    Default Tui's spay is booked - She's OK :)

    The rescue had recommended that I wait until the beginning of June before having Tui spayed. However, in the last week she has become very hormonal to the point that the term "sex pest" would not be inappropriate.

    She is taking an enormous interest in Tethra's bottom She can be distracted by food or sleep, but otherwise she is attempting to either scent mark or nip his bottom. This produces prolonged circling. It also seems to prompt similar behaviour from Tethra and he is attempting to hump her or indeed sit splayed on top of her. My OH thinks I am worrying unnecessarily and his view is that they are enjoying themselves The atmosphere just seems too tense to me though and I'm concerned that Tethra will get fed up with it, which although unlikely could lead to a fight. Their bond has been developing in a very positive way and to me it would seem silly to take chances. She is also spraying urine and leaving lots of puddles of urine in the run, which by itself I could easily put up with.

    So I have booked it with my usual vet for next Tuesday. Tethra will go in with her. I find it scary even though it needs to be done.

    Please keep my precious girl in your thoughts.

    You'll only be just over a week early anyway so it has to be done. Pre-spaying vibes being sent your way. We don't like putting them through it but it will be better in the long run. xx

    I totally empathise with your anxiety. You are definitely doing the right thing though as Tui is obviously very hormonal now. I hope that her spay goes as well as Elsa's did. Sending millions of vibes xx

    Lots of vibes for Tui's spay. I remember how nerve wracking it is! It certainly sounds like it needs to be done sooner rather than later!

    Spay vibes for Tui! Xx It sounds like it's definitely time for her spay. They will be much happier when it's all done! How big is she in comparison to tethra now? Xx
