had forgotten me.
Now, get this……………….
Look what the doctor man did. He gave me a PINK bandaid thing around my front leg. I’m a boy kitty. I should have had a blue bandaid thing. However, I will admit it looks kind of pretty against the black.
I better not hear any of the neighbor dogs laughing at me ‘cuz I’m wearing pink!
Notes from the Mom: Hemingway did fine during his procedure. They were concerned that he might have a tumor but when they checked it they found it was nothing so I was very relieved. I know Hemingway didn’t have the best day and it was super hard for me to leave him, but it’s good to know he’s healthy. Meanwhile, Shakespeare had the house to himself today and he won’t tell me what he did.
