Yesterday, Bud went to the vet’s. He got his shots and was neutered. He’s bigger than I realized, he weighed in at 9 pounds, 6 ounces. He was happy to get home and have something to eat since he hadn’t been allowed any food since 8pm the nite before.
After I got Bud back home in the afternoon, I drove over to my folks and I spent the night. Then I took Dad and Mom to the hospital bright (?) and early this morning. Dad had a successful kidney stent replacement and then I took them home again. Like all trips to the hospital, there was a lot of waiting around involved, but no surgical complications or problems.
Richard stayed home with Bud, and the two of them got along quite well. Richard took Bud outside last night and again this morning. Bud is recuperating from his neutering as if nothing happened. Let’s hope that he is less inclined to shred screens when he wants to go outside. I took him out around suppertime tonight and I saw another kitty come to the edge of the woods and sit. Bud ignored the other cat; I’m not sure if he didn’t notice it, or just didn’t care. I would guess that the other cat is a girl that he has been wanting to “visit” the last few days, and now he’s just not into that sort of thing.
Here’s Bud, enjoying the Great Outdoors.
