  • Mood:
So today was Isis' first vet appointment. Apart from being terribly late because traffic was awful, it went really well. I had been concerned because she had some diarrhea yesterday, but when I got home from work, it seemed to be improving. It was still pretty runny, but was starting to look more poo-shaped, and less like little puddles. I told the vet about it, and he said it was probably just adjusting to a new home and new food, and to call him if it persisted. He also tried to feel for a spaying scar, but couldn't find one. Which doesn't mean for sure that she wasn't spayed. So I have to decide: should I get him to open her up, and spay her if she hasn't been already (a possibly unnecessary sedation and operation), or should I wait and see if she goes into heat (subjecting me to all the joys of a cat in heat)? I'm not sure what the best course of action would be. The cost isn't a factor, because the Humane Society provides a free spay/neuter voucher every time you adopt from them. I'm just not sure what's best for me and Isis. Any thoughts?

Spenser is still unimpressed that he can't get into my room. He is distressed when he hears Isis calling, but he's only growled once. He did run away when he smelled her in her cage today when I was bringing her home. But no hissing, no growling right at her -- these are good signs. Still another week and a half of quarantine, for him to get used to the idea.
