well. It was at a different vet, although it was recommended by our
vet. I had never gone through this before, I didn't feel the vet had
good people skills although he seemed fine with Tiger, and I made
assumptions based on what I was familiar with. Needless to say, I had
visted Tiger to bring her home on Saturday morning, it didn't go well
so I left her there (again), and had no idea that they performed such
surgeries with no 24 hour care. I got a call at 11am Sunday to say
she hadn't made the night and was furious that no one checked in for
such a long period of time. Lesson learned. :(
You remind me that I really need to place phone numbers & directions
to both emergency vets by the phones. We do have a vet close by that
I tried to go to when a neighborhood cat was hit by a car, but they
closed at 6 and I couldn't get a cell signal in their parking lot.
It's so hard when you're in panic mode to figure out the right thing to do!

- That may have been Catherine (in Australia) who has a Mom and 4 (?) kittens
with heart problems. She posted here a little while ago.

- See? I was going to say Cathy but it was just too weird for both to
have the same name. :)
