Puffy is feeling much better today! He acutally climbed up the Christmas tree this morning, and was one foot from the top of the 10 foot tree when I caught him! He got to spend some time in the time out room for that one! But at least he's feeling better.
I do need to set the record straight though. Even though I got Puffy neutered, I still have to spay my female cat. Muffy is Puffy's mother, and she was scheduled for a spay last year, but when my husband lost his job, she had to wait. My daughter let her out one day because Muffy was so sad (my daughter was four at the time), and now we have Puffy. Puffy was one of a 5-kitten litter. I found great homes for all the other four, and they're all spayed/neutered now. Now it's Muffy's turn. We have very tight finances, and these things have a habit of falling in importance when compared to feeding our family and paying the mortgage. I got Muffy before my husband lost his job, so we weren't taking on more than we could handle at the time. However, it's been a year now since he was laid off (and it lasted 3 months) and we're still trying to catch up. But I can tell you in no uncertain terms that Muffy will never have another litter. She'll be spayed by spring. As it was, I had to have a garage sale just to afford getting Puffy neutered. It's fairly expensive where I live. Anyway, just wanted to get this all straight.
