Nesses últimos dias, desde meu último post, estive tão ocupada que não consegui escrever uma linha sequer. Só hoje consegui terminar uma série de tarefas e posso voltar a escrever.
In these last days, since my last post, I was so busy that I couldn’t even write a line. Only now I finished some tasks and can post again..
During the weekend my dog Raul injured a paw and I started the week having to take him to the veterinarian. I decided to take Raul to Suipa (a shelter that has a vet service) because it is always a way to help the animals that are there. An official told me that there are 8 thousand dogs in the shelter, and I am not accounting the cats ... The place is ugly and looks poor, but at least the animals are not on the street exposed to all hazards. There were several dogs in the waiting room to meet the veterinarian. At the entrance two huge rottweilers, a pointer, two poodles, one akita puppy (so cute), a beautiful golden cocker spaniel, a weimaraner, a German shepherd and a few other dogs. So, the clients were very diverse. I spent a lot less than if it had gone in a private clinic.
In t he very next day, I had to take my cat Palito to be neutered. On Friday 15th, I had scheduled the surgery in City Hall. It is a free service. I want to get my 6 cats neutered. The worst thing is to let the cat with no food or water for 12 hours before the surgery. I hate this part. Palito was stressed in his box on the way, but the surgery was quick and soon we returned home.
To get the cat neutered is important because it prevents the overpopulation of cats. Prevents that a lot of kittens be abandoned in the streets, squares and cemeteries. Moreover, the animals become calm, stop marking territory (pee making in all) and I heard that it also prevents the cancer.
My first neutered cat died shortly after surgery. Her name was Sparta. I was very saddened by her death. It seems that the problem was her kidneys. Sparta was the most sweet thing that already existed. So, I was very afraid to get Palito neutered, but thank God everything was fine.
Next days, I had to take care about Raul and Palito giving medicine to both of them in the right hour, which is not easy because they just don’t want me to do that. Beyond that I had to get my job done and those things that I have to do every week as bank and supermarket...
Now it seems that the worst is over and the cats are quiet.
