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.
Mom and dad are going away, like they did last year about this time. I’m being as dramatic as I can so mom feels guilty going away. She really has her nerve leaving us. Who will feed me, change my water fountain, change the kitty litter? I hope its not that strange woman from last year…she didn’t bother with us and hardly ever gave us wet food. MOM…you can’t go….I’ll die without my treats and goodies. Shoko pull yourself together…remember you’re a Cat Scout!! Cat Scouts don’t make peeps feel guilty and especially their mom. She does a lot for us so let’s help her pack and feel happy. See, just be available for mom. Help her, if you can. You’ve had this suitcase a long time mom. You must take good care of it. I’ll try it Kali…Mom you’ve had this suitcase like, forever! It’s time you broke down and bought a new one and don’t be so cheap. Really Shoko, that sounds awful. It does? This is my normal way of talking Kali. I don’t understand what you want me to say.
Mom you’ve packed all the clothes so snug and tidy. You have more room now. You try Shoko. Hey mom, do you really need 12 pairs of underwear? You do…well if you say so. There is plenty of room but don’t pack anymore…you’ll need the extra room for treats and toys for us. Kali shakes her head. I don’t think you’ll ever get the idea Shoks. Cwap Kali, I thought I was being helpful. Have fun mom and remember we love you and dad. Course we do and we’ll hold Fort Meezer in da Hood down for you. That’ll be hard cause we’re not allowed outside. Our new pet sitter will look after us or we’ll let you know right away.
