If for no other reason, mom is celebrating Cinco de Mayo because she finally got a clue. Yes Kitties and Woofies..she hauled me off to the v-e-t for a manicure and pedicure! I had been scratching the carpet, the bed, anything I got my claws on. Mom had the hammer come down and bonk her on the head and realized it had been a long time since my nails were cut. I won't let her do it so she took me in. I have not offered to claw anything since. Mom's clue: "Let them grow too long and when they stick as I walk..I am reminded to claw!
While I was there, one of the two hospital cats that live there got into my carrier. Cliff is a beautiful Maine Coon. He filled my carrier up. He was enjoying being there. BUT *I* was a hissing virago when I saw him in it as I was there to be deposited myself. Cliff was not impressed with my display and had to be picked up and put on the floor. My hissing knew no end when I was put in! Cliff smells! Mom took the fleecy "floor" out when we got home to wash away the Cliff smells.
