Taking that cranky old cat to the vet today, are you? Good! She’s been jumpy and skittish and growly for a couple of days now. (I simply can’t imagine what might have thrown her off her feed….) Dare I hope you’ll leave the spitty thing there? No? Oh, well. Can’t have everything. Here, let me help you with the cage.
Hey, no! Wait! This isn’t funny! Come back! Hey! Get back here!
Laugh all you want now. I will repay you for this later. That is not an idle threat.
It is a promise.
