As a responsible parent I have decided that I must come to terms with the fact that my beloved young one was born in the wrong body.
There were signs, from refusing to use the proper bathroom, to the behaviors that were wrong for them; still I subsisted in a state of denial thinking it was just a phase. But even as the behaviors got to a point there was no denying them, no saying they were faking it I still was in denial. Even after the incident when he RAN from the kitchen in complete terror at the sight of a mouse and hid under the bed for over an hour I still thought “odd but maybe just a phase”
But today, I came home and found him in the bathroom, drinking from the toilet. That was the last straw, I may not think it was normal or right, but it was right for him.
So after a deep breath (and a few beers) I have decided to accept conditions as they are, and embrace that my beloved Buster is in fact a Dog, born in a Cat’s body. Now to find if there is a surgery to correct this for him & maybe do a kick starter campaign to help cover the cost, apparently cross species reassignment surgery is not covered by health insurance
