Ok, I must admit I'm a bit nervous.  I have made Roscoe's neuter appt for this coming Friday.  While I am so glad that he will get some relief from these raging hormones, I am nervous because of some of the sad spay/neuter death stories I've read on here.

 

Hubby and I were gone camping this weekend, so my daughter was taking care of him.  She let him out to run around on Friday night, and said he was going crazy running around the living room, trying to climb over my rabbit-proofing fencing, and spraying and pooping all over the furniture.  She plays with him all the time, so it's not like he was stressed out by a new person taking care of him.  Oh - and he bit her toe pretty hard too.

 

So she confined him to his bunny room from Friday night until I got home Sunday afternoon.  She spent time with him in his room, but didn't let him out anywhere else.  I got home and immediately went up to hang out with him for a bit, and he was SO glad to see me, it was almost unbelievable.  I laid down on the floor on my side and called to him and he came running over and was frantically licking my face all over and cuddled up against my chest and stuck his head under my chin and stretched out and let me cuddle him and stroke him for the longest time. 

 

That is so not like him.  I can groom him or pet him when he is all stretched out and mellow - but he doesn't cuddle.  At least he never has before.  After cuddle time, I took him outside to his playpen and let him have some outdoor time, which he enjoyed immensely.  But he did spray the dog when the dog tried to lie down on the other side of the pen wall. 

 

I am really looking forward to some of these behaviors mellowing out a bit.....

It's normal to be nervous.

Idk that this will make you feel any better, but when I adopted Bun I was told she wasn't spayed. So when I took her to get spayed, they called a few hours later after having her on the table and found that she had already been spayed!!! She still had to endure the procedure of being opened up and stitches and pain medication after. Poor little girl. But she was fine, she was fine I guess twice going through the procedure.

Hugs!

Roscoe is home from the vet and doing very well after his neuter today.  I had to coax him out of the carrier, but he immediately went over to use the litterbox and munch on some hay.  He's hopping all over the place....  gingerly, but hopping all over.  Thanks for all the good vibes and well wishes!
