Dropped my boys off to get neutered today.....

What a nervous wreck I am. This is my first time with them away... I almost couldn't leave the vet without crying! I can't believe how attached you can become to these little lovebugs... Please keep my little guys in your thoughts and prayers today. Unfortunatley I lost a kitty once to an anesthesia reaction so I just can't get that feeling out of my head.. but I'm trying to think happy thoughts and hopefully the vet will call with good news soon.

take care
jen

Dropped My Boys Off

Hi Jennifer -- You are doing the right thing by having your cats neutered. Sometimes cats have physical problems that cause reactions during anesthesia. However, most young cats who usually are healthy come through it just fine. The best thing you can do for your cats right now is to keep a positive attitude -- just know in your heart that they are fine -- believe it. When the negative thought comes that they are not fine, reject it and keep saying they are fine until you believe it inside. Thank God for being with them (they are his creatures also) and taking care of them. We'll be looking for your report later telling us they are both home with you and are doing just fine.

Glad to hear everything went well.

I'm emotional when my babies have to stay at the vet for any reason. I always bawl like a big baby...so don't feel bad.

Thanks everybody! I guess now it's just up to me to try to keep them out of trouble and relatively calm the next few days while they heal...... any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

When I had my boys neutered back in August, they were still a bit groggy and listless for about a day and a half after they came home. My suggestion to you is to just watch them. The calmness will take care of itself...unless you happen to have two rambunctious boys on your hands.

Wow, they are anything but lissless. they are climbing the walls.. playing, running, jumping.. I had to put them back in their carriers in hopes they will nap.

It's going to be a long night.

Remember, too, that neutering is less invasive than spaying, so your boys will recover quickly. My boys were reacting more to the anesthesia than the neutering. When the anesthesia was completely out of their systems...watch out!
