I brought Bosco to the vet today which is always fun times. He is a very good cat when he goes. He doesn't try to bite or scratch the vet and all I have to do to get him into the carrier is open the door. He has no idea what's going on and is all "oh cool a new thing I can crawl into...wait...NOOOOOOO!" At least this is what I imagine he says.
The vet tells me that he lost about a pound which is good because he is fat. He now weighs 16lbs rather than 17lbs. What's not good is that he needs a dental cleaning. Being a life long cat owner I know that this is going to cost me approximately one of my kidneys, possible a spleen as well.
The cost of today's visit totaled $317.00
The cost of the dental surgery will be between $500-$600. I'm guessing it will be more than that. Poor baby though. I could see that his gums were inflamed and one tooth looks really bad. He's on antibiotics for ten days. Good thing he eats anything so I can sprinkle it in his food.
So this cat lady needs to hustle and earn some more green. I can see it now, hanging out on the street corner.
Random lady: "I need money to support my 5 kids."
Me: "I need to pay for my cat's dental cleaning."
Everyday I'm hustlin'
He's lucky he's so cute. He really is a trophy cat. He sits at home all day. I work and bring home the cat food and cuddle with him and tell him how cute he is.
I am attempting to train him to be more helpful around the house. I'm starting slow with teaching him how to brush my hair.
