I “toyed” with the idea of making this my Christmas Tickle Me post because next week will be so close to Christmas, but decided to “present” this post instead! 🙂

One December day we found an old straggly cat at our door.  She was a sorry sight – starving, dirty, smelled terrible, skinny with her hair all matted down.  We felt sorry for her so we put her in a carrier & took her to the vet.  When they asked for her name we didn’t know what to call her so we named her “Pussycat.”   The vet decided to keep her for a day or so.  He said he would let us know when we could come get her. 

My husband (the complainer) said, “OK, but don’t forget to wash her, she stinks!”
 
He made sure to remind the vet that it was his WIFE (me) who wanted the dirty cat, not him.  See, my husband & my vet don’t see eye to eye.  The vet calls my husband “El Cheap-O” & my husband calls the vet “El Charge-O.”  They love to hate each other & constantly snipe at one another, with my husband getting in the last word on this particular occasion.
 
 
The next day my husband had an appointment with his doctor who is located in the same building, next door to the vet.  My vet must have seen my husband come in.  The GP’s waiting room & office was full of people waiting to see the doctor when a side door opened & the vet leaned in.

He looked straight at my husband & in a loud voice he said, “Your wife’s pussy doesn’t stink anymore.  We washed & shaved it & now she smells like a rose!  Oh & by the way, she’s pregnant!  God only knows who the father is!”
 
Then he closed the door.  The silence was deafening.  Game, set & match to the vet. 
Welcome December
