I love how he meows from down the hallway. Cracks me up.
I've spent more than $1200 in one go on our dog. She had cancerous tumors to be removed. We set up a payment plan for the vet. Unfortunately, the cancer was a nasty strain and the last time, it became clear that it had spread, so we nixed a scheduled surgery. At that point, the cancer had come back 3 times, so even if we had $5,000 for chemo and such, the chances of it working were slim. She made it another six months on steroid pills which cut down the inflammation and the pain. It's too bad we lost her at nine. Our first three cats lasted until 22, 19, and 14. (The last one was diabetic.) I wish the dog had made it another five years.
But we're not getting another one. We really can't afford it.
