Wowee…did we ever have a KERAZY day around here the other day.
I wanted to tell you abouts it but it seems Mom totally forgot to take pictures while everything was going on. So I decided I would illustrates it for you in drawings. You ready?
Okay, so a coupla weeks ago, Mom noticed Sisfur Abby had a bump on her back.
Errr…Abby is not really white with black stripes but it was kinda too hard to draw her how she actually is.
totally freaked out was mildly concerned and made an appointment for Sisfur Abby at the V.E.T.
Well, the day arrived and Mom put Sisfur Abby in her carrier (which Abby does NOT like). But as they were getting ready to leave, Mom smelled something.
It smelled like rubber was burning or something. So Mom checked around and all of a sudden, she noticed SMOKE coming from the laundry room. So real quick-like, she put Abby’s carrier on a chair and RAN to see what was happening.
When she gots there, she found smoke pouring outta the washing machine!
She didn’t see any fire coming out of it so she unplugged it and
totally freaked out again calmly called Dad.
Now, all this time, Abby was walking back and forth in her carrier, cursing a blue streak and threatening to behead Mom. Well, all this activity caused her carrier to shift and WHAM! her carrier fell on the floor. This made her curse more.
So Mom is opening windows and picking up Abby off the floor and apologizing to her and talking to Dad and wondering whether she should still take Abby to the V.E.T. but she really NEEDS to go to the V.E.T. and it already took 2 weeks to get in and she really doesn’t want to wait another 2 weeks and, and, and…
FINALLY, Dad gets her calmed down and tells her it’s prolly only a belt on the washing machine and to take Abby to the V.E.T. But now Mom only has like 8 minutes to get there. So she calls the V.E.T. to tell them that she might be a couple of minutes late.
Well, wouldn’t you know it? Mom drives
like a bat out of hell in an orderly and lawful manner and they get there RIGHT ON TIME. But cuz she’d told them she was gonna be late, the V.E.T. went ahead and took an emergency case that had come in.
So Mom had to hang out in the waiting room for
87 million years 20 minutes, listening to Abby curse at her and worrying that maybe it wasn’t just a belt and something was gonna catch fire.
Turns out Abby’s bump has some weird cells in it but the V.E.T. isn’t TOO worried about it. He told Mom that he wants to take it off and send it for a bye-op-see just to make sure. Soooo…Abby and Mom have to go back next week to have that done.
Hopefully, that trip will be a lot less…uh…exciting.
PeeS. Everything’s prolly gonna be just fine for Abby, but would you keep your paws crossed for her anyway? Thank you, thank you!
PeePeeS. The washing machine is fine. I guess mom’s clothes were so dirty that it caused the motor to overheat. Heehee!
