Isabella Tells Us About Her Trip To The Vets

Isabella Tells Us About Her Trip To The Vets

July 15th, 2011

My female owner thought that it was about time that I went to see the vet this week. I’m always up for a trip out and about, more people get to appreciate my glorious feathers and voice. But the vet? Could we not go somewhere more exciting, it is a little undignified to be wrapped in a towel and passed round. Those veterinary students just don’t know how to treat me properly and I don’t know how they can appreciate my glorious feathers when I’m all wrapped up like a mummy! There is one feather that is particularly bothering me and I thought that he might be able to suggest something to improve it. It’s a shame to have my beautiful appearance spoiled by such as obvious flaw. However I really wasn’t impressed with him at all, in fact I would have given him a good nip to let him know if he’d put his hands close enough to me. He did seem very scared of me, justifiably so, I have given nips for less serious offences than wrapping me in a towel before now. I have noticed that when my owners want the dogs to stop jumping and leave them alone the say “get off” and I thought it might be an appropriate time to try it out. Worked a treat, I was hastily put away and taken back to the comfort of my palace. I must remember that one for the future.

I really wasn’t impressed with my female owners treatment of me. She should know by now that I deserve much better treatment than that. I have made my feelings know. She will no longer be enjoying my company over breakfast or when I am out of my palace until I think she has suffered enough. I will not be performing any of those little “tricks” she likes so much and I definitely won’t give her the honour of being allowed to scratch my head until she shows that she understands her treatment of me was wrong. I have to say that she wasn’t demonstrating any repentance this morning, she seemed quite happy to enjoy her breakfast alone. She is obviously just being brave and trying not to let me see how much I have hurt her but refusing to give her any attention.

She has promised to get my outside cage up and sorted. It has been sitting outside in pieces for days and it is sheer laziness on her part that means I can’t enjoy any of the beautiful sunshine. If she does that then that will go some of the way towards making up for my disgusting treatment. I can see her now, trying to enjoy a coffee. Usually I’d go over for a head scratch but I won’t this time. She is putting such a brave face on it and pretending not to care. It almost makes me feel guilty.

Ohhhh what’s this. Walnuts. Now you’re talking. A few of those and things might be alright between us again. I feel like such a tart when she opens the bag, but I can’t help myself, I’d do anything for their nutty goodness. Till the next time fellow tweeters!
