Astounding. I never realized before now I could actually hear my own blood begin to boil.

Fuck this shit.

kushdrinker:

it must get annoying living in the south with all those banjos constantly playing 

Lucky for me, I rather like the sound of banjos.

Holy crap that show was responsible for so much in my life on the Internet. Also, Rune Master probably wouldn’t have happened if not for MR; I met my coauthor thanks to being part of its fandom.

Kovu is back from the vet and doing well. Will have to keep an eye on him and follow up with his meds over the next few weeks.

Welp, dropped Kovu off at the vet for his hip surgery. Will hear about his progress later this afternoon.

UPDATE: Kovu is out of surgery and doing fine. Vet’s keeping him overnight for observation.

Important Cat PSA: Do NOT spay or neuter your cat until they’re at least 6 months old!

This is Kovu, my 10 month old rescue kitty. I am showing his picture here to put a face on this problem.

My fiance and I adopted Kovu when he was about 2-3 months old, rescued by an associate of ours. Trying to be responsible pet owners, we asked for advice from shelters and vets when to get him neutered. Kovu was fixed at roughly 4.5-5 months old, and it turns out this was a Bad Idea thanks to some misinformation that floats about.

Today Kovu fractured his femoral head (ie, the nub that sticks out of your femur to go into your hip). How he did it, I didn’t see, but I assume he was climbing, fell, and landed wrong. He fractured it so bad that he now requires a femoral head ostectomy - that is, the vet has to remove his femoral cap entirely, because it will not heal on its own and will cause my cat horrific pain if not operated on. Apparently, as I learned today, fixing a cat earlier than 6 months stunts some of their bone development, leaving them with weaker bones and a roughly 50/50 chance of breaking a joint - usually the hip or knee - like Kovu did.

The procedure’s going to put me back about $900, let alone today’s vet fees. It will hurt my bank, but I’ll survive; I am fortunate enough to have accumulated some savings despite being in between jobs and being on unemployment. This isn’t a pity party for me, nor a cry for fundraising - there are other cat owners who need the financial support more than myself for their furry friends, in much dire situations. This is just PSA to help get the info out there, so others don’t make the same mistake I did. I hope it helps prevent another cat from hurting themselves thanks to weakened bones that are totally preventable.

PLEASE reblog this to help spread the word. Mind you, I am not an expert - just a concerned cat owner who recently talked to her vet about new research in how neutering affects the bone development of cats. If I find some good sources, I will add them - please feel free to expand upon this if you have more information.
