Mancat & Meezer Monday: Merlin Gets Fixed Today

Dragonheart: Little Merlin gets "fixed" today. The poor guy hasn't had anything to eat since 21:00 last night (that's 9 PM) and he's driving me crazy with all his meowing! At least our mom will be taking him to the vet soon, so I won't have to listen to him complaining any longer! Since he's a Meezer (Pointed) Sphynx, he has a very loud, insistent meow, just like most Meezers! (So do I for that matter, since my dam was a pointed Sphynx, but I'm not complaining at the moment.) Merlin doesn't understand what's going on, even though I've tried explaining it to him. The good news is I'll have our mom to myself for most of the day, except when she's at the gym or out running. :)

Dragonheart

Merlin: Dragonheart and my humans tell me I'm being "fixed" today, even though I'm not broken! I haven't had anything to eat since before bedtime last night, so I'm very hungry! I will be broken soon if they don't hurry up and feed me!!! Dragonheart's tried explaining this "fixing" business, but what he's saying doesn't make any sense to me! Anyhow, in the photo below, you can really see my Seal Point points on the bridge of my nose, and the white patches that go along with it! You can see how dark the fur on the bridge of my nose is, along with the white "blaze" that goes diagonally across my face from between my eyes to just below my left eye. My cheeks also have white patches (which shows up as pink skin where I don't have fur).

Oh your poor boy Merlin, 12+ hrs without food would certainly break me! I hope your trip to the vets isn't too traumatic and that you're back home snuggling with your brother soon! :)

Ooh my eyes are wartering at the thought of you getting fixed today Merlin... I hope you're home again soon and have a nice big dinner too! :)

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Oops. Mom logged in with her blog. Sometimes she doesn't pay attention. Sorry!

Merlin, we've both been fixed and there's nothing to worry about. We got extra snuggles when we came home! Boy Baubles are highly over-rated.

Black Cat said...

Aw, poor Merlin, I hope you recover quickly and get lots of treats and snuggles:) xxx

Princess said...

The Furry Kids said...

Good luck to you little dude! You'll be just fine. And after, you'll get a snack and lots of cuddles. Getting rid of our hoo-has was the best - Dad felt so sorry for us that he fawned all over us for days. It rocked!

DH, enjoy your mom time today. :)

Ramses said...

Nancy Lindquist-Liedel said...

Oh poor Merlin. Sending big hugs from, Darien, Kali and Pan-Kitty. Our cats all wish you an easy and swift recovery.

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Oh little Merlin I'd be totally honored if you gave me a valentine and I would love to return the favor!! I'm sure things will go smoothly for you today. I did notice your little hoo-ha sack recently and was thinking it was getting to be about time ;).

Kelly Cat said...

[shakes head sadly] Another hoohah-ectomy...

Hoping Merlin has no problem with his operation and that he's home with his family soon.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

By now you are probably already done. I hope you are waking up well and heartily and ready to tell the vet clinic what for! You go Merlin. Purrs.

Trixie said...

I hope everything goes okay for you Merlin. We all gotted fixed too and we weren't broken either!

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

Merlin, you are getting fixed so that you cannot make kittens. This is a good thing because you really don't want kittens and while you are not broken now, if you do not get fixed, you will develop health problems later in life. So it is a good thing. Lots of Cats get fixed, it's nothing to worry about.

Sunny's Mommy said...

My best wishes for you today, Merlin.

Daisy said...

Good luck, little Merlin! Do not worry, you will not even notice "they" are gone...

Beethoven said...

Fixed? Why do you have to be fixed when you're not broken? The Giant Kitty told me I'll have to be fixed one day in the future as well, but how will he know I'm going to get broken? I'm going to try very hard not to get broken! I hope everything goes well. Not having anything to eat is no fun though.

Captain Jack and Sir Dante said...

Everything will be ok Merlin, we just know it! Fixing goes by real fast!

The Meezers said...

Merlin, we hopes you is home mow and feelig ok. you are really starting to look meezerish

catsynth said...

We'll be pulling (purring) for Merlin.

Tybalt said...

Good luck, Merlin! I'll be purring for you.

The whole "fixing" thing doesn't take long, and the worst bit about it is the not getting fed. You'll be ok.

You are looking very meezerish today!

Kavan said...

Nothin' to it Merlin! You will be tearing around the house tonight!

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

Oh Merlin!!! I feelz fur you man. Yikes!!!! But I know you will be better quickly & den homez wit your big bro.
I wants to tank you two fur purrin' fur Delilah dis weekend. Here iz a message from her:
Thank you so much for visiting while I was so very ill. Mommy thinks I almost died Friday night, so I am rebounding quickly. Mommy now believes I might be allergic to a wasp sting. It was nice to hear that all the kitties of the blogosphere were purring & praying. It helped me to have heart, and my mommy was so appreciative for all of the love.
We hope you will join us for Dr Tweety's Valentine's cruise. More details will be posted later.
Many blessings,
Delilah

DH, I want to say that every time I stop over, your blog has an awesome new look! It just keeps getting better and better! Nice work! Enjoy the day with your Mom.

Merlin, I think this means that you're very close to being a Big Man Cat now. We've all had our hoo-haas removed, so do not worry.

Lux said...

purring for you Merlin! No worries little guy, most mancats get this done at some point. Bendrix and I did and we're just fine! you won't even miss your, um, well, you know.
When you get home, there will be lotsa extra snuggles and lovin from your beans too. maybe not extra foods until tomorrow tho. then eat like crazy!

TT said...

Good Lucks Merlin, I hopes you gets your food soon. Dragonheart, it was very kind of you to try to explain to your brother what "fixed" means. He'll know soon enough what it means though. :)

Vincent and Mike said...

Good luck Merlin. I got fixed when I wasn't broken too. Mombean says we have it easier then the girls, so we should be happy.

Sammawow said...

Oh, poor little Merlin - we are purring for you today! We bet you will get treated and spoiled after the "fixing" is over! And, Dragonheart, have fun with your mom today!

Purrrrrrs, China Cat & Willow

The Cat Realm said...

Merlin should be all fixed and home by now? We hope he isn't hurting or anything - we'll check back later!

Derby said...

You will be OK Merlin. Purrs that you get home soon to play with Dragonheart.

MoMo said...

Good luck with the "fixing"! You'll get plenty of treats after.

Kaz's Cats said...

Oh poor little Merlin - this comment is a bit late, so we're hoping that you're safely back home by now. Remember to beg for extra treats as your mom and dad might be feeling a bit guilty after what they've put you through. You'll be fine afterwards though it doesn't hurt to go for a few extra treats if you can.

Purrs
