I, Atticus have given Melanie the day off and am writing her column today. The following is an account of what happened when I was taken to the vet to have my “special surgery”. My life was forevermore changed, and this is the real reason that I am content.

I was taken to the vet, and left by the people that I thought loved me. I sat in the cage waiting, this can’t be good. Suddenly someone came into the room and took me out of the cage. I was placed on a very cold table and I heard a voice say “everything will be fine; we are going to make you sleepy Atticus”.  I began to drift off to sleep. Then the Doctor shook my shoulder and said “come on Buddy, we are going somewhere.”

I climbed into the cab of his truck, and the Doctor let the window down on my side. We pulled onto the highway, and I felt the wind blowing my fur. I noticed that there were cats everywhere. The females were pretty and they were all looking at me.

We arrived at a place called Tin Can Alley. Empty milk cartons and tuna cans littered the exterior. We walked inside and sat beside a window. The air was heavy with the scent of cat nip and this cute little calico in the corner was eyeing me. The Doctor ordered a bowl of milk for me to share with the calico. It was accompanied by a small bowl filled with cat nip. I inhaled the scent and felt like dancing. The cute little calico joined me, every cat was jealous. I must have been dancing really well because everyone was laughing.

The Doctor said that it was time to go; it felt like we had not been there long.  The calico waved goodbye to me. I climbed up into the cab and fell asleep. When I woke up, I was on the cold table. The Doctor told me that I would be fine. The room was spinning and I felt funny. Was it all a dream?No more cat nip for me ever!

My life has been different since then. I smile when I think about that night and that cute little calico, we danced the night away. I don’t remember her name but she was something else! I am forever more grateful to the good Doctor, he changed my life. I am happy and content, my life is good.
