such a hopeless feeling. my kitty emil (who will be one on new year’s eve) is desperately ill = 105+ fever since thursday (its sat morn) and not a drop of water nor morsel of his favorite Iams can food will he take.
evening visit to the 24 hour emergency vet on thursday night. $300 later and a shot of antibiotics and a passel of antibiotics to give twice a day…no idea what is wrong as the only symptom is the fever – no sign of injury or swollen belly or anything else.
a call to a local vet (referred by former) says a followup visit and bloodwork will be over $200.
here’s the rub – money is so extremely tight right now i had to dip into my reserves for the first bill and can’t afford the second one… so on top of the stress of the cat’s illness is the guilt of not being able to provide enough for him.
this economy sucks.
pray or whatever you do for my kitty that he can pull thru this…
