What a sad day for our family today. We have lost one of our family members. Stitch was his name. He was a lovely cat. A Himalayan Siamese. This cat had his fare share of nine lives. I just had him to the vet last year for a failed kidney, spent loads of money getting him better, and a damn car came along and killed him instantly. I suppose he did not suffer though.
Also, I would like to mention that the men that killed him, did have the guts to come and tell us.( at 6:00am this morning) A lot of people wouldn?t do that so, this is one thing I thanked him for. He did feel awful and had more tears then I did when I picked him up and wrapped him in his bedding.
I called the vet to find out how much it would be for a cremation and they want $160.00 bucks!! Needless to say, Stitch is going to be nestled in our backyard under his favorite tree .......Can you believe they have a nerve to charge that much when he is no longer alive!!! I promptly told the girl, "I don?t need x-rays for god sakes" she then told me, "because they only do cremations on Mondays, they would have a "fee" for holding him". I then said, "well, you wont have to check on him or feed him, that is ridiculous"!!!!!!!
What a crappy day!!!! I am so pissed and angry over the vet thing....You would think after spending, thousands of dollars on my animals there, they would cut me break!!
R.I.P. Stitch... we will miss you..
