I brought my cat, Pig to the vet recently because he had been howling like he was in pain. I suspected crystals in his bladder. Once I got him to the vet, my suspicions were confirmed. Crystals from his urine had built up in his bladder, preventing him from urinating. To relieve this, they tried to flush them out and inserted a catheter. The hope was that upon the removal of the catheter, he would begin normal urination again. This, however, was not the case. They removed the catheter only to find that he had blocked back up again. So, the solution to this now becomes surgery. The surgery will open up his urethra in order to allow him to pass the crystals. It has minimal risks and he will lead a happy normal life with it. Unfortunately, it comes with a pretty hefty price tag—$1000-$1500 (that is on top of the $500 bill we already have for the procedures they performed).
My mom and I aren’t very well off financially and this is going to be a pretty big stretch for us to pay for. I was really hoping that you guys could possibly help take some stress off of us by donating anything you can or feel comfortable donating. I would appreciate absolutely anything you could give.
We found Pig when he was about a week old and had been abandoned by his mother. We bottle fed him, loved him, and raised him. He is an important member of our family and we need him to be better. He is a sweet, sweet boy. I love him a lot and I really need some help.
When comments are better than the article, Atlantic edition (“The Cheapest Generation: Why Millennials arent’ buying cars or houses, and what that means for the economy”)
Every time someone says we’re a lazy and entitled generation I’m going to show them this
They should be happy most of us haven’t moved to the moon yet
That actually sounds like a good idea at this point
(whispers) its a-ok to rely on fictional characters to get you through your life bc life is hard ok if it makes you happy stick w/ it and anybody who says otherwise can go fuck themselves (pets u gentlee)
I call for a show of hands.
Reblog if you’ve ever gotten emotional support from a fictional character.
Cause I know I have.
“i want to wear shorts because it’s hot but i really hate my legs” an autobiography
“I want to wear shorts but i didnt shave” the sequel.
“I want to wear shorts but I don’t tan and I’d rather not blind you” The trilogy
“I want to wear shorts but my huge dick always sticks out” a pop-up book
One of these is not like the rest
You mean the one that’s male and has absolutely no business being on a “women dealing with body-shaming” post? Yeah, I noticed that too.
I think they mean the one where you equate gender to genitals.
Today’s photo is of the rising Moon. How could anyone have ever thought the world was flat?
HI EVERYONE I’M BACK and eating bread with one hand and packing a bag with another and filling my queue with my third hand and typing this with my nose so obviously I’m going away again in a moment
Just wanted to say hi
and to give you fair warning that Star Trek: Into Darkness was literally perfect so that’s all I’m going to blog once I get properly back on the internet. I’ll tag all spoilers.
Col. Chris Hadfield: “Safely home - back on Earth, happily readapting to the heavy pull of gravity. Wonderful to smell and feel Spring.”
