My two kitties (5 months and 7 months) are getting spayed tomorrow. I know they spay cats every day but not mine. I haven't had to deal with this in 15 years. My friend is meeting me for coffee after I drop them off or else I would probably sit in the parking lot crying until it was time to get them back. I deliberately held Allie back until Bailey was old enough so they could recover at the same time. It's better for them but it is killing me! I took 2 days off from work for this. Yup...that's me. Crazy cat lady! Nobody tell me any horror stories. But I need some of my fellow cat lovers to tell me how simple it is and how your cats were fine and that it's nothing to worry about.
Your feelings are like everyone elses. You're not a crazy cat lady. You are just a lady that loves her babies!! They might have to spend the night at the vets. Might I suggest when you get them home, keep them quiet. Don't overplay, like making them jump after a wand. Let them tell you what they want. Most likely they will sleep. There might be some vomiting from the anesthesia. Not to worry, each cat is different. One might be nauseous and the other no sign of it. But letting them eat, will help to get the anesthesia out of their system quicker. Watch the incision for any redness or infection. The vet will tell you what to look for. Good Luck, and thank you for spaying!! A lot of folks don't realize the importance of it.
I am a nervous wreck everytime.I called the vet every hour till they told me that they would call me if there was a problem. I didnt need to call again LOL.My girl Brooklyn was spayed in march. I didnt have one problem outta her. The main thing is keep them calm and quiet.
If we ban Pit Bulls and Rottweilers are humans some dont like next ?
Thanks for the support, cat people! I wouldn't dream of not spaying them even thought they are indoor kitties. I read about all of the things like breast cancer, ovarian cancer and uterine infections they could get when they are older if I don't do it. It's just that my Bailey cried and screamed when they just cleaned her leg to draw blood. But Allie would let anyone do just about anything they want without protesting. I feel like they are going to wake up in pain and in a cage and wonder why Mom did this to them. I really hope they are able to come home the same day though. I can't stand the thought of my babies spending the night there. They are both being super cuddly tonight. They must know I am upset. Time to take away the food and water and try to get some sleep!
My babies are fine!!! I just got the phone call and I was freaking out by now. It's been almost 5 hours since I dropped them off. I have been cleaning their litterboxes and getting their beds ready and trying SOOOO hard to be patient and not call the vet. There was this huge hesitation after I answered the phone and she said who she was. My heart SANK into my shoes. But then she said they were all set and I could come at 3:30 to get them. YAY!!! However, when I dropped them off this morning, it was a big shock to find out that it was $616 to spay 2 cats. I know my vet is pricey and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my babies. But I was expecting it to be like $300 for both, not $300 each. Thank goodness I have a VISA card!! LOL
