Catfish Missed His Vet Appointment!
So much for the new, pink-flowered pet carrier!
I usually don't post twice in one day, but I had to tell you about our trip to the vet. I had both carriers in the apartment. I called the cats in. I closed the door behind them when they came in. I picked up Tarzan and put him in his carrier. The God-awful squalling started the minute he was inside. Catfish was on alert, but I caught him and put him in his new, top-zipper, pink-flowered carrier. All set to go. Ha.
The Boss was on the front porch. I opened the apartment door and called for him to come and carry one of the cats to my car. I turned around to get Tarzan, who was still doing his Tarzan yell, when I hear the pet door slam. It was Catfish running lightening speed out to the cat fenced-in yard! The mistake I made was NOT zipping closed both zippers on that new carrier! Catfish was out in a flash, and under the porch. I knew he was onto me and wouldn't come out from under there any time soon.
So I ended up taking Tarzan alone. He squawked the entire way, but was good once there. He was a bit further traumatized along the way, when I turned a sharp corner and his pet carrier, sitting in the middle hump of the back seat, turned over.
I have a new appointment for Catfish on Friday morning. A Friday I was going to spend at home, ALONE, relaxing. Yes, this has been a WONDERFUL vacation. At least I have Saturday to look forward to!
