Evelyn, Luna looks amazing! We adopted 2 kittens from CATS 14 years ago. We stopped by a year ago and brought you extra cat food and showed you photos of the cats.

We lost Cleo in March, Bandit is 14 now and on chemo treatment. We LOVE him and are grateful we found him through you.

I would love another cat, but cannot cause stress for Bandit. We also cannot afford a cat that may have expensive needs.

Thank you for all that you have done on behalf of cats in need of a loving home. We wish you all the best in your move.

I hope he doesn't have a broken leg. I don't know how much, but it will be way too much, like all vet bills. Cost of adopting a stray cat runs $ 500 for me, because it's 2 visits, one for the initial shots and checkup and one for the neutering.( I have always wound up with male cats by coincidence)

I really find vet bills to be obscene. Did you know vets are among the highest professional earners in America?

I once asked a vet for a single worm pill. They looked pained by this challenging request, made me wait 20 minutes, then finally handed me a single pill and charged me $ 10.

thanks for your concern.brought him to the vet, he was in a fight. vet pulled two cat nails out of his head and his leg is infected. they are gonna clean him up and i gotta pick him up at 1pm.
about $350. not bad this time, lucky.
maybe we acn get them covered under obamacare! the vets do charge just as much as st. vincents hospital at times.

Tippy is happy and in good health, and so far, I do not need to take her to a vet.

If you went to the emergency Vet the cost would have been triple.it thank goodness it was not hurt worse.

See what I mean though? Some disinfectant, some tweezers, BANG $ 350. I don't know, just seems like a lot to me. Sure, the vets had to go thru school, etc. I still think its a racket.

Glad your little guy is ok. My 3rd cat is being held in New Haven for the moment.... can't wait to get him, maybe saturday.
