I'm getting less and less thrilled with this 'baby brother' thing...

I had to go to the VET today!!! All cause I needed my mighty claws trimmed before the baby comes! The INDIGNITIES!

The vet was super nice, and the vet nurse came out to admire me... but that doesn't mean I have to like it!

(I did get extra treats when I got home, but that's beside the point...)

Noooooooo!!!!

You go to the vet to have your claws trimmed, Rumbles?!

Anyway, the probability is that the LC will have much sharper claws than you..... So watch out!

So sorry you had to suffer such indignity. At least you got well-deserved admiration and extra treats.

It is furry imPAWtant to be gentle around the little ones. A small price to pay - you're gonna love your new sibling, we just know it.

Punapippuri said...

Ahh- but they didn't remove your teeth so you can still chew him up, right ?

Ooops,what I mean is you can give him tender play nibbles and wash him gently.

Claw trimming though - that is an indignity. I'd use the nearest furntiure to resharpen them!

Oh, Rumbles, April 1st is going to be a big surprise day for YOU!!

I always say "Spare the claw, spoil the little interloper"

Tobi and Nimbus said...

Our mum works at a vet and always admires the exotic kitties that come in. She'd love to clip your claws for you! Your breed is not too common around these parts!

Old Kitty said...

Awwwwww beautiful and lovely Rumbles!!!! Me and Charlie think you are very very very brave and wonderful! Yay for you!!!!

We cannot wait to see your little brother!!!! Awwwwww you and him together are just so so so super cute! Take care

The Island Cats said...

Oh man, Rumbles! That hardly seems fair that you gotta got your nails trimmed because of the new guy. How you gonna be able to keep him in line if you don't have any weapons to use??

Lin said...

Oh, kitty pally, I hate to tell you that it is gonna get worse before it gets better. But it will be nice to have someone to play with again! :)

Mr. Pip said...

Just think you can teach him everything you know and shape him into a little Rumbles.

Your pal, Pip

Link Bartholomew said...

Uh oh. You must a be a kitty who puts up a fight when it's claw clipping time! If you'd be a good kitty, your human could do it for you and it would be a lot better than having a stranger do it.

Admiral Hestorb said...

Oh I hate having my claws clipped. I only allow mommy to do it when I am asleep and only 3 on each side, NO back claws allowed.

You're gonna love your little brother! Yes, you will. Promise.

Meow said...

Awww Rumbles, don't be upset. Because when that cute little ball of fur comes home, you will still be the handsomest kitty. We don't like getting our claws clipped but why make a fuss. Soon you will have that little brother and you will have someone to teach and play with. You are still the SMOOCHIEST MANCAT around.
SMOOOCOOCCCCCCHHHH!
Love you,

We get our nails trimmed at the vet's too, Mom says it is a lot easier on her:) We bet that vet nurse just oohed and aahed over your handsomeness, Rumbles.

Sweet Praline said...

My mom just trimmed my nails, so I can stay beautiful! I know you are going to be so excited when your new little brother comes bounding in . . . On second thought . . .

Marg said...

Oh noooos Rumbles. Not the nail trimming. Hope the little guy has his done too. When is the big day?? Hope you are ready Rumbles. Take care.

The Meezers or Billy said...

i hates clippy claws! Sammy Miles and Billy is always good when it comes to clippy claws, me? well, mommy can only get one nail at at time done! - Nicky

Brian said...

Oh I think all will be fine Rumbles, remember, you're #1, no matter what the little guy says!

Cat said...

Rumbles don't you let your mum and dad trim your claws?

Don't worry beautiful boy, having a baby brother will be so much fun that you will forget all about the vet :-)

Raymond and Busby said...

We're getting our clawrs cut this weekend. Blah, we don't like it either!

Furkidsmom said...

Mom does our claws and Cousin Trooper's claws. We don't think we would like an extra trip to the V-E-T.

pee ess - kitten claws are super sharp so watch out!!

Bear said...

Think of it as getting a spa manicure. Your beautiful nails will just be something else your new brother will be in awe of.

Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

A Spa Day, huh????????? We are purraying you will totally accept your new brofur.

Laila and Minchie said...

