Had a heckofa scare last night......

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well, last night we got home from the lake, and i went in to check on the kittens. They were out of food, so i went back into the kitchen and got them a can.

They are in my spare bathroom, and at 4.5 weeks, ruuning around now they made it out of the box that they were born in. Well, i was trying VERY hard to watch my feet, cause they LOVE to grab ankles and scratch. well, i shuffled my feet to turn to put the can on their plate and i heard a SQUEAK and felt fuzz, but it was to late. I had gotten the only girl

shr ran screaming, and i scooped her up, she was crying and gulping for air, i was in tears, and freaking OUT. I thought maybe she was jsut scared and hurt, so i held her for for a bit. she would calm down, the start flalying and screaming. I was scared beyond belief, and crying very hard, and telling her i was soooooo sorry!

So i called the emergency vet, and they said come right in. So i brought her in, and they put her in a oxygen tent. They came out to talk to me about 20 min later. Said that she seemed ok other then she sounded a bit moist in the lungs, so they figured bruised lung, and wanted to keep her in the oxygen overnight. i said ok, worried how i was going to pay for it being newly laid off.

then i saw a booklet about ways to extend payment on emergency care and such, it was a cc for vets so i applied. Got Approved!!! So i felt relieved for that, and we went home, for the vets to call in the am.

went home, had a shot to calm nerves, and went to bed. All this had happened at 11pm!

At 8 am, they called and said that she was fine, and able to come home!! I sent up my prayers and Thank-Yous, and went and got my baby girl.

$350 later for jsut a overnight stay in a oxygen tent, she is home, happy and biting my fingers .

Man, these lil critters cost more for one visit then i do all year, but i wouldnt change a thing!

Oh wow! I'm so sorry, but am glad she's fine now. I'm sure that was rather traumatic for you both.

there are credit cards just for vet care? i need to look into this - my cards are always so full, because i buy other stuff with them. it'd be great to have one that only worked at the vet!

I'm always worried about stepping on my cats tails when its feeding time, so goodness how you go on with a bunch of kittens that are full of beans and don't particularly look where they are going

aww I'm glad shes OK now, bless her and I hope you've managed to calm down now
