It's not fixed, it's broken.
Today our kitten goes in to get broken. Yes, I know the proper term is "She's going in to be fixed" but when she comes out of the operation exactly how is she "fixed"? She's not broken right now, and the surgery is to stop her procreational activities (and the hours of meowing) -- and that biological imperative was working fine when she went in. Thus, when she comes out, she's broken... not fixed.
In any case, I was greeting with a similar LoLCat this morning. Since her surgery requires 11 hours of no food/water all of the animals get to suffer with her. Even the dog's food, what was left of it, is hidden as a few of the cats will eat that even if they have their own. All of them had a similar look to the cat in the pic above.
