So, I had to do the whole euthanasia process on my cat yesterday. He was a real good buddy to me and was there for me through a tough period in my life. I only had him for a year and a half. My first pet, I got him when he was a kitten and he kept me company in my apartment. Just me and him. On Monday everything was normal and he was fine. On Tuesday morning I woke up and he was lying on the kitchen floor making horrible noises, clearly in pain, his belly swollen, his little back legs wouldn't hold him up and he had puked everywhere. I rushed him to the vet and they told me he had gone into kidney failure...nothing I could do really, it's genetic. I signed a form consenting to the euthanasia and left. I couldn't bear to kiss him goodbye. It was unreal how quickly it all happened. Anyway Im pissed because it's also unreal that it cost me $380.00 to kill my cat. It was an automatic $200.00 for the euthanasia, automatic $100.00 for the "emergency" because I didn't have an appointment (it was 10am and the vet was open), $50.00 for the "consultation" and tax. What a big fat fucking deluxe rip off. Fuck you veterinarians, you heartless priks.
