Cat Cage Debacle
The domestic cats in our house have to have their injections as they are having a holiday at a cattery, lucky them, bet they are looking forward to it, I know I am.
We have one cat carrier and will need another so instead of borrowing one as we have done before, realising that we will need to borrow more than once a year and feel rude asking all the time, Michael decided to buy another.
On to City Farmers, returning triumphant with a
I look at it, look at him again as I can’t believe my eyes, and very calmly state that the carrier must be for a kitten or a hamster as it is so small.
‘She’ll be right’, he says ‘no worries’!
So figuring he was going to try to squeeze said smallest cat into small hole and that will be no issue.
I come home on Thursday and there he is trying desperately to get the large cat through the small hole,
Body doesn’t! (no shite Sherlock)
So then he tries to dismantle said carrier removing top half from bottom half.
Guess what despite their being flappy things on the side you can’t actually lift the top off.
I slink away as he gets more and more frustrated, the air surrounding him is turning an electric blue and by the way it’s my fault, just in case you thought it was the persons fault who actually bought the carrier. Or perhaps it’s City farmers fault for selling small carriers, even though the label states small carrier.
I suggested that he takes the cats one at a time using the one cat carrier we already have.
No such luck determined he is and produces a sports bag!
Then I spy him trying to get the cat into the sports bag and zip it up at the same time as you can imagine the cat is rather frantic at this stage after being shoved into a space she won’t fit and now into a space that is dark and zips up.
So he flings the bag to the side, grabs the one and only cat carrier including cat and marches off to the vet with steam pouring out of his ears.
Returns and repeats the same cycle again with the other cat (Molly Mole Pants)
He has calmed down a bit when he got home and states that the vet says the cats are fat and need to go on a diet.
This I will address shortly as that is the most ridiculous thing to monitor, any suggestions?
I start laughing and said, ‘Michael what do you think they would have said to you had you been successful in producing a cat in a zipped up sports bag.’
‘They would have called the RSPCA and taken the cat off you’. I didn’t add you fool but so wanted to.
Apparently he disagrees with me a shrugging of the shoulders in response and a grin from ear to ear, so maybe he has seen the errors of his ways.
Now let it be said if he had listened to me in the first place and bought a bigger carrier we would have two appropriate sized carriers but what do I know?
Cats on a diet
How hard is it please to put a cat on a diet when they roam and probably eat every other man and his dogs food, ridiculousness gone wrong. It’s all I’m saying.
As a side note you may have noticed how we love to give each other shite, bit of a cat and mouse game, well!
Remember how Michaels been sick he says to me the other night
That since him and a few friends have the same thing he can only think that they could have contacted the virus at the Giants as that is the only place event that we all attended over that weekend.
I said that maybe it was a terrorism plot and some sort of terrorist plan for the future.
That got him thinking for just the briefest of moments, my job was done as he was momentarily frozen, his thought bubble rotating inside his head. It’s okay though as he’ll get me back.
