Shit Days
« on: April 19, 2008, 02:17:31 PM »

Woke up this morning knowing I had to do yard work to keep the assholes in the home owner's association off my ass. Work like hell all morning, doing combat with a bougainvillea that managed to shred up my arms in the process. After finishing up I come inside and start to rest, just in time for my cat to wake up and literally scream at me in agony. I take him to the vet (which cost a cab ride both ways), and find out that he has a blockage in his urethra and build up in his bladder that will cost upwards of $1300 to fix. Now, I don't have $1300 for myself, so now I have to have my cat, who's barely an adult, put down because I can't afford to treat him. I miss my cat, and I'm sore as hell.

Sympathy.

This week after dropping a college class I came home to find out my mom had nearly been killed in a car accident.

I feel your misery.

That was a purely No-Win scenario. You made the right decision.

Meanwhile, a friend of the family was shot down and killed this week. Shit Days is apt.

Yeah, I knew the decision was correct. As much as I love my cat, I'm just not in the position to support one that is that sick, but it doesn't make me feel too much better.

It's a shitty, shitty situation... I had the exact same problem with one of my cats a few years back (and my brother's cat had it last year).  I was lucky enough to be in a situation to handle it, despite it costing all the money I had.  A similar situation right now and I'd lose the pet.  Which is the hardest thing in the world to me.

If you get a new cat, female cats have considerably fewer problems because their insides are snaky like a boycat's.  If you do get a boycat, there are special cat foods (which are, granted, considerably more expensive) that prevent urethral blockage and crystallization.  I feel your pain; losing a loved one is never easy.  :(

I still have my one cat left, and I think I'll just stick with him for awhile. He's fairly young too, so barring another emergency I hope to not need another cat for a good ten years.

If one believes in Karma effecting you in this world, it begs the question: What did you do?
And/Or if you believe in God, it's proof that he hates you.
Sorry, man.

Alf is funny.

I've been told my Alf impression is spot-on. I can't believe I'm posting that.

My birthday is coming up. By virtue or merely mentioning this fact in this thread more or less tells you how I feel on the matter. I'll dispense from the obvious reasons: I'm turning 23 and I haven't accomplished shit, boo-hoo-hoo and so forth. The main reason why I'm dreading this day is because I'm pretty sure my dad is going to die on it.

Yeah, see, he's a drinker. Heavy drinker. So heavy, in fact, that his liver has stopped working 3 times already -- two of those times during my 21st and 22nd birthdays, respectively. And it's already looking like it'll happen a forth time pretty soon. It might not happen, of course... nevertheless, I'm not getting my hopes up.

Bonus points: My older brother has the same birthday as me. God's kind of an asshole that way.
