Looking at our cat Jimmy D, you’d never guess he can intimidate an entire animal clinic’s full of grown humans. His sweet countenance is matched by a placid nature. But only at home.
I recently had to drop the cat off at the vet’s. I usually make an appointment and am with him every minute. It couldn’t be helped this time. As much as I hated to do it, he had to be dropped off and left. Due to prior experience, his carrying cage comes with bright orange stickers that say “WILL BITE”. Not might bite, could bite, or is thinking about biting. Will Bite. I suppose they’re busy printing up additional stickers for him that say “WILL SCRATCH”, “WILL FOAM AT THE MOUTH” and “WILL HISS AND GROWL ALL DAY”.
All I can say is, you know its bad when a room full of technicians and vets, who work on wild and feral cats quite frequently, refuse to even remove ours from his cage. They examined him as best they could by peering through his carrier door and deducing his weight. When they called for me to go get him, they sounded as if they really wanted peace restored to their animal kingdom. Good thing his health is good overall.
