I've owned two cats in my life - or shall I say, I've been owned by two cats in my life. So even though I'm essentially a dog person, I certainly have a very soft spot for cats as well.
So imagine my disdain when I was treated like an invisible being by two cat owners in the vets waiting room the other day!
I so wished I could beam all my pet-blogger friends into the room with me to put those two in their place!
My little Chloe suffers from bad allergies and I finally asked for a referral to a specialist last week. So off we went to a new vets office. After a great consultation I felt quite happy that I got some good sound advice. So it was with a positive spring in my step that I went back to the waiting room whilst the prescription was filled for us.
Seated in the room were two ladies, each with a cat. I sat down, greeted them and started enquiring about their cats. The one ignored me totally, whilst the other one gave me a half-hearted greeting, squinted at my little princess and turned toward cat-lady number 2. They continued their conversation as if I didn't exist and my Chlo and I claimed our little corner in silence.
I wanted to tell them we were allergic, not contaminated!
Ok, now I feel better. Thanks for listening. Oh, and Chloe and I continue to love cats AND their owners - we'll just watch out for those two catty humans from now on! :)
