Did They Give You Loves?

22 Feb

Bongo's Head in the Cat CageScratchy, what are you doing in there? Did you get to go to the vet today?

Did you have a good time?

You didn’t like it? Why not? Didn’t they give you treats?

No treats!? I got lots of treats at the vet. How come you didn’t get any treats?

Well, did they give you loves?

Scratchy Held by the Vet

No loves either? I don’t get it. When I went to the vet I got lots of treats and loves.

You did what!!!? You attacked my our person?

They wrapped you in a towel and poked things into you?

Scratchy Wrapped in a Towel

Scratchy, they poked some things in me too, but the treats and loves made up for it.

Then they what? They picked you up with leather gloves and held you down?

You kicked and hissed and scratched and tried to give them what for?

Scratchy, I thought I was pretty tough – but I guess you’re the toughest.

I think I’m going to let you keep being the toughest – because, you know why. When you chase all those people away with your claws and your teeth and your toughness, they’re going to come to me with all the loves.

Just keep on being tough, Scratchy.

    No treats for Scratchy? 😦

      Dianda, Scratchy wasn’t in any kind of a mood for treats. I think he would have bitten their fingers off.

    Tough or not, you would always get loves from me, Bongo!

      Thanks Sweet Kitten. My person finally gave me my own Facebook page and I “Liked” yours.

    A very aptly named puss! Scratchy…he obviously did not enjoy his visit to the vets…my Stumpy, who is called that because of his stump tail…he really enjoys going to see his vet people even though they did cut one of his legs off…

    Best keep clear of Scratchy Bongo!

      Patreciau, Scratchy calmed down after he got back home. Mostly we put up with each other, although he has scratched my nose a few times.

    Poor scratchy 😦 I hope you are extra nice to him this evening Bongo

      Fluffy Tufts, I’m always nice to Scratchy – well, sort of.

    He’s not called Scratchy for nothing!

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2012 at 11:05 am

      Bassa, Scratchy does have some pretty mean claws. Fortunately he doesn’t use them very often – except at the vet’s.

      • Bassas Blog

        February 22, 2012 at 11:07 am

        It can be a stressful time. Fortunately, my vet comes to me so I feel more relaxed because I’m at home.

      • Bongo

        February 22, 2012 at 11:10 am

        Bassa, I wonder if your vet would come here next time Scratchy needs to go.

      • Bassas Blog

        February 22, 2012 at 11:15 am

        I am sure he would love to visit. Does Scratchy understand Georgian?

      • Bongo

        February 22, 2012 at 11:29 am

        Bassa, Scratchy understands cat. I think cats speak the same language all over – or do they?

    So Scratchy lives up to his name huh?

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2012 at 11:10 am

      Jaxart4animals, that’s how Scratchy got his name. Of course my younger person was only six then and he named him.

    I absolutely love your ending!! Thanks for the laugh….and ohhhh so true!

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2012 at 3:13 pm

      Thanks Cee. Scratchy never appreciates it when I try to give him loves so I might as well take all the loves myself.

    Poor Scratchy. Vet trips are hard. Stand back Humans – Scratchy is on the loose!

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2012 at 3:15 pm

      Dogdaz, at least Scratchy calmed down when he got home. I’ve been trying to be nice to him and give him some loves but for some reason he just doesn’t want any.

    Ooooh! Poor Scratchy! Although it sounds like he can hold his own! LOL!

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2012 at 3:18 pm

      Bassetmomma, Scratchy can definitely hold his own. I am living proof of that.

    Scratchy makes Bongo look even more like a saint 🙂

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2012 at 3:18 pm

      Thanks Winsomebella. I think I’ll stand next to Scratchy more often. I can use all the saintliness I can get.

    Poot Scratchy! It’s a shame when they don’t display their endearing side to the vet. I’m glad he’s happily back home being his grumpy self. Sounds as though he has the perfect name! 🙂

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2012 at 3:20 pm

      Flo, that name fits Scratchy perfectly. I have scars on my nose to prove it.

    The first photo is so funny!!

    Scratchy is one tough kitty! Sounds like he did not have any fun at all but I don’t blame him. Our Roory is the sweetest cat ever…until it comes to the vet. She usually has to be sedated for them to examine her! I guess cats reaaalllly don’t like the vet!

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2012 at 6:45 pm

      Deanna, my person says Scratchy has never been this bad before. He usually tolerates the vet. He probably didn’t like having his picture taken.

