A Big Day Ahead!
In just a little bit I'll be packing up Astrid, Thurston and Norma and we'll be taking a little ride to the vet.
Yes, it's THAT day. Time for the old snippity-snip.
They're still in their room right now, and I haven't said good morning to them yet. Everyone is awake, and through the crack beneath the door, I can see three sets of paws.
On the day of surgery, they're not allowed to have breakfast. More than just about anything, kittens hate NOT having breakfast. If I were to let them out of their room now, they would be screaming at me and climbing my pajamas, demanding their meal.
I wish I could explain to them why they can't have their breakfast, but they are probably better off not knowing why.
So, it's easier on all of us if they just stay there until it's time to go.
Oh, dear. Astrid's little arms are sticking out from under the door now. She's fishing around and trying to grab the pair of slippers I left parked outside their room. Someone is crying, too. This is killing me.
Time to wrap up this post, and get out the road.
Please wish them luck. They've got a big day ahead.
