Don't do this to a cat. . .
The other day I went to the pharmacy because it was the only thing open in my neighbourhood due to the motamaraat. I was bored. I bought some hand cream and on the counter they had chewing gum and muscle rub on display so I bought some of those too.
Today Sara was all excited about the muscle rub. She was having a nice time sniffing it and she kept asking me a million questions about it.
'Where is this made?'
'What is in this stuff?'
'Why is the bottle so small?'
'How much did you pay for it?'
She was being rather annoying and after a while I just ignorred her. A while later the kids said there was something wrong with the cat. It was drooling and of course trying to hide behind my computer. I yelled at the kids to grab the cat - the last thing I need is a sick cat throwing up behind my computer.
They caught the cat and we were trying to figure out what was wrong. Yusef said it smelled like medicine and I got all in a panic thinking the cat had got out and ate poison somewhere.
Yusef said 'Hey mom, it smells like muscle rub!'
Wouldn't you know it? Sara had put muscle rub all over the poor animals nose. It's the kind of stuff that has capsicum (otherwise known as red pepper) in it. We cleaned up the cat, but it is still not very happy. I hope it feels better tomorrow.
