Gau has returned, and is in high spirits (perhaps due to his painkillers). He’s got to go in tomorrow morning to get an IV shunt removed, and possibly get another catheter if he doesn’t pee here at home tonight.
His entire butt is shaved – like a reverse poodle. There’s basically just a large bloody stitch going from his anus to his lower belly, and everything that was there is gone. He used to have a furry little sack, but all his junk has now been taken away. That bit was a little unexpected, I thought he’d at least get to keep that; now all his genetic material is gone. Cloning will be the only option for more Gaus!!
He was laying on me earlier, purring happily, so I guess my fears of him changing personality were unfounded. Now he just needs to recover, and all will be well.
Also, the bill came out to be half what I was expecting, so that’s a little bit of good news too.
