I’ve got an appointment with a nearby vet to take the little cat in tomorrow morning to have her spayed. Her pregnancy is still in the early stages, and while I hate to abort her kittens it’s going to be very hard on her to have them at her age. Not to mention how much easier it will be to find her a home if it’s just her. They’ll also give her a rabies/distemper shot and check her for feline leukemia.
I have no idea how I’m going to get her into the cat carrier. This is a canny little cat; there will be no tricking her into it—I’m going to have to simply nab her by the scruff and lower her in. It’s been over twenty years since I’ve picked up a cat who didn’t want to be picked up, so it’s anyone’s guess whether I remember how.
And just when she’s starting to trust me a little, too. *sigh*
