A Box by Any Other Name

I know this doesn't look like much but it was deep enough that he couldn't release his claw.
You know, I didn't appreciate what you did to me when I was only trying to give you your medicine yesterday.

That is not so bad!

Well, yes it is.
No, I could do much worse.

I’m glad you didn’t.

I didn’t because I do actually need you around and healthy.

You do?
Yes. Who would feed me? Who would empty my chamberpot?

Your chamberpot?


Sure.  If that makes you a happy cat.

Oh, yes, ecstatic.  I'm an ecstatic cat now.

And speaking of the litter...chamberpot, you have not used it in quite some time.

You are checking?

Yes, I am.


Because you have been sick.  This is the second bout of problems.

Sigh.  I’m fine.

No, you are not.  You have had medicines, but now you are not eating, nor using the

I just don’t feel like it.

Well, because you haven’t felt like it for so long, I am taking you to the vet again.

No, that doesn’t work for me.


No, I can’t.

You can’t or won’t?

I don’t want to, and I’m busy today.  I can’t.

You are busy?  What are you doing?

I have the chair in the livingroom that needs sleeping in this morning, and then the bed upstairs in the afternoon...oh, and Pippi is waiting for me to rub up against her.  I think I heard a cricket in the basement that needs attending to...AND that woodpecker may come back to entertain me.

Those things are going to have to wait. You are going to the vet.  I just called them, and they want to see you right away.

Ok. Where are the keys? I’ll drive.

Ok, get in the Cat Carrier.


What then? What would you like me to call it so you would just get in?

Feline, wait...Cat Castle...or Kitty Cabin - Cat Cabin?  No, Fine Feline Coffer...ew, no, that sounds like a vault or something...

I'm going to call it a cat coffin in a minute...get in!

Ok. I'm getting. Sshhheeesh.
Cat House will do.

No, it won't. We'll go with Cat Castle.


  1. I hope you are feeling better Noah. Being sick is no fun.

  2. I will definitely relay your message to Noah! He will hopefully reply later today. He spent the day and night at the animal hospital. They have no idea what is wrong, but we are hoping he will get over whatever it is that is making his tummy upset.

    1. X-rays this morning... but it may be the meds he's been taking for his "badder inflection".
