Leo , "Some of you may have already heard my story. You may want to have a little cat nap as I retell it , if that is the case. For those who don't know my story , here is my story. I hope it will allow you to understand why I become Big Fangs at the vet's.
You see, I was found on someone's front porch one unusually cold and brutal winter about four years ago. I say brutal because we don't have lasting snow in Vancouver and that winter we did. For weeks on end.There was snow and cold. I had nowhere to go to get away from the elements. I was a cat without a home. Not a feral cat , just a cat without a home.I don't remember ever having a home actually. I've never had my own people until now. I was an outdoor cat who belonged to no one and who was fed by numerous kind souls who took pity on me but no one ever took me home. I'm a big guy and maybe they felt I would take up too much room in their little homes but I guess I'll never know the reason for sure. I lived like this for over ten years.Until I was found frozen to that retired couple's front porch when they came back from holiday. They took me for dead and brought me to the rescue place. Because they couldn't bury me.The ground was frozen for miles down and the shovel wouldn't dig deep enough. They thought the rescue group might know what to do with my body. But I was alive."
Now , I have to tell you about yesterday's vet visit and here's my confession. Big Fangs showed up in a big way yesterday. He filled the vet's entire examining room until there was almost no more room for the vet himself ! Big Fangs grew and grew until he could touch the ceiling and he wouldn't let the vet anywhere near him. When LP tried to show the vet the lump and the vet moved closer to study and examine it , Big Fangs roared his Big Fangs roar. He hissed his Big Fangs hiss, he roared and hissed so much the vet cowered in a corner shaking with fear and no doubt fearing for his very life!That vet had no choice but to let Big Fangs win.The vet would not even come close enough to touch me. And the vet said he could only examine me properly if I was sedated. LP said, No.Not this time. She said she would keep an eye on the lump and if it changes she will bring me back to the vet's in the hope that Big Fangs is better behaved."
Leo , " I hope you have not lost respect for me for scaring the vet. I'll try to be more co-operative next time. I'll let you know how it goes. But for now, I need to catch up on some zzzzzzzz.Yesterday's strategic plan worked beautifully but I am all tuckered out. It's good and wonderful to be home again."
Have a Terrific Tuesday.
See you soon.
