It’s 2am, Neil’s shuffling into the kitchen to get a glass of water, he flicks on the light and turns around to find himself face to face with a giant tabby cat, who’s been sitting there on the countertop watching him, with it’s eerily sentient eyes. He jumps, and, on his instinct driven backwards step, trips over the water bowl behind him in a cacophony of clattering metal and grunting, before landing on his ass in a painful thud. Andrew, instantly awake and already running out of the room, ready to beat an intruder to death, half blind given he was dead asleep 2 seconds ago, falls over Neil on his way into the room and the both of them end up sprawled on top of each other on the kitchen floor. The cat jumps off the counter and sits on Andrew’s back.
hey i decided to make a proper post. around two days ago my cat started wheezing and wasnt eating and was acting really lethargic and needy and we brought her to the vet today. her x rays showed that her lungs were inflamed and she wasn’t getting enough air. this visit ended up being $240, $30 for her check up, $160 for her chest x rays, and $50 for steroid pills to help the inflammation. i already had to borrow $80 between my brother and my mom to cover these costs. they still don’t know what’s wrong with her (they say that it could be anything from asthma to a serious bacterial infection), so we have a check up on monday, which is another $30, and they want to do bloodwork ($70) and an ultrasound (i don’t remember the cost). they also suggested that i send the x rays to a radiologist, which is an addition $100 cost. thanks to donations people have already made, i can probably cover most of mondays visit (the check up cost and the bloodwork cost). i will try to get a copy of the bill when we go in monday, so you guys can see proof and see the costs broken down. just getting a diagnosis is going to cost over $400, probably more if they decide they want to run additional tests, and obviously i will have no idea how much the actual treatment is going to cost until they figure out the source of the problem. i am so devastated and i hate to ask for money but she’s my world and i don’t know what to do. my paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any more questions about the situation you can dm me. i will keep updates on here and will hopefully post proof of the bill when i get a copy of it on monday.
