what do you mean, no food?

Last week, all (but one) of The Kittehs had teeth cleanings scheduled. Unfortunately, they couldn’t all be done on the same day, so it was back & forth, back & forth. And almost every night—four total—I had to pick up all of the food & water at 8pm. (Because if one of them can’t have any, then none of them can have any, y’know? :burger: )

So basically, my week went something like this:

Starting at 8p.m…

Around 9pm…

All. Night. Long.

I go to bed & try to sleep, but…

First thing the next morning, after an entire night of apologizing & promising The Kittehs they could have food just as soon as the one going to the vet was taken care of…

And finally, after once again eating their fill…

Which is why I pretty much spent the weekend like this…

(I don’t know what The Kittehs did, but at least they did it with clean teeth! :peace: )

    Glad to hear you got through that week. Poor kittehs.

      Poor kittehs? Poor me! :aargh:

      LOL Just kidding. Yes, it was quite rough & traumatizing for them. Thankfully, they’re done now—hopefully for a good, long while. :hammock:

    I am glad they got through it ok. (And without a mutiny too)

      Well, Harley fought the good fight to not go in the carrier on Friday, but that’s because he had to go thru all of that on Monday—only to be sent home because the vet’s office had screwed up the scheduling. (Yes, I still maintain it was their mistake, not mine. Trust me, I don’t mess up on these things; it’s way too traumatic to mess up. :aargh: )

      But they did great & are all recovered, thank goodness. And I think I might almost be caught up on my own lack of sleep. Almost. :shark:

      So glad you enjoyed the funnies! :hulagirl: And you are so right about life with multiple kittehs…& always a ringleader…& going without food for **five whole minutes!!!**…& no one believing half of what they do. :lolol:

      We got a bit of a storm here, too, but not nearly as bad as we’d expected. (Knock on wood!) We attend down the hatches & everything, & frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if we get hit again. Thunder, lightning, pouring down rain…but also the heat & humidity of a South American rainforest. WTF??? :sohot: :sohot: :sohot:

      Share away! We love new visitors to The Dungeon, & animal lovers/rescuers are especially welcome. :happysummer:

    Poor kittehs, so happy for them the ordeal is over :peace:

    I love the memes ?

    • Heidi Betts says:

      We are, too! :sohot: Not exactly sure what possessed me to schedule cleaning for all of them the same week, except that I just wanted it DONE…& also wanted to be able to remember that they’d all be done at the same time, so no scratching my head later wondering how long it had been for each individual cat. :aargh:

      So glad you enjoyed the pics. Cat pics on the internet…what would we do without them? :lolol:
