I just just came back from dropping off Pearl to be spayed. Last week they said she weighed 43 plus pounds but this week they said she weighs 40 pounds, 1 ounce. I suspect this is the more accurate weight because she was squirming, last week. They let me tuck her in with her blanket and chipmunk stuffie, and I left some of her regular food for later. She looked distressed but wasn't freaking out. The surgeon got caught in traffic so I didn't get a chance to talk to her. They sounded like they might take Pearl in, first, but that is not yet decided. She is getting laser surgery and a microchip. I will be waiting by the phone like a deranged lunatic until I hear something. I hope this isn't early onset Alzheimer's.
