I decided that Enchong had to be temporarily banished from the room until it was "safe" for everyone (all female cats except Dapper coz she is fixed). I dont want another pregnant (with busted eyeballs) cat (there are already 17 in the house) to add to my problems.
I have been planning to take Enchong to the vet for weeks but the rain and my problematic sleeping patterns have made it very difficult for me to follow through. Finally last Thursday July 21, I managed to call the vet and arrange for my cat's castration.

It wasnt hard to catch Enchong and throw him in the carrier. Normally him and the other cats would be hanging out by the door of my room when I would come out. For obvious reasons, they think im the Santa Claus of catfood.

IMO, My Enchong is not an ordinary cat. He is the sweetest cat in my room and he looooves me.Sometimes he does act obsessed though.

Fortunately there was an FX parked where commuters regularly wait for rides. I also ran into a neighbor while I was trying to board the bulky carrier on the FX vehicle. He helped pull the stroller up the back of the car. We chatted for a bit during the trip talking about cats and pets. I got off at Tikling. The travel time to the Bethlehem clinic took only 10 minutes.
Honestly, I was a little hesitant to have Enchong's balls whacked off. But I know this is a favor Im doing for him and not just for my female cats. I want him to live a longer and healthier life. I must admit though that I was so worried of having to leave him overnight at the vet and the surgery going awry or something..

I didnt stick around too long. I was there to drop off Enchong for his scheduled surgery and also to get supplies for the rat babies. So I bid my baby boy good bye amid his incessant cries. I stopped to also get some nice tasting yet cheap ensaymadas by the store beside the vet clinic. Too bad I wasnt able to take any photos. Next time maybe.
The trip back to town didnt take long either. Some passengers on the jeep were kind enough to also help pull the huge sack of catfood aboard the vehicle. When I got off at town I lugged my bag of cat treats to the tricycle stand. I also bought 4kilos or rice for myself and the dogs. Our dogs dont like dog kibbles too much. They prefer my own rice mix (ie left over and fresh cooked rice).
When the animals heard the tricycle stop in front of the house, they were all in a frenzy. The dogs were barking, the tiny cats from my brother's house wormed their way out of the small windows to welcome me home.
