Thread Starter 
She has an appt. to be fixed tomorrow morning (at 7am!) I know its silly to be nervous but I am! It is two in the morning here and I have to be up in 4 hours to take her, and I cant sleep a wink.

Ok cj is demanding I come back to bed, so its off to try sleep again!

We all get like that when our babies are going to the vets! Gabby will be fine and back to her little self in no time at all!

Just try your best to stay distracted - I'm sure CJ will give you excellent help with that!

I felt the same way with Toby and Tedy....did`nt want them to be gone all night from me......but they both returned ....were glad to be back home...and all was well once again.
This is a GOOD thing you are doing for your kitty. And you have another one to keep you company while you wait.

Lots of good vibes going to your sweet Gabby!
I was always a nervous wreck as well when my babies went in to get "fixed" but they all came out fine. I'm sure Gabby will be fine too.

It is perfectly normal to be nervous about your baby! I know I will be when the time comes to nueter Murphy! You cant help but to worry they are undergoing surgery, and being the caring meowmies and dads we are it is only normal Chichi, Murphy and I are sending good vibes for Gabby, she will do just fine

It's normal to be nervous. I feel that way when any of my babies go to the vet. Thinking of you and Gabby. Let us know how things go.

ooooh good luck I hope she's ok and it doesnt upset her too much. I know exactly how you are feeling, I posted about this yesterday as I was unsure about whether this was the best thing to do for my 6 month male kitten but everybody assured me it was and after speaking to the vet last night Im still feelin very scared about it but know its right for him. I still want to cry thinkin about the mornin of 10th November when I have to take him in! and not bein able to feed him from 10pm the night before but its the best thing for them and the vet assures me they are not old enough to know what their bodies are capable of yet so it wont put them up or down.
Let us know how she gets on x

Well I took her in and poor Gabby girl she was so scared, her eyes were big as saucers. She was crying and looking at me as if to say I am sorry Mommy I wont be bad again. The last thing I saw before the tech shut the door is her striped arm reaching out to me as I had to walk out of the room. When he shut the door I could still hear her crying. It absolutly broke my heart. I started to cry a little on the way home. I know its silly, but I still feel terrible. I am going to be there at 3:30 when she starts to wake up.

As if thats not bad enough CJ is walking around the house calling for her, looking under the bed, in the bathroom in the litter boxes. He looks at me like where did she go mommy? Why did you take her?

Isnt it silly? I still feel like I took my own child and just left it at the doctor.

After this, both cats go to the vet together.

oh I feel so bad for you. She will forget about it soon Im sure. I just know this is how my kittens going to be aswell. They said they'd take him in the night before but I said no as he's not allowed to eat after 10pm and i dont really think that would help him being in a strange place with no food.
Let us know how she is when she gets home please I hope shes ok I really do xx

It's normal to be nervous about any kind of surgery, but spaying/neutering is really routine. I'm always the same way. I hardly ever take off from work (perhaps five or six days in 20 years), but "neutering day" is definitely an exception, even though I could drop the pet off before school, and pick him/her up when I get home in the late afternoon. Let us know how she's doing.

Well Ms. Gabby Girl has come home. She is a bit punch drunk but she is doing well. She had a bunch of stuff done today, so I am not suprised that she feels a bit tipsy.

Today she had:
Spay w/anistesia
Ketamine surgery (not sure what that is, but there was no charge)
Microchip
Rabies Vx
FVRCP Vx, kitten
Feline Leukemia /FIV test
FIV Vx
Dewormer

Total $168.46

Having my little girl back? ~~Priceless

I told the vet that I didnt know if she had any previous shots so just go a head and give them all to her. She will need boosters in a month or so. I am just glad to have her home. She is under the bed now chilling out. I am so happy it was all okay!

I completely missed this thread earlier, but I am so glad Gabby made it through everything OK. She'll be good as new in no time and I know her mommy is relieved .

Your right Amy, I am relieved. Now its just keeping the two from playing and wrestling like normal. They get pretty into it, often with scratch marks, and sometimes missing fur. I keep interrupting them but I cant do it tomorrow when I am at work.

I am worried that she will rip a seam out or something. She does walk kinda stove up (and I would too!) but really is more active than I thought she would be. Am I being over cautious or do they come out really easy? I dont want her to start bleeding while I am asleep or at work.

Glad to know Gabby is home safe and sound. She sounds like such a precious little girl!

You must be relieved! Ketamine would've been the anesthetic agent used. It's an injection, which is also sometimes used in humans.

Your right Jcat, I am just glad its all over, no more worring about her, and I am home until monday so I can watch her. I cant tell you how relieved all her blood tests for FIV and Flukiema came back negative, as well as her to not be pregnant considering she was living outside not spayed, and came into heat 2.5 weeks after I took her in.
Its all such a relief. And now she is truley part of the family, and here to stay.
