The Evilest of Evils

Every few weeks one of the hoomans (usually mum) sneaks up on me and puts some icky cold liquid on the back of my neck. I can always tell when they are about to do it too – they sneak up all friendly-like with that horrid squirty tube of doom hiding behind their back, pretending they want to pat me, and then *EEEEP!* the cold hits me right between my shoulder blades. Today was one of those days.

I HATES it! It makes me itch and it bothers me and my sensitive skin. They must be punished for putting me through that and so I run away and hide and refuse to let them pat me for at least half an hour afterwards. If they do get near I will half close one eye and scowl at them.
Hurumph
And then I forget it ever happened...till the next month.

  1. That happened to me yesterday, so I can totally sympathize!

  2. We get that done too, during our warmer months. But Nicki freaks out so badly--seriously--that the mom either has to take him to the vet techs to have it done or, as she did this summer, put him into his carrier and put the stuff on from there (it opens from the top).

  3. Yeah, our Momma does that to us too. But she says if we don't let her do it, we can't go Outside to play. So what can we do??

  4. wow I must be a bad kitty Momma! I have never given either of my cats flea meds!
    My Bobo was mostly an inside cat (every now and then he would go out on a leash)....and he lived til 18 with no flea meds and no fleas...
    My Cody is strictly and indoor cat (but we do have a dog who YES does use flea meds in the warm months)...and I have never given him flea meds!
    Am I the only bad kitty mama out there?

  5. My kitties are indoor kitties so I haven't had to do this until we got Jimmmy. He has had two treatments, the vet tech did one and made it look so easy, then two weeks later I had to apply it myself. Gah!!! Jimmy is so squrirmy at the best of times and always moving (very hard to take pictures of him too) it was VERY difficult, but he didn't seem to hold it against me :-)

  6. Darwin, we are very lucky that we don't have fleas here in the desert. It's just too dry for them to survive...but we would be utterly SCANDALIZED to endure such treatment monthly. It's uber-evil!

  7. HI Darwin! We have missed visiting you - mom's work computer got all blocked and we are just finally able to catch up now! Most of us have never had that neck stuff, but Kirzon and Lola did for a couple months when Virgil first moved in - we aren't sure what it is - we thought it was to make them like him or something. But we think it sounds awful, and that you are smart to go hide for a while to punish them - you would think they would learn by now! You do look super handsome in your picture today!!

  8. We don't know about this, Darwin. It sounds very suspicious!
