that was an adventure alright!!
When I got to the vet yesterday afternoon,
I was "welcomed" with an injection,
(talk about a welcome...),
then I was left in a small space with a grid,
not much of a view,
& my neighbors were rather noisy.
I wasn't thrilled with the accomodations,
if you want to know the truth.
I missed my home with TICKLEBEAR!!!
the vet took me & set me on a table,
& the rest is pretty fuzzy.
But when I came around,
I just felt weird inside,
& my paws also felt strange.
OH MY GOD!!!
My claws are gone!!!
And I got some metallic threads on my belly.
What happened to me?
Should I be calling 9-1-1?
Or my lawyer?
I felt pretty lonely all night,
& the day that followed was a long one.
But come evening,
I was pleasantly surprised to see TICKLEBEAR appear,
and he seemed as delighted to see me as I was.
That's a relief
as I was afraid he might have left me.
He picked me up gently & put me in the carrier,
promising the worse was over
& we were going home.
Best news I've had in a while.
When we got home,
he served me my favorite dish,
It was great to find myself again on familiar grounds,
with my toys & my plushy furniture,
& someone to look over me.
There's no place like home!!!
