More Cats

In a tough economy, when a cat suffers from a disaster like being hit by a car or developing a chronic illness, what’s a responsible pet owner to do when they can barely pay their bills? Help is available for just these situations. Programs such as the Feline Veterinary Emergency Assistance Program or the resources listed at the Yellow Dog Blog can help you pay for the treatment that may save your cat’s life. Local humane societies often offer free or low-cost vaccination and spay/neuter clinics. If you’re fortunate enough to have a little money to spare, why not start a good Samaritan fund at your local vet clinic, or let them know you can help if there’s a special case?
