:LOL: I know what you mean! Not only were Walter's "peanuts" huge (at 2 years old, can you imagine?!) but, they were COMPLETELY COVERED IN BROWN FUR!!! My vet had to leave the room, he was laughing so hard when he saw them!

YAY! Rest up, Newmie !
I smile everytime I log in and see his SOTW picture-- it belongs on a shirt or mug. I'd totally buy a mug with that ministud on it. :BigSmile:

Totally! In fact, I envision a "2010 Kitties of Sphynx Lair Calendar" and that just may well be the cover shot! What a poser!!

He is definitely easier to take a pic of the Kramer! He is more laid back than Kramer.

How old is Gulliver?

I got my boy Walter when he was 2 years old and he wasn't neutered. I, too, was a worried mom the day of the surgery! Most kittens bounce right back and you wouldn't even know they had surgery that day. Walter, on the other hand, took 3 days to recover...he was fine, just very groggy from the anesthesia and he had awful bruising in the area (I took full advantage and snuggled him the whole time!). I think Walter's problems were due to his age, though. You'll want to keep an eye on him, watch for fever, keep an eye on the area and make sure it stays clean but it is a very simple procedure, so he should be just fine!

The only changes Walter had were good ones: he stopped howling, his urine didn't smell awful anymore, he quit spraying, and he became even more loveable! :ThumbsUp:

He won't change don't worry. Make sure it doesn't swell... if it does take him to the vet & just make sure litter doesn't stick to the area, most vets will suggest using a recycled paper type litter for a few days

I am worried about my new girl.
She gets bad after the November TICA show.
Cleo was spayed before I got her and you can still see the scar.
Good luck with your male.
