Catty humans...

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! :)


  1. The more people and cats are together the more people act like cats

  2. I grew up with dogs and horses and only adopted my first cat after my ex and I split 10 years ago. I wouldn't consider myself a "cat" person, but I love my companions dearly, more than I ever can say. We have our cat blog, but I would be blogging about any four-legged companion I had--dog, cat, horse, rabbit, etc. It's unfortunate those women were so "catty." IMO, all four-legged Beings are equally wonderful and worthy!

  3. I would have stuck up for you!!!

  4. How rude!!!! Hope the medicines work.

  5. There you go - I knew there was hope! We clearly were just unfortunate to encounter two unpleasant humans. Maybe I should learn how to comunicate in animal language rather - I suspect the conversations will be much kinder and more entertaining! :)

    Medicine unfortunately is taking a while to work - we just can't seem to beat whatever is causing her rashes. We have to see the specialist in 3 months time again, so we need to just be patient now. Thanks for the good wishes!

  6. that's a shame that that had to happen to you. I don't understand people sometimes. I have a cat and a dog and accompany both of them to the vet. I have to say that when I bring my cat people with dogs tend to stay away from us. I have assumed it is probably because their dog doesn't like cats...(my cat LOVES dogs)....frankly when we take our dog to the vet we don't see many cat people. I am really sorry you met two people who were so rude, we cat lovers aren't ALL like that! I would have spoken to you for sure!
    Hope the meds work!

  7. That wasn't nice of them at all!! I started out as a cat lover, went to being a dog lover and now are both!! Lots of love, Debbie & Mom

  8. Not cool at all! Those poor kitties having such rude humans. I sometimes don't understand people. Very funny what Foley Monster and Pocket wrote!

    I do hope Chloe is O.K. and finds the help she needs to overcome her allergies. Poor thing! Paws crossed she feels better!

  9. Mean humans are the worst! Try not to let it get you down.
