Blue is recovering from ‘the snip’

Poor Blue went in for his castration today. The vet wanted to be sure that he was calm, so mum stayed with him while they administered the anaesthetic. He went peacefully to sleep and then we all crossed our paws that the op would be quick and straightforward.

Mum went back to pick him up a few hours later and the vet was extremely pleased with how everything had gone. Blue was still feeling groggy when he first came home and spent most of the afternoon asleep.

He hates the cone of shame that he’s been made to wear so that he can’t lick his wound or pull the stitches.

This evening Blue has been feeling much better and he hatched a cunning plan to try and get rid of the cone of shame… he grubbed his way around the garden hoping that the humans would take it off!

Instead it got a good clean and he got a sausage as a consolation prize.

I feel his pain, even though I had the snip years ago, the memory still makes me shudder! I hope he feels back to normal soon.

Bisous, Bailey

  2. You are so brave to share your space with three (shudder!) canines! Why didn’t you demand a feline sister for a change?

    DO they have the neck pillows in your country.? We also have an inner tube looking neck pillow that works for animals to not be able to reach to lick. It is more comfortable. My brother Jiggs thinks he is walking around with his own pillow.

  7. Well, Blue now, hopefully April soon. Then all will be calm and bright! Hope little Annabelle will not bother him while he’s healing! Stay well, dear Baily. Pat


  8. Sweet Blue!! You are precious! Hoping you feel better soon! At least your Mama didn’t say to your Daddy what my Momma said when I was neutered, she said “watch out, you’re next!!!” Love, Cody


  9. We never noticed how similar Blue and Annabelle’s markings are 🙂

    Pee Ess: I’d demand a cat as the next addition!


I'd love to hear what you think....
