Hi cats. In my last post, I told you how I got lots of attention from my Mom by pretending to be sick. Well, I found out that trick can backfire on you. That’s what happened to me!
At first, as I posted before, I got lots of love and attention from my Mom by pretending to be sick. So, when she did three loads of laundry while ignoring me, I puked . . . errr . . . coughed up a hairball all over our blanket. I figured that would get her attention. Well, it did, but not in the way I wanted. Would you believe that woman yelled at me? She shrieked, “Grace how could you? I have been doing laundry for three hours. Now, I’ll have to take the blanket to the Laundromat!” Then, she gave me a dirty look and walked out of the door mumbling, “I can’t even have peace in my own home!”
I didn’t like that. So, I coughed up another hairball which she stepped into as soon as she got home. I thought that she’d feel sorry for me. She didn’t. After washing her sock off, she gave me a look that could have curdled milk. Then, she said, “OK, Grace. You’re not getting any better. So, I guess I’m going to have to take you to the vet.” I wanted to scream, but I didn’t. Instead, I started running around the apartment, and jumping up on the refrigerator to show her that I’d made a complete recovery.
Thankfully, that worked, so I didn’t end up going to the vet. However, I found out that pretending to be sick is not a good way to get attention. So, I will stop doing that. And, I’d suggest that you not try this trick to get your human/s attention. It could cause you to end up at up at the vet’s office! I’ve got to go, though. Trixie’s at the window, and I want to see what’s been going on in the neighborhood. Type to you later, cats!
