Nore - the prices seem to be the same at both clinics I've been to. Sigh.

Question for you Nore and any other cat people: our kittens just turned 5 months old and we are scheduling surgery to have them spayed and neutered (our vet wanted to wait until 6 months but said if they were 5 pounds she could do it). The female is just under 5 pounds and the male is almost 7 pounds. Today I saw the boy mounting the girl and his little penis was all the way out! I freaked out and separated them but now I'm worried that she may already be pregnant! I know they can spay even if they are pregnant but obviously we'd rather avoid that! She is not showing signs of being in heat but he is clearly ready! What are the chances that she is pregnant at 5 months?

Its not impossible for her to get pregnant. They dont have to go into heat first.

Normally IF he was actually IN her, you would not be able to break them apart because he has spikes on his penis and it would rip her inside and hurt....

There is a chance she could be pregnant. I've heard of cats as young as 4 months getting pregnant. I would take them both in for surgery ASAP.



I asked a friend who runs the shelter I volunteered at, she is a veterinarian nurse.. This was her reply..

Thanks Earth & Nore! We have them scheduled to both be fixed in a week and a half.

Happy Canada day to the Canadians!

I booked tickets back to BKK yesterday.. just for 2.5 weeks in july/august, but still.. Hubby needs to take 3 weeks holiday beginning of August, but I nearly exploded when he told me he had to ask permission from his brothers to go anywhere (one brother has a farm) - this is EXACTLY why I did not want to come back here, and this is EXACTLY what he promised wouldn't happen! He is supposed to come to BKK on July 30th but now he says he'll only stay as short as possible because maybe his brothers wants him to be around the farm... GRRR!! I will ovulate beginning of August so I was hoping he would at least stay a week! I really really do not appreciate this family dynamic. He also talked about how we would go to Norway in August to repaint our house, but no.. it will depend on the farm now.. I get furious haha I really don't know what to do, if this continues I frankly don't know if I want to stay with him ...

Nore - I don't blame you for feeling that way. I would feel the same. Family is important but your marriage should come first (in my opinion). I'm sure you've explained to your DH how you feel. I hope you can find a compromise that makes you both happy. Definitely sounds like a bigger topic you'll need to discuss in more depth.

I'm really having a hard time and don't know what to do. DH was supposed to have his SA today and surprise, surprise, he couldn't do it. He even "practiced" 4-5 days ago and succeeded. I don't know what to do. If he can't give a sample "under pressure" we will never be able to do IVF. This has happened 4 times now. With his first SA he had to cancel his first 2 appointments. Then last month we had to cancel the IUI. Now today we had to cancel his SA. How bad do you think it would be if we BD and he pulls out at the end? I honestly think that is the only way this will work. He was able to do it once with a collection condom for IUI but then couldn't last month. And even with pulling out I'm not sure because the time-limit seems to make him unable to do it even though we are fine the rest of the time. This whole journey is hard enough and to have to deal with this on top of it is making me depressed. I know this makes him feel horrible but this is the 1 single thing he has to do in this process and he can't.

I would ask your clinic for other options. On FF, one woman gave " kisses" to her DH in the clinic parking lot and they got a sample. I thought that was always funny but it got the job done.

Hey Ask,

I just wanted to pop in quick and say... if worst came to absolute worst, and you were worried about IVF, they can do PESE or TESE where they extract the sperm from his testicles using a needle. I believe this needs to be done a bit before IVF, like maybe a month and then they freeze it? But you still have options if you go down that route. They definitely think of everything, you just have to pay a little more.

Thanks Nelson - I read that too. Good to know there are options! We got the sample done today but we broke the rules and had sex using preseed and he pulled out (sorry TMI). I guess we will see how the quality is...hopefully it won't make much of a difference! We will try the collection condom again next time (didn't have one this time) for the sample that they will freeze. Hopefully we didn't just blow $200!
