The BIG Day

Tomorrow is a big day for both Ginger and Pepper. I have made an appointment with a vet at Puchong to bring 2 of them for spaying. Sending them in at 10:00am and picking them up after work at about 6:30pm. I have purposely chosen Friday so that I have time to monitor them at home over the weekend.


I am really quite nervous. I know.... I know....it’s a simple standard operation that the vet probably has done countless of times. But yet, I can’t help but be nervous.


A lot of people have actually asked me,


‘Why spay your cats? That is so cruel!’


Or


‘Oh, they are so cute, why spay them? Why don’t you let them have cute little babies?’


I gotta admit that initially, I had intention to breed Ginger and Garlic and have their cute little babies. But after a lot of thought and after involvement with SPCA, I realized that there are just too many stray and homeless animals out there that desperately need a home. Hundreds of animals have to be put to sleep every month (from SPCA, PAWS, DBKL, etc) because nobody wants them. The world doesn’t need anymore kittens or puppies. If I want kittens or cats, I'll just go to SPCA or PAWS.


I just can’t wait for this whole ordeal to be over and Ginger and Pepper are fully recovered. Right now, I am still debating whether I should let Ginger and Pepper roam the house as usual or keep them both in my spare room for a few days. This is to prevent Sesame from pouncing and wrestling with them on their first few days of recovery.


Oh boy, I just know I’m gonna have sleepless night tonight.



P/S This is my first post without a picture. Will post more pictures next week, after the big operation when I am much calmer and relaxed!

I'm glad you've made this wise decision. It must be nerve wrecking for you too, but I'm very sure they'll get through this fine :)

I would suggest keeping them in a separate room from Sesame, just so that their surgical wounds would heal faster. In any case, good luck to you and your babies! :)

I hope things went well. You're right about too many homeless and unwanted Cats. That's why Mom got Catzee. Nobody wanted her and Mom was doing her good deed.

Daisy said...

Just checking back to see if everyone is ok!

Just Sharlene said...

Both Ginger and Pepper are doing fine. Thanks everyone for their kind concern. I will send all your best wishes to both Ginger and Pepper.

Gotta rush out for a meeting. Will be posting their updates later in the day.
