Then on Friday I took Juliet to the doctor. Other than a little cold, she's very healthy which is great. Her paperwork said she had been spayed very recently but we did not see any type of shaving of her fur or surgery marks, so I asked the nurse about it. The nurse looked, did not see any kind of scar either and felt her stomach. "I don't feel any kind of scar of firmness that we feel after spaying," she said, "so I'll call the lady who raised her and see what's going on. My guess is that she hasn't been spayed yet." Ug. My heart sank as I didn't want Sarah to worry while Juliet was at the vet for surgery.
Then the doctor comes in. He takes one look at cute little Juliet with her pink collar and laughs. "Well, you don't see any marks from spaying because this is a MALE kitty!" Oh, my! So, we had to tell Sarah after school that her cute little girl kitty was actually a BOY! She kept saying, "I don't believe it! She's a GIRL!" We kept saying, "No, honey. HE'S a BOY."
After it all sunk in, we headed back to Petsmart with all the pink goodies we had bought and explained to them what had happened and they let Sarah pick out all new non-pink items. After the shock wore off, Sarah and "Romeo" are the best of buds! So the kitty who once was named "Juliet" is now a "Romeo."
Actually, we should have known Romeo was a boy all along .... he was happy to watch football with Kevin on Thursday night and he hogs the tv remote (see below)!!
