The Impatient Patient

Hi all, Siren here. I felt the need to share. To vent. To kvetch if you will.

I had to go back to the vet on Saturday. It was St. Patrick's Day and my plans did not include shots and being poked at. I had hoped for some corned beef and sneaking a sip of beer.

Finally back at home I expected to be left alone.


As I drifted off I heard her, The Florence Nightingale of animals, coming my way. We had already discussed meds by mouth and come to the agreement that they are a NO so all I could do was assume she was in anxious mode again.


Oh fabulous, she has the camera with her.


I'm fine, just fine. I'm breathing and everything. Didn't we just come from the vet? Good heavens you're needy.


Here. Take my pulse or something. Anything to make you calm down and go away.


Well of course my claws are in. I'm annoyed but I'm not an animal.


Ya know, sometimes you just suck the color out of my world.


Thank goodness! Isadora just threw up in a shoe. Peace and quiet at last.

Poor Baby! I hope you get your rest and tell Florence to go somewhere else to take her pictures. Sleep is the best medicine..

Sleep is all you need. x

LadyFi said...

So funny! Hope you get some lovely peace and quiet - and soon!

Linda said...

Aww, poor Siren! A cat can't even get some rest without a camera being shoved in her face. Thank goodness Isadora came to the rescue!

Fingers crossed someone saved you a bit of corned beef for when you feel better, Siren!

Mike said...

Sleeeeeep. I think cats are born retired.

Marg said...

Oh too funny Siren. These hooomans are just so norty. They just will not give us any peace. You had our Mom laughing out loud about the taking of the pulse. But we do hope you take your medicine. Have a great week. Take care.

Ron said...

Oh, what a sweet post, Siren!

And please tell Florence Nightingale that I love the photos she captured of your adorable paws!

That's my favorite part of a kitty. That, and your ears.

You take care, Siren, and know that I'm sending ya LOTS of good energy and love....

Oh Siren ... Rose empathizes with you ...

Ivanhoe said...

Poor baby! Momma's just worried about you, honey! Feel better!

Our Zoe was in a hospital last Tuesday! Sick again. Had to stay overnight on IVs. Chewed it of the next day & came home with blown up arm from all the seeping liquid. Sigh. She's good now :)

I hope it wasn't like our weekend emergency visits...poor Siren..I had to laugh as you really did catch all the thoughts...I hope things improve...sick cats..no fun and they are so stoic, it's hard to know what is really going on with them..hugs..

Linda Reeder said...

Josy has come to check out your blog. She's in complete agreement with you Siren, and has Isadora's skill at barfing.

HermanTurnip said...

It's funny how cats just naturally take over whatever creature comfort you're currently enjoying (blankets, pillows, freshly done laundry, etc...). :-)

DJan said...

Siren, you are looking pretty good to me. What a hard thing it is to be sick. I don't do it very well, either. Go back to sleep, pretty one.

Cherie said...

Oh Siren, you don't look like you feel well, but in the first and last pics where you look asleep, you look like the sweetest kitty. That's should have been my first clue that you didn't feel well. ;) Feel better dude.

We love LUNA said...

You are so cute! I understand your feeling, the paparazzi don't let us and they are always trying to get some picture with that flashbox! =^.^=
I love your paws!

Siren, I know it's tiresome but your human is just doing the best she can for you. Like all humans she tries too hard, sometimes, so ease up on her, eh?

you know kitty does have that "annoyed-as-fuck" look down pat :)

Hilary said...

Aww sweet kitty. Sleep is healing for everyone.. especially cats, it seems. Sweet dreams, little one.

Jenn Jilks said...

This is delightful, grumpy puss.
Ours have personalities, too!
Greetings from Cottage Country!

Siren, you made me laugh today and I needed that, thank you. Sibu says to say Hi.

I might be part cat -- when I don't feel good I just want to be left alone!
