Crazy cat lady.

I had to take the cat to the vet for her vaccinations on Saturday.

The vet was running a bit late, and when he called for us to go into the treatment room, he apologised for the delay.

Gesturing to the front desk he said seriously, "I'm so sorry. You see, our server died yesterday".

"Oh my god!" I said, "I'm so sorry how AWFUL!"

"Oh," he said, looking strangely at me, "Thank you."

"I mean, that's just terrible! God, was it sudden?! You seem so CALM?!"

He stared at me, confused.

"I mean the computer server died," he said, adding "You know, no Internet."

"Oh thank GOD! Ahahaha! Oh I thought you meant your receptionist had died! I thought you seemed a bit blasé! Haha!" I laughed shrilly, "What a RELIEF!!"

He looked slightly bemused but carried on like a true professional.

I did what I always do in awkward situations and chatted away to fill the silence. I think I managed to have him convinced I was a normal person until right at the end when they gave me my bill and I absent mindedly asked if I could have a receipt so that I could claim it at Medicare.

Bona fide crazy cat lady credentials right there people.



Look into my eyes, Human Infant. Give me all your catnip. I know it's hidden round here somewhere. Don't make me SCHMOOZE you. We both want what's best here...

    1. Totally! I did see a pamphlet on the counter about pet health insurance. I have to say there are limits to the amount of money I would spend to save that cat's life. Is that unfeeling?

    2. No. I'm wondering about expanding this comment so people that love animals more than people don't report me to PETA and start a hate campaign but I can't think of anything insightful enough, so I'm sticking with No.

    1. I am not deaf, just exhibiting the signs of early senility!!!
      Cat is nice she was a stray who adopted us. Although she is prone to hair balls. As a well groomed cat yourself, what do you do to keep away those unsightly hair vomits?

  5. I took the kitten to the vet a week or so ago because she kept dry heaving. He said she had a fur ball.

    I said I'd expected her to have two which is why I'd called HER Fast Eddie!

    1. Paul are you who I think you are?? Your reference to Fast Eddie is obscure and has confused me because I don't know who that is. Will Google stat. Is it a horse racing reference?

    2. oh god, yes, it's me NS (how did you guess ;) - long story - Managed to cock up Fudges FB page so it wont let me comment as me and so had to set up a fake admin (who I called Paul M) and I obviously left this comment from that account rather than Fudges.

      Fast Eddy is the kitten who lived behind the fridge for several months and Id decided was a boy but it turns out she's a girl.

    2. SHUT UP you are ! Also Do not do that. Unless you've had wine and are feeling nice to yourself. It can be a little like reading your 16-yo diary ... BUT it has been constantly funny for me. So PUT YOUR READING EYES DOWN! My reading eyes say its 6am and WTF are they doing open!?!?!?

  9. LOL! Reminds me of the time I went to a high school reunion and was chatting to a fellow. I asked him "so what are you doing now, where are you living, what's happening" and he answered (or so I thought) "I'm a singleton". As he was newly married the last time we caught up, I said seriously "Oh I'm so sorry to hear that". He looked at me puzzled til we eventually worked out that I'd misheard him - he'd told me he was living in the TOWN of Singleton! Oooops. Cringe worthy that one!
