Making the Most of a Bad Day

Abby: I had a very bad day today. At least, I believe I did. Ms. C and Mr. R took me to the vet today because I have been having belly problems again. Now that I know what a terrible place that is, I HATE it. Last time I went, I was a very good cat. But this time, I've taken lessons from Texas and became a mite bit fractious!

I made terrible, terrifying faces at all of the vet techs and I did not stop growling at the vet. When they took me back to the treatment room, I made sure everyone heard my screams. Ms. C is trying to claim it's a legend that she once did the same thing when she went to the doctor (and she was 12!!), but I think it's a true story, and so I still love her because I know she understands.

I hopefully will be back to my right self again soon. To tell you the truth, I do not feel that bad at all, but the humans are not happy with my flatulence.

So as you can see here, I am making the most of the rest of this day by relaxing thoroughly. I am not even going to harass Stygia. I've censored myself for your viewing discretion:

Here's a close up of my toes. I like to curl them when I am relaxing in this pose:

I am still growing and I am also gaining more skill in really knowing how to take up space:

Tomorrow I will let Styggie have some blog space, but she is busy sleeping right now and shhh we mustn't disturb! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

aw that stinks you had to go to the VET. Bendrix and I are very proud of your actions there. we were so, um, fractious and screamy and bitey that now we have to be gassed before examination.

we hope very much that your tummy feels all better soon and you and Stygia can start playing together.

Great toes BTW!

Way to go, Abby -- don't let them think they can treat you like a kitty doormat. Respect is what you're after.

Hope that the flatulence, um, passes soon... ;-)

Hi Abby. I am so sorry you had to go to the vet's. As you know, I have been spending far too much time at the vet's this week and I can't say I really enjoy the place either, although the ladies there are always very nice to me.

Hope you feel 100% better soon!

Your Pal,
Tom (Sen-Chan is busy having his breakfast)

I'm so sorry you had such a bad experience at the vet. I hope your tummy is better now.

We are thoroughly impressed by how much space one kitty can occupy in the last picture of this post. You definitely have an amazing talent.
