Was This Really Necessary?


I think my Mom is getting paranoid about the health of the cats in this family. So, I was a little under the weather this weekend. So, just because a guy rests more than usual, doesn't eat much and sneezes a few squillion times does that mean he should be shoved in the carrier and taken to the V.E.T.?

Well that's what happened to me this morning. I was napping on the rocker cushion, when Mom came home from work unexpectedly. She grabbed me and off we went, me protesting the whole way in the car. Then the usual routine -- lights in eyes, ears & mouth, prodding, poking (you know where to get my temp!) Then...I can barely bring myself to tell you this part...then the V.E.T. held a mirror under my nose to check my breathing and said my right sinus is blocked!! Then the worst part came. She dripped salt water in my nose to try and make me sneeze out any blockage! It was all terribly embarassing.

I, being the gentleman that I am, behaved very well and the V.E.T. helper said how good I was. She told me about the cat before me that tried to bite her and I told her a gentleman never bites even when he's upset! And I was very upset! I was so upset I threw great globs of hair all over the V.E.T. and her helper, all over the exam table and all around the room.

Hmmpf! I hope it clogs their vacuum...that'll teach them not to drip water in my nose!!

So do you have to take medicine George? Glad you behave like a gentleman! Although the V.E.T. isn't pleasant, they only want to help!

I hope you sneezed out a giant booger. That would teach them to drip water into your nose.

Me, I would have pooped on them. A guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do, and that's whatever works!

I hope ya feel better and don't have to go back!

George - you poor boy! Is your tummy ok? It sometimes upsets it when you have to do those huge hairball thingies.

Hope your nose is breathing lots better.
