Hi, I'm new to this forum. I currenlty own 2 cats, both approximately 10 years old and I own a 1-year-old Bichon Frise. Anyway, today was a bad day. My orange cat, Grover, had an abscess on the side of his face that was a large as a baseball. I called my vet and he is on vacation so he listed 3 other vets to take him to, the first 2 couldn't fit him in today (Friday). I ended up having to take him about 40 miles from my home to a vet I never heard of. They ended up having to put him in surgery so they could drain the abscess. The cat is now fine, but I'm not. It cost me $301.40 for this. I think that is absolutely ridiculous!!! But what could I have done? I couldn't let the cat suffer all weekend. So now I'm beating myself up about spending that much money (that I really didn't have to spend) on my 10-year-old cat. Okay, I think I feel a little better now. Thanks for letting me rant. What would anyone else have done?
