cat talk

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

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

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

his evening dose time varies
we try to catch him unawares

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

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

 he's also very protective of harry

harry who uses his voice very expressively

 where is everyone
 a lot

 we are always in plain view

 when he does this act
 jack reacts 
he wants to protect harry

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

 in fact 
 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


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

 even tho i am writing this on thursday
my fridaycations

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

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

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

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


  1. Jack, you are a handsome rascal.

    By chance of fate you and I are both featuring cats today!

  2. I DO know! And Love this post and pic so wise in the ways of cat

    ALOHA from Honolulu

  3. I neeeeed a cat in my life!
    p.s. you know the morning tea thing that I go to every year (posted last Sunday) every year there is a lady there called Anne who looks so much like you it's crazy! Next year for sure I'm going to take her pic and send it to you :) they do say everyone has someone in the world who is their double, yours lives in Perth Daryl xx

  4. Cats are marvelously crazy beings. :)

  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)

  6. He surely is one handsome fella, Daryl, and so sweet too!

    Yaaaaaaaaay to the Fridaycations!!

    Hope your dentist appointment went well. xo.

  7. harry is a rascal. jack looks a little ... sad?

  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!

  10. Summer Fridays!! When I rethink my self-employment.

    Awww poor Jack. :(
