Faking It

Ever since he was a kitten, Burnie has had a limp. Some days it is more pronounced than others. The vet has seen him, but there doesn't seem to be a problem. The vet says that cats are very adaptable and he can live with it.

I'm planning on going away for about a week in two weeks. Since I'm trying not to check my bags, I thought I'd bring them in from the garage to get an idea of the size. Of course, both Crash and Burn noticed and they're not too happy.

Burnie had been doing very well lately, he's been running around the house with no problems. But, as soon as I brought the bag into the house, he started limping. It's a very pronounced limp and he's not running.

I'm beginning to think he's also an actor. He has been known to limp very badly whenever I return from a trip, but this is the first time BEFORE I go away. He's trying for the sympathy vote to keep me home. Of course, it won't work, I'm on to his tricks.

that is just wild!
I had no idea cats were that aware.
Although our cat runs and hides under the bed if someone rings the doorbell (or knocks)
