Not at all emasculating, it also refers to spaying females, so it goes both ways Kind of a low brow term, but it sounds better then castrated and uterine hysterectomy

The whole concept is disturbing.

It is, isn't it. I always feel awful when I have a male cat neutered. "Oh my gawd, what have I done to you?!" For some reason I don't feel as bad about having a female cat neutered. I guess it's 'cause it's her that has to have the kittens and I know how female apes (women) feel about birth control.

We have 3 cats, 1 of them, jones, is a real talker. He is like an alarm clock in the morning. Our little chiwawa is smaller than the cats.

Katy, I forgot to mention it before, your cat is gorgeous. What's his name? How old is he. You should post some more pix in Pets and tell us all about him.

Katy's kitty is a kutie, isn't (s)he?

I never took our first cat to the vet except when she adopted us (sitting on our deck looking in at us - got her a check-up, then spaying) till when we moved 10 years later. And that was to get something to relax her when we drove straight from OH to MA. She was a very healthy 17 when the dog next door murdered her...

This one? Seems like every time I've HAD to take her to the vet it's "she needs this, you have to buy this" including the time she was in for FOUR days and they still didn't know what was wrong. I ended up taking her home and nursing her by instinct instead of doctor's orders...and she got well. Had I done it the vet's way I would have been giving her pain meds every four hours - and she was not in pain! They just wanted to keep her drugged. That's when I changed vets. I've taken her back only when she needed to see a vet because of a UTI. Otherwise I use my Mom sense.

I'm sitting here watching infomercials. There's never anything good on Saturday mornings...

One of my cats loves tortilla chips.
