Guys I NEED a huge hug PLEASE READ.

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I just went and picked lilly up...the person said 183.00 dollers, I kinda looked at them funny, and they said did you know she was PREGNANT. I'm so upset I can hardly type. I know I did the right thing, I know that they do that. I just didn't think it would happen to me. Now my whole budget is almost gone... I KNOW the cat that got her pregnant was all black. And I just, ugh, She had four kittens. This hurts so bad. I have to go compose myself and try to move ashton so she can have the crate. She has to stay in for 10 days, not two. I think i'm going to be sick.

OUCH!!! You had to do it, though. My mom once got a surprise, like that, with a dog.

Ok I am confused, didn't Lilly just have babies like a month ago? Is Lilly the cat that got out for like a week and you just found her again and took her to the vet???
Wow! That's a big vet bill. Why was it so much? Did they do sepcial stuff to her since she is pregnant?

No lilly is a feral and she is around 7 months old. Her mother snowwhite had kittens three 1/2 weeks ago. My cats don't get out. They are either outside cats or inside cats. Neo and Moe are inside. Lilly, ashton, sherbert, & snowwhite are my ferals.

I'm sorry what do you mean your ferals , Are they wild and don't cuddle and stuff ? and do they live outside?

they are ferals, wild cats, they were born outside and never owned by anyone. Ashton is warming up after monthes of working with him, and snowwhite is friendly with my husband and I after a long time with work with her. Lilly will let me touch her if i'm lucky(she has gotten unfriendly latly), and sherbert I can't get very close to.

Aww, Val, I am so sorry to hear that!!

Sending major hugs to you. If I ever find a black cat, it's yours, hon, I promise

Knowing it was the right thing helps a little, but I'm sure it hurts. Talk about it as much as you need to. We're here for you!

*hugs* Val, you're a great gal through and through. We truly do need more people like you in our world! If there is anything I can do for you to help make this better let me know I'll do what I can.

Oh Honey...I'm so sorry that you had go through that! But you know that it really is the best thing even though it's a very hard pill to swallow right now. You are doing the very best you possibly can do...and I personally am very proud of you! Keep your chin up Val! Sending you big bear hugs right now! (((((((((((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

I want to just crawl under a rock.

The foster kitty got loose and is running around the chicken coop, luckly we can close the room off...
Ashton was MIA and we found him hiding under the vanity in the bathroom.

I think i'm in WAY over my head. Just a few more weeks, and everything will be okay.

Val...the main thing to me is that you are trying so desperately to help these cats. I am so sorry to hear about what happened and my prayers are with you. You didn't know she was pregnant, and I know you would have never had taken her in if you knew. (to the vets to be fixed that is)

As for the ferals, your ferals...I understand that...some people may not...but the way I feel (and I think you do too) is that even though they are wild and do not like to be touched yet, you love them and are trying to get them used to you and so to you they are "your ferals" I have 3 like that. All outside...they are wild as can be...but I am in the process of taming them...one even lets me pet him a bit until he gets spooked and runs away. The other two are females which I am in the process of trying to trap to have spayed but so far no luck.

Your heart is very big Val and you are to be commended for that!!!!

Oh Val, I'm so sorry! I know it doesn't help right now, but it really was still the right thing to do. 7 months old is too young to have kittens, and there could have been complications, etc. etc. etc. Then you would have had 4 more spays/neuters, vet bills, hungry mouths etc. etc. etc.

I know it doesn't help, I'm just trying to be logical and right now it's emotional. But you really did the right thing for both Lily and yourself.

((((((((HUGS))))))))))

You did the best you could! You didn't know and at least she is doing OK. Give her kitty hugs form us and know we know you did the right thing! Now she is safe and healthy and in good hands...yours!
(((HUGS)))
post #19 of 28
Oh, you poor thing!!! And you were SO trying to do the right thing!
You didn't know, and somehow, I feel that it was "all in the greater plan of things..." You are a wonderful caring person, to do all you do, for the little kitties, like you do! So, sending a {{HUG}} your way!!! Along with some of my friends, I feed some feral kitties in our town. My friends are wonderful, and take them (When they can catch them!) into some terrific vets that give discount spaying/neutering. But the kitties always seem very interested when we come around, but NOT enough to quite trust us,(though we give them food, water etc all the time! ) I think, just knowing they are being taken care of, as well as we can possibly help them, is such a comfort for us.

I don't think this question was answered... I want to know why it was so big. They were removing her uterus...and there were babies there...but why charge SO MUCH MORE???

I'm sorry to say this...but I think you got taken advantage of.

Hugs hun.

Sorry to hear about that. I think it's great that you are doing so much to help these cats - don't become disheartened!

It is known that they charge more when the cat is pregant. I guess the op is harder for them. I was avoiding this question, because "removing the kittens" makes me want to be sick and I just couldn't handle it last night. I'm going to have to go vet shopping. I really like this vet, but do not care for the office staff. I think he is slightly more expensive then vets that are further away from home, but not much.

yep, that is how I feel. I feel like since I feed them and can touch lilly kinda, even pick her up and I can carry ashton they are "mine" or atleast mine to care for. I worked very long and hard to get this far with them. With ashton i'm just learning how wild he still is. I moved him in the house so lilly could have the large crate, he let me carry him into the bathroom, but I havne't seen him since I put him in there! (he is hiding really good) I have known him since he was 8 weeks old and he still doesn't trust people. Same with snowwhite. I can pet her and touch her kittens (so can dh), but anyone else even looks at them and she get inbetween them and the person and guards. So they are "wild" animals, but they are my wild animals and I love them.

Awww I'm sorry, money IS such a pain.
Just earlier this week, when we were finally starting to be a little ok again, we were "thinking" of buying a puppy, but the faits turn and instead I'm having to buy some $10k car. which we definelty do not have the money for.

Always expect the unexpected, specially when it comes to money.

Good luck with it all.

That is so sad. But if she is outside it was going to be hard to catch her between pregnancys. Seems like your day today has been full of ups and downs.

This is so sad! I am so sorry it had to be this way! You couldn´t have known! I hope you feel better.
HUGS!
