Apparently Jack, our idiot cat, can tell time now.

Because he's been out and about all day, in a limited fashion - still occasionally startled into corners by the other cats hissing (we tried vanilla, we tried wiping him down, doesn't work, we need to buy cat wipes apparently; at least the hissing doesn't upset him - he just blinks at them and carries on being Jack), but otherwise eating, snuggling me during my nap, et cetera...

But we walked up with the syringe of Kitty Drugs and he was up in the damn box spring, the only place he knows we can't get at him.

Boy can tell time now. This is the only time today he's done that. I would be impressed if I wasn't wheezing from under-bed dust.

He actually gives up after meds are administered - fights like hell until I get the meds down his throat, and then he is perfectly calm and cuddleable. "Oh. You won again. Okay." Note to Jack: I will always win.

I have to remind Lenore of the same thing all the time. Also: "I'm BIGGER than you."

She doesn't care.

They will make you work for it.

Sorta sounds like Seaners before and just during ... pretty much any shot. Restrain him at all to get him to hold still, you'd imagine it's the end of the world. Shrieks when he gets the needle. Thirty seconds later? Jumping around like a mad thing, as tough nothing happened.

As my husband and I say regarding our cat: "We're larger. And have thumbs."

My cat Sans-Soucis can tell time, it's time I got up a fed her the cat treats. So far I haven't had to medicate this cat or the boy cat Gris-gris but I will have to eventually.

We had to take Daniel's sister's rabbit to the vet a couple of weeks ago, and then we ended up being the ones to give him his meds every day (teenagers...*grumble*). We would drag him out of his cage and wrap him in a towel to keep him from kicking, until we realized - on the last day - that he actually liked the medicine and the wrangling had been a waste of time.

Animals! I tell ya...

They can be very clever at times. Mostly inconvenient times.
