CATS ON TUESDAY
Mr. Gattino had a strong cold, due to Arthur probably, who had him go out in the cold and rain to look for him while he (Mr. Arthur) was lying peacefully in my wardrobe and slept ! Neither of us had seen him disappearing.
The doctor whom we know since 32 years came as usual with his bag full of strange things and Pookie had to put her nose in it to sniffle if there were no hidden treats in there.
As she found nothing special she stroked around the bag and ...
when cats don't know what to do they scratch themselves behind an ear (just like humans) to think it over.
I nearly hadn't the time to shout "NO" and order her NOT to climb in, because that's what she intended to do.
She looked at me reproachfully and went away, very offended. I had spoiled her last investigations.
As soon as Pookie had left the room, Lisa showed up. She of course had to look in their too. But she didn't like it and prefered to jump on our doctor's knees. There she settled down and listend full of attention to the diagnostic.
Nothing special, just a few pills, stay warm, and in a few days he would be fine.
The only one who didn't hear anything of these events, slept deep and peacefully besides my bed (and not on, why ?) which made our Doctor ask "Where is Arthur ?" because they are big friends and usually Arthur greats him like a long lost friend.
But Arthur is still in his hibernation.
As so many people wonder why our doctor makes home visits, I will explain : He still is the Doctor of the "old school" although he is the same age as me (63) . He loves his patients and likes to come to their houses. He is not married and his job is his hobby. Usually a doctor only comes to your home when you are half dead with one leg in your coffin.
