So today the cat went for her annual vaccination.
Every visit is a traumatic experience, for her and the vet. Last year, she was forced to wear a straight jacket for everyone's safety.
This year, she drew blood from an attendant who had to be taken to a hospital to receive a jab himself.
I also booked her for a grooming session - haircut, ear cleaning and nail trimming - during which her wrath was invoked.
They probably overcharged us on the bill but I was too embarrased to pursue the matter.
