Sylas and I made the unpleasant trip to the doctor a few days ago for immunizations. I squeezed in my monthly visit to Cosco and Walmart before the doctor appointment, so Sylas was probably ready to head home...poor thing! I was very anxious for the shots (you'd think I was getting them) because it is the hardest thing watching your sweet baby get unexpectedly stabbed in the thigh with a needle. He started to cry but as soon as I swept him up in my arms, he stopped. RELIEF! In the smiling picture of Sylas, you can see his little bandaid.
Yesterday, we volunteered to help http://www.9thlifehawaii.org/ with it's Spay/Neuter day. Everyone got up early and headed to the meeting spot. Sam and Sophie helped us load 20 cats from various owners into our van, then Brett made the hour trip up to the cat sanctuary. They were fixed, and following recovery they were reloaded and Brett drove them back. Let me tell you, this was quite the experience for Brett. About 400 cats (both feral and household pets) will be spay/neutered over 3-4 days. A generous vet donated his time, resulting in a huge impact on the island's crazy cat population!
