I think it's best to just jump right in here and we can catch up later.

We spent New Year's up in Tahoe in a big nice house that I rented with 3 other families. Including our cousins Daniel and Kim from Davis. Daniel told a horrible story one night about how he killed his mom's cat by deciding to put her down while his mom was on vacation because he thought the cost to stabilize the cat to be excessive. And then proceeded to tell us that the vet tech (who he described as a "soft-hearted student") began begging him to release the cat to him so that she could run the tests required to stabilize the cat. So a veterinary nurse was begging him to let her save the cat but in Daniel's opinion the cat was not worth saving.

I was outraged and told him he needed to just stop talking. And didn't he spend $3000 on a hip operation for his 3 year old rottie? He said that was totally different. Ugh I was so mad. I loudly stated that I would happily pay $1000 to say goodbye to my cat in person.

So then I get home and holy crap my cat is dying! She hadn't had any food or water while we were gone, and had a raging tooth abcess and was on the verge of renal failure and sepsis and she was just a little 4 lb ball of teeth and fur and bones. And a fierce fierce will to live. We took her to the vet and after some abx she is good as new and I got to put my money where my mouth is.

My sweet Mazzycat is recovering at home and I swear cats are amazing animals. It's very hard to kill a cat. Mazzy just bounces right back and she seems totally fine.
