Perspective is important.

He's not spending $11,000 on healthcare for a pet cat, he's spending $11,000 to keep his happy life tragedy-free.

That's OK. My cat wants to claw your heart out and eat your liver, so it all balances out.

I'd spend any amount of money to save any one of my 5 cats. When my cat Chewy was diagnosed with CRF, I immediately began looking into the kidney transplant option, as she was only 9 and I lived in one of the few cities with a vet school that performed the procedure at the time. Sadly, she was misdiagnosed by a vet who assumed, since I was a student, I wouldn't want to spend all the money needed to get a correct diagnosis, and never offered me the option. By the time the renal lymphoma was properly diagnosed by a competent vet, it was too late to save her. I don't regret a single penny I spent once the correct diagnosis was made by that competent vet, even though I couldn't keep her with me.

/went after the bastard incompetent vet who didn't offer me any diagnostic options and got back every penny, though. He swore from then on out he would offer the testing to every owner. I like to think of that as Chewy's legacy.

Ten years ago, I had a sick cat that needed a CAT scan (har!). The proceedure cost $150. Last year, I had another cat that needed the scan. This time, it cost $950. Why the big difference? My theory is pet health insurance, which is growing in popularity. Just as in human medicine, health insurance is inflationary. If there is a third party payer, the health care providers are going to milk it for all they can. Of course, their agreements with the insurance carriers is that they will not charge non-insured patients less than what they carge the insurance company (to do otherwise is considered insurance fraud in human health insurance). So the cost of care goes up for everyone.

The writer states that cats have no concept of death. He should have been around to witness a younger cat of mine keep vigil for an older one that died last year. He spent the last day of the old girl's life rubbing her paw with his and nuzzling her. When she passed, he mourned for days. While it isn't right to attempt to personify their behavior, we can recognize that they are capable of emotion and have the same basic understanding of life that we do.

I just want to address something from TFA if I could. It'll probably be ignored, but I think it should to be said.

But I was not fully aware of how the same wonderful but costly technologies for prolonging human life are also revolutionizing veterinary care.

It's sort of the other way around. Most of the wonderful stuff prolonging human life developed in the past few centuries was tested originally on animals. Thanks to our ever growing understanding of the relationships between human and non-human animal anatomy/physiology, our medical understanding has grown exponentially faster than it did a few hundred years ago. Even if it's not initially tested on common companion animals like cats/dogs, they can be easily adapted to them.

Also, Mr. Fuzzypaws, that is simply adorable. Is that your kitten? Does he/she have a name?

OK, interesting theory, except that with pet health insurance, the heath care provider doesn't have anything to do with the money. The whole thing is between the pet owner and the insurance company. The owner pays full price for all services, has the vet office fill out a form listing diagnoses and treatments, then when approved, the owner receives reimbursement.

I'm going to suggest that the reason the procedure went up by $900 is that it was done ten years later.

Yeah, I'll go along with that. The night my dog died, my cat laid down right next to her, snuggling and trying to keep the dog warm. Found them the next morning, the cat trying to wake the dog by meowing and licking her face as she always did. She couldn't grasp that the dog wasn't going to wake up.

Never seen a cat more depressed than I did the following week. She'd lay on the dog's bed for most of that week, mewing pitifully. You hear things about animals not having feelings or a soul, but I call bravo sierra on that.

She also drank like a fish that week...

Felis Cattus, is your taxonomic nomenclature,
an endothermic quadruped carnivorous by nature?
Your visual, olfactory and auditory senses
contribute to your hunting skills, and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,
a singular development of cat communications
that obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
for a rhythmic stroking of your fur, to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;
you would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aide in locomotion,
it often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

O Spot, the complex levels of behaviour you display
connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

This is a very special Caturday for me. My bengal cat had been missing for a solid month and just returned home (3 lbs lighter and covered in fleas) on Thursday. He is currently curled up in his basket (on his heating pad, under a quilt I made for him when he was a kitten), taking yet another nap. Thank god I live in the boondocks - I was able to get a vet to see him within a few hours of his return, and for the whopping fee of $41.50, got a full exam, wormer, flea/tick medicine, and some ringworm lotion for him. If he ever thinks he will see the outside world again, he is sadly mistaken.

I despise cats with every part of my being and would shoot them on sight if I didn't live in town. Cats are the manifestation of Satan on Earth.

Anybody who would "fall in love" with a cat is a damn fool. Anybody who would pay that kind of money for any reason on a cat is simply too stupid to realize that they don't own the cat anymore, the cat owns them.

Yeah, that makes sense. Let your cat outside when he has a tendency to run off. Thats a smart move when you dont ever want to see your cat again. You cant just let pets do whatever they want, just like you wouldnt let kids do whatever they want. Unless you want your beloved pet to run off or be run over by a car or abused by some kids. I would never let my cat outside, even if i lived in the suburbs.

