Gracie here. The casino bus was cancelled because of impending bad weather. Good time to come back to work.
I’ve had a dreadful December. It all started on a Sunday night when the peep took away all the food and said I had to “fast.” I should have known. The portal to hell was out so someone was going to the vet.
Early the next morning, before her Starbucks (when she’s still cranky) she dropped me off at the vet and left. She left me there. By myself. I was not happy and told them so. This was no spa day!
It was a day full of weird stuff. They shaved a patch on my paw then put a needle in. Then I waited. They finally took me in and told me to count backwards from 100. I didn’t make it far.
When I woke up, I was woozy and not feeling great. They left me sleep it off but I didn’t feel good. The peep never came back. I was starting to wonder if I was abandoned.
The next day, while I was in my pity party, the peep came and rescued me. They had a plastic shield all around my face. It was awful. Since I only have one eye, it limited even more what I could see which wasn’t much. Worst of all, I couldn’t reach the food in the dish.
The peep took it off using her opposable thumbs and a few naughty words and I ate. I spent the week sleeping on the window ledge next to her computer. I wanted to comfort her and also check on her browsing history. Needed to make sure she wasn’t cruising cat adoption sites.
They yanked out all my teef except for three. (I have a little lisp now.) Some were broken off at the gum line. Some were crumbling like an old building. The peep wanted to see and stuck her finger in my mouth. I immediately bit it. Got two of my sharp chompers on it. Don’t feel sorry for her. You don’t go putting your hand in any creature’s mouth without consequences.
The tooth fairy brought me catnip toys. Sasha stole one right away and we have no idea where she’s keeping it but occasionally, she comes running through the house with it in her mouth. Gus plays with the pink one (he’s a manly cat so he can wear pink). All the rest are mine!
We are all hunkered down waiting for the cold weather to arrive. We are grateful for a warm house and pray for all the people and pets in the Ukraine who must be freezing.
Have a marvelous weekend and don’t let anyone steal your teef.
