…the very next day!
This is one of my favourite cartoons. Which brings me to my latest adventure with my cat. For the record, I love my cat and am not trying to get rid of her like the guy in the cartoon.
Although I know Stelle is happy and safe with Mama she doesn’t get the same attention that I give her. Every time I visit now I get pounced on immediately with demands for attention. This cat is very particular and I will admit that I spoiled her rotten with cuddles. She has feline HIV and cancer so I treat every day with her as if it could be her last.
I got Stelle at the “Gattile” (animal shelter) and have only had to put her in the cage once. This cat is so wild that the Vet had to sedate her to examine her. I remember like it was yesterday as I stood there holding a tissue to my bleeding face, Mama pacing back and forth, while telling the Vet to be careful when he opened her cage door. I look back at that day now and laugh. The expletives that came from the Vet’s mouth and the expression on Mama’s face were priceless.
This past weekend I tried to put her in the cage again and she went ballistic. Even Mama tried to help me and still no way. After two attempts I decided to follow my gut (or fear), and leave her be. Watching the video above I realize that there is nothing like a cat’s determination and I didn’t want my clothes and arms to be shredded like that guy’s couch!
For now, not only do I have a part-time husband but also a part-time cat! Stelle is quietly snoozing on my old bed in the city while I am back up here on the hill alone with my Wii. That’s mother nature and that’s life I guess!
