I'm Up Early

...because it's surgery day for Pete.

I don't want to get all Bob Barker on you, but if you have cats or dogs and no plans for progeny, please spay or neuter them. It removes animal shelters from the equation when it comes to euthanization of a population of strays that spirals beyond their budget / control. What's more, it frees your pet from urges you can't give them the freedom to act upon.

Anyway, reserve your best wishes / prayers / etc. for Pete today, and especially for the doctors who will handle his procedure, and for the vet techs / nurses who care for him before and after. He can be quite a handful, and I've already pissed of SNAP once.

All for now.

It will make him less bitey. Less humpy too...wait...that's Rosie.

One would hope. He hasn't bitten anyone yet, but he's been really aggressive to strangers today due to the hallucinations from his pain medication, mixed with bouts of paranoia (or punchiness). I think he just needs to sleep but he's been too needy since I brought him home to get a good nap / sleep in.
