The last time I saw V-Lady, Mom was concerned ‘cause I was giving her such a hard time with my eating. (I didn’t want the kibble anymore and I wasn’t finishing my canned food either.) V-Lady thought she found a heart murmur so I had to go back on Saturday ‘cause she wanted the sonographer lady to do a sonogram and echocardiogram.
Mom rushed around really early that morning. Colette made herself small so Mom wouldn’t find her. Colette already knows it’s not a good sign when Mom does that. It usually means she’s going to see Dr. L. Well, that didn’t concern me.
I walked into the bathroom to complain to Mom about the food service. It stunk! I mean it really stunk between Friday night and Saturday morning. There was no food after ten o’clock and the water fountain was dry. I mean really dry! It wasn’t plugged in and there wasn’t a drop of water! Colette was complaining too.
You know what Mom did? She scooped me up and put me in the carry bag! Locked up for voicing my opinion? Was this going to be like the time I got put in the doggy cage? Yeow!
Anyway, it was still chilly in the morning so we took a taxi. I complained all the way there and the taxi driver laughed. He laughed! He told us he has his own kitties. He’s had them for years.
The sonographer lady was really nice but she put all this stuff on me. At least it was over really quickly. Mom didn’t even get a chance to come into the room with me.
When the sonographer lady brought me back to Mom she told Mom what a sweet girl I am (and how it showed how well-cared for I am). You could have fooled me! Humans are so dumb. Didn’t the sonographer lady see I was starving? I kept telling her I would appreciate it if she could slip me some kibble since obviously someone had messed up big time. (I didn’t name names.) She laughed.
Then we had to wait forever until V-Lady came and talked to Mom. But we have good news! There’s nothing new going on with my intestines and I don’t have a heart murmur. Yay!
I was bored with the food. I kept telling them—why didn’t they want to listen?
Mom got me some new kibble and it really tastes good. And she got some new canned prescription food that she gave me to try even before I saw V-Lady. The first couple of times it tasted good so I ate it. Then I got tired of it. V-lady says I’m not so hungry anymore because my kidneys haven’t been so good. (At least the blood-work they did a week ago showed they haven’t gotten any worse since August.) Mom asked V-Lady if I could take the same pill that makes Colette so hungry (Mirtazapine). V-lady thought it was a good idea.
I complained all the way home on the bus too. And some nasty man wanted Mom to take my carrier off the seat I was on. I heard Mom say to him that I was inside; it wasn’t just a bag. She asked him if he would say the same thing if I was a small child. He looked really mad but he didn’t say anything else.
What would your Mom’s have done? There’s really not enough room between the seats to hold the bag in her lap. The times Mom has gotten up and left the carrier on the seat people get upset about that too. They think she’s standing there and putting her bag on a seat. They’re really happy, though, when she gets up and puts the bag on her shoulder. She says she’s not happy about that. Colette and I are too heavy to stand for that long with us on her shoulder and people keep banging into us ‘cause they think it’s just a bag.
When we got home I walked out of the bag cool as a cucumber and I gave Mom a dressing down. What was she thinking? I hadn’t eaten for all that time and now it was after lunch time. I should have already had three meals in the time she hadn’t fed me. I got my food.
I also got a really yucky pill to take. An hour later I got really hungry. Colette got the same pill and she got really hungry too.
Mom fed us each only about 4 bowls of food before she left the house. How dare she? She left the house for the whole evening and she didn’t feed us. The food service stinks!

We are so sorry that you have such problems with the hired help. It's bad enough when we can't get them to turn on the sink faucet or open the door for us when we want, but not to feed you AT ALL - this is totally unacceptable! I think you may have grounds for a civil suit. The Tabbies would know...
Sounds like you need new food service! Glad you don't have a heart murmur.
Stay well Samsara. Hope your food service woman improves what she is supposed to be doing ; )
Once in a while I need to remind meowmy that there is a bowl bottom visible...so I feel fur you!
Glad to know that you are fine...at least stable!
Purrs for continuance of your health in a stable manner.

You know what? Food service is improving but, let me tell you, this stuff ain't filet mignon. Send new master chef, purrlease!
Glad you heart is doing okay.
I must say that I understand your concern with
the hired help. Don't they understand that variety
is the spice of life? Same old food is boooorrrrring....
Hi Samsara Bürzel. Glad that your heart does not murmur. That is so rude of that man not to want your carrier bag on the seat. Your Mom should just keep doing what she's doing. Maybe stand and have your bag on the seat, so that she only takes up one seat? And kindly explain to rude people that it's not just a bag. New food is fun. Can you eat more wet and less dry food? You've probably already heard all the arguments for wet. And I think with kidney disease you have to be careful to eat only certain kinds of cat food.
Purrs n hugs.
I was wondering, Samsara, why did they take you to the vet on Caturday? Caturday is weekend where everypurr should rest. Vet places should not be open on Caturday and Sunningday.
