What a week! I was so embarrassed I couldn’t even talk about it until now. Mom said I could put my art up today so let me start with the normal picture.
Mom went to work Thursday morning and Steinbeck and I did our normal things. We found sun puddles and started napping. Shortly after that, Mom came in the house again. I looked at her and wondered why she was home so early. Then my mental acuteness kicked in. I knew this was trouble and the trouble was going to involve me!
Mom tried to pick me up off the floor and somehow she managed to fall flat on her face. I scooted away but Steinbeck stood there and wondered why she was on the floor. She finally got up and started looking for me in all my favorite hidey spots. I had her fooled. Then she asked Steinbeck where I was. That little squirt ratted me out and led Mom right to where I was hiding!! Can you believe it??
We finally got to the doctor’s house. (Yes, I had figured out that’s where we were going.) Mom had trouble getting me out of the car. She doesn’t put me in a carrier ‘cuz I weigh 22 pounds and normally I’m really calm. I was calm this time but I was super slippery. I turned myself into oil and Mom just couldn’t hold me. I found my moment to escape and I went under her car. She was in the parking lot walking all around the car and kneeling in the snow and ice. I kind of felt sorry for her ‘cuz she’s told me that she has fake knees and it’s hard to kneel. However, I didn’t feel sorry enough to come out from under the car. Mom walked into the doctor’s house and told them I was there but I was under her car and wouldn’t come out. They know me there and Mom said there was a little laughing. Hmmmmmmmmmm
Next thing I knew, Marcus came out with this big net. I wondered if he was going to try to catch a fish or a butterfly. Surprise! He used it to catch me!! Do I look like a fish or butterfly?? He picked me up and carried me into the clinic and even though I voiced my opinion, I didn’t try to get loose.
What was my problem? It’s so embarrassing! I had dirty pants. I have long fur and sometimes it gets matted back there ‘cuz I won’t let Mom brush me or trim me there. She can brush me all over but not there! So, I was ready for a trim and a little cleaning. They also checked those nasty anal glands and made sure I didn’t have any infections. I won’t admit it out loud but I did feel better after they took care of me.
When we got home, I showed Mom what a good kitty I am. She opened the back door of her car and I calmly walked out. Then I walked to the gate and waited for her to open it. I walked through the gate and right up to the back door and waited for her. No problem at all. However, I did go hide once we were inside. I didn’t want to discuss what had happened with Steinbeck and I didn’t want to hear him laughing.
When Mom came home again at night, I was speaking to her again and I even slept with her. It was such a ruff day but I’m all better and Mom is happy that I’m all clean. Oh, that Marcus said something about me losing weight. That wasn’t necessary!
So, here’s my Caturday Art picture for the day. I hope I didn’t bore you with my antics.
