What a week!  I was so embarrassed I couldn’t even talk about it until now.  Mom said I could put my art up today so let me start with the normal picture.

Ruff Day for Hemigway 2

Mom went to work Thursday morning and Steinbeck and I did our normal things.  We found sun puddles and started napping.  Shortly after that, Mom came in the house again.  I looked at her and wondered why she was home so early.  Then my mental acuteness kicked in.  I knew this was trouble and the trouble was going to involve me!

Mom tried to pick me up off the floor and somehow she managed to fall flat on her face.  I scooted away but Steinbeck stood there and wondered why she was on the floor.  She finally got up and started looking for me in all my favorite hidey spots.  I had her fooled.  Then she asked Steinbeck where I was.  That little squirt ratted me out and led Mom right to where I was hiding!!  Can you believe it??

We finally got to the doctor’s house.  (Yes, I had figured out that’s where we were going.)  Mom had trouble getting me out of the car.  She doesn’t put me in a carrier ‘cuz I weigh 22 pounds and normally I’m really calm.  I was calm this time but I was super slippery.  I turned myself into oil and Mom just couldn’t hold me.  I found my moment to escape and I went under her car.  She was in the parking lot walking all around the car and kneeling in the snow and ice.  I kind of felt sorry for her ‘cuz she’s told me that she has fake knees and it’s hard to kneel.  However, I didn’t feel sorry enough to come out from under the car.  Mom walked into the doctor’s house and told them I was there but I was under her car and wouldn’t come out.  They know me there and Mom said there was a little laughing.  Hmmmmmmmmmm

Next thing I knew, Marcus came out with this big net.  I wondered if he was going to try to catch a fish or a butterfly.  Surprise!  He used it to catch me!!  Do I look like a fish or butterfly??  He picked me up and carried me into the clinic and even though I voiced my opinion, I didn’t try to get loose.

What was my problem?  It’s so embarrassing!  I had dirty pants.  I have long fur and sometimes it gets matted back there ‘cuz I won’t let Mom brush me or trim me there.  She can brush me all over but not there!  So, I was ready for a trim and a little cleaning.  They also checked those nasty anal glands and made sure I didn’t have any infections.  I won’t admit it out loud but I did feel better after they took care of me.

When we got home, I showed Mom what a good kitty I am.  She opened the back door of her car and I calmly walked out.  Then I walked to the gate and waited for her to open it.  I walked through the gate and right up to the back door and waited for her.  No problem at all.  However, I did go hide once we were inside.  I didn’t want to discuss what had happened with Steinbeck and I didn’t want to hear him laughing.

When Mom came home again at night, I was speaking to her again and I even slept with her.  It was such a ruff day but I’m all better and Mom is happy that I’m all clean.  Oh, that Marcus said something about me losing weight.  That wasn’t necessary!

So, here’s my Caturday Art picture for the day.  I hope I didn’t bore you with my antics.

Mom let me out after supper tonight and I thought she was being so nice.  However, she started following me around.  I walked on the deck and she followed me.  I jumped down in the grass and she followed me.  What was she doing???  Next thing I knew, she had picked me up and was carrying me to the gate.  Now, she’ll tell you that’s not an easy thing for her to do.  I’m not exactly made of marshmallows.  Anyway, suddenly I was in the car and she was starting it!  What’s happening?

Oh, this was not cool.  She took me to the doctor lady’s house!!!  Did I say I wanted to go there?  Why, Mom???  I don’t think I’ll speak to you for a few minutes.

As usual, I had to try and get all my floofiness into that little basket.  I even had to get my tail in there!

Mom, it’s sooooooooo humiliating!!!  Why don’t you get in this box and see how you feel?  Then the doctor lady told you that I weigh just a little under 22 pounds.  I didn’t want her to tell you!  Now I’m not speaking to her, either.

What are you doing, doctor lady?  I told you I’m not speaking to you.  Do you want me to tell everyone how much you weigh?

Mom, please don’t let her take me!  I heard her say something about shots.  I also heard you tell her that I should have a “manny” “petty”.  I don’t know what that is.  I know I’m a man cat and I’m you’re pet so I’m hoping it’s something good.  (Readers…….don’t let those humans fool you.  I had my claws all nice and sharp for wrestling with Steinbeck and now they’re gone.  I found out a “manny” “petty” means “goodbye claws”.

I finally got home safe and sound and took a nap.  I heard Mom talking about me having to go back in June for some dental work.  I didn’t like hearing that!  I hope they all forget!

From the Mom:  Hemingway was so good at the vet’s.  He is the most mellow cat around and the doctor said she wishes all her patients were like that.  We will have to have a tooth worked on and possibly extracted.  I’ll take him in early in the morning and then bring him home at night.  It’s the first time he’s had any surgery and of course Mom is worried.  For now, we’re just going to have cuddle time.

I should have known I was in for trouble when Mom got home and put my blanket in my carrier.  Yes, it was my turn to go the doctor lady’s house.  The first thing they did after they let me out of my carrier was weigh me.  I now weigh four pounds and four ounces so I’m still growing.  Everything checked out just fine and I got the last of my kitten shots.  YIPPEEE!!!!  Oh, and Mom had them put something called a chip in me.  I asked her if it was a pita chip ‘cuz I really love those.  I thought if it was a pita chip, they should put it in my mouth ‘cuz that’s the best way to get it in me.  She said she would explain later when I wasn’t so wound up.  Do I have a key on my back???  It was good to get back home and to know that I don’t have to go back there for a long time now.  I’m sure they’re going to miss me!  Oh, and while I was in back with the doctor lady, Mom was out front holding the Clinic Kitty whose name is Puff.  They said I look just like Puff did when he was a baby.
