Funny story about "Joey"

The first time I met my now-kitty, I was getting a walkthrough of the cat shelter. He was in the basement with the lady's mom's cats (permanent ones), lounging on a cat tree. "This is Joey," she told me, and pointed out his stomach. His little tummy was shaved bare, and had a scar on it that looked suspiciously like a spay scar. "HE was spayed. Poor kitty."

Apparently after the very-embarrassed vet finished with his operation (a neuter, in the end), he said to the shelter lady, "Josie is really a bad name for a male cat." She replied, "His name is Joey."

I got his medical records last weekend, as we finished up the adoption process. There's a sheet that the vet filled out, his results for FelV and FIV, his approximate age, weight, etc. Under name it says "Josie" all scratched out and then written in, "Joey."

Poor Joey!! How embarassed that vet must have been! My goodness. Well, I'm glad that Joey has a loving Mom to help him forget about such memories. I don't know which Joey would consider worse: having the spaying operation started on him, or being confused for a girl! Oh, the humiliation~! What did the other boy cats say?
