Ce n’est pas seulement un lit

After coming back from Louis Catorze’s vet appointment on Tuesday, Cat Daddy and I debated how and when to Gabapentin him.

Cat Daddy: “You could do it in the morning.”

Me: “But that’s when he and I have our morning cuddles. Plus it means my day starts with a stress.”

Him: “How about when you come home?”

Me: “…”

Him: “…”

Me: “Can’t you do it?”

Him: “But then he’ll hate me. He needs to have one of us that he can trust.”

[Silence, tumbleweed, crickets.]

Anyway, I drew the short straw and I’m the bad guy. It’s not fun. But if I do it in the morning, because the little sod has the Post-Steroid Hungries, it seems I’m forgiven quite quickly.

In other news 9,083 sleeping spots aren’t enough, and you simply have to look for one more. Preferably one that isn’t anywhere near as nice as the others.

This is one of those times.

For reasons that we cannot fathom – and, quite frankly, nor do we want to – Catorze decided that, today, he wanted to sleep on the Marks and Spencer bag containing my nieces’ and nephews’ presents.

Cats: why? And, please, don’t bother saying “Because cat”. That excuse just doesn’t wash anymore.

I’m not even going to ask.

  1. Obviously he is trying to make the point that he is PRESENT.

    Katzenworld had a post today (which of course I cannot find to link to) that said that in an area (Lancashire?) of the UKwhere they thought cats were being targeted and killed by sadistic humans, it turns out they were really killed by foxes

    So I guess Sa Maj and the foxes are status quo.

    1. There’s quite some debate about cats and foxes. Most of my friends either know of hundreds of cats who have been killed by foxes, or none. Nobody knows of just a few. Either way, it’s lucky that they run from the little sod.

      1. Don’t worry. I knew it was your editorial policy. I was just pulling your leg.
        Anyway, might you tell Cat Daddy I sympathise with him? Thank you.

  2. I know exactly what you are going through. We are supposed to put ear medication in Floki’s ears but he is very crafty and can read minds. In addition, the mornings and evenings are when he comes around for attention and we don’t want to ruin that for him. So, after more than two weeks, we managed to get a total of four doses in his ears.
