I am interrupting my regularly scheduled DIY programming to introduce you to Billie and Martin.
Billie did not cost $2200.00 that is what it cost to keep her alive, I will get to that in a minute.
Billie is a Ragdoll cat, if you are not familiar with the breed, they are called Ragdolls because of their easy going nature. When you pick them up they go limp like ragdolls. They are often called puppy cats, as they act more like puppies, following you around, greeting people at the door, and having no fear of anything.
As cute as she is, she is a chewer and that is what got her in trouble 5 years ago when she was just a little over a year old. She was not eating and vomiting, 3 trips to the vet, lab tests, IV's, antibiotics,
Now we are into the 4th of July weekend and had to go to the emergency vet $$$$$$ only to discover she had something blocking her intestines.
She had surgery and the vet came out after and said "I usually have no idea what they have eaten, but by looking at the red nose this is a plastic mouse"
Yes, this is the plastic body and head of a toy mouse that came out of her intestines....Now. how in the world did she swallow that !!! So, I did not start out to spend that kind of money, but my rule of thumb is, if my pets can be fixed and live full, happy lives, then I gotta do, what I gotta do to make them well.
My other love is Martin
Martin was rescued from the pound when he was 2, he is much smarter then Billie, but kind of a scardy cat around everyone but me.
Even though they are both fixed Martin loves Billie, sometimes a little to much, if you know what I mean! LOL
Wishing you a PUUURRFECT Day!
