I just need to vent here for a moment.......I live in the city, and there's stray cats all over the place. The last two that adopted me are dumpster cats......J.A.C. is a the most recent, and she is still partly wild, she hasn't decided if this house life is for her. When she turned up, she brought a litter of four and parked them on the porch. I'm a big fat sucker and fed them. Still do. The four kittens are wild, we're working on them because we would love to get them friendly enough to get adopted. We got the mother fixed as soon as she warmed up enough to be tricked into a box. So that's the back story.... While at the vet's office with my adoptee Pudge, I mentioned I had a litter of young strays that I knew would start breeding soon. The vet asked ME what WE were gonna do about that litter and OFFERED to fix the males for $25. and the females for $45 and not charge the office call charge at all. Turns out there were three females and only one male. I trapped them and took them in. I just got the bill and it was $280.00........what the heck! I just feel swindled......and I'm sure he feels justified .....so the relationship of trust is broken and now I need to find a new vet.... Thanks for listening, I just needed to scream into cyberspace!
