Aiko: Mama, the cats and dog are itching themselves something crazy… Did dad get any medication yet?
Suzu: He’s at the store right now
Ana: When can we go to Busch Gardens?
Kagero: Yah who cares if they have fleas, they can wait
Aiko: Oh shut up… You know thats not nice Kage. I dont want my Baby Buyo to be ithcy -.-
Suzu: We’ll leave after your father gets back… hey, where are Kasu and Eizan?
Ana: Playing with Kii-chan (Kirara)
Kagero: Dad’ll be back soon so I’ll go tell them to get ready
(leaves the room)
(Chiaki gets home with a flea medication for the dog and for the cats… Its Hartz Advance Gaurd)
Aiko: Yay, daddys home. Baby Buyo looks like shes gonna rip her skin off…
Chiaki: Dont worry I’ll take care of it
Aiko: Will it be okay to use an over the counter?
Suzu: Oh stop bothering your father
Ana: C’mon Aiko lets go get ready to leave
(they leave and Chiaki takes Kirara, Buyo, and Sammy out into the lanai and applies the medication while Kasu, Eizan, Kagero, Aiko, and Ana are getting ready to leave. After everything is taken care of they all pile into the van and head to the ammusement park. The cats and dog are left outside in the lanai…)
Aiko: I’m worried about our pets -.- Was it really a good idea just to leave them there?
Ana: Eh they’ll be fine
Kasu: You worry to much shortie
Aiko: -.- hey, im 9 days older than you -.- shut up about the tallness.
Eizan: Well you are short.
Aiko: Just shut up. Anyway I’m still worried about Sammy Kii-chan and Baby Buyo…
Kagero: Haha, you are such a worry-wart loser… 😛
Aiko: You know what!!! (she forgets all about her worry and starts chasing her brother)
Chiaki: We’ve been here for a few hours, anyone else ready to go home?
(it was already late, around 8 pm, Suzu and Chiaki were tired out from watching 5 kids all day)
Kasu: Aww, c’mon… You dont wanna leave do you Aunt Suzu?
Suzu: Aha… uh… hmmm…
Aiko: Ah okay fine… Yo, chibi ppl and tall loser (referring to her siblings) Lets go, we’re leaving.
(They leave the amusement park and head home, Kasu and Eizan dont even bother doing anything and immediately crash out in Eizans room… But Aiko and Ana went looking for their cats… only to find something terrible…)
Aiko: Kii-chan??? Whats wrong with Kii-chan shes on the ground shaking violently… And Buyo’s face and paws are twitching horribly…
Ana: Kii-chan… -she goes over to her cat- Kii-chan Kii-chan whats wrong…
(she goes to touch her cat, who suddenly begins crying out in pain… She started having a seizure, flailing herself violently)
Aiko: MAMA!!! DAD!!! HURRY SOMETHINGS WRONG WITH KIRARA SHES HAVING A SEIZURE!!!
(immediately everyone came running. Kagero went to check on the dog, who was perfectly fine, and even Eizan and Kasu came running)
Chiaki: Damn… the normal vet isnt open this late… The nearest emergency vet is 30 minutes away…
Ana: I dont care!!! Help Kii-chan!!!
(Chiaki grabbed the cat and quickly put her in a kennel, rushing off in his truck)
Aiko: What about Buyo? Shes twitching horribly and she dosent look too good…
Suzu: We’ll take her if she dosent get any better
Aiko: But what if it gets worse then we cant help her?????
Kasu: Yeah she looks like shes dying
Ana: we have to take her too!
Eizan: … (to proud to say anything in concern for the cat)
Kagero: Mom, we need to get her to the vet
Suzu: Stop pestering me!!! This is soo stressful will you guys stop bothering me!!!
Aiko: But shes my cat!!!
Suzu: Okay fine!! Lets go, but you have to hold her, we dont have another kennel
(Aiko holds her cat in her arms as she, Suzu, and Ana pile into the van. The boys stayed at home)
Aiko: Baby baby it’ll be alright… Itll be alright…
(suddenly Buyo started crying out like Kirara… and also began going into a seizure)
Aiko: Buyo!!! BUYO!!! Please please!!!
(she held her cat tight and tried to calm her down in a desperate attempt, crying as her cat cried in pain. After a few minutes Buyo calmed down again and they drove to the vet hospital, where they informed them about the flea and tick medication they used and its side effects on cats. They took the cat and washed the medication off, and informed them of the poor state Kirara was in… They brought them to go see her… she looked horrible. They had to do a lot to sedate her, and her eyes were wide and painful)
Vet: Listen, Mr. Fuyuko (chiaki), Buyo has a chance, but… honestly… there isnt much of a chance that… Kirara will live…
Chiaki: I… see…
Vet: I’m sorry Ana, she was your cat, right?
Ana: She IS my cat >_< and she is gonna live (crying)
Aiko: C’mon Ana… lets… go wait in the car…
(the next morning Aiko and Suzu went back to get Buyo… They also saw Kirara, who was still in horrible shape)
Aiko: poor Kii-chan… Im so sorry…
Suzu: Lets go…
(they left and took Buyo home, who seemed to be severely drugged and could hardly walk)
(The next morning they recieved news that Kirara had gone into cardiac arrest and died the night before…)
(Buyo stayed in her sad state for over a month before regaining her posture, and even after that, the cat seemed brain damaged… She acted like a little kitten even though she was almost 3 years old *previous to this she had been one of those calm, collected cats who was always self sufficient*)
Hartz Advance Gaurd took Kii-chan away from me and my sister, and cost our parents over 1000 dollars in vet bills, and I will never forgive that -.-
