cat talk

i was having an email exchange
 with
 about our cats
 and
 how they react to trips to the vet

 it got me thinking
 about
 how our jack reacts to his inhaler treatments
 currently
 they're 2x a day
 til the higher dose version
 which is on order
 arrives

he knows 
he is getting dose in the morning
 usually around the time he gets fed
 but 
as he leery as he is
 of coming too close
 getting picked up
 and
 dosed
 he can't stay out of the kitchen
 because
 he lives for food

his evening dose time varies
we try to catch him unawares

 whats funny
 to us
 is
 that 
after he gets dosed
 he steers clear of us
 for hours

when he does permit us to come near
 he acts
 as
 if
 he's going to get another treatment
which 
by the way
 takes as long
 as 
counting from 1 to 10

 he's also very protective of harry

harry who uses his voice very expressively

lately 
harry
 does
 his
 where is everyone
 cry
 a lot

 we are always in plain view

 when he does this act
 jack reacts 
he wants to protect harry
 from 
whatever
 whoever

 trust me
believe me
were jack 
in
 trouble or pain
 harry
 wouldn't lift a paw
 he's oblivious to jack's needs

 in fact 
when
 jack is being dosed
 harry is very interested in the inhaler
 its as if he's thinking 
what's he got that i don't

thats
 jack
 there 

he loves to lie on that mat
it was a gift from my friend blogger country girl kate
 who bought it for him 
from
 the other hilary over at crazy as a loom



 today
 even tho i am writing this on thursday
 begins 
my fridaycations

 this first one
 will not 
be spent 
doing wonderful things
 or
 even sleeping in 

i am going to the dentist 
a
preventative appointment
 lately
 every thing that happens to me
 ends up being big and expensive 

so 
before this weird thing i noticed
 turns into more than it is now
 i am getting it checked 

i would much rather pay now
 and 
learn its nothing
 than
 ignore it 
and
 well, you know …

  5. Ugg, dentists. I'll be holding your hand thru it.

    When I moved in here, Morgan turned into cat bitch from hell and i bought a sort of cat Valium from the vet for her and so remember the chase and grab and hiss and misery the dosing was, so completely sympathise with you. She's off the Valium now, and still gets into the cat bitch from hell mode, but it's less and less these days. (thank god)

  8. Oh, poor Jack. That 10 seconds probably feels like a lifetime, as he is always worried about getting it. And Harry, as has been said, is no help.
    Hugs to Jack, and a how-de-do to Harry.
    Hugs to you, too.

  9. Your Jack is a handsome orange tabby! Our cat Zelda is an orange tabby too! We just had her fixed and she's milking it for all it's worth!
