This is kiwi, She's been my baby since November 2009 when she came into my life at the sweet little age of one. She was rescued from a neglectful home and ended up in my loving arms where she has been ever since. She may think I am the weirdest mother calling her stupid names like "kiwi-wi-wi-wi-wi" and "kitty baby" etc. but she is just that, my kitty baby.
Some of you may have heard that Kiwi has been sick. Specifically, she has been having a hard time using the bathroom, and when she does manage to pee there is blood. So much so that she sometimes drips a little and leaves small puddles.
Now I keep trying to tell myself not to freak out, but when your cat is smearing blood on everything when she no longer has a uterus or ovaries its a little hard not to freak out. So I rushed her to the vet, and was lucky enough to get an appointment with-out an emergency fee. Several hours later, the tests were done, my cats butt was shaved and I had a huge bill but no real answers.
There are no signs of crystals or an infection and there is definite blood in the urine. But for now we wait because it is possible that she is having symptoms of some strange urinary disease and it will go away on its own. But if not, we try antibiotics and then more tests will be done. Sadly that is looking more and more like a possibility. Fortunately at the moment they think that what ever it is shouldn't be life threatening with the proper treatment.
So here is the problem, vet bills are super expensive and I have already spent more than $512 on visits, shots and tests. I have no clue how much the x-rays, antibiotics and anything else is going to cost. And I don't actually have any money so I am using a credit card which is a terrible idea but its all I got. Now depending on how much everything else is.... I wont even have that. Soo I'm opening up my print and art shop early:
