Kelley, this rescue does the same thing, neuters or spays before the animals 
are released BUT I so bugged these people about Snowy and practically begged 
for her, the foster mom and the vet let us have her with the agreement we would 
bring her in for spaying in April.  Dumb me, should have waited the extra 
couple of weeks and I wouldn't be worrying about this now.  I did call the vet 
the other day and asked if there was any additional risk with her being a 
persian and basically having "no nose" and they assured me there wasn't.

  Hi Lynne,

  I know it is scary - I used to be scared to death every time I did 
it...that's why our rescue does it for people so they come already spayed:)  
But really it is a very safe procedure..try not to worry TOO much..easier said 
than done I know!

    Hi all,

    I haven't posted in a while but have been reading all the emails.  I guess 
this is a little off topic but I need some reassurance.  This coming Thursday 
we are taking our Snowy in to be spayed.  It was part of the contract I signed 
when we adopted her from the foster mom. She's the rescued girl we got after 
BooBoo died.  She's a 3 year old persian and I am scared to death about doing 
this.  We've had her for about a month and the vet thought it a good idea that 
we wait til she adjusted to us, which took about a day.  She had been neglected 
in the past and had basically lived in a cage until she was rescued.  She had 
feline herpes and a respiratory infection when she was taken but recovered 
nicely and was immunized when we got her.  I just keep thinking that if we had 
not had BooBoo neutered he may have fared better.  I truly believe that it 
hastened his demise.  I hope I'm wrong about this and even though we have 
always had our cats neutered, I realize spaying is a little more complicated.  
The vet assured us she would be fine but if we lost her I don't think we'd ever 
recover.  She is an amazing precious little girl.  We haven't had a younger cat 
in the house for a long time and she is so playful and comes to bed with me 
every night when I go upstairs.  She talks to us all the time in these little 
meows and you can tell she is really happy.

    The field worker who investigated BooBoo's previous owners came by last 
week to meet her and see how she was doing and was amazed at her too.  He 
commented that we were lucky to get her because hundreds of people applied.  
She's kind of a poster child in this area for abused animals.  He also said she 
was very lucky to have got us, which was very nice of him.
