Its so nice to be home. I gave the vet tech a bit of a hard time when he went to get me to put me in my box (I love my box, I use it at home as a safe place). He had to use a blankee as I was a bit aggressive. Not really like me. But it was so nice to see Mom and Dad. I was starvin when I got home, but I wobbled a bit walking around. I got a little bit of Whiskas, a few crunchies, and some nice warm evaporated milk. But best of all, Dad gave me a few Temptations! Now, I didn't get as much of all of this as I wanted, just a taste. But it was enough. My tummy is really sore, and Dad and Mom could tell I was having some trouble, so I got some pain medicine, it made be feel better, but sleepy and woozy.
So I'm on Mom's lap feeling a bit contemplative. Mom tells me the reason for the operation today was so I couldn't have any baby kitties. This makes me a bit sad, I think I would make a good kitty mom. But Mom says there are so many baby kitties in the world, and not every one gets a nice forever home. Sometimes, when I'm looking out the patio door into the backyard, I see kitties crossing the yard. Who knows if they have a forever home or not. Its sad.
Mom and Dad also decided not to have any baby humans. They said there are also many baby humans in the world, and that not all of them get wonderful homes, or all the nice things other baby humans get. There just is not enough to go around. This makes Mom sad sometimes, she also thinks she would have made a good mama. But like helping the ferals in the neighborhood, Mom knows she makes a difference when she helps young people in her science lab at work. There are ways to make a difference without having kids or kitties. Mom is at peace, and so am I.
