Home from the Hospital and Recovering

Well, we'd finally had it, so yesterday morning we headed to the hospital to put an end to it.


If course, by "it" I'm referring to our cat, Cinders, being in heat.
*Sorry, I couldn't resist*

Several months ago she went into heat for the first time. People had warned us to get her fixed before she got to that point, but no one had ever told us WHY. I'll tell you why...

She would meow and yowl all hours of the day and night. She'd get in, er, obscene poses that the kids thought were funny. But worse than that, she has been peeing, and even sometimes pooping, in random places around the house- like my DOWN COMFORTER! She's lucky I didn't skin her alive.

The last time it happened, when Fred got home I growled, "That cat has 2 options- sterilization or euthanization!"

Of course the second wasn't an option, so we got her scheduled to have her gender removed. Now she has joined the world of other "it's" and we can only hope it will mean the end of excess laundry (and frustration) due to the feline.

I was so PLEASED when we got our cat fixed, while I was pg he peed on EVERYTHING, it made me so mad. we had a scheduled appointment for him the day i had kaylee but we ended up having to reschedule, and since we've had him fixed he hasn't sprayed anything in the house.

Nice little "trick" and hopefully Mr. Kai arrives soon so you will be more comfortable. Glad you got the cat fixed...not fun at all to be cleaning up after that!

You are not very nice! I got all excited and then had my dreams dashed! :( Oh well I'm glad that you no longer have a kitty that pees randomly! If it makes you feel any better Lexie puked all over our down comforter........I was not pleased!
