It’s easy to see that this is one smart baby kitten. It knows that escape is its only option, and it is wise enough not to trust the vet. This kitty might be small, but it is mighty! We give it major praise for defending itself so bravely. Those teeny tiny teeth can pack quite a punch, and we’re sure it’s harboring some impressive claws as well.
We’ve seen other cats hide in sinks, cabinets, and below benches, but that’s not an option here. This little kitty is ready to fight. Its ancestors were tigers, and they knew how to take down their enemies. Why shouldn’t she?
I'm Going to Need A lot More Than That
The treat trick is a time-tested tradition by pet parents and vets alike. But some pets are wiser than others. They understand that the human hand is only offering a prize because they want something in return. This poor creature may have fallen for these falsehoods before, but it's not going to fall victim to them again.
That delicacy is not worth the cold shiny table and the poking that's so likely to come after. This pup seems to be saying, "But it does smell good. And I know it tastes good. But I think you need to give me more. More treats will mean more cooperation. It will be a good deal for both of us, I think."
You Think They Can See Us?
This charming little puppy probably had a decent morning today. He got up ready to walk, play, eat, and snuggle. He was even offered a very special car trip, to the park, he thought. He jumped in the car, as all good dogs do, tail and tongue wagging. But nothing is ever as it seems, is it?
The magical car took him not to the open fields, but to the closed wards of the vet's office. he already knows the drill, and squishes himself between Mom's legs as best he can. But the real trick is, he doesn't fit in his brilliant hiding place!
No One Will Ever Find Me Here
Bravery is admirable, but it often comes from being young and naive. The pets that understand how the world works know the vet is as inevitable as the need to pee. We see an experienced adult feline here. It's used up a few of its nine lives and knows there is no real use in fighting the inevitable.
The vet is one of those things. The hiding spot is creative, not the usual sink, thank goodness, and it knows that if it can see through its hiding spot, there's a good chance the spot is see-through. Alas, we can still see it because of its size, which means the vet will most certainly be able to see it, too.
I'll Fit... You'll See!
We will never understand exactly what the lives of our pets are like. Look at this cat, for example. Perhaps its owner told it a diet was necessary. Perhaps that same owner cut back on the dry food and the treats. But this cat was too smart for its own good. It knew how to find and access the food it craved. It was also unwilling to give up any of its pre-planned nap time for some much-needed exercise.
So, here they are, owner and cat come to seek professional assistance and, finally, it seems the cat has realized what was in its best interest all along. But they've reached the vet, and it's much too late to turn back now.
