He had been really sick with an upper respiritory infection, he was sneezing when I adopted him and he got soo sick afterwards and took almost 2 months to get rid of the URI. I had to reschedule his neuter 2 times on the advice of my vet and I had become so attached to him. He is my baby! Anyway he did fine. I think it was worse on me than on him. I called like they said at 3:30 and the girl at the desk told me he had to stay another night cause he was still coming out of the anesthesia but I begged her to let me come right before they closed to see if he was ready to come home and he was. It was just a nerve wracking day, for me. I'm sure your little one will do fine, I will keep her and you in my thoughts!
It's amazing the number of kittens that leave our Humane Society with URIs. Cosette had one when I adopted her, too; she was a little 7-week-old itty bitty thing at the time- talk about nerve-wracking. That is horrible that your little Griffin had his for 2 months!!!! And that is even more horrible that he had to stay the night after his surgery! I bet that was too tough on you. Did you find that the staff there was very sympathetic to you? It's my observation that, while they care about animals, they could care less about their human owners! How long did it take Griffin to recover from the neuter?
Thank you for commiserating with me

Thank you Tina and Sam
Tina, like you, I didn't sleep at all last night. Every time Eponine would jump up on the bed (bless her sweet heart) I'd think it was Cosette. This morning, getting ready for work, it was so upsetting not to see her scampering about
Just an update: they said yesterday that her spay would take place at 7:30 (of course I said a prayer for her at that time!) and should take about 7 minutes. Well, since it's after 9am now, since they haven't called me yet I take that as a good sign. But I won't really know much until I can call at 3:30pm (on the dot of course!). Keep your fingers crossed y'all!
Nervous wreck, over and out!

Hugs and sympathy, I know just how you feel - Jazzie was done three weeks ago and they were having a very busy day, said they'd ring me by two pm... by three, with still no call I was a nervous wreck! She was fine though. I was so convinced she'd be traumatised by it, and no matter how good I know the vet staff are I still worry. As it was, she came back having been thoroughly cuddled, comforted and looked after, was totally unstressed and when we went back for her post op check up she made it clear she didn't think of the vets as somewhere nasty things happen, she was very relaxed, which is a huge reassurance. I asked for good pain relief as one of my cats some years ago had a lot of post op pain (she does seem to have been unusual, most don't), and Jazz came home with four pain pills, one a day, which kept her comfortable. My main worry that evening was trying to persuade her not to wrestle with Jake, she wasn't in the least interested in resting.

Thinking of you and Cosette, try not to worry too much, and let us know how she's doing?

Amy why don't you give them a quick call just to put your mind at rest?!

I know they said not to call, but what if you did anyways? I just prayed for her again and I know shes fine, but just to put your mind at ease...

Are you planning a special treat? I don't give my cats table food (as a rule), but on VERY SPECIAL occasions they get a teeny piece of salmon or a shrimp. (A large, peeled, deveined shirmp takes 12 seconds in the microwave. Serves 2) Asking the vet if this is ok might be a good reason to call.

Thank you Ranger and Renee (and Susan, as always!). I just called and they said she is fine but rushed me off the phone after that, saying call at 3pm. I know they're busy but geeze....have a little more empathy for the worrying parents! But I'm relieved to know she's fine and can't wait until my little cuddle bug is wrapped up in my arms at 4!
Renee, as far as a treat goes....I have some crab meat that I may cook and give her tomorrow....tonight and tomorrow she is getting her very favorite treat- cat milk!

Yay! Amy, we all ccame through this just fine!!! I'm glad she's ok.

I'm glad the operation went ok for sweet little Cosette. It is a shame that the staff isn't more compassionate toward the worried meowmies and daddies of their patients. It seems like they would understand the anxiety people have when a loved one has surgery. At least the people on this board understand what you are going through and we are still sending vibes for you and Cosette.

I knew a good Meomy like you would have something planned.

You guys...again...thank you so much for all of your kind words and vibes I couldn't have made it through the past 24 hours without y'all. Now I'm on the way to pick up my angel from the Humane Society her and cuddle her for the whole weekend!
Kelly, I'm so glad Sui made it through too!!!!
post #43 of 52
You must be so relieved! Try to get some sleep tonight, and not wake up and check on her every 15 minutes. Enjoy your weekend of cuddles (I'm sure she will).
post #44 of 52
I'm glad your little one came through fine. I did feel like the staff there could be a little bit more friendly and take into account how the new owners feel, especially when they are so small. I have only adopted one cat from there, and I also adopted one from the Beaufort S.C. shelter, they were really nice. I got Chaucer there when he was 10 weeks or so, a little tiny guy and he had already been neutered, so I didnt have to take him back in.
All of the females I have had spayed have done really well. No problems. I have done quite a few ferals I am taking care of in Savannah. I think the younger they are the easier it is for them to recover. Griff acted like nothing happened to him at all when he came back home. But for males I think it is less invasive surgery than females. I know your little girl will be glad to see you when you get to pick her up. Glad she is out of there and doing o.k.

Oh I'm glad little Cosette will be home with her loving mama. Poor Sui doesn't get crabmeat, she just gets dumb ole tuna (and a little catmilk--she still drinks it from a bottle). I'll probably keep Sui separated until her incision heals. She is such a little tornado!!!!!! Seriously, she will kick kibble out of her dish to play with when I put everything away to calm her down. I'm so glad I had someone to share this worry and joy with!!!

COSETTE IS SAFE AND SOUND AT HOME! I'm so relieved; maybe I'll eat a bit now. Bless her heart- all she wanted to do was crawl all over me, but she's still a bit woozy, so she was wobbling a bit. Now she's all curled up in her bed and purring

Tricia....how on earth did you guess that that's what I planned on doing???? You have me pegged! I'm gonna try to drink some wine tonight and sleep hard....though I'm sure I'll check on her a couple few times!!!

I'm glad you had such a positive spay/neuter experience with your kits! I almost drove up to the Beautort shelter when I was looking for kittens....fortunately, Cosette found me just in time

I'll check in with you here on TCS this weekend Your Sui sounds so much like Cosette. How old is she now? That is so cute she's still drinking catmilk from the bottle And I am sure she will appreciate yummy tuna while recuperating!

Amy, I'm glad to hear that Cosette is back home in her Meowmy's loving arms! Thank God all the anxiety of waiting to see if the surgery went ok and the anxiety of her not being home is over!

I've read so many of your posts that I recognize that we're on the same wavelength. I'm getting old and addle pated, but there was a song that went, "Soul sisters, soul sisters..."

How's Cosette today? I have to admit that I couldn't sleep the night after Jamie was castrated - I must've woken up ten times to check on him.

So happy to hear she's home and everything went ok! Hope now that you both get a comfortable and restful night and that she's feeling her usual self in the morning. Hugs to you both.
