She's a darling little orange rescue kitten and she's going to be spayed on Tuesday.
There is no question that she's getting done, I know why it has to be done and I'm 100% happy for her to be spayed.
But I have to put her in her cat box all hungry and bewildered, take her to the vet, hand her over and leave her there and I feel so so mean. And our other cat is older and was neutered when she came, so she won't even have her stepsister along for comfort
She will forgive me, won't she? Please tell me it will be all right...
Yes- if it's any consolation, I heard She Who Must Be Obeyed the Chief Vet Nurse actually cooing at Seniorboy when he was behind the scenes after his last GA. The staff at the practice will treat her with great love and care.
When she lives a comfortable life to a decent age, not worn out from having litter after litter of kittens, she may just forgive you ... (Plus you don't have to put up with the ear-splitting yowling of a queen on heat.) Second cozie's advice on post-op pampering. Just something to be aware of - when one of my cats has been to the vet, the others can be a bit "off" with them for a while when they return (prob. smell different/strange), but it all soon settles down again. All the best for Tuesday.
Just picked my little ginger boy up from the vets after neutering. He's sixonths old, I felt the same and wanted to stay at the vets to make sure he was ok, a lovely vet nurse had to gently shoehorn me out of the door but he seems fine since coming home bit groggy and quiet but more concerned with his litter tray as I washed it out and put fresh litter in it so of course he needs to pee on it and flick it all about
Thank you all so much for your lovely comforting words! Just to let you know that my little cat went to the vet today and has come home fine - abut shaved and sad, but she's thrilled to be home. Thank you again, you're so lovely xx