    Oh my Dog! I think Scratchy is related to June Buggie! Hide Bongo!

      Rumpy, you’re scaring me. Scratchy, I’m not coming out till you calm down.

    I hope Scratchy is OK! Stop by and bark along !! Happy Wordless Wednesday!

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2012 at 8:49 pm

      Tim, Scratchy was just fine after he got away from the vet. He was only in for booster shots and a check up.

  15. Patricia

    February 22, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Poor Scratchy. he is not as tough as he would like you to think. He is scared! He needs loves.

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2012 at 8:52 pm

      Patricia, I’ve been trying to give Scratchy loves since his ordeal, but for some reason he doesn’t want loves from me.

      • Patricia

        February 23, 2012 at 3:29 pm

        Well, Bongo, He has a reputation to maintain.

    I think Scratchy needs a timeout. Plain and simple.

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2012 at 11:46 pm

      Good idea Henry. I think I’ll put Scratchy back in his cage.

  17. angelswhisper2011

    February 23, 2012 at 1:08 am

    I think henrythebrave is right, Bongo, Scratchy has to get back into his sences. It’s very generous of you to let Scratchy be the toughest with malice prepence 😀

    • Bongo

      February 23, 2012 at 10:53 am

      Angels Whisper, I’m trying to get Scratchy back into his cage for a time out, but he won’t go.

    Poor Scratchy… make sure you give him all the loves he deserves after his ordeal! [You are the Superior Dog remember?!]

    • Bongo

      February 23, 2012 at 10:54 am

      Marina, Scratchy doesn’t appreciate my loves, but I’ll keep trying.

        That’s the attitude!!!

    • Bongo

      Laurie, Scratchy was fine as soon as he got back home and out of his cat cage.

    Oh no….poor Scratchy….look at him at the vet! He must have been struggling to escape! I hate to going to vet and my cat brofur neither…. we feel very sorry for Scratchy…*Paw tapping on Scrathcy’s shoulder*

    • Bongo

      February 23, 2012 at 10:58 am

      Kevin, Scratchy was trying to get back in his cage and they closed the opening on him. I told him you tapped his shoulder and he said he hopes your taps are gentler than mine. I don’t get it.

    Madam Lasagna says, “That’s cats for ya! They’re their own worst enemies.” She’ll be happy to help you dispose of Scratchy’s treats in the future.

    • Bongo

      February 23, 2012 at 10:58 am

      Madam Lasagna, come on over. You and I can get into Scratchy’s treats together.

    I agree, oh no! Poor Scratchy. Hope today’s a better day furry friend. 🙂

      February 23, 2012 at 10:59 am

      Geraldine, Scratchy’s lounging in a sunny spot now as if nothing ever happened.

    I feel for you and Scratchy. 😉

    • Bongo

      February 23, 2012 at 2:59 pm

      Thanks eof737. I don’t think Scratchy needs any feeling for though. He’s just ornery.

  24. colliesofthemeadow

    February 23, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    LOL…. One on our cats Bongo was put into a bag at the vets that allowed only her head to show for she was so tough and naughty! We think you are right Bongo, you can gain a lot of love during this time. 🙂

    Your friends,
    The Collies and Chuck 🙂

    • Bongo

      February 23, 2012 at 5:45 pm

      Collies and Chuck, Scratchy says he and your cat would probably be good buddies – but I’ll take the loves.

  25. 2browndawgs

    February 23, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    Poor Scratchy. No loves. No treats. Just wrapped in a towel.

    • Bongo

      February 23, 2012 at 5:49 pm

      Brown Dawgs, I think Scratchy needs to pay more attention to what I do.

    Bongo, congratulations for your Facebook page! YaY!
    Good thing your didn’t get your nose scratched off when you peeked in Scratchy’s carrier! 🙂
    Happy Friday!!! Woof!

    • Bongo

      February 24, 2012 at 10:20 am

      Thanks Sunshine. I guess I was taking a chance sticking my nose in there, but Scratchy just waited until I left and then ran out of there.

    Oh Scratchy!! When our cat goes to the vet she gets lots of pets and loves. She is so sweet to the vet and they really enjoy seeing her. They give her pokes but she doesn’t act like she cares, she just waits and gets more loves for being so good. I think they would be nicer if you weren’t trying to scratch them 😦

      Lexie, Mica, and Mom, I just wanted to get back to my comfy home. I figured if I was nasty to them they’d send me out of there sooner. -Scratchy
