Top : Panini in Petco carrier headed into the Michigan Humane Society.
Yaaay! Panini is spayed I'm so happy!....After yowling, meowing, crying and chewing extra holes in her carrier box while riding in the back seat...I feared she may react in a bad manner out of fear and nervousness and the more she cried and chewed, the more nervous I became, because a few days before surgery a receptionist over the phone asked me about her character..." Is she a friendly cat?".. Yes I responded.
Now I'm scared and talking to myself...." Oh God please don't let Panini jump out of the box and run away" Pleezzz.. don't let her scratch me, the receptionist... her assistant or the Vet.
Panini begins to hiss...followed by more yowling"...My sister and mother who agreed to accompany me..began to talk and sing to her..It was a car full of noises and bad nerves and I was glad our destination wasn't very far! ...
A clueless.. yet suspicious Panini is taken out of the box.
Panini isn't sure what all the touching is all about and her eyes are as big as saucers!
When we arrived I was surprised to see Panini was not the only cat for this Sunday appointment.
about 10 people were already in line when we arrived at 8:30am.....Some owner's had one cat while a few others had two... all were yowling and meowing as they peered out of their carriers... As I signed in and took my place in line I noticed Panini had fallen silent........
And she had remained so.. until they called her name to go in to see the Vet.... To my relief she handled the entire event very well...No one was bitten or scratched.
At 3:30pm I returned to bring Panini home and I am very pleased so far with her surgical outcome...She only needed a small incision and has dissolvable sutures..Yay!
I am instructed to give her ..her medication and watch her closely..making sure she doesn't aggravate her stitched area by over licking it.. If she does she will need a collar.
I'll update later as she recovers.
Bottom left: Poor Panini is not feeling so well..but she'll recover soon... in a couple of weeks she'll be fine.
