The Cat Chronicles

The black flies just hatched and they are providing the kitten with endless gymnastic entertainment. She chases them everywhere, climbing up the walls and leaping at the curtains, but they always get away.

I took her to the vet yesterday for her last in a series of three visits, and spent another $50. It's like taking your car in for a $20 oil change and spending $100 on all the other "scheduled maintenance" that they can come up with. I paid $30 to have them look at a cat's turd and tell me she doesn't have worms! I don't need that again. I clean the litterbox and I will know if her fecal matter changes.

And then there's the dentist. Every time I go in there they want to replace my wiper blades or something. Who ever heard of getting an xray every 6 months??? I don't need that. So I decline their services, and they get huffy about it. But I'm the customer, I'm paying, and if they want me to keep coming back they can provide me with the services that I am willing to pay for.

Damn it.

So all day long I've been visualizing that clot in Cheney's leg breaking loose and floating into his head. Not very nice of me, I know. Can't help it.
