For those who

into the office on a leash,
which in reality may be any-
thing from a length of chain
to a tattered bit of clothesline
or an old tie. But cat owners,
recognizing the fact that
kitty may become phobic
while waiting in a small room
filled with dogs, usually opt
for more protective measures.
Enter the "kitty carrier," an
ordinary cardboard box that
has been punched with air
holes and imprinted with the
picture of a cat. Someone is
making a lot of money selling
those boxes. Hats off to the
inventive, "withit" looking
couple at my vet's who toted
their cat in an empty Gallo
wine carton. From the look of
owners and feline, neither
man nor beast was, as they
say, feeling any pain.
Other pet owners would not
consider submitting their pet
to the indignity of a leash or
cardboard box. Like the cat
owner who kept her sick fe-
line wrapped in a fuzzy
blanket, cradled in her arms
like a baby. Or the 300- pound
man who saw no need for
blankets, leashes or boxes
because each of his volum-
inous suit jacket pockets
served quite nicely as a cozy
nest for a trembling Chi-
huahua. Or the stout woman
wearing the zip front parka
whose noticeably well-en-
dowed chest quickly deflated
upon the removal. of two
squirming puppies.
But the mystery award on
my last trip to the vet's goes
to the woman who approach-
ed the receptionist's desk car-
rying a battered suitcase.
After several minutes of con-
sultation, the woman careful-
ly placed the suitcase next to
a bench and sat down to wait.
All eyes were on that suitcase.
Was it a python? An ant
farm? a nocturnal predator of
some kind? Whatever animal
was inside, I was sure the
case had no discernible air
In a few minutes, an at-
tendant reunited the woman
with her aged but obviously
beloved terrier, which had
evidently been boarded at the
vet's while the woman was on
vacation. The suitcase? Prob-
ably full of dirty clothes. I
wasn't the only one to breathe
a sigh of relief. Spend a few
hours at the vet's office and
you're ready to believe any-