From TFA:

"Sometimes they find you, not vice versa."

That is so true. Plenty of cats have passed in and out of my life, but the one who stayed the longest -- all 15 years of her life -- came to our house as a stray kitten and made herself at home. We always said that she adopted us, not the other way around. She was an extremely dignified animal who also had a couple of humorously clumsy moments. She loved warm milk (and would give you a haughty, disgusted look if you served her cold milk) and being outdoors all the time.

When she became sick with feline leukemia, I immediately decided to have her put to sleep. She was sick and suffering, and it was awful to watch. The vet said that we could shell out a lot of money, and he could keep her alive for 3 months at the most. I chose to not torture her. I wasn't there when she passed, but I consoled myself by imagining how it must have been for her to feel the pain slip away, then everything quietly fade away.

My Tippy was born on a farm in rural Indiana. While she liked to wander around outdoors as a kitten, she still wanted to be inside where all the people (and nummy people treats) were. We let her wander in and out as she pleased.

I moved to a subdivision when Tippy was almost three months old. There are more cars going down this street in an hour than what went down our road in an entire day in the country. Our yard is maybe 1/4 to 1/5 of what it was at the farm. There are far more hazards here than there were back home (storm drains, lawn fertilizer, giant dogs, construction equipment, etc.), and I don't feel safe letting her on the screened-in porch, let alone outside.

There are many places where it is not safe to let your pets outside. Would you let your cat roam through NYC?

Are you sure you have a valid link to a pic at an image hosting site? (And please use something other than photobucket, their bandwidth gets killed by FARK threads. I recommend Flickr myself.) But as long as you have a valid image link, just select the text of it, click the purple HTML assistant button that looks like a picture frame, and it automatically puts the HTML in for you. If you don't have the HTML assistant buttons, turn them on in your profile. Here's an example of the HTML looks on one of my pics, before preview: <img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/13/18132832_caccfd3d8e_t.jpg"> (I left HTML disabled so you could see it, if I enabled it, it would resolve to a picture.)

You're wrong. Domesticated cats are not meant to go outside. Most any vet/veterinary assistant/person with common sense will tell you so. Yes, they feel the URGE to go outside; they're still related somewhat to panthers and tigers and lions, for God's sake, and seeing little furry things and feathered things make them want to stalk and hunt.

You're right. It's far better to imprison the poor creature where he can die of a broken heart, pining to do the things he was meant to do rather than letting him have some semblance of freedom.

Asshattery and ignorant. That animal would much rather be inside, warm, dry, tick and flea free, with clean water, lots of attention, and plenty of food.

Oh, but I do own one (well, my wife does), and pretty much always have. Just because I don't like them doesn't mean I like to see them imprisoned for the rest of their lives in order to assuage the fears of the people that supposedly love them.

Kyrana: Glad your cat came home, safe and unharmed.

I can empathize with the guy from TFA. When I adopted my greyhound at age 10, he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer 3 weeks later. We had the surgery and I opted to do chemotherapy as well, since thyroid cancer in dogs has a high rate of coming back, and spreading to the lungs. In the two and half years since, he's also pulled through liver crisis, and a month ago a heat stroke where he spiked at 109 degrees- after being outside for only 20 minutes, in the shade. Between my regular vet and my internal medicine specialist I know I've spent well over 7 thousand on this dog. However, he has rebounded from all of it to come back to otherwise very good health. My vets are in agreement that he is a miracle dog and has more lives than a cat.

I don't regret a single penny, and would spend twice as much, as that dog is my canine soulmate and I have never loved, or been loved, nearly so much in my life.

wouldn't it be easier to play dress-up with a doll rather than a live animal?

I own a duplex rental and there are many 'cat people' in that area. What happens? they all eventually decide to move to a place that doesn't allow animals. The cats end up in the streets as strays and live by ripping open the trashes of everyone who lives there. This competes with the other 'generous' people who own cats and let them roam the streets, doing the same already.

I love FARK. You could post "dog lovers DIAF" in a dog-related thread, and you would get death threats from dog lovers and probably banned from the site.
But dog lovers do it all the time in cat-related threads.
Go figure.

This is a very special Caturday for me. My bengal cat had been missing for a solid month and just returned home (3 lbs lighter and covered in fleas) on Thursday. He is currently curled up in his basket (on his heating pad, under a quilt I made for him when he was a kitten), taking yet another nap. Thank god I live in the boondocks - I was able to get a vet to see him within a few hours of his return, and for the whopping fee of $41.50, got a full exam, wormer, flea/tick medicine, and some ringworm lotion for him. If he ever thinks he will see the outside world again, he is sadly mistaken.

