The Further Trials and Tribulations of Trixie

Greetings, Effurrybody!

Furrst of all, I want to remind you all that today, le quatorze juillet, was - is - purr-ecious Pixie's birthday. I mention this because, as I have said before, it was Pixie who chose Me especially and sent Me to Mummy, when Poor Mummy was left with no kitties at all after sweet Possum joined his sisfur Pixie at the Rainbow Bridge nearly four years ago. So I am eternally grateful to darling Pixie Who Went Before, and always remember her and honour her on Her Birthday.

Now, however, I have a Serious Complaint to make about what Mummy did to Me today, of all days!

I was sitting in My Tunnel, minding My Own Business - as you can see from the pictures below.

As I say, I was simply meditating on the  Thought of my "ineffable effable Effanineffable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name."

And what did Mummy do?
Kitties, She tricked Me!
She produced a handful of My Favourite Crunchy Treats and LURED Me out of my Cosy Nook, and when She had done that, she Kitnapped Me and locked me up in my Kitty Carrier and told Me were were off to visit the Evil V-e-t for my annual Shots!

And as if that wasn't bad enough, kitties, She decided to take Shimshi along too, although his shots aren't due till next month, so as to save time and effort.

Now normally, I settle down quite quickly in my carrier, once the door is shut and I realise it's better to give in with a Good Grace - but Shimshi's presence seriously unsettled Me and We both started rattling the door of Our Prison and trying to get out. And when Mummy tried to pick up the Kitty Carrier, We made ourselves as heavy as We could. In the end, Mummy gave up and decided to take just Me.

Once We got in the taxi, I settled down, as I always do once the car starts moving. But once we got to the Evil Stabby Place, and I saw Dr. Einat preparing THE NEEDLE, I freaked out again and wouldn't let anyone touch Me. And I scratched the v-e-t's assistant Maia and made her hand bleed (once, I scratched her face!). 

So then they put me in that horrid cage which can be made smaller, and they squeezed me inside it and I couldn't move or turn round or anything, and I was afraid they were going to torture Me. But, in the end, the Evil V-e-t just stabbed Me and filled out a form to say I had had my annual shots. She was going to examine my toothies but I wouldn't let her. If anyone had tried, I would soon have shown them just what Purrfect Condition my fangs are in (heheheh).

Oh, and while we were there, I was weighed and Mummy was furry pleased to discover that I have put on almost half a kilo, now that I have got my appetite back. I don't understand why She wants me to get fat, kitties! She, herself, is always complaining about how she has put on weight. So you would think she would understand that I want to retain my lithe, svelte figure!
Well, I shall probably lose that weight again over the next few weeks, because I don't like the new kitty food she got for Us. The shop didn't have any of our usual dry kitty food, so She had to get something else this time. It's called "Happy Cat" - but even though the boys eat it (they don't like it as much as our regular food, but they'll eat just about anything, those greedy mancats), I am furry far from being a Happy Cat and will only eat it because there is no choice. Fortunately, at the weekend, We get Fancy Feast!

So there you have it, Kitties. I think Mummy is out to get Me. What do you think?

ohhhh! Poor kitty! You are good for a whole year before you have to go to the stabby place again.

The Island Cats said...

Well, that stinks. Our mom tricks us like that too. We're glad all went well, though, and now it's over for another year!

Happy Birthday to Pixie!

I am sorry you had to go to the vet. I am curious at to why you need yearly vaccines instead of every 3 years. That is awful.

Deziz World said...

Oh no gawjus, da VET? Ssshhhhh don't say anythin' but Raena's gotta go there herself tomorrow. And she ain't gonna be none to happy either. MOL But to have to go to da VET and then not even get da good foods, OMC Dat's not right, just not right at all. We are glad dat you be doin' good tho and gainin' weight. There's nuffin' wrong wih bein' a bit meaty. Mommy says there's more of us to luv dat way. MOL And what's this 'bout your singular name? There's nuffin' wrong with dat at all. Hope ya'll have a great weekend.

Luv ya'

Good job making your presence known. I sing the song of my people very loudly until in the vet's exam room. I accept my fate and stop after that; however, I'm a good patient.

We're glad to hear you have gained some weight. I make my human go to another store if one doesn't have my favorite dry food. Of course, Fancy Feast is everywhere here!

The J-Cats said...

What?! You mean there is a shot that's good for three years?
Oh, but of course, Mummy thinks we need to have a general check up effurry year...

Kitty Cat Chronicles said...

Glad that vet visit is out of the way and you wont' have to go for another year! Also, thank you for your kind words of comfort on Milton's memorial post today. We truly appreciate it. <3

Aww, Moses hated the vet, too! And he's mad because he has to take medicine to make him stronger!
Thanks for stopping by to give purrs to Moses. We appreciate your kindness!

Seville at Nerissa's Life said...

Yup, out to get you, for sure. Peeps are like that, I believe. Peep #1 is ALWAYS trickin' me. Not once have I ever waltzed into the carrier all on my own without bein' tricked and that, my friends, is for sure. MOUSES!


Katie Isabella said...

I think you're right darling girl;. Mine is out to get ME too and I will have to go get my claws trimmed back smartly before this week is over. xoxoxoxox ALSO I need MY shot too. Sigh. 💗
