cinagel: (Mew)
So there's a very good chance that Minion cannot be fixed due to his heart defect. The proceedure could kill him *headdesk*. At  least thats what I heard...again.
 The vet is going to double check with the clinic we got his ultra sound from since I distinctly recall the doctor telling me fixing him wouldn't be a problem when I was there. Turns out that they talked to a different doctor since the one I dealt with was out of town. The guy who didn't see Minion or talk to me looked at his chart and said "No" to getting him fixed. So I asked them to call the doctor I actually delt with to see what he has to say. I remember asking him point blank "Can we get him fixed?" and him saying "Oh yeah. It should be no problem." Now I'm having second thoughts about it all and wondering if that first doctor was blowing me off.

 Regardless, Max, our regular vet, and I are all coming up with alternatives to make sure his spraying stays under control if he can't get fixed.  Minion seems to spray mostly when under stress. He peed and sprayed all over the place when we were at war even though he had people he knew very well watching him all week. Apparently my lil boy has abandonment issues. I would really love to get both cats back into the bedroom with us again. It gives them both a place to hide when we have parties (Minion usually hides in the study, Scout used to hide in our bedroom). We had to close up the bedroom when Minion started spraying on our bed...which was gross and started happening more frequently than I wanted it to. I spent a LOT of time cleaning up that bed with nature's miracle more than I care to admit. Though I have to admit, forcing the two cats to be together alone at night has made them get along a lot better than they used to. No more fighting over who gets to sleep with Mommy and Daddy. I should invest in some cat beds.
 Lately though, Minion has been very good, not spraying, and the cat attract litter has kept him using the litterbox routinely so far *knocks on wood*. If we have to forgo the neutering, remaining an indoor kitty will prevent the whole spreading his Minion DNA around the neighborhood. I really have no intentions of making him an outdoor cat, especially with his heart defect. And Scout is spayed so she won't be a pregnancy option for him. Not to mention he can't get close enough to Scout to even CONSIDER that...she's a vicious lil thing when she wants to be and he does not cross her often.

 The good news is that there are healthy alternatives for the little guy. The bad news is we still gotta listen to the yowling when he wants to get laid.

Scout continues to be unamused by his antics.