As much as I dislike cats, I find it sad that you would keep you pet a prisoner. He sounds like an outside cat (or at least a cat that likes the outdoors)... better to let him live the life he wants, even if that means its shorter than you'd like.

Yeah, that makes sense. Let your cat outside when he has a tendency to run off. Thats a smart move when you dont ever want to see your cat again. You cant just let pets do whatever they want, just like you wouldnt let kids do whatever they want. Unless you want your beloved pet to run off or be run over by a car or abused by some kids. I would never let my cat outside, even if i lived in the suburbs.


I love cats, but this whole keep-them-inside thing is just cruel. You walk your dog, even if it is on a leash, because you recognize that the animal wouldn't be happy spending its life inside. But cats, who are just as much natural explorers/predators as dogs are, are somehow supposed to be just fine with staring out your windows all day imagining what life out there must be like? That's not fair. Yes, your cat has an added risk of an early death via car, some dogs, raccoon, sadistic children, etc. But don't we all have an increased risk of death by some random happenstance every time we step outside our homes or get into a car? Yes, but we still do it because we want to live, and we know locking ourselves in the house all our lives may prolong our existence, but it won't be the same as actually living.

As the proud owner of a cat who is an outdoor cat not too far from downtown Toronto, and is also an outdoor cat (sometimes for a night or two at a time) on my family's farm in Quebec, I would much rather she get a chance to live her life and die at age 14 than be kept inside like something fragile and die at age 18 never having set foot in her natural environment.

She's 10 right now and has been going out all her life. She's scuffled with raccoons in the city, hidden (lord only knows where) from howling coyotes and hawks on the farm, hunted rodents and birds with impunity and otherwise led the sort of life that she enjoys. And if she goes out one day and doesn't come home, I'll be very sad. But not as sad as I would be if she was locked inside everyday and I kept coming home to find her staring wistfully out the window.

In short, making your car an indoor-cat, unless you live in some apartment building somewhere right next to a major freeway, is just selfish on your part. If you don't believe me, ask yourself: If I could explain the cost-benefit analysis of this to my cat, and have it fully understand me, what do I think it would choose?

Your cat would be out the door in a heartbeat, off to have a life. If you were nice enough to it, it would also come home. Most cats can handle themselves.

RedEyedWings: I love cats, but this whole keep-them-inside thing is just cruel.

QFT. I never saw this inside-cat thing till I moved to America, over here it's unheard of (as is de-clawing thank gods). Cats need freedom, or they're unhappy, end of. If they bugger off, it's tough, but that's the way it goes. You can't keep an animal in a style that's against its nature, no matter what the risks. Better not to have a cat at all. It's like having a dog and deciding it doesn't need walks.

As long as it's just cute pics of cats, and the dead cat pics get modded out, I think we're alright.

Every time I click on the Caturday posts it makes me want to get a cat so much. Unfortunately I live in a shoebox of an apartment so it would be like getting another roommate. My next place I get I'm getting a feline. I miss having cats around so much.

I love my cat but I am not a moron. No way in hell would I spend 11k on a cat. I suspect people that would simply never had kids and are confused and think that their cat is a human. If you must spend 11k on something how about giving it to a good cause that may save multiple human lives.

I like animals more than I like most people.

I still donate on a monthly basis to several charities benefiting people (doctors without borders, unicef, local homeless shelter, etc) as well as all my animal charities, but I still like animals better.

You also have to consider that an animal, in particular, a pet- you are wholly responsible for its health and well being. If you do not spend the money to care for it and get it treated, it has no other options at all. It cannot appeal to others, it cannot search for alternatives as a person could. Besides- things like that is what savings are for.

Oh, but I do own one (well, my wife does), and pretty much always have. Just because I don't like them doesn't mean I like to see them imprisoned for the rest of their lives in order to assuage the fears of the people that supposedly love them.


Let me guess. You put your wife's cat out on the sly, because you hope it won't come back feel sorry for it.

JackieRabbit:
The writer states that cats have no concept of death. He should have been around to witness a younger cat of mine keep vigil for an older one that died last year. He spent the last day of the old girl's life rubbing her paw with his and nuzzling her. When she passed, he mourned for days. While it isn't right to attempt to personify their behavior, we can recognize that they are capable of emotion and have the same basic understanding of life that we do.

My mother's cat stayed with our horse the entire night as he died. They were an odd pair, but again, the cat didn't eat for days and just howled in the barn, waiting for Chief to come inside.

Felis Cattus, is your taxonomic nomenclature,
an endothermic quadruped carnivorous by nature?



That always bothered me. The second line should not be a question, but a declarative statement. Spiner flubbed it.
