Our first Spay Day
The Spay Day got off to a good start, when one of our volunteers arrived at the clinic with a "Save Lives, sterilize" taxi! The volunteers all arrived on time at 9 am (though one volunteer could not make it at the last minute) and the four cats arrived shortly after.
Jolanda our clinic manager explained everyone's roles and then the volunteers were showed around the clinic.
The vet was very patient and explained what she was doing so that everyone could learn how to assist in future operations. The clinic staff were also very nice - popping in to help a few times during the day.
We were glad that we started small with only 4 cats as there wasn't such a rush factor to finish up. Some of the cats recovered very quickly after surgery, while others took a little longer, but all of them were released by 2 pm. All of us called it a day by 2.20 pm - tired but satisfied that we managed to get the cats done.
The volunteer told us that the cats were all doing well this morning and eating well. So the first Spay Day seems to have gone well!
A Big thank you to all the volunteers who gave up their Sunday to help with Spay Day!
