My kittens (brother and sister) are getting neutered tomorrow. I know in theory they'll be fine, but feeling a bit nervous for them :/ Please tell me they WILL be fine!

Every GA carries a slight risk but there are thousands of these ops undertaken every day. They'll be fine. smile How old are they?

They'll be fine. They might be a bit wobbly when they get home, her more than him as it's obviously a bigger operation for a female, but they recover amazingly quickly.

Thanks both! Forgot to mention they're 5 months old. So they still seem like babies even though they're acting more like teenagers! wink

AnotherEmma Wed 21-Jan-15 22:46:52

Took this photo a few weeks ago and they've grown since!

cozietoesie Wed 21-Jan-15 22:51:49

Adorable pair. smile

DramaAlpaca Wed 21-Jan-15 22:54:21

Oh they are gorgeous! Different colours but matching ears smile. I'm guessing the black one is female & the ginger one is male?

From the look of that boy, I don't think the neutering is a day too soon, either!

It needs doing man. Mine was booked in but had her first season before the appointment. What a bloody racket.. who knew such noise could come from such a small animal.

Exactly right Drama! And yes cozie he will definitely be a bit lighter after the op... Not that I look too closely but they're hard to miss!!

cozietoesie Wed 21-Jan-15 23:04:02

It's not the pom-poms I was thinking of but the look in his eyes - and the biceps !

AnotherEmma Wed 21-Jan-15 23:26:10

LOL at pom-poms!! Yes I know what you mean, he's definitely looking more adult lately! Growing into those ears smile

DramaAlpaca Wed 21-Jan-15 23:29:42

Pom-poms grin

Gorgeous cats. Sure they will be OK, lots of TLC and dreamies. All the best.

Aww my little love is going in tomorrow too and I'm worried but know it needs doing. Fingers crossed they all have a speedy recovery and settle down a bit

AnotherEmma Thu 22-Jan-15 12:05:40

We just heard from the vet and they're fine grin Ops went well and they're sleepy but awake. DH is going to collect them in an hour or so.
away yours will be fine too! Male or female?

cozietoesie Thu 22-Jan-15 13:29:20

That's good. smile

Is there to be someone home this afternoon to supervise the Terrible Twosome?

awaywego1 Thu 22-Jan-15 13:35:51

Yay! glad the op went well..they'll be glad to get home smile Shes a girl and very keen for a boyfriend at the moment so she's ready for the op!

DramaAlpaca Thu 22-Jan-15 13:38:35

Glad it went well.

ah dont worry, our 2 were actually quite funny and groggy when they came back, walked into skirting boards and doors. just try make sure they dont jump around for the day and have bland food - i boiled a couple of chicken breasts as the meat and biscuits are too flavoured and can make them sick after the anaesthetic smile

AnotherEmma Thu 22-Jan-15 18:46:19

cozie Yes, luckily DH works from home so they had company! He tells me they've been a bit mad this afternoon - we can't stop them jumping up sadly :/ Poor Mamba has a big bald patch now! away hope your girl gets on ok, she'll be fine smile

AnotherEmma Thu 22-Jan-15 18:55:29

PS Thank you all for the moral support! smile

RubbishMantra Thu 22-Jan-15 19:24:06

Aw bless them, glad they're fine.

My little lad went loony and ran amok when I brought him home after his 'procedure'.

awaywego1 Fri 23-Jan-15 08:41:50

She's gone in..scared..hope she's ok sad

cozietoesie Fri 23-Jan-15 09:51:24

She should be fine. smile Are they to phone you when the op is over?

(I should mention, by the way, that 'pom-poms' is issey's phrase which some of us have just adopted. Maybe it's a Yorkshire thing. grin)
