Today I need to find a place where I can disappear all day long so mom can't find me. But I also worry what will happen tomorrow? I can't stay disappeared in the house 24/7. And humans cheat when they REALLY need to find you. They shut doors so you have less places to escape TO and get out flashlights so they can see better and use things such as squirt bottles to flush us out of places they can't reach. Either that or they play this game of pretending to be unaware of you, then suddenly swooping down on you right when you think you're safe napping in a place where you're visible.
Mom is plotting some kind of new torture for me. I overheard her telling somebody on the phone that today she's going to take me to do something to my right foot to try to help my toes uncurl. I told her I'm ok the way I am now, I don't need anymore help. I get around ok with my right leg and foot the way it is now. But Mom says we need to get my leg and foot back as close to normal as possible for my own good.
In a futile attempt to ease my worry, Mom even told me that a splint and bandage on my foot will make walking more comfortable for me because it will stop me stepping on the top of my toes everytime I try to use my right foot. She also told me that there's a big collar that goes around a cat's neck that prevents the cat from being able to mess with the splint and bandage but that if I'm cooperative and don't mess with my splint or bandage and don't try to take it off, I won't have to wear any collar at all. I'm not sure that I believe these things she's telling me, although I must grudgingly confess she was sort of right about physical therapy. I do have a lot more fun now that I'm able to get around.
You kitties reading this know how it is whenever we go to see a person called a vet, it usually ends up with us being handled in ways we don't want to be handled and in having tortures done to us while the vet tries to tell us its for our own good. You also know that no matter how had we struggle or how fierce we act, the vet will win out in the end.

Now, Lucy, you know your Mom has your best interests at heart. So do your best to tolerate this latest torture. But do feel free to hiss at the vet.
Lucy, I know how yukky the vet can be. I had to go a few times. It's true your mom just cares for you and wants to help you in anyway she can. Trust mommy she loves you. I will continue to keep you in my kitty prayers. It seems like your doing a little better all the time, keep up the great work, you'll get there I promise. Remember I told ya us kitty's overcome everything.
OMC good luck sweet kitty that all sounds kinda scary but I know your mom loves you and she is only doing what she feels is best for you, sometimes I wish they didn't think they know it all
oh you've done so wonderfur so far Lucy Liu! just try to be patient Sweetie and put up with it for a while. you'll feel so much better. big hugs Anna
Believe me, I didn't make it easy for Mom to catch me to put me in the carrier either. Even after closing doors to the bedrooms etc, she had to chase me around the house before I screwed up and hid under the wrong chair (the way to go in under it is also the only way out!)
The good news was that it turned out I don't have to wear a splint. The bad news is that I have to do a different kind of physical therapy.
