Update: neighborhood cat minus "cojones"

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Tobey, the "neighborhood menace", is now missing his "family jewels". My vet agreed that it was best to act quickly, before the neighbor, Frau M., changed her mind. I dropped him off at 7 a.m., and picked him up about two hours ago, i.e., 5 p.m. CET. He's now back with his owner, a bit groggy and with bright green ears (I got him tattooed,too). The FeLV test was negative. We won't get the FIV results for a couple of days. He still has to be wormed, and has an appointment for his shots and microchip on Oct. 17th. He was actually pretty good, considering it was his very first visit to the vets' office. It's such a relief to know he's finally been neutered, and at the very least soon won't be leaving stinky calling cards all over the place. I gave Frau M. cans of his favorite salmon and chicken cat food to help his recuperation along. Maybe if he gets the stuff from his owner he'll stick a bit closer to home.

I'm so glad he was "taken care of" so quickly! Now it is just a matter of waiting the three weeks it takes for the testosterone to clear out of his system.

Tobey had his first shots today, and his FIV test was negative (not that I was expecting it to be positive, because the incidence is about 1% - 2% here, but I wanted to be sure). He's going to spend the night here in our spare bedroom, just in case he has an adverse reaction to the shots and has to go back to the vets'. He was so funny when I went to pick him up for his appointment - I thought he'd run and hide when he saw me, but he came right over and wanted to be picked up! Frau M. has apparently read the books I lent her, because she was asking me about the FIP vaccine. He tested positive for corona virus, no surprise, so that's not an option. His urine still stinks, but I guess we just have to be patient for a few more weeks. I've got a disposable litter box for him. Right now JC is sitting outside the door to the spare bedroom and hissing at every sound. I guess it's not going to be a quiet night!
