Last week, I was supposed to have Nio neutered. I had it scheduled through the SPCA in Barrie and had paid for it and everything, and Mom and I dropped him off for 8am on the Monday, then headed off. We were supposed to pick him up at 5pm. No problem, we had running around and chores to keep us busy until then.

Except like an hour and a half later the SPCA called to tell me that Nio's neuter was a no-go because when they brought him into the operating room and gave him the cursory pre-surgery exam, it turned out that only one of his testicles was descended. They couldn't even feel the other one. And the SPCA is a high-volume spay/neuter clinic, so they don't have the resources to do the exploratory surgery to, yanno, locate Nio's MIA testicle. *FACEPALM*

So we picked him up, got the money refunded, and I brought him home. Ugh. We can try again in a month or so, but no guarantees. I might have to take him to my regular vet to be neutered (since they do have the resources/time), in which case it'll cost me like $300 instead of the $60 the SPCA charges. ~_~; Damn you and your balls, Nio, DAMN THEM.

In any case, a couple of days after that Nio started acting sick. Not super suck, but just like he's not feeling 100%. He hasn't been eating all of his food, and he's been relatively cuddly, which, for him, is very strange. He's also been sneezing a little. I think he picked up a bit of a bug while he was out and about, but it doesn't seem like anything to worry about...

...except that as of yesterday, Neko is off his food, too. Today was even shopping day; every week on Wednesday when I do groceries, the cats have Treat Night and get canned food instead of their usual kibble, and they go NUTS for it. Tonight everyone got super excited as usual-- but Neko didn't even come into the kitchen.

When I was done dishing the food out and everyone else was eating I went to find him, and he was just laying in his kitty bed behind the rocking chair in the living room. I picked him up and took him to the kitchen, and he kind of sniffed at the food, then just turned and walked away again. =/

This has me moderately worried about him, as Neko never turns down food, but ESPECIALLY canned food. He's a soft food FIEND.

I dunno. I guess I'll just keep an eye on him, the same as I am with Nio, and hope neither of them get worse. It'd cost me a fortune to take both of them to the vet over what appears to be a minor cold/flu type bug...
