KATIE: What are you doing back here so fast, Waffles? You were supposed to be at the vet all day.
WAFFLES: We drove down the curvy mountain road while I sang the song of my people. And then we turned around and came back up.
KATIE: What do you mean? You never went to the vet?
WAFFLES: Nope. I told you before. Glogirly and me were just going for a Jeep ride.
KATIE: So you didn't go to the vet?
WAFFLES: Boss, I think you need to get your ears checked. Maybe YOU need to go to the vet.
KATIE: I don't get it. I've been to the vet like 100 times in the past three months. Waffles goes once, and he doesn't even go. How does he do it?
Wait. What??If you stopped by on Wednesday you probably know that Glogirly and Waffles took a Jeep ride to the vet for his wellness exam, blood work and dental cleaning. It was to be an all-day affair. But a little under an hour after they left, Glogirly showed up back at the house. WITH Waffles.
Apparently halfway to the vet, Glogirly started talking to herself. Was Waffles' appointment today? Was it tomorrow? Was it yesterday? What did the note on the kitchen counter say? Uh oh...did she have the WRONG DAY???
There was a phone call. Then some HBO words Waffles couldn't understand. Then a U-turn.
Yup, they were one week early.
Meanwhile, Katie is trying to figure out how Waffles can be the luckiest cat in the world. Just how does he manage to dodge vet appointments like this? And how can she dodge her next one?
I've done the same thing, and am extremely glad I'm not the only one!
Katie had a day of napping in peace planned. Well, at least she has something to look forward to. Waffles, Glogirly should have bought you some chicken to make up for the fact that you didn't even need to be in the jeep. ;)ReplyDelete
oh well Waffles you're in for another trip,xxx SpeedyReplyDelete
Waffles, you lucked out. This time.ReplyDelete
Dodged a bullet this time Waffles ;)ReplyDelete

MOL!!!!! Waffles was sooooo lucky this time!!!ReplyDelete
Oh no!!! My mum does things like that too. Aww well you were just practicing for next week. have a nice weekend.ReplyDelete
But Katie, he didn't dodge anything, he was taken on a car ride. Do you want to go on a pointless ride in the car? I didn't think so :)ReplyDelete
Waffles does seem to lead a charmed life. Don't worry, Katie. You will get your mini vacation soon.ReplyDelete
Stereo purrs........Hemingway and Steinbeck
At least you weren't all the way there.ReplyDelete
must be a weird Waffles thing....though we suspect he won't be so lucky next timeReplyDelete
Oh dang Glogirly - I'm so sorry. I hate those senior moments.ReplyDelete
Whoa. Glogirly needs to go to the vet. ;)ReplyDelete
Don't worry Katie, his date will come...ReplyDelete
MOL ! Is Waffles aware of the "for real" appointment ? PurrsReplyDelete
Bet those HBO words are still echoing 'round the canyons...ReplyDelete
ROTFL, you would have been very early!ReplyDelete
Waffles you got away with it this time but not next week then Katie will know you had to go to the vet. Guess it was just a half way practice run. Hugs and Purrs.ReplyDelete
Lol! HBO words! 😂 You still have to go next week Waffles!ReplyDelete
HAHAHAHA. Glogirly, you need to check and then recheck your calendar. Hope Waffles enjoyed his car ride.ReplyDelete
MOL that sounds like something OUR Mom would do!!ReplyDelete

I've been lucky like you Waffles at least 3 times! Mom drops me off at the vet, one of the nice girls takes my blood, I sit in a cage for about an hour, then mom shows up and takes me home! I guess I was suppose to have surgery to remove some lumps but I don't have enough platelets, whatever that means. It will be our secret okay? Love DollyReplyDelete
Waffles, your human is EX-tremely anxious to get you to the vet. So much so she tried to get you in there a week early. You better look out!!!ReplyDelete
Good thing that Waffles doesn't understand HBO words. Hopefully he doesn't start saying them just because it is interestingReplyDelete
