IF HE COULD speak or if I could interpret meows, he would say:
‘I want them back. What have you done with my balls?’
I feel guilt. My partner feels it too.
Our kitten no longer has testicles. It is as if we might have drained him of his true cat essence, like his cat persona would be altered beyond all recognition after a neutering. He’s a really smart kitten, bites and runs around like crazy. So far the loss of testicles hasn’t affected him, although with lowered testosterone he does seems a bit more affectionate. Still, volunteering him for catstration (yeah deliberate mispelling – ha!) seems like a horrible prank that the vet was surprisingly complicit with. No going back now! Not that the vet has stored his balls anyway. Which raises the question: What happens to them?! Is there a black market?
