Suzanne’s Plan for yesterday: Blog, email, figure out how to strip hero, take cat to vet at 2:30.
Buttercup’s Plan for yesterday: Sleep, eat, sleep, eat, figure out how to strip a squirrel, pretend to sleep, dart out door at 2:15 and head down driveway with middle finger pointed up at human who thought she would take him to vet.
Plan for today: new appointment, battle re-engaged.
I believe your cat and my parent’s cat are communicating via CAT-ESP. I swear, when I walk through the door, she actually sighs and rolls her eyes. You again? Did you ever corral her?

Oh he was happy to come back inside….you know, LATER!!!:hissyfit:

Good luck, Buttercup! I mean, Good Luck, Suzanne. Really. I did. Honest.

I have a cat – Mackenzie – who is still half feral and trying to round her up for anything is a trial. To give her medicine I have to sneak up on her on the bed and quickly throw a blanket or something over her and struggle to keep her under said blanket while trying to put a pill down her throat. She bit me once when I tried to give her a pill without the blanket.

😆 I like Buttercup’s plan. Well, except the squirrel part. :yuck:
I hate taking my cat to the vet. I always 😥

Eve, I saw that!!! He better be giving one darn amazing critique for that!!:shocked:

Sonja – followed the link :rotfl:
Suzanne – for that much money he’d better be giving a damn dissertation!:whip:

lol, I wouldn’t expect anything less from Buttercup.
On August 16, 2005 at 10:05 am
OMG Suzanne! THIS is exactly why I do not own cats. The idea of an animal that walks on all fours, yet is smarter than I am scares the bejeezus out of me!
On August 16, 2005 at 10:31 am
Oh Buttercup, haven’t you learned that in the end you do not get away with it – the appointment comes sooner or later!! Just get it over with and then go squirrel hunting or whatever fancies your heart.:wink:

I have been wrangling Annaof’s cats this week. For a small price I can come over and cat wrangle for you. It is my special power MWAhahahahahahaha

That’s why I have dogs. When it’s time to go to the vet, if necessary, I just lure them into the truck with bologna.

Ah, a crafty kitty. That’s why I love cats.

Too funny! Buttercup has a mind of his own! :hyper:
On August 16, 2005 at 11:32 am
OOOH a kitty that can flip the bird!!! Where can I get one :rotfl:
On August 16, 2005 at 11:40 am
Eve’s comment about administering medicine to her cat cracked me up. It reminded me of the time I had to corner mine in the laundry room. She growled, hissed, and hid behind the washer, but she still got her damn pill. And then quickly hocked it up. :talktothehand:
On August 16, 2005 at 11:51 am
LOL! Good luck and may the force be with you! 😀
On August 16, 2005 at 12:04 pm
I hate it when they hack the pill back up. I have this really funny piece about giving a pill to a cat – now if I can only find it then I would send it to Suzanne!
On August 16, 2005 at 12:15 pm
I blogged about my dog hiding her pills in her cheek and spitting them out later today!
On August 16, 2005 at 12:19 pm
Okay, I just read something that fits right in here – Old Farmer’s Advice: Don’t corner anything that is meaner than you.
On August 16, 2005 at 1:09 pm
Cats are smart! I love them! 🙂
On August 16, 2005 at 2:16 pm
Jill has her bear and you have your cat. I’d say the score is Animals 5000, Humans 2. 😀
On August 16, 2005 at 2:45 pm
This is why I don’t have a cat either. OK–I’m allergic too but that’s beside the point. I get enough attitude from everyone else, don’t need it from a pet! (An animal that can flip a bird is just not something I’m willing to deal with!)
Good luck with that though! :wave:
On August 16, 2005 at 2:48 pm
OK–followed some of the links a little late. Dogs too, huh? We were just about to get one of those…maybe we’ll wait a bit. I’ve been enjoying the past 7 years of no vet trips anyway.
So how’s the progress with the hero? What’s he wearin’ now? :wigglebrow:

What a funny post. Your kitty definitely has a mind of her own.

Good luck, Suzanne!!!! (You’re gonna need it….) :rotfl:

That’s what you get when you call a Tom cat Buttercup :whip:
On August 16, 2005 at 3:59 pm
Yes, I think being named after a Powerpuff Girl has had a negative impact on his attitude!
On August 16, 2005 at 4:06 pm
Totally agree with Lynn. The problem with cats is they just don’t fall for human tricks like dogs. I can even have a pretend treat in my hand and our idiot, er, rodent, er dog, will do my bidding.
On August 16, 2005 at 6:06 pm
I’ve been needing to take my kitten to the vet for a month now to have him fixed, but I just look at him and frown cause I hate doing it. Even if I know its better in the long run. So I keep putting it off.
On August 16, 2005 at 6:45 pm
Well my little Devlin is getting a snip/snip (as my mother calls it) next month and I can’t wait – I do not want a cat spraying in the house.
On August 16, 2005 at 7:01 pm
Gotta love Buttercup! He sure has a mind of his own… (he is a HE isn’t he???)
On August 16, 2005 at 7:22 pm
Yes, Buttercup is a boy (despite his pansy name, LOL!).
On August 16, 2005 at 7:27 pm
LOL Suzanne!! You’re not suppose to leave the door open!:lol:

As a person who takes her pets to the vet again and again and AGAIN… I really enjoyed this post. Love the picture too. Buttercup’s a doll!

LOL – dang it must be nice to get so much sleep. 🙂
Thx for the pic.
On August 16, 2005 at 9:17 pm
Yep, that’s one of the reasons I have no pet at the moment. I don’t think I could put up with having to fight some- thing/one else.
You sure do seem to be having fun with your menagerie, Suzanne.:wigglebrow:
