How do you say no to a pet that depends on you?Posted Thursday, September 1, 2011, at 8:33 PM
Kit Kat has been with us over ten years now and if he had his choice, he would sleep on my left arm every night. If I am watching TV, he will be there to get and give some loving.
Last week I noticed him really slowing down and he started wanting to stay outside. We humored him at first, but when we brought him in and found that he was not eating, and drinking very little, we surmised something was up.
Took him into the vet and sure enough he had some type of major infection, but we could not identify where it came from. They gave him a cocktail of antibiotic shots for three days in a row.
We did not ask how much at the time but wow, it must have been super stuff. Over $100! If we had asked, would we have been able to say no? Probably not, but...wow!
It seems to have worked. He is sleeping with me again and seems to be his old self, but what if it comes back? Is there a limit?
