Cats are expensive
So a few weeks ago my cat started peeing around the house which we attributed to getting 2 puppies a couple months ago and him marking his territory, wrong. Apparently, male cats can get their urethra "block up" as the end is the smallest part of it or something and females dont have this problem. In the past few days he hadnt been going much and only getting a couple drops out when he did and letting out some strange meows so when the vet opened this morning we took him in.
His bladder was "enourmous" and they said we only have 12 hours from when they get blocked till things get real serious, like kidneys shutting down. Right now hes being anesthetized and getting a catheter put in... till monday when they'' take it out and see if he can go on his own, if not then it'll prolly require surgery. And then of course the money, they wanted a 200 dollar down payment of the 675 dollar estimate, and the surgery if needed will cost a lot more, one of the cats my parents had many years ago had the same problem.
Pretty awful day, woke up from the best dream ever to all this. I hope they accept they peanuts I get paid in.
