|The first thing Bobby did was head straight for the food. I don't think he liked the kibble at the shelter.|
Yesterday morning I went up to the Ivins Animals Shelter to make sure everything was fine on getting Bobby in for the Big Fix - That's our mobile spay/neuter clinic sponsored by No More Homeless Pets of Utah. I talked to Aggie, the absolutely wonderful Animal Control officer at the shelter, and we made a couple of decisions regarding our sweet boy.
|As soon as Bobby came out of the carrier, Tyrone and Diedra hit the high ground. They've been cautious, but no fights so far.|
|No problems with aggression at the house. Here he accepts some loves. As you can see, he's had his ear tipped so others will know he's been altered.|
So, yesterday he was neutered and got his shots. And this morning I went and picked him up in hopes that now that he is fixed he won't be attacked anymore. It will take a week or so for his scent to change and the poor think is walking a bit funny (can you blame him?) so we're keeping him in the house for a couple of days. So far so good; Tyrone and Diedra have been leery of him but there haven't been any fights yet.
|Bobby relaxes on Kristin's bed. It took him a couple of hours to really relax, but you can see he's much happier.|
He's not too happy about the cat door being closed but he's just hanging out, eating and getting plenty of sleep. He actually went in on Kassie's bed when the kids went down for the night and cuddled with her for a couple of hours. You can tell he's happy to be home.
