I’m feeling a bit out-of-kilter this morning. My sidekick Shelibean isn’t with me and I’m worried about him. See, we carried him to the vet this morning to have him neutered and also have the last 3 needle-sharp canine baby teeth pulled. Did you know that in the little breeds of dogs that sometimes their baby teeth have a harder time falling out naturally and need to be pulled? We’ll be happy the canines are gone and so will Babycat.
Sheli is just shy of 8 months old. I’m happy to report that he weighs in at a whopping 9.5 pounds and according to the vet is a very healthy puppy.
I told the vet that this will be the first night since Sheli was 7 weeks old that he hasn’t been with us and he might cry and then I added I might cry too.
The vet is supposed to call when Sheli is out of surgery and awake.
When we got home without Sheli in tow, Babycat spent a good deal of time trekking after me. I had to pick her up for a snuggle several times. I began straightening up Sheli’s toy area and Babycat went over and curled up right beside them.
We think Babycat thinks of Sheli as her kitten and she is sad and lost without him.
She’s curled up in my lap sleeping right now. I know she must be wondering where Sheli is.
I miss my baby boy.
I pray Sheli comes through surgery like a champ and has a speedy recovery.
I’ll post an update as soon as I hear from the vet.
