A Conversation with Tiger

“Good morning, Tiger. Don’t look so alarmed. There will be no trip to the vet today”

“Sorry, Sue.”

“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.

Maybe.

  1. Tiger is so cute, I want to hug him! But, you need to go to the doctor for checkups, Tiger. ❀️😻🐈

    • Scamper scamped away at the first sign of the box! πŸ˜„ I have no idea how Tiger knew what was in store for him that morning, but he disappeared after breakfast and no amount of coaxing could get him to come out from under the bed!

  2. When we moved to Hawaii we were going to bring our cat, Chairman Meow. But taking him to the vet, two miles away, he would end up a frothing-at-the-mouth basket case. We couldn’t see him surviving the trip to the airport and then a six hour flight, so we had to leave him behind with my brother-in-law’s family. Some cats just don’t like to travel!

  3. I suppose I might have hidden under the bed if someone was going to put me in a box. Can’t blame him. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Thanks,.Pete. I dont know how he knew.as we hadn’t even gotten the box out yet. Maybe he heard us talking and that was enough to send him into hiding! But once he was under the bed it was all over! 😽😸
