I regularly write the point of view of a cat and dog over at my writer's blog, and on occasion that involves a visit to the vet. Vile fiend is one of those terms the critters use to describe the vet, along with monstrous, evil, arch nemesis, demonic, and some less polite terms. Hence the title for today's blog.
The Glebe Pet Hospital is a vet's office. Cat decorations adorn the front windows.
The place also has two resident cats, who can be found on occasion snoozing in late afternoon sunlight. These two cuties couldn't have cared less about me taking shots of them- they were more interested in their latest nap of the day.
Those are well done cat renderings, all. Too bad the live ones are so indifferent.ReplyDelete
Way too many kitties and some of them are very scary looking. Especially the ones that are on their sides, with bent heads or just a head !ReplyDelete
But the live ones are sweet.
Fun decor! My vet has a resident cat also.ReplyDelete
View a cat, as decoration, it is difficult.ReplyDelete
I like the RED cat and the REAL one :)ReplyDelete
That's cats for you... :)ReplyDelete
I took a canine to the vet yesterday and the encounter with the resident cat was civil. Like the surprise change in post today! Tuned in anticipating a waterfall. Landed on some cute cats!ReplyDelete
I am thinking your vet favors cats over dogs. Interesting and cute post.ReplyDelete
so cute. i love the character. so fun to see how artists take and make cats with such talent! ( ;ReplyDelete
My kitty also loves to sleep against the sunny window. Love all the sculptures of cats.ReplyDelete
love their decor. the painted rock is awesome!ReplyDelete
I've always enjoyed the cats at our clinic. I've never met a cat that could resist a sun-puddle.ReplyDelete
It would appear that this vet has a thing for cats...small cats, this is. Fun and funky!ReplyDelete
Looks like a fun animal hospital!!! :)ReplyDelete
i like their cat art and the really kitties found some great napping spots!ReplyDelete
Nice cats, my favorite is the first.ReplyDelete
Cats are a bit like that, laid back 😊 I have a few cat statues myself William!ReplyDelete
I think the cats are missing the point with lots of cat decorations and two friendly cats! Now I know there's more going on than looking at the scenery. It's a good exercise to write from another point of view.ReplyDelete
That's cats for you. In their own world.ReplyDelete
Cute cats--especially the residents!ReplyDelete
It's nice when a vet has resident cats!ReplyDelete
@Kay: cats need their daily seventeen hours of sleep!ReplyDelete
@Parsnip: some are quite unusual.
@Linda: I remember the one my parents would go to also had a resident cat.
@Tomas: some of them are rather whimsical.
@Gunn: as do I.
@Halcyon: it's their way.
@Janis: I'll have another waterfall after the turn of the month.
@Janey: I've seen dogs brought in there, but it does seem to have a cat theme!
@Beth: it is, yes.
@Marianne: sun puddles can't be resisted.
@Tex: it's a great creative use of the rock!
@Deb: it's so nice and warm, after all.
@Lowell: that it is!
@Linda: I like looking in as I pass by to see if the two critters are about.
@Tanya: they soak up that late afternoon sun.
@Grace: cats are adorable. And the ultimate life form on the planet.
@Red: it is, yes, and I love getting into the heads of that dog and cat, who have become quite well developed at this point.
@MB: they are!
@RedPat: I imagine it can have a calming effect.
the 'cat' in the first picture doesn't look too happy...the real guys look blissfully unaware...ReplyDelete
Cool cats! :-)ReplyDelete
That is a great idea for your vet - cute title - and I like this touch of whimsy that greets you in the Windows.ReplyDelete
The second (fake) cat is my favorite!ReplyDelete
I love cats. One library I went to years ago had a resident cat. There's something calming about meeting a resident cat.ReplyDelete
You'd think the cats would appreciate that.ReplyDelete
@Geoff: they were deep in dreamland.ReplyDelete
@Revrunner: very cool!
@Denise: they're good decorations, I think the real cats tend to knock them over on occasion!
@Catalyst: it's a good one.
@Bill: I love cats too.
@Mari: cats are cats!
Cool cat decorations !ReplyDelete
Aw! One vet we visited, to adopt our white twins, had a horse skull in it!ReplyDelete
Nice cat decorations but I prefer the live ones. Meow!ReplyDelete
I have never seen a vet with cat decorations before. And why not.ReplyDelete
Do the cat patients get turned into decorations when things don't go well?ReplyDelete
@Jennifer: that's odd.
@Nancy: me too!
@Gemma: it makes sense to me.
@Wendy: definitely not.
