Good kitty news

29 Sep

Our cat, Speedbump, started walking around like he was drunk a few months ago.  Several trips to the vet later, what we thought was ear mites or an ear infection turned out to be an inner ear polyp.  Every vet we went to told us that it was going to cost between $2,500 and $3,500 to have it removed.

No way to do we have that much extra money just hanging around in our bank accounts.  (I wouldn’t be typing this on a free WordPress page if I did.)

Luckily, we found out today that the last vet we took him to is willing to do a less invasive surgery that won’t cost more than about $400.  Yay!  The downside is that there’s a chance it could come back, but frankly, we could have it removed eight times and still have spent less than $3,500.

That’s the one piece of good news I have going for me right now, so that’s the one and only thing I decided to write about tonight.  I don’t want this place to be heavy.  The background is pink, for Zenu’s sake.
