because the cat says

It certainly looked like a cat stand-off, but it may have just been the Slightly Retarded Kitty filling in Splotchy Cat on her recent adventures.

They trapped me in the truck and it started moving! And we kept going faster and faster. I didn't know what was happening, so I just kept telling them you better turn this thing around! We better stop right now and you better turn around right now! And you know what? They did.

Actually the real reason we aborted the trip to Manitoba today had more to do with the issues that the Spousal Unit has been having with vertigo lately. A mere 45 minutes into the trip, he pulled the truck over to the side of the road and admitted to feeling quite ill. Although I certainly could have driven the rest of the way, there is nothing fun about an 11 hour trip when you are feeling nauseous.

So we returned home, much to the kitty's satisfaction, who immediately headed out to brag about it all to the neighbour cat.

If you get vertigo, does that mean everyone looks like Kim Novak to you?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Good question, Mr Anchovy. I shall have to ask the Spousal Unit if his wife has been looking particularly blonde and lovely lately.

Hmmm I trust he's getting that checked out?

LMAO at Mister Anchovy!

You do realise this episode sounds vaguely like early period Vinyl Cafe.

Poor SU... Hope he's feeling better. He didn't just get a new eyeglass prescription perchance did he? I feared I was headed to a place called Vertigo when mine changed last year.

Next time consider feline tranquilizers too... You'll be purring like a kitten in no time...

He is indeed, UB. Did you know that you now have to wait two weeks to get into Calgary Lab Services?

Are you accusing me of pulling a Stuart McLean, Sean?
I remember the vertigo hell you went through, and I had wondered about his switching back from bifocals a while ago. Time to pull out the detective hat again...

Kitty does not know what he missed!

Hope SU is back in the pink soon.

@mister anchovy - priceless.

how cute that you travel with your kitty!

hope SU is feeling better...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Leazwell: We kept telling the cat "you think 45 minutes was bad, be grateful it wasn't 11 hours".

We've never traveled with her before, Jen, this was a practice run I guess.

And yes, the SU is feeling considerably better, thanks.

Missing my cat right now :(

Oh I'm so sorry, John! Don't give up hope that she will come home again.
