Xanthe is always on Mummy's lap when Mummy is posting for us or when we are checking out all our Kitizens' blog posts. Me, I have to squeeze under the desk and on top of the computer tower. I don't mind too much though because it's nice and warm! I wish it was a little softer though.
Xanthe came up to me early this morning and whispered in my ear that I am to have a CHIP on Friday!
She said "I already got mine from the VET."
I said "But I don't like chips and I'm not keen on going to the VET!"
I couldn't believe it when Mummy packed me up in the Kitty Carrier again, yesterday. As soon as we got out of the house I started screaming at her "Mommy I haven't jumped from the bedroom window and I haven't hurt myself! We don't need to go to the horrible VET!"
Mummy said "I'm not taking you for that, Xanthe. We're going to go to the vet to get you CHIPPED."
I didn't know what she meant by that.
Mummy told me "We need to get you chipped in case you leave the house or the garden and get lost. If you get lost and someone finds you then they can take you to the vet and the vet can scan you with a special machine which will detect the chip with all your information on it and bring you back home."
It sounded interesting and helpful too.
We got to the VET and she put a big needle in my fur and put the CHIP under my skin and that was that. All Mummy had to do was type my details into the computer. So simple and it didn't hurt either.
Mummy said "You're a brave girl, Xanthe."
Yes I am!
Last Tuesday we had a visitor at the house. Mummy and Daddy had been busy tidying the house from head to toe - if it had a head or a toe at all - before her arrival. It took them all weekend. The house was spotless, not a flick of dust or a cat hair in sight.
Well this lady came and had a good look around. I tried my best to make friends with the lady by showing her my handsomeness. I rubbed myself against the walls and the legs of tables and chairs and I showed that I was pleased to meet her with my happy tail. Mummy noticed me and gave me a cuddle, seeing that I was trying to say "hello". But the lady didn't bother looking at me, even when Mummy pointed me out to her.
Mummy asked the lady, "Don't you like cats?"
The lady cringed and said "I'm not a pet person."
Mummy asked "Why not?"
The lady said it was because she had children?! Me and Mummy were very surprised by her answer. I thought she was a rude and cheeky lady!
