Computer highjacked and cat's at the vet

This morning I had the fun task of watching the computer technician try and remove all the crap from my computer.  Even ad-aware couldn't catch it all and it would crash every time he tried to run it.  Over two hours later, he finally has it cleaned up.  Of course then I got the lecture, be careful where you go on the net, blah, blah, blah.  Yeah, I know.

Sunday, when my cat didn't wake me up at 6 am for his morning feeding, I started growing concerned.  He'd been vomiting and I thought it was a reaction to the shots he got at his checkup Friday (another story in itself).  When I realized Sunday he couldn't walk and he couldn't pee, I rushed him to the emergency clinic.  He had to have a catheter inserted and the next morning and $620 later, we take him to our regular vet.  This morning he's having his urethra removed.  Hopefully he'll be home tonight or tomorrow night, poor little guy. 

I feel guilty because he's really been an annoyance since having kids.  I really thought I didn't care about him.  But when the thought that he wouldn't make it crossed my mind, I realized I still hold him dear in my heart.  And completely broke down.  At the clinic, in the car, at home, at work.  He's going to be okay.  He has to.

I hope your kitty will be ok. I really lose it when my cat gets sick. I feel so helpless. Sending "get better" thoughts your way.

Oh man. I can't tell you how much I love cats. And how sad I get when I hear a cat is sick. I've been in this situation and I hope your cat gets better.

Why isn't anybody concerned about the computer?

Computer's fine. Cat is finally home from the vet. We're still keeping a close eye on him, but he's going to be fine!

And the total bill only came to $1290. Ouch.

For that kind of money, you could get a robotic cat.
