Taking the Pet to the V-E-T


Why oh why do my friends confess things to me? Haven't they learned that I'll write about it the next day? No matter...they won't sue because I have nothing but dust and books, so there you go.

A friend wrote yesterday about taking her cat to the Vet. Now I'm not naming names, but her pet's name is Sam, and she is the author of David's Bridge. That's all I'm saying. You figure it out.

Seems Pam, ah...I mean this person, and hubby, play this cat and human game when it's time to take Sammy to the V-E-T. I'm spelling it in case Sam reads today's blog.

So hubby runs to the back door, opens the garage and backs out the car. Next, he starts the engine, and then hides. Why? Does he really thing the cat will think, "Oh look, the car is taking itself out for a spin!" She confessed they do this because Sam hears the "ding-dong" bell whenever a door is opened or closed, and knows something is up.

If that cat is that smart, I guarantee you that he has read the calendar marked "V-DAY" and is wayyyy ahead of you.

Next, she puts Sammy's harness on like it's just another trip out to fertilize the yard. With cat in tow, they head out the door where she scoops him up making a break for the driverLESS car, which by this time, has run out five gallons of gas.

With feline secured in car, hubby jumps up and throws it into reserve and they race off to the V-E-T.

Gives new meaning to the word, "cat-napping," doesn't it?

I've known Sammy for years. My guess is that he's thinking:

"Oh geeish...hereeee we go. Whatever. I'll humor them and act surprise...again. Look at um, they're so smug. Hey, the V-E-T beats the B-A-T-H...any day."

JJ--telling on her friends. It's what I do.

Appropriate since I'm taking Spud to the Vet today! Not as funny as your blog, but still a trial!

Well! Sammy was innocently sitting on my lap here at the computer when I opened your blog up to read...needless to say when he saw his photo he knew I'd blabbed. No doubt the next time we have to take him to the vet we'll have to do some slight variation to "THE PLAN"....now that you've let the CAT OUT OF THE BAG (hahahahahaha) we'll have to surprise him...somehow.

Pam/anonymous I'm glad you shared your story with Georgia so she could blab about it. I laughed and enjoyed it.
I too have a cat and although the story's not the same I'd want to remain anonymous too if Georgia shared it. Cherry
