Life | There are still some Surprises!

Hello my Darlings! This is a a bit of a random post but I thought I would share it anyway as the event was one of those in life that doesn't come around all that often anymore.. a complete surprise! I was thinking about how nothing shocks us all that much nowadays. Celebrities going off their rockers, tragic events happening in the world, and for me with the type of work I do, especially makes me quite numb to situations that might shock other people. I find that I've become someone who is not much startled by anything really. I might hear something that is momentarily surprisingly but after that, life pretty much continues in its ever mundane manner. This is what made my last weekend especially memorable. It wasn't a terribly important thing that happened, but it made me stop my usual routine and actually just burst out laughing at how random life can be sometimes.

So I had battled with the decision to take my kitty, Mugatu, in to be neutered for quite a while. I knew it was something that needed to be done and that I was just procrastinating but the thought of putting Mugie through anything traumatic or painful was just something I wanted to delay for as long as possible. As it happens, there had been some developments in my own personal life (I'll tell you at some point!) that actually meant that it had become necessary for Mugie to undergo the dreaded procedure. So with hesitant hands, I trodded along to the vet and dropped him off one morning for the operation. It was emotional to say the least.  I said my goodbyes to his adorable little face and assured him that everything would be alright, and that I would be back a little later to collect him. 

About two hours into the morning, I received a phonecall from the vet which kind of went something like this:

* Phone rings*
Vet: Hi Siyaam, it's the vet, Dr _____ calling.
Me: Yes? Is everything alright with Mugie?
Vet: Yes, you dropped him off for a castration procedure this morning?
Me: Yes, that's correct.
Vet: Miss Ally, I'm not sure how to tell you this but your Cat is a female!
Me: Say whaaaat?!

And there you go. Everything I had known for the last 8 months about my kitty cat just turned upside down. I know it might not sound like that big of deal but I had always treated Mugie like my little boy, telling him how handsome he is and buying everything of his in blue. Hearing the news that my little prince was actually a princess just made me stop and have a hell of a good laugh at how quickly things can be completely changed. Needless to say, I love my little girl more than ever now though I'm still getting used to the whole idea. Here's a look back at Mugie, now affectionately known as Miss Mugie, over the last eight months. Thanks for reading today! SS
