Number One Reason I Do Not Like The Kittens

I, Frankie, the chiweenie, am mad--oh-so-mad. Ever since they brought Farrah, the feral pregnant cat home, I have had a bad feeling. I sense cat-astrophe. Things got worse after Farrah gave birth to her five adorable kittens. There's nothing cuter than a newborn and newborn kittens are near the top of that list, but all the dogs have to be quite and tip toe around Farrah's designated quarters. Add to that the fact that one day she shot out of her room and lunged at poor Linguini, the sixty pound dalmatian pointer mix. Soon after the kitten were born, my family built an outdoor cat enclosure and I'm afraid it's because some, hopefully not all of the newborn kittens, are here to stay. First, let me give you a sneak peak of the enclosure.

Outdoor Cat Enclosure
a.k.a The Cat Palace

We will be adding colorful toys and beds and scratching surfaces soon

The outdoor cat enclosure was a minor annoyance. I had to hang out and watch M working for a day. I didn't get to go on a hike, but it was just one day, so I didn't mind much. Besides, I liked the fact that the cats would have something to do other than chase me, the brindle chiweenie around the house. Now, I've mustered the courage to speak of the unspeakable! 

The real reason I do NOT like the newborn kittens: 

I was used as a . . . DEMO kitten!!!

My otherwise beloved dog vet, used me, Frankie, a dog, a brindle chiweenie to be precise, as a means to demonstrate how to administer deworming medication for the kittens. 

Silly kittens. They're getting bigger and louder every day. I feel sorry for their mom. The following kitten video proves it. Turn the volume down.

They used you? Oh no! LOL! Those kittens!

I hope you will come to our Hawaii party. Hope to see you there!

I love my kitty....probably because I only have one little one here. The other guys are old and don't do much of anything except sleep. Good luck, my friend!

Now that is kind humiliating!


PeeS....The cat palace is pretty pawsome though!

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear! I'm very much sorry about that, Frankie. But I have to say that it was a Most Marvelous performance on your part. Maybe you should gets an agent.

Um, I think my mom may have just gotten some ideas after looking at that cat castle.

I love kitties - in theory - but even I would have been pretty ticked at being a demo kitten. Unless - was there pay involved? It seems like a job that should come with paid compensation to me. I have to tell you, looking at the kitty enclosure it's looking like you're going to have to adjust to the idea. They don't seem to be going anywhere any time soon. Best of luck to you.

Misuse of a dawg is a major offense. It should be punished.

WHOA! There was not enough warning on that video. The hu-dad was just mugged by 6 eager Siberian Huskies. Hu-dad promises to never play that video again.

Frankie that is too bad that you were used as a demo kitten for the worming meds. But you were so sweet to put up with it. And the cat enclosure will be a good way to keep the cats and kittens entertained (we are actually super jealous of it because it is awesome). And boy that video got us riled up - we couldn't figure out where that kitten crying was til mom told us it was a video.

We think that the kittens are very lucky to have awesome doggies around like you - it is important for kittens to learn that doggies aren't scary or mean.

And seriously that cat enclosure is awesome - tell your mom she should go to when it is done and submit it because it rocks!

I can't believe they would treat you like that, Frankie! You're too good for that sort of stuff!

I still think you should put that little buff colored kitten in a tiny box and mail it here! It's the only way I'll get a kitten. I asked for one at the store and they said no. Then I got a German Shepherd! Gah!

Horrors - a demo kitten??? silly vet -what was he thinking?

Mom tried to catch it on video but she wasn't quick enough - Ciara went crazy hearing the kitties squealing away. We will have to try again.

Wow, no doubt about it...that's a PALACE! What luxury those cats get to live cool! Mom says she wishes our neighbors would build one of those so their cats could be outside but NOT be able to jump over our fence and do their stinky business in our yard! ;) I don't mind but she sure does. Anyway, how rude that you were used as a demo dog...I hope it wasn't too traumatic. I thought the Momma cat was very cute giving her baby a bath...those kitties sure are cute although I am sure you are SICK of hearing that. ;)

We have to say that your mom did a pawsome job on the cat palace, and, unfortunately, it does look like some of the kitties are there to stay. Butt think of it this way, just a couple of more fur brothers and sisters to have fun with!

Waggles & Chi kisses, Chewy & Lilibell

At least they move in slow motion due to being somewhat uncoordinated. Just wait until they get zoomies.
