Tinga was due for her spay 4 months ago. But due to some unforeseen circumstances, her spay was delayed up to now. It just seems like she’s not meant to be spayed at that time as something ALWAYS came up when its time to take her to the vets, until last saturday, 16th May 2009… her fateful day. I hope she won’t hate me for this..
Where are we going?
We are going to see Dr. Lynette to make you pretty.. 🙂
But I AM already pretty...
We know that, we’re going there to tone you down actually. *ahem* so you don’t pee on Tridus anymore.
I don't like crossword puzzles!
Dr. Lynette is running late. She has an emergency to attend to. So we have to wait for her to come back to the clinic for Tinga’s surgery, which is an hour later than the appointment. :S While we waited, guess who decided to amuse himself?
We noticed a latex glove filled with water on the table and TJ decided to entertained himself as he is extremely tired from his badminton game in the morning and there’s no place for him to nap.
How many signs can you come up with using latex glove?
Basically whatever signs/symbol the original fingers are able to show, the latex glove can show too.. maybe even better as latex are more flexible. LOLz
You're a peanut sign.
By this time I was laughing so hard that my hands were shaking, and I’m contemplating whether to show the following sign..Do you guys want to see it? hahahhahah! Please continue to scroll down if you’re easily offended.
I think I don't have to caption this already. 😛
While waiting for Tinga, we finished a movie. About 1 hour later, Dr. Lynette appeared cuddling Tinga in her arms! The surgery is over and she handed Tinga to me. According to her, bunnies tend to get startled when waking up from the anesthetic and panic will follow. So I cuddled her and waited for her to wake up so Dr. Lynette could observe her before releasing her patient.
Tinga in my arms. She woke up a while later, scared until I called her name and she calmed down and promptly fell asleep.
completely knocked out!
We were waiting for her to be fully awake for Dr. Lynette’s observation but this cheeky little bun was so comfy that I think she pretended to be asleep! When I saw her nose twitch again, I knew she was awake and put her down on the table. Dr. Lynette confirms that she’s stable and discharges her. I cuddled her again throughout the car ride until we reached home.
Mmm.. don feel like eating...
We set her a separate playpen on the other side of our living room and she crawled into the box that she had chinned before this little outing. She wasn’t in the mood for any food.. not even the alfalfa hay that she loves.
Ting... U ok?
Tridus dropped by for a visit after missing her the entire day.
Don't worry, u gonna be fine..
He went into the box and sniffed her all over. I was afraid he would hurt her accidentally but Tridus was a gem. He gently comforted her by licking her to show his love & care… 🙂
I'll take care of her..
I do think Tinga’s in pain but her tolerance level is amazingly high as she doesn’t make any sound that indicated pain. I can tell from her face though.
Owwhhh it hurts...
She crouched in this position until late at night before taking her first bite of the leafy bok choy, ignoring the pellets and alfalfa hay altogether.
I'll just eat the leaf...
She still did not pass motion though. Dr. Lynette told us that she found loads of poop when she opened her up. Had some difficulties searching for her womb as it was blocked by her poop. LOLz.. she removed all the poop before removing her womb.
Tinga's bfast topped with 2 raisins.
Since she refused all the pellets and alfalfa hay, I chopped the baby bok choy for her to munch. She only had a leaf of bok choy the day before.
After she finished her meal, she still did not poop. In fact, she did not do her bathroom routine until very late at night! But when we saw that single tiny poop inside the litter box, we were so happy and relieved! Never thought we could be so happy seeing a bunny poop! 😀
