Keep the Super Glue Away from the Cat!


My mother - - god bless her. She has a heart as big as gold. But when she does some things - that's when I know for sure I'm her daughter.

About a month ago - I gave my mom a Yorkie puppy for her birthday. She's the cutest little thing (the dog) and they quickly became attached. Being it that it's time for Lucy's ears to point up - and they are not..mom got advice from Vet and books on how to tape them so that in a week or so..they'd be all perky and standing up.

I gave her the grooming shears on Sunday morning. On Monday morning I get a call from mom "COME GET THESE SHEERS OUT OF MY HOUSE"!!! She was serious and sorta laughing at the same time. I asked what had happened to the dog - - - well...apparently you have to shave off the hair from the ears...so the tape will stick. While she was shaving the ears - Little Lucy decided to shake her head. VIOLA' - just like that a nice size V chunk was gone from her little ear! Well you can imagine the mess and the hysterics...and the puppy is fine - we now just should have named her "Notch". It looks funny.

So to help my mom get past the perils of motherhood.. I reminded her of my story!!

I had taken a stray cat in. After doing this I realized that she was preggy (go figure). We went a few months, through the birth and loss of all the kittens. After that I decided to spend the money and haver her fixed. Yes - I basically bought a stray cat. When I took her in to have her fixed, I wanted to have her front claws taken out so that she wouldn't destroy the furniture. But she was already too old to have that done and it would cause damage and pain.

Vet recommended Soft Paws. They are like rubber caps for your cats nails. And they work GREAT. Each package comes with a little tube of glue and like 20 caps. Well there is only enough glue for 1 set of application. (Marketing gimmick is what I think). During these years I was making only enough money to get by. And sometimes not that. So these Soft Paws were a luxury. Molly the cat didn't mind them and they worked! But when it came time to put a new set on, the little tube had all dried up. SO - being the GENIUS I was.... I decided I'd uses Super Glue - but only a drop in each one!!

I must mention - - I'm allegic to cats.

So we sat down on the sofa...all the parts in place - - get it done and get it over with. Well Super Glue spreads...so when you put a drop (or 2) in a tiny little cap and press it on a nail - - OUT comes the excess. All over the cats feets/paws/my hands....everywhere. And then, because I was working so close to her - I started sneezing like all get out. Before I knew it...her paws were super glued dried, I had it all over me as well... and there she sat looking at me.

Blink Blink - Bitch - Blink Blink
Blink Blink - Get this shit off me - Blink Blink
Blink Blink - Call the Humane Society - Blink Blink Blink - Bitch - Blink Blink

Well the only way I know how to get Super Glue off is to file it down. At least that's what I'd done in the past when I got it on my finger, or the counter. So, out came the emory board - - I had to hurry...she did not look happy at all!! And during this, I have mom on the phone -- of course laughing hysterically.

I'm happy to say - - Molly is still with me, and still has her claws...and seems to have forgiven me.

Lucy will forgive Mom as well

Animals love us Unconditionally - - Isn't that Nice?!!

Reminds me of the Far Side cartoon where the dog is in the car all happy and smiling telling his buddy dogs in a musical voice: "I'm going to get tutored!"

It is a good thing we can't hear what they really think.

Sounds like it was a real "Lucy" moment!

There was a reason in why she named her Lucy - - and now we know. She will fit in perfectly with my family!
