Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Malcolm,
My Fred like your Oscar was such a terror that two vets requested I not return with him. After major surgery requiring two days on an IV at the vets office, he was returned to me within two hours. The staff was terrified of him and the other patients were disturbed. They used to tranquilize him in his carrier just to get him onto the vets table. I could manage him but it seemed to be a matter of honor for the vet to deal with it. Also, I have been told, I could sue for damages if the cat hurt me while in the examining room.
I finally found a vet with a sense of humor and we cared for Fred into old age. He broke hundreds of dollars worth of antique pottery, deliberately kicked an assortment of crystal including a lamp to the floor, left lifelong scars on my arm, but broke my heart when he decided it was time to go. Why am I always attracted to bad boys?
