We're Number 1
Ontario is number 1, to be precise. Number 1 in North America. Number one for what? Best Living Standards? Tops in Steel Production? Best Canadian Major League Baseball Team? Nope.
We are number 1 for Rabies. Number 1 in the Western Hemisphere! Now that is something to be proud of. We used to be number 1 in the world, but were surpassed by India in 2000. Dang! On the entire planet earth, only India has a higher number of rabid animals than us. We rule! The Western hemisphere, anyway.
And why not? If you're going to be good at something, why not be the best? As Master Yoda would say, "Do, or do not. There is no try."
And so our little krit-bros had to have their rabies shots, as per the annual agreement with our vet, forced upon us by the Ontario government. I don't mind. Rabies shots makes kitties safe. It's especially important in Ontario, where every other squirrel is tearing through your screen door, raccoons are attacking polar bears and hummingbirds are foaming at the beak.
We killed two birds with one stone by getting the Advantage flea control pills on the same vet visit. She also smeared some "Fleas-Take-Off-Eh?" onto the back of little Doobie's head, thus, giving her the radical kitty-mohawk.
Doobie is starting a punk band. To anyone who planned on attending her first show, it has been postponed due to her backup singers all getting rabies.
