Have Moone booked in to be spayed on Thursday, my nerves will be shot with her! She's never spent any time away from home. She doesn't do well with injections so good luck to the poor vet! All my other pets, aside from the chinchilla, have been neutered and I know she'll be fine too but she's my baby I swear every day I look at her she seems to be shrinking in size

My glands don't work properly so the heat isn't my friend, but I love watching our cats basking in the sunlight. Felix is loving the heat from the bark chips and spends his mornings rolling on it. Poppy blocks the front door sprawled on the door mat and Jazzy loves the top of Tobys cat house. Toby meanwhile likes our bed

Good luck Rusty and Moone!! I'm starting to wonder if Lucy may have had a silent heat a few months ago - we're waiting for her to have a heat before we get her spayed. It's been 3 years since I had a holiday - first I knew I was going to made redundant so saved instead, then I was made redundant the next year and didn't take one and then last year we got Lucy..I'd LOVE to book something but know Murphy's law the day we drop her off she'll go into heat!

That's what happened to moone, she wasn't due to go into heat until March this year so I booked her in for the first week of January then she of course didn't play along and went into heat just after Christmas! So there won't be any worry of that next week

Are you going with a traditional spay? I'm tempted to go for keyhole for Lucy for the quick recovery time and not having to mind stitches etc.

I was thinking of doing the keyhole surgery if my vet allows it, I think it'll be less traumatic for moone

Poor Moone - Im sure she will be fine so try not to worry too much - she will be home in the evening, so have some nice cooked chicken or something yummy to bribe her with so she forgives you faster. Best of luck!

Only certain vets do it. Ours doesn't - if they did I'd have no questions about which option to take. It's trusting another vet that has me wondering. Our own vets are 2 mins around the corner too so on our doorstep. Poor Bailey is terrified of cones so another plus of the keyhole option for us!
