Dear Garfield

I am really perplexed and confused and I hope you can help me. I am just 6 months old and I have a little friend called Missy who lives next door. She is also 6 months old. We play together in our gardens and get on really well together. I thought we were going to be a steady couple and was looking forward to putting down roots, and maybe having kittens when the time was right. However, I was taken to the vets last week and when I came back my feelings for Missy are different. She came on pretty strong to me last night – you know what I’m saying – and I hadn’t a clue what to do. Last week I was pretty sure I knew what to do but now ..... It’s like there’s a big gap in my memory. Poor Missy was confused too – she thinks I have some one else but I don’t want anyone at all – period!

Dear Perplexed Peter

When you came back from the vets, did you feel any discomfort in your ‘private’ area? It sounds to me as if you were neutered Peter, and unfortunately, for you, this means no fun and no babies. The reason why you don’t know what to do is because you hadn’t done anything up to the time of your operation. If you had, you might have remembered something although even if you had tried to return Missy’s feelings, it would have been a frustrating episode for both of you.

Sorry to say, Peter, it’s a life of celibacy from now on but the operation isn’t all bad you know. You’ll develop a nicer nature and won’t want to go traveling for long periods where you normally end up in terrible fights. The wounds from these fights can be very serious leading to Feline Aids and other horrible things so your Humans have done the right thing for you Peter. Perhaps Missy’s Humans can be encouraged to take her to the vet so that she doesn’t have any kittens. You can still be friends, just platonic that’s all.
