What a Horrible Week
It’s been a very, very long time since I gots to post here. I’ve been in and out of trouble a lot so that’s meant being grounded and Mom takes the laptop with her a lot now. So much has happened since my last post that I’m not even sure wheres to begin.
Well, when in doubt – I shall vent!
I want my Mom to go back to work!! I am so mad at her right now, it’s not funny.
First, yesterday Mom took me to the vet. But before all of that she stuck me in a cage! I didn’t see Dr. Calista but another vet I’d never seen before. Yes, I have some itchy-bitey things on me, I knew this. But Mom and the vet didn’t and Mom was very cross with me. And after taking me to get stabbed twice in one visit (I got vaccines for feline leukemia and upper respiratory not rabies yet so only two shots not three) she had the nerve to get mad at me! Yes, it was proof that I snuck outside but it wasn’t like I did anything wrong. Then, after all that she threatened me with a BATH!!! The nerve!
Except, it wasn’t a threat….it was a promise! Mom checked my ears for the bitey bugs (which was okay if irritating) then she gave me a flea and tick bath. My only consolation is that The Kitten Who Shall Not Be Named got one too. Yes, there is a new kitten here with us, but that’s a story for another time. This is after I got that nasty spray on my ears yesterday too. So, naturally I was mad, and since Mom wasn’t listening to me I told her in a way that left no room for misunderstandings.
I bit her. Twice.
Well, Mom wasn’t happy with that but HA! Misery loves company.
Although I think it backfired on me. I got a smacked on the nose for my efforts. Still got the bath, and when I dry Mom is going to put those drop treatments on me. But the worst crime, she took away my red collar and she’s gonna replace it with a flea collar to boot! And I won’t be getting it back because it got cut off me and thrown away. The excess part of it that wraps around and goes under the buckle has always been long and I like to pull it down to play with it. Well, it got really dirty and somehow expanded so it wouldn’t pull back through the loop let alone the buckle to come off. I tried to tell Mom it wasn’t tight on me so it didn’t need to come off, but Mom wasn’t having any of that and SNIP she just cut it off and said I’d get a new collar. Grrr
And did I mention, because I bit her Mom didn’t give me any treats or canned cat food like she normally does after the bath? That’s right, she didn’t. Oh, but The Kitten Who Shall Not Be Named got some. So not fair.
I was happy that Mom got some vacation time and took a week off, but now I want her to go back to work. It’s only Tuesday and I’m already miserable.