And there's nothing more painful than itteh bitteh kitteh nails! He better get his done too! Fair is fair!

Mariodacat said...

Well, of all the nerve. Trim claws for new kitten!! Seems to me new kitten will have sharper claws den you. It's NOT FAIR! I will protest on your behalf buddy.

The Cat From Hell said...

Baby Patches said...

Oh noes handsome, I so sorry you had to has your claws snipped, dat is no funs huh! But when is he coming, when is he coming? I finks you will be so happy he is dere to play wif, don't you?

*nosetaps*

BeadedTail said...

Oh you're in for so much more fun Rumbles!

Sparkle said...

You must be a hard case when it comes to nail trimming, Rumbles - my human does us all by herself! Even Binga!

Ginger Jasper said...

Hang in there my friend and it will be worth it.. Hugs GJ xx

CCL Wendy said...

Just wait, Rumbles! You might not be too happy at first, but you've got to give the little guy a chance. He's going to want to play, play, play -- and that could be lots of fun.

Get him to do your fetching for you! Little brothers are good for lots of things if you learn to use them wisely.

Carolyon said...

Getting your nails cut is pure evil! No matter how many treats and compliments you recieve!

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

Oh...sorry you had to go in the PTU and to the vets for a pawdicure...are you squirmy for your humans or try to put the bitey on them? At least you got some strokes and treats out of the whole thing.

And about new brudders? They really do grow on you...go visit Pierro + Miles to see just how much fun they can be!

I bet you will love it soon! :)

Junior and Orion said...

Rumbles, we bet you are going to love having a little brofur. It just might take you a bit of time to get used to him.

Daisy said...

I think it is worth a little clawr trim to be ready for your bebbeh brother!

ABBY said...

A pawicure is a good thing Rumbles!
Oh we can't wait to see the baby!!

Eric and Flynn said...

But how are you going to whap him with your claws all trimmed short?

Your Daily Cute said...

Um, it really doesn't sound like it was that bad...

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

you don't want to accidentally scratch your baby brother!!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Rumbles: This is UNACCEPTABLE. Nothing should inconvenience you in the least. It's the little intruder/interloper that should be inconvenienced! It's a rule: You were there first!

He might be fun, though....

Lorenza said...

Oh-oh!
Well.... now you are ready for him!
Glad you got lots of treats!
Kisses and hugs

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Oh dear! I remember this all too well. I hadta be "trimmed" before baby-Alfie arrives ~ so I smack-pawed him instead! Mwah-hahahahaha!

Huffle Mawson said...

Mum and dad tried that with me when Teddy arrived. It hasn't happened since. Just saying.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Will the kitten have his trimmed too Rumbles - we don't want him to give you an ouchie either!!
luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Cory said...

We have claw clippers in our house! When mom yells "manicures"...we know we are in trouble.

I bet you'll love little LC Minimew. We can hardly wait for him to come home and join you.

Pierro said...

When Miles came to our house, the beans treated him like he was my new toy and I was still the boss. He got plenty of attention but I got all of the praise.
Just remember Rumbles, you are the boss, and a new kitty sibling will be pretty fun... just go slow, sometimes really slow

The Whiskeratti said...

Uh oh. What else will happen to you, dude?

Elyse K said...

Dear Rumbles, I agree with Mr. Pip... now you can teach LCpl. Kitten everything you know! A pawicure is nice for da humans too.

Hugs and head bumps,
Elyse and Cassie Cat

"The Boys" and Karen said...

Well if your get treats, that clawing can't be all that bad. Mmmm, on second thought, maybe so after all.

You sure look very regal in that photo.

Kea said...

The mom can do a few of our claws at a time, when we're half-asleep, but when we have to go to the v-e-t for something else, she takes the opportunity to have the techs do it. :-P

You might not be excited about your new baby brother, but we sure all! Can't wait to see tons of pics!!!

The Crew said...

You'll be a role model for the new little guy, so it's a good idea to look your best.

CCL Wendy said...

Little wonder they admire you at the V-E-T, Rumbles! You are quite the handsome mancatty now. Even Dante is becoming jealous.

You have the potential to shape your little brother -- it's a power that you should choose wisely. Just think about it!
