Who ha, get dat pig! Here he comes Kali…snort, snort.
Do you think our friend Bacon looks like this pig, Shoko? Sure, if he wore a grass skirt. Snort, snort.
Hey it’s quiet, where’s mom? She’s gone to the dentist. Oh cwap…I know how she feels ….poor mom. It’s just for a cleaning. Just…. JUST for a cleaning…cleanings are, *HELL on nip.* They take weeks to get over. You’re being dramatic again Shoko. They’re not that bad. Are too!
Mom’s home…my what clean teeth you have mom. Hey what’s dad doing? Kali…. Kali!
Kali stands up yelling in her carrier. Mew, Mew Mew….(translation)…run and hide Shoko. You don’t have to tell me twice Kali, I’m gone. Cwap…get away mom. Shoko lays down in her travel box.
I know where we’re going. It’s no mystery Shoko. We only ever go to the vet in the car. Maybe we’ll get Dr. Sara, I like her. She’s still going to poke and prod us, Kali. I demand to go home…IMMEDIATELY, if not sooner.
Nobody’s listening to me Kali. I guess they mean business. Dr. Sara said I have excellent teeth. They look like a 1 year olds teeth. Wow, I’m doing good. I also have some arthritis in my back leg but not like Kali. What? NO, not me! She said I have gained over a pound since I got my teeth out. Lordy, not a diet. Dr. Sara told mom to weigh me once a week to see if I’m still getting voluptuous (my word not hers) and if I am we’ll have to do something because I’m risking diabetes. Mom’s told me what a terrible disease this is. I’m depressed. Dr, Sara gave me 3 needles and then I was really down in the dumps.
Kali was next.
Kal was given the once over and prodded like a toy. Dr. Sara showed mom how to massage Kali’s back and joints. Kali’s iris’ have a fair bit of grey mist over them. This means she doesn’t see well. She would see things out of her peripheral vision better. However if a cat moved, her eyes will catch the movement.
Then we went home. There was no yelling or singing the song of our Meezer ancestors. Dr. Sara gave us lots to think about.
When we arrived home I headed for the bathroom.OK mom, let’s weigh in like Dr. Sara said. I don’t want to get diabetes or anything else.
May you have the lapse of memory to forget the people you never liked
The good fortune to run into the ones that you do,
And the eyesight to tell the difference.
