Nikki's Story

Hi! It's Nikki here. Angelina says I have to tell you all myself. Of how once upon a time I had this ugly scab on my stomach. It was ugly and I hated it. It was also itchy and throbbing and painful sometimes. It also hampered my otherwise healthy lifestyle as it made me spend time more on Mama's bed or our red sick bay....errr.....chair. 

Hmmm....what happened was, I was walking with a limp. I don't really remember what happened then. Did I fall off something as I was doing my routine exercise? Anyway, Mama and Dad took me to the vet. They prodded and did an X-ray on my foot. It was painful, OK!  Well, I didn't whimper or anything (hmmm...surely not good for my street cred) but I bit whoever dares touch my leg. Then the vet gave some medicines that Mama forced me to swallow every morning. For the leg, they said.

Then I started to feel itchy around my tummy. I don't know what it was so I started scratching and licking and scratching and licking ....until....a scab began to develop and started becoming bigger and bigger and bigger. Mama had a scare coz that's where the vet had previously cut to spay me. Yeah...so I've never been kissed....(Tom and Mike and Ralph don't count as they're my father and brothers).... 

So off we went to the vet again and this time they said I somehow had an allergic reaction to the medicines they gave me for the hurt leg (which was just a minor injury in the first place). Hahaha....Mama was sooooo ready to sue the vets. So, they pleaded and didn't charge for the second visit. So I get some kind of cream to lather on the scab and somehow it reduced the size. Phew! I'm so over it now. Actually not coz I'm still talking about it now....three years later.
Look at that ugly thing on my stomach! 
Close up of the ugly thingy. Yuks!
Aaahh...still have to keep it clean and sanitary and germ free....
And....as for why I get the nickname "koala"....the incident with the leg and scab made me less active for a while. And so I became somewhat rotund, chubby, tubby...whatever. Well, better "koala" than if they were to call me "telly tubby" I guess.
Do I look like a koala? No, right?
So, there you have it. My story.

The second sexiest girl in the house (after Angelina, of course),
Nikki Lauda Kidman-Cruise (that's my full name.....sigh....)

Euuuuh! So glad it's cleared up and gone. Bad Vet for not doing the right things with the right medicines.

So now we start to loose some weight and slim down a mite more? That an awful thing to say I know, but tubby kitties just doesn't have the fun slim kitties have, well, actually, they get more time with the beans and that is a major plus in my book. Course I'm a bean and I may be a mite prone to an inflated ego .... whatever. I think I need to hush .....

Love from Buddy, Miki, Tegar, Smokey, Miss Princess, and Rowdy, and the beans Lisa and Roy in SouthWoods NE MS USA.

Gosh..it still looks painful despite three years have passed. Poor Nikki! Hope the wound will heal nicely soon (and not for another 3 years!).

Dell : I once was nearly balded when the vet gave me an injection for something.
Huh...awful vet.

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Gina,
The wound on the stomach is healed....but not the wound in Mama's heart! Know what she told the vet? "My Nikki maybe just another cat to you but she's my precious child. Get it?" OK, maybe you should take my Mama to that beautiful spa..... purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Dell,
I think we should go and check what they're teaching at those vet science schools, eh? purrrr....meow!
