I will mention that to him when I take her in, but for some reason I believe
the technician told me they would be doing that.

Well I won't be taking Snowy in for spaying this coming week. I went to clip
her nails tonight and noticed that there was a big lump on her right paw. When
I touched it she meowed so I got her into the emergency vet. They told me I
did nothing wrong that this had happened to her over a very
Oh, the poor sweetie! But she'll feel better now without that nasty ingrow.
Here 's wishing both of you a noneventful spay, when the time is right, and

Well, they say things happen for a reason. An infected paw wouldn't help
anything heal. Glad you found it. I have a cat who has that happen all the
time. He is semi feral, and the vet has to clip his hails. He is diabetic,

an emergency vet being completely uncaring, or seeming to be. It's a
pain, a real stresser. I try never to go back to those guys, once I
find out what they're like.
Bless you - hang in there.

Poor little Snowy. Don't worry she'll forgive you by tomorrow. You are right,
getting her little paw healed up is far more important than the spaying. It is
in a cat's genes to not show pain or illness.
