Need help with vet bills?

This forum is for cat lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your cat.

bump.... Meowmy is gonna go look at that right now.

My Meowmy is disabled, and my sister Megumi helps her with a lot of things, including anxiety control, and watching out for meowmy to have problems. (She can tell Meowmy to sit down before meowmy gets sick.)

Megumi is really ill, meowmy is forcing pills and food. Megumi is really mad at meowmy and cusses her out and hides. Meowmy cries.

Meowmy set up a fundraiser to help with big sister's vet bills.

and she is still selling her craftwork, but income will go to the vet for awhile:

Please pass these links around to fellow cat lovers, I think meowmy's zazzle art on things is really cool.

Gonna go look at your list now!

Almost all of the agencies on the list are unable to take applications for assistance because donations are down.

Some of the agencies have shut down their contact mailboxes or websites as well...

Hopefully, things will pick up for them.

If I knew there were resources out there like this, I would have my friend buddy with me still. My Buddy became sick befre Christmass a couple of years ago. I took him to the vet on Saturday because he had noticible simptoms of a Urinary trac infection. My worst fears were confirmed. I was sent home with some antibiotics and told to take him to the emergency care clinic if he became worse. He went from peeing in small amounts to not going at all. I took him to the emergency care clinc and was told he had a blockage and without surgery could only survive another 24 hours. The surigcal bill was around $900. There was no one that feels the way I do about my friends to lend me the money and I couldnt bear to see Buddy in pain so I made one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make and that was to say good bye to my friend and companion. It seems like every time I have to take one of my friends into the vet under similar circumstances I end up saying good bye to them. I find it very hard to believe that any veteraniarian in good conscience can think that euthanasia is an alternative to compasion. I asked them if they would consider a payment plan and they flat out said no. And then on Monay when I called my vets office they said I should have waited until Monday and they wold have worked something out with me. I am a single working woman taking in pets that others felt were desposable and had no worth when they outgrew their cuteness or became too much trouble to care for. Sometimes I dont get groceries for myself if my hairy kids need something. I live from paycheck to paycheck. Sure my bills are paid but there is not much left over for emergencies. I commend anyone that thinks that money should not be the reason that a family friend should have to give up their life and another pet mother should have to go ome with an empty carrying case that once held er best friend and a heart so broken it feels like it will never mend. You are angels without wings.

I'm so sorry you had to go through that.hugBuddy will always know that you loved him. Now you know there are some options if you have to face something like that again.
Hugs and purrs to you...

Oh how tragic.
It hurts my heart to think that finances should keep an animal lover without a furry friend.
My goal is to set up an organization for just that issue. I hope to have it up and running in a year. No one should have to experience what you did with Buddy.
