Surgery Day

Today all 4 of my sweet baby kitties went to the vet to get spayed and neutered. All of my pets are fixed, yes even Little Bunny Fufu which most people seem to think is odd when I tell them he is neutered, but really it makes a rabbit such a better pet. I don't understand why everyone does not fix their rabbit, and it's much healthier for them as any pet. Anyway, every time I have to take one of the pets in for surgery I am a huge nervous wreak, it is so stressful to me, I can never sleep the night before & have anxiety all day the day of.

All the kittens ready for the vet. The poor babies have no idea whats about to happen.

I had  an extra scare today when I mentioned to the vet that Louie seemed to be losing weight. Then at the weigh in Louie weighed the least out of all the kittens, which he had always been the biggest before. The vet said weight loss is a sign of feline leukemia, one of the scariest things to any cat mother. I called my mom crying I was so worried about Louie, as well as my other cats since it is contagious and deadly. THANK GOODNESS Louie tested negative for feline leukemia, waiting for the test results was the longest 30 minutes of my life. Louie seems perfectly normal in every other way, so hopefully his weight loss is just a fluke, it could also just be the other kittens are suddenly growing faster than he is which makes it seem like he is smaller.  I am so so relieved that he does not have feline leukemia.

I am so so glad they are home and everything went really well, I have been dreading this day for a while so I am so glad it's over with and everything went good.
I love my little kitty babies so much.

  3. Janae', Your Mother told me about the kittens when we were walking yesterday. I'm so glad you posted about them because they were the first thing I thought about this morning and wanted to know if they came through the surgery alright. They will be fine with your loving care.

  4. Janae I'm so glad your babies are alright and back home. Sometimes I think this is harder on us than it is them. In a day or two you will probably have a hard time keeping them from jumping around and playing. Those things around their necks probably bother them more than the surgery. Poor babies, at least it is over.

  6. I have been reading your blog for quite a while now and I really enjoy it! I LOVE all your pets! I KNOW how you feel when the babies have to go in for surgery. I have 4 cats and all have them have been spayed and neutered. My last furbaby was dropped off at a friends farm. These friends could not have indoor pets and even though she had a barn to live in and food she probably would not have survived the Minnesota winter that we had. She is now living the life of luxury in our home! Thanks for sharing your home and babies....
