Tomorrow we’re taking kitten Ginger to be fixed — sad! The one we call Ginger is actually 2 years old and we have gone through many a heat with the hope that Ginger would have her own kittens someday. Yes, I know that Bob Barker tells everyone to have their animals spayed and neutered. Yes, I know that there is animal overpopulation. But Ginger.
Ginger has the most incredible personality in a cat.
- While she isn’t a snuggler, everytime we come home, she headbutts us and nuzzles our faces and that’s how she lets us know how glad she is we’re home.
- If our voices are raised, she’ll come running and come right up to your face to make sure everything is okay.
- Wherever we are in the house, she’ll be within a close proximity of us for the company.
- As a calico, she coons! You’ve got to hear it, she’s very vocal.
And the whole idea with breeding Ginger was so that there would be more little Gingers in the world! I’m not sure I’m ready to let go of this pleasant thought. 😦
I feel like she doesn’t know what’s coming and is going to hate us, that I am deserting her. Ah!
Will she forgive me? Am I doing the right thing? This is pretty permanent… It’s not too late to back out…
Although to have not-in-heat-Ginger would be really nice…
Have you had similar experiences spaying or neutering your animals? Do they change? Do they stay the same?
