Weirdest Conversation

This morning I brought my two female kittens into the veterinarian’s office to be spayed and have their front claws removed (I know removing claws is controversial, and we truly considered not doing it, but our family is called to host families from around the world, who often include very young children and older adults, so for the safety of those people, we really needed them to not have their front claws).

I received a call from the vet earlier today saying that our kitten, Pippin’s, surgeries went well. I just received a call that Nemo’s surgeries also went well. But as he was talking to me, this is what he said: “Nemo is just waking up from anesthesia. His declaw went well, and those puppy teeth have been removed. Her spay also went well.”

So, were you working on a cat or a dog? And was it a male or female?

I have been very pleased with the service my animals have received at this vet, and it is confusing that we have a female cat named, Nemo.

But, I think the vet had a long day today!

I found out that I have Autism upon having a son with the same "disorder." Ironically, I was voted, "Most Likely to Succeed," by my high school classmates. But had I been born now, instead of 40+ years ago, I would have been considered a different sort of special. This site was started to encourage other Autistics and the people who love them .

  1. Totally fine to declaw. Side note – our cat of 20 years died last month. Super sad.

    Sorry to bee bop onto your site with a favor, but wanted to check in – I recently moved my blog Peace Hacks to a self-hosted site, which, for some reason means that “old” followers don’t receive post notices – it’s killing me…
