Dangerous Animal

Miss Skitters’ Vet Chart



A red “dangerous animal” warning label adorned my cat’s vet chart.

My sister’s cat, Rascal, boasted this same badge of honor on his chart.


Which got me to thinking …which feline was the worst patient? This thought warrants a story, but until then, here are some highlights of their escapades:

  • Terrifying the vet, who suits up with gloves over elbows for safety.

  • Distemper-like bubbly foam running out of mouth and down chest.

  • Hysterical Shrieking

  • Scratching

  • Hissing

  • Maniacal Growling

  • Leaping at vet to draw blood

  • Whirling around the room like the Tasmanian Devil

But Rascal had an additional offense on his record:

  • Lifting leg and hosing down the vet and staff

We have a winner! Rascal.
