Conversations At Our House v.29

... and Sy said, "I mean, you're a professional. I would think that you'd start sexing them at the other end."

As the three people talking to Sy laugh a little and nod their head in agreement, a girl comes up and says, "I really have to quit coming into conversations part way. You can't be talking about what I think you are talking about [at the counter of the local hippie/artist co-op grocery store]!"

The four of us: "Oh! We're talking about cats! Finding out what sex they are."

Girl: "Riiiiiiiiiiiight."

Sexing cats hey? Who did you say was a pro at that??

Shannon said...

Wait, what other end?

OK, I need a little back story on this CAOH. A couple of weeks ago a stray cat came into our yard. It was starving, had scars all over it's body, had conjunctivitus in one eye, and was infested with ear mites and intestinal parasites.

I couldn't resist!

I usually chase the cats out of my yard, but this one I picked up. It is probably the most friendly, clingy cat that I have ever met.

We took it to the vet as soon as we could to have it checked out. I think our vet was having an off day. It was a Monday!

Kari, hey! I'm so glad to hear from you. I just made a visit to your blog.

Our vet is the professional, or so I would hope. He asked me what sex I thought the cat was, and having a long history of raising animals, I was really surprised (and a bit temporarily horrified) when he told me it wasn't a male as I thought, but most likely a pregnant female!!

Oh, it was a male after all.

Shannon, our vet told us he sure it was a female based on it's head size (pregnant because it's belly was so large but the overall rest was extremely thin). I'm pretty sure that you're supposed to check the back end - not the front end!

If the poor thing was full of worms no wonder it was undersized and with a swollen belly. Are you going to keep him??

Mrs. Loquacious said...

I liked the story way better without the explanation; that way, I could use my own dirty little imagination to fill in the parts! ;)

And I agree...the back end analysis would definitely yield a more definitive answer than the front.

Kari said...

Aw, intestinal parasites!! That IS irresistable, lol. Did you get a new addition to your family?

Sylvana: You are linked! NIce blogsite!!:D

Sylvana said...

Lyvvie, so far he's still here.

Mrs. L, yeah, that's what I thought.

Kari, I'm still not sure if we are keeping him, but it is looking that way. Our friends are in love with him, so if we decide not to keep him, he'll at least have his choice of homes.

Michael, tanks ;)
