Our family meeting went well. The words came, then Comedian narrated, rationalizing the choice in her own 4-year-old-everything-makes-sense-because -I-said-it way. Bear crumbled - just as we knew she would.
The next morning was a little harder than I thought. Bear managed to rally for this picture. And, YES that is the makeshift chicken coop that Jer built when they hatched on New Years Day. Thank you for noticing - means you've been reading my various blogs a while! What - It isn't supposed to double as a makeshift cat carrier?? Oh, sorry...
The humane society ladies were wonderful. They even tolerated a crazy lady weilding a camera like a wedding photographer determined NOT to miss any part of the day!
Butterscotch seems very happy back home with us even if he is a bit lonely and acting stressed, like a recently weaned toddler, trying to convince Sally to let him nurse again. She having none of it!
And, just to keep the 'where did my family go' drama in high gear, tomorrow we drop off Sally-mama to be spayed. Poor little Butterscotch will have to go a whole night without her.
FUN CAT FACT: Did you know that the requirements for neutering boys are, reached 3 pounds and their testicles have descended?
(HA! Google that!)
UPDATED TO ADD: Butterscotch's you-know-whats are good and ready but at a weight of 2.7 pounds he'll have to weight for the neutering process to commence. Also, he did quite well while Sally-Mama had her sleepover at the vets, if you consider 'well' to mean he cried until one of us stayed downstairs with him so he could sleep on our chest. *awwwww*
