It’s one of those days — this morning, we took McDuff to the vet for his pedicure. Called her up yesterday, and made the appointment; 10 o’clock this morning. When I hung up, I think he knew! This morning, he most definitely knew — he didn’t act his normal self at all. But then again, many things were different; both my husband and I were up earlier than usual … at the same time!
Gerry went down to warm up the car, a little bit before McDuff and I got down there. As soon as Gerry went out the door, the cat went into hiding. Not even the rattling sound from his candy bag could lure him out. Oh well, I crawled underneath the table, got a hold of him, and put him in the cage. I don’t know for sure, but I think the actual car ride is what scares him the most. Hard for us to imagine what it must feel like, when your ordinary world consists of a two-bedroom-apartment. It’s a big, scary world out there!
The procedure itself, was swift … we didn’t have to wait at all, now we’re back and it’s all forgotten … until next time! If we don’t do this, his claws will grow into his pad, and then we really can start to talk about PAINFUL.
I don’t know who’s most exhausted … mother or cat?! ☺️
