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?
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, 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.
