reform school pussies

siegfried and roy have kindly agreed to come over tomorrow with some of their big pussy friends to help me get harriot ' the claw' brown to the vet for her vaccinations.

maybe roy should wait in the limo.

i can't adopt ' tawdry' and ' the lady tanquray' until my ill-natured crotchity senior cats are up to date on their shots.

today brown climbed up the basement door to the ceiling when i was trying to put her in the cat carrier. limber little thing for a 15 year old psycho bitch from hell. i gave up and managed to get sylvia and brown to the vet seperately while brown smuggly sat on the couch taunting me, i tell you, as i brought each cat home after her nanosecond appointment.

the very nice irish vet called sylvia a ' very grand older lady' in his delightful brogue even though she squirmed around like a siamese snake, making it nearly impossible to give her the shots. apparently for her age she's in excellent health. alice screamed at me all the way to and all the way home from the vet. she has a very slight heart murmur which may just have been the result of her dramatic preformance( over acting if you ask me) in HAL on the way there. something to keep an eye on but not yet cause for alarm given her age and it's lack of severity.

last time i took brown for shots the vet called her, on first sight, ' mental' because all calicos ' have a screw loose'. fucking bitch!- you're talking about my chillens!!! the time before that miss mental managed to dig her claws into the hard plastic of the carrier and wouldn't come out even after we shook it ,rather violently, upside down. the vet told me he certainly wasn't about to even touch her . i had to stuff my arm in the carrier, brown sunk her claws into my fore arm and i removed her that way.

maybe a whip and a chair will be required...

GET THOSE PUSSIES AWAY FROM BROWN!!!! but the tigers can stay....


Have you tried the scruff trick? (If she lets you get close enough).

It took 3 people to get Tippy in his carrier to go home. Last time, I got a nice gash on my shoulder and arm.

Peets, on the other hand, once you bring out her carrier and set it down, will just WALK into it out of her own accord. Very, very strange.

she seems to retract her scruff( there's not much of it) when i come near. she may be a little crazy but she's always been very smart- she's the one who can open doors. it's hard to get close to a whirling tasmanian devil with sharp knives located every millimeter.

the rest were a lot better about traveling when persia was alive as long as she came along. her and sylvia used to go in the same carrier. also the older the get the less receptive they are to being moved about. it's just harder fro them to be away from their territory wheere they feel safe. the woman i am getting the torties from is over 70 and she manages to get absolute ferals into carriers-i'm in awe. but i suppose because theyre my own cats i am more conflicted about upsetting them particularly since sylvia and brown are still depressed about persia's passing.

btw...you know that there are vets that do housecalls, right?

yes, but it will still require removing miss thing from the ceiling with a full body teflon suit on or encased in chain mail and a knights armour....maybe a kitty taser has been invented?cats riot all the time.
i did manage to move her to this apartment so i guess i'll survive and come through somehow..luckily saint e's is right around the corner from the vet...

My calico girl was very sweet. I really miss her. She used to talk a lot; sometimes it sounded like she was saying "baloney," and "I don't know." It was adorable.

all my calicos have been chatter boxes- the calicos with the seperated distinct patterns more so. in fact alice is the only cat i have now who is not a calico/tortie variation and even she always barks hello at me every morning. .

this one in the picture - brown- yammers away at me constantly and often yowls alone in the kitchen. my dear departed Co( in the picture with the tuxedo cat ) and i ' murphed' and trilled at each other and always seemed to be saying ' huh?" as in ' what are you on about?". when she was older and blind when she couldn't find me she'd call for me, i'd respond and she'd come to me.

vets see me coming with calicos and theyre always- ohh here comes a little bitch but i'm really found of them and find if you are there's they are the sweetest and smartest cats. of course this is because theyre all females....

I've never had one bitchy calico. I wasn't aware that they were even known for bitchy temperament until your post.

it's referred to as ' tortie-tude'( tortoise shell and calico temperment that is)and i see it as just that they're opinionated and voice it. my calicos have always been sweet as pie to me but that's because i respect their boundaries.they tend to be difficult with vets and people they do not know and trust. ive found them to be devoted and smart. i just love calicos. all but one of my cats is a calico type.

'tortie tude' AWW! That's so cute. :D

LOL. I can envision every single catty thing you mentioned. Our newbie, (Delilah Persia) is still plotting our demise under the bed. I am sure that while we sleep she is awake ad wandering. Trying to steal our very last breath. ;-P

oh they do come around but you know you have to have patience. the 2 cuties i'm adopting are near feral so immediate lapcathood is out of the question-apparently they stalk their foster mom and stare at her from the corners of whatever room she's in.at least theyre interested in humans. i saw one cat at one of the rescue houses who was going to be put back into the feral colony because it's in abject fear of humans and shows no signs of being receptive to domestication.it glared at me from a small kitty condo the entire time i was there and i was warned not to put any body part near the opening.

basically theyre assessing you and how to most effectively brainwash you into complete feline servitude...
