This is an update on my earlier post, Front Porch Visitor. Her name is Mattie for my grandmother. She came up on my porch one week ago today. We judged her age to be one year or less. The vet said today she is at least two, maybe three years old. She only weighs a little over six pounds. Her feline leukemia test was negative so she now has her shots. She had runny eyes and the vet said most likely was a upper respiratory infection and gave me some antibiotic salve for her eyes. When he told me how old he judged her to be, I asked him if he could tell if she had ever been spayed. He said he wasn't sure. He shaved her belly and there was a scar so slight it could not have been seen if one was not looking specifically for it. He said he is reasonable sure that is a spay scar since it was in the right place. Also her nipples were very slight and small. So I brought her home. I hope I made the right decision. I hate to have her put to sleep and cut on when he thinks she is already spayed.
