Our cat Scout nuzzling up to Emma while she wears her bib

Emma had a scheduled visit to the vet today for shots which she didn’t end up getting. We had noticed some bumps under her fur so they shaved the area and are going to run some tests to see what might be causing them. In the meantime, Emma gets an ointment rubbed into the area, antibiotics, and this lovely bib. Scout, who still has one more week of antibiotics her own self, came over to commiserate. Emma may not look too thrilled to have her moment of indignity posted to the web, but she joins some mighty fine company.

She did manage to get out of the bib earlier tonight, I heard a loud thump in the litter box room, then Emma came running out sans bib and I found the bib rubbed into some fresh droppings in the litter box.

She knows how to make a point, I’ll give her that.


  1. No, they thought it might take a couple of weeks.

    Emma says it is due to BDS (Bellyrub Deficiency Syndrome), but I find that hard to believe.

  2. you should probably take a leave of absence from work just in case; it could be those crucial missing rubs during the daytime hours.
