Chickie’s Cone of Shame #Caturday #TipperAndChickie

HELLO! My name is CHICKIE!

I’m a big girl now, acause Mommy said I had a Big Girl Operation. I had strings tied into my belly. The vet lady must know that I love to play wif strings! The vet lady played a game wif me and put this cone fing on so I couldn’t play wif the strings.

But I knew the trick to solve dat puzzle. I acted all pitiful so Poppy would feel sorry for me.

So he tookded the cone off.

And guess what I did! I tookded the strings out! They were all yucky, though, and no good to play wif.

Tipper: You weren’t supposed to take them out, goofus! They were holding your belly closed. SMH

I WAS GOOD AND SMART! I got to go back to the vet lady and get a prize! You don’t get a prize. I get a prize! I get to eat this yummy pink stuff two times a day. You don’t get any.

Tipper: It’s medicine.

It’s candy! And it’s yummy!

Tipper: Tell them what else you got.

That’s all.

Tipper: Tell them. Want me to tell them?

No! I tell!

Tipper: Well?

…I get to wear the cone again.

Oh–I most forgot: Mommy says she has a new Hot Flash on her Hot Flashes page, acause it’s the first of the monf, whatever all dat means.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Do you like to play wif strings? Did you ever play wif strings you weren’t appoza?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Yep. I know she doesn’t like it, and I understand that she doesn’t get why she has to, but that’s one of the sorrows of life, innit?

    Poor baby – the worst will be over soon. Unfortunately, Poppy prolonged the agony. Hope Chickie’s feeling better already.

      She was hurting today, so I gave her some of the vet’s pain meds, and she started playing rambunctiously. She even got her cone off! So I let her play while I watched her. But, when she started trying to wrestle Tipper, I put the cone back on and put her upstairs. Just a few more days…..

      Nope. The vet said we can take it off for her to eat and drink and play, as long as we’re watching her, but he won’t do it. One extreme to the other. SMH
