Bella is going in tomorrow morning to be spayed. They want to keep her overnight, and we can pick her up on Thursday. Not sure why that is, I can't recall my other animals having over-nighters with spays/neuters. She's having a couple of tooth extractions.. not sure if that has anything to do with it. I've opted for the IV fluids, but I can't imagine she'll be on an IV for the whole night. She's also getting microchipped and 1 dewclaw removal that the breeder missed.. but that's all minor stuff.
I feel horrible. Her food is put away (been fasting since 8pm), her bag is packed, her carrier with her favourite toy and blankie packed.. and she even got a bath tonight. She's good to go, and she has no idea. She's going to feel soooo abandoned and scared, especially during tomorrow night when she'd otherwise be snuggled between dh and I in bed
I know I'm going to cry when I leave the vet's office tomorrow morning, and that's SO silly. I can do this! I've done this before! I've had all my pets spayed/neutered, it's not a big deal! What is this power these Cavs have over us, with their soulful eyes and deep attachment issues, lol.
I'm really not happy about having to leave her overnight. They close shop at 9pm and there's nobody in there all night anyway (I think the earliest person in is 6am). I just don't see the advantage of having her stay there. I'm going to see if they'll let me get her tomorrow night...
Ok, now that I've talked myself through this time for some sleep!
If you got this far, thanks for letting me ramble
