My Main PriorityPosted: November 9, 2011
Let me begin my blog post by saying thank you to that one person who decided to nominate me in the upcoming Best Cebu Blogs. I am deeply thrilled, flattered, and honored. It warms my heart to know someone reads my own online nook. 🙂
Anyway, a while ago, over Sbarro’s baked zittis and pizzas, Bernard, my mom, my sister, and I were talking about plans. I can’t share what they are yet for fear they may not eventually come to fruition and I would have to bow my head down in shame. But let me tell you, we’re all excited. At the very least, they motivated us to dream more and big. We’re an old bunch, actually, the youngest already twenty-one. However, I’d like to think we’re testaments motivations and inspirations are not bound by anything. They’re free, fun, engaging, and make life worth living for.
Needless to say, no matter how grand they are, they are not on top of my priorities. My number one concern is Chucks’s neuterization.
I know, we should have done this a long time ago, but we pitied him then. He was fragile and scared. Most of all, we hadn’t really thought we could come to this point, when our days are filled with his catty cries and pleas of “Let me out.” It’s already getting on my nerves.
So after reading and rereading other pet owners’ experiences, expert advice, and loads of cat-related articles, we decided the best recourse is to have him netured: it will make him less hostile against other animals, especially cats; he’ll be a lot calmer; his chances of getting serious diseases will reduce; and he’ll stop begging us day in and out.
We already have a vet clinic, but we might go back to the very first one who took great care of him. We’ve read a lot of negative reviews about the former. Neuterization isn’t a simple process, so we want to make sure he’s properly taken care of.
My only wish is he doesn’t suffer from any form of infection or illness during his recovery. It will ease our worries.
Crossing fingers, definitely.
