A neighbor came lugging a crate (no door!) up the path the day before yesterday. It contained SIX kittens that she had found at the intersection just before my house. Just out of sight of my door--where they could have brought them had they had guts to do so.
Thank you, someone, for taking another $1100 from me. $1100 that no one has, right now.
FeLV/FIV tests @ $30 each = $180
FVRCP @ $4 each = $24
Capstar @ $2 each = $12
Rabies (when old enough) @ $5 each =$30
3 pediatric neuters = $300
3 pediatric spays = $400
Hernia repair on 2 = $150
Total = $1096
That doesn't include food, litter, worming, and further flea treatment.
Just think. If you'd gotten your own cat fixed at your vet ($250) or local spay/neuter clinic ($50, or sometimes free) you wouldn't be stealing from me, and from the veterinarians who give a discount.
And, worse yet, your cat is going to have another litter. And another. And another.
Bless you, Carmen, for stopping when you saw something that didn't look right!
