C-Section & Spay

Noodle is at the vet having a Cesarean and spay. I just couldn't risk waiting any longer for her to begin contractions after her waters went on Monday. The vet telephoned me today and said she was concerned for infection of that kitten and the risk to its placenta now.

I so very much wanted to give Noodle every chance to have a natural birth this time, but she and her kittens are what is most important right now. Waiting risks them becoming too big to be born, or some other dreadful outcome.

The spay is regrettable, ending any dreams I had of her producing any future babies, but her failure to go into contracting labour twice now could mean she is not reacting to the hormonal signals properly. I can't risk that a third time, and the vet advised this too.

Now I'm anxious for my phone to go so I know she and kittens are OK.

Updates will appear her or on our Facebook page as soon as I can. Thank you so much for all your kind wishes and thoughts.
