“Good morning, Tiger. Don’t look so alarmed. There will be no trip to the vet today”
“We were doing it for you, Tiger. Because we care about you. Just a short ride. A quick checkup. It would have been fine. “
“But you were going to put me in the box, weren’t you Sue?”
“Well yes, Tiger. That’s how it works. Into the box and off to the vet. Kitties do it all the time. Why couldn’t you?”
“I can’t help it, Sue. Bad memories.”
“Kind of like me and the dentist, I guess. But at least I go, Tiger. I don’t hide under the bed.”
“But you would if you could, right Sue?”
“That’s beside the point, Tiger. Eventually I go.”
So, there was no trip to the vet this week.
We’ll try again.
