Read my considered thoughts and opinions.

My nails are all trimmed short. It was difficult to resist my veterinary surgeon. They were catching in everything and making my life difficult. Sometimes I was hanging suspended by my claws and Lynettea had to come and pry me off. Once I was suspended from her arm, which she didn't like.

She forgot my rug when we rushed out for the taxi, so I felt extremely exposed. It isn't nice when dogs at the surgery can come and stare at you. My vet also checked me to see if anything else was wrong and weighed me. He said I was maintaining my weight but must have a little dementia, which I thought was quite insulting. Just because I am comfortable on the kitchen table doesn't mean I have lost my mind.

Today we went outside late morning into the sun. The sky is quite blue and the sun warmed my furs. I enjoyed myself sitting on a chair while I watched Lynettea scrabbling around in the garden. She has a focus on weeds which I find quite strange. Maybe she is the one with dementia.
Has she ever thought about cruelty to plants? Probably not.

Hm, I think the vet was a little quick to diagnose dementia... maybe he is getting a little fuzzy in the head himself.

Be careful of the plants. My hoomin says there is a movie called 'Day of the Triffids,' where plants do bad stuff.

Dear Diamond,
Hissy Old Licorice had some dementia. He would forget who I was. I found that sad.
So long as you know who Lynette is, You will be fine.

All kinds of cats, young and old alike, enjoy the kitchen table. Don't let that Vet insult you.

Very rude of the vet to diagnose dementia on normal cat behaviour of sitting on kitchen table. Thank you for coming to visit.

We agree with Sparkle. Dementia? Bah! Does your vet have cats? 'Cuz anyone with cats knows we get fixated on all sorts of diverse resting spots. And when we're older, we feel we've finally earned the right to settle where we wish! There is that!
We love you lots, dear.

Dementia? It's that vet that has dementia, dear Diamond. Who in the world would arrive at such a conclusion just because you enjoy the dining room table?
