My sweetheart has just given the cat to me to hold and stroke while she goes off to find medication and a cotton bud to tend to something she reckons might give him grief in his ears. I've watched one or two programmes where vets treat dangerous animals, but they always start off by shooting a tranquilizer dart into the beast before fiddling about with them. She ain't said nuffink about that yet and if she turns up with a dart gun in a minute, I wont be holding the cat for long. I took her to the fair once and she's have one prize if she'd managed to hit the target in front of her. As it happens, the girl next to her went off with it. So here am I building a relationship with our car. He's purring and doing that weird treading thing that cats do when they're content, but how long is that gonna that last when she turns up with the ointment to work into his ears? I bet you any money you like she won't have treatment for lacerations if the cat decides to scarper once she starts.
