regular vet didn't tell me just how anemic she was, and a week had
gone by when something else could have been done. The vet was
concerned about tumors but X-rays showed nothing. He recommended
that a blood transfusion be done immediately, so he packed up his 22

closing for the day.
I picked Charlotte up at 11:30 last night (lots of coffee was needed
since it was an hour and a half drive) and she was so hungry! She
started chowing down right away. She now has doxycycline and
Prednisilone twice a day. Now we just have to wait for the rest of
the test results to come back. I'll keep you all updated.
Thank goodness for Visait was almost $900 yesterday. My mom
asked me, Why didn't you just put her down? but I couldn't. She
doesn't want to die. She's purring and rolling over to be petted and
even yesterday when she didn't feel good she was going up to
everybody and looking for attention.

Laura, believe me when I say that many of us are in the same financial boat!  
But I wouldnt do anything different...these babies are MY responsibility, and I 
will do everything I can for them.

I'm glad Charlotte is feeling better...don't worry, she'll eat more as she 
improves.

 I've thought about checking it out, but I've met a few people who have been 
 turned down by Care Credit lately for no obvious reason.
 I suppose the rotting posts on the front porch won't be fixed this year, and 
 forget about painting the dining room. That's the most I've ever spent in one 
 day on a vet visit. And that's in addition to the $600 spent last week on 
 Tabby's teeth cleaning, Charlotte's initial exam, testing and meds and 2 
 neuters.
 Charlotte already is more active and is walking around the turtle room. She 
 still isn't eating as much as I'd like, but she just seems so more normal 
 now. And I really liked the vet we saw yesterday (Dr Michael Ray at the Cat 
 Clinic of Roswell in Roswell, GA, for all you Georgians on the list). I think 
 we've found a new vet.

  Laura, hang in there as long as you can and if they have
  Care Credit in your area, try it instead of Visa. you
  don't have to pay interest if you pay it off wihtin a
  year. you can reach them at www.geoonlineservice.com or
  1-866-893-7864. they have gotten me thru a couple of
  $600.00 bills and a big dental bill. i don't know if
  they are in your area or your vet uses them, but would be
  worth a try. dorlis
