Whiney kitteh

Mencken is wandering around the iceberg going "Wah! wah! wah!".

Seems he's sorta upset. He doesn't feel good. He spent all day at the kitteh doctah, got poked and prodded and put under anesthesia, and now he's a bit groggy and he doesn't like that at all.

Reminds me of when I made the mistake, once, of getting kitteh tranquilizers for a pair of my kittehs when I was moving 1200 miles. I gave them the tranqs as instructed by the vet, and instead of "meow meow meow", instead they went "Merrrrrrroooooww! Merrrrrrrowwwww!" in dopey slow-mo. Kittehs are not natural drug fiends, apparently, unless the drug is catnip. And Mencken is reminding me of that, quite loudly.

UPDATE 9:00PM: Mencken has decided that my lap is the proper place to recover so he is in my lap purring or snoring. Thing is, he is a *big* cat so one arm is occupied keeping him from sliding off my lap and I am typing this one-handed. And his tail is dangling off the other side of my lap and TMF keeps whacking it with his paw, at which point the tail goes into overdrive and TMF tries to chase it and I have to shoo TMF away with the keyboard hand. Slow blogging this evening!

  1. I love your animal care commentary.

    So sorry it took this busy girl until now to catch up on the fascinating "kitteh Dr." reporting.

    I did exactly the same when my pups came back all drowsed out. It's good for the soul to protect and care fo our babies.
