I have read several diaries of my friends who are terrified of the vet visit. Tigger even gave voice in song to his fears...
BOYS! Man up already!
My vet is terrified to see my large and in charge self come thru their door!
I spray pee and poop!
I cant claw because I was declawed, but I can slap with my huge calloused old mitts!
Thermometers? I have slapped three away to see them break on the floor!
Got one in my 'back door'? Get ready for poop projectiles!
Shots? I let them get close then I BITE!
Liquid medicines? I DARE you to put your hand near my mouth again!
Got the medicine in did you? OOPS..flojectile vomiting! Oh yes, did I mention I like to bite?
They don heavy gloves and come bearing treats to try to calm me with!
I do not give in! I bare my 11 year old fangs and show them the mighty Tiger I am!
Now slap yourselves in the face and be Real Man Cats!
Now I am off to nap, us old furts need our rest.

My Beloved Baci
I have not held your tiny paw in mine.
I have the memories to last a lifetime tho. I hold them close instead.
I thought I would share one of our adventures from our Honeymoon in Ireland this past March.
You know I love adventure, it is the redhead thing, mol, and you told me you would go hot air ballooning with me if we could find one that would take us to Newgrange, a Stone Age Passage Tomb built about 3200 BC we saw on the telly one night.
We drove around till we saw a sign for hot air balloon rides.
Up the winding drive we went. Parked, got out and walked some more, came around a bend and there it was. A hot air balloon!
I will never forget the look on your sweet face!
The signage read
" Mangey Mykonos' Flights of Fancy"
I was not sure if it was the name or the fact the balloon was black with a giant Jolly Roger on the side.
You grabbed my arm and said, " Redd my hunk o mancat, I swear if the pilot has an eye patch, missing a limb or has a parrot, we are OUT of here."
About that time the pilot came out of his little cottage. A big grey Tom.
Ah I say to my wife, he has both eyes, see, all his original limbs and no bird. Just a few scars.
Baci can kick hard for a little thing..mol..
He came over and said in his gravelly voice ' Names Mangey Mykonos, but you can call me Mick. What can I do fer you, a ride? Newlyweds too. Good. Climb on board and let me get er ready."
We climbed in that basket, held each other close. Mick puttered around muttering and getting the ropes and bags ready, lit the fire, jumped out to make an adjustment, when the wind caught us and up we went!
I looked over the side and Mick was waving his arms and yelling something but balloon was going, the fire was lit and I told you, hey, why not?
You grabbed on and said Yes, lets go Redd.
So we flew our flight of fancy for an hour. Managed to come down in one piece just a mile or so from the site we wanted to visit. Mangey Mykonos caught up with us.
He was a good sport, took the tour with us, told us a few tales of his own, then before the sun set, flew us back.
I think he deserved that case of Single Malt.
I love you Baci.
Your furever husband

Has it been 6 months already? Seems like yesterday I had purrposed and you made me the happiest Mancat alive by saying YES!
Then our whirlwind courtship and our wonderful Italian wedding in Venice on the yacht with all of our Catster friends and our families there with us to celebrate our new journey as man and wife.
Oh the time we had. I fainted Friday night. I did. I was just overwhelmed. You were going to become Mrs. Redd Catt.
Oh and you in your red satin wedding dress and that exotic Hawaiin flower bouquet your dear friend Abbey made for you to carry.
You are so tiny and you blushed. I fell in love all over then.
I took your tiny tembling paw in my big mitt. I kissed it.
I vowed to you then
My beloved Baci
I give to you my heart
as it beats only for you
I give to you my life
as I live it only for you
our souls are entertwined, are one furever
our hearts beat together, are one furever
You are my heartsworn and soulmate
As one, we are furever in love.
Then the crazy and fun filled evening began.
Your bouquet toss, I believe a man cat caught it first..mol..then I removed your little red garter and tossed it and who caught it? Why that lobster that escaped dinner the night before and we pardoned him and made him a guest of honor!
He clacked off waving your garter over his head, and right into the pool of pink champagne. We both purred he would find his true love and live happily ever after.
We danced and danced.
Our honeymoon in the Greek isles..Then our wonderful trips we have taken since then, together, as man and wife.
Now you make this one alone, without me.
But I am there and always will be as you are my life, Baci, my wife and will be forever.
I love you my beautiful redheaded gal cat. My Angel now. We will be together again and we will dance all eternity.
I promise to take good care of our two boyz.
Your loving furhusband.

My lovely wife, Baci, has meowed about all the April Fools days she has seen.
Mine total 11 so far. The best one is this one, as it is our first April 1st together as husband and wife. No fooling, our love is forever!
A tail to share today.
Hmmm..gonna have to go back aways to my youth. Living in town, actually this happened around the first week of April, 7 years ago... Close enough...
We had a huge old tree in our backyard in town. Had low hanging branches..which was good as I am declawed. I could just run up the step ladder Dad had for me to assist in my tree climbing. I would lay on the lowest branches and when Mummy would walk by I would grab her hair..mol..
The time was late evening. The sun had set. I was watching Mummy do some packing. She left the kitchen door open which led into the back yard so I could go out and she could keep an eye on me.
It was full dark and Mummy was ready for me to come in now.
She came out back looking for me. The light on the porch had burned out, but a moon was up, so she had a bit of ambient light to see by. She called me and went to the branch I liked to lay on. The tree had lush leaves and was a perfect hiding place.
She peered up into the branches whispering RC? You up there?
She stood, waiting, then she felt a paw in her hair..Then another..she laughed..RC, you are so silly..hey, your pulling my hair..OUCH! Redd!
She laughed again...
I sat in the garage doorway, laughing with her..she looked over and saw me..hey, she said...**a double take**....wait..RC! If you are there, and not up in the tree, who is pulling my hair?
I meowed, you really do not want to know Mummy..
She looked up into the comical face of a huge racoon!
And if any of you know Mummy by now, you know she is terrified of rabies.
So she screamed..Loud...and the racoon just held on...I swear he was grinning..he then went for what I think he wanted all along, her shiny hair clip...Mummy, screeched, stumbled backward, lost her footing, along with quite a bit of hair and the hair clip, and fell.
Mr Racoon decided to make a hasty exit..yes, with her hair clip in his paw..
I went back inside and waited for my dinner.
Mummy came in muttering about rabies, masked bandits, and cats who leave their parents to fend for themselves..
I do miss my tree...
Now off to nap..
