Extra HUGS to you going through this Tom!Frigga will soon be home, waggy, groggy, and licking you warmly.. "Hi Dad, Odin, HopSing and Mom.. didja miss me? WHERE'S MY SPAY DAY PRESENTS???" wagging her happy sable butt.You may have a job keeping her quiet for the first few days, but she will do just great. I absolutely understand how you feel.. it is letting go, giving them unto someone else's care, like any 'parent,' letting a child go in for a surgery, even a relatively rutine one. This is terribly hard on you... I hope you will cuddle Odin extra, and soak up the purrs from Hop Sing during this time. Frigga will be soon back in your arms where she wants to be-- and she will soon have forgotten all about it.
