If you have sex with a prostitute against her will, is it considered rape or shoplifting?

our cat, Luci was just diagnosed with feline hepatic lipidosis. also known as fatty liver disease. she requires a feeding tube, an ultrasound and a liver biopsy. all this will total to over $1000. im currently taking art commissions and such to help pay for the cost of her care.

details here: harli_raver's Journal -- Fur Affinity [dot] net


(i do hope this is okay to put here.)

Luci's story:

(initial symptoms: weight loss, refusal to eat anything, lethargy. normal drinking habits.)

after the first vet visit to our "regular" vet...

Luci is jaundiced, they suspect fatty liver disease but they have no clue what caused it. shes home now and i am to give her subcutaneous fluids twice a day starting tomorrow as well as oral antibiotics (Clavamox) twice a day starting tomorrow. we also have to force feed her some very fatty Science Diet canned food...one can a day starting tomorrow.

her blood work showed very very elevated levels for her liver, she came back negative for FeLV (feline leukemia), thank gods.

she had blood and urine samples taken and she received 200 cc's of subcutaneous fluids and 2 injections of antibiotics into that fluid pocket as well as another injection into her leg muscle.

the vet asked if there was any way that she could have gotten into some tylenol or something and i said no. we dont even HAVE tylenol and all medicine is kept in cat-free rooms. theres literally NOTHING she could have gotten into.

the vet said she has a 25% chance of making it.
(that was 2 days ago.)

yesterday:

last night we both stayed up really late, discussing Luci and her treatment options and figuring out how we could manage to afford it. we figured a feeding tube would be $300 or so but our regular vet recommended an ultrasound for an additional $300 as well as a liver biopsy for roughly an additional $500-600. how on earth could we manage that?? we have 3 other kitties, a rat and a cockatiel to care for as well. its easy enough to put it on the credit card but holy crap....theres no way we could pay it off. we just dont have the money to do so! rent alone is $1400 a month. X.x

finally, at about 5 am we both went to bed. too tired to think anymore really. physically and emotionally drained. Luci had lost even more weight in the last 24 hours and you could feel her spine and hips. i slept 3 hours before waking up and calling our regular vet again and asking for a feeding tube. she basically gave me the run around saying that without an ultrasound and biopsy, as well as a blood clotting test, she could not give Luci a feeding tube.

this pissed me off to no end because we could save up for the ultrasound and biopsy if we really need to but Luci is wasting away in front of our eyes! Nutrical isnt doing much and she refuses to take food, even when force fed! a feeding tube is really the only way to get food into her and this woman was refusing!

finally, i got rude with her. ive had enough. i told her to refer me to a specialist who WILL put in a feeding tube because im not playing her little "pay me right now for everything or i wont do anything and your cat will die" game. FUCK THAT. (i should mention that she actually does not accept care credit and they refuse to let you make payments. all money is due up front...shitty.)

so finally she gave me the phone number for a vet in Walnut Creek (a 45 minute drive). i called immediately, explained the situation and they set us up with an appointment for 10:30. it was just after 9 am. we got dressed, packed up Luci in her carrier and left for the vets office.

it was a bit of a wait to talk to the doctor but she was incredibly kind and sympathetic and actually worked with us when we told her how special Luci is to us and explained our money situation. she said that it could be a type of feline hepatitis or it could be the fatty liver issue but only an ultrasound could determine that. she said that in an ultrasound the liver will look very very bright if its the fatty liver issue but if its the hepatitis, the liver will look darker. we explained that we couldnt afford the ultrasound until a later date and really just wanted the feeding tube so that Luci could get some food and hopefully stay alive.

then the vet did something that took us both completely by surprise. SHE GAVE LUCI AN ULTRASOUND COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE. HOLY SHIT. this woman is amazing. beyond amazing.

we discussed it a bit and she gave us a price quote. an esophageal (did i spell that right?) feeding tube, along with full anesthesia, blood pressure monitor, catheter, etc etc etc etc etc (seriously, all the necessary bells and whistles) as well as some anti-nausea meds and other items for our use in tube feeding her at home...came to about $900 (not counting the $200 we spent at our regular vet yesterday for nothing more than blood work really).

long story short, the vet says that Luci's ultrasound showed no signs of cancer and her pancreas looks like its not the problem. provided that Luci improves with some feedings of a nearly liquid diet, she should make a complete recovery!

weekly visits to our regular vet to monitor her weight, change her bandages and clean the incision around her feeding tube will still be required.

but as long as she keeps fighting, shes got a damn good chance!!

yesterday (but later...like...last night):

i hooked her up to her IV bag and gave her the subcutaneous fluids that the vet suggested and i shit you not, she perked right up and began batting a paw at the tubing from the IV bag. LOL!

first thing in the morning shes due for a small dose of anti-nausea medicine thru the feeding tube, followed by her first meal and a flush of water to clear the tube. the goal tomorrow is 1/4 of a can of A/D mixed with water, to be served in very small doses, very slowly. 5 tiny meals for her first day. i hope she does well. the vets main concern is that she may get nauseous and vomit and its possible that she may vomit the tube out, which would be bad because we cant really afford to replace it. we are keeping our fingers crossed that it doesnt happen.

this morning:

Luci laid in her bed all night purring like a jet engine. i swear, she was SO LOUD. i just woke up a bit ago. i had Psyko hold her still while i put her anti-nausea medicine thru the tube. once that was in, i flushed the tube with 5 ccs of water, placed the cap back on the tube, scritched her head and cleaned the syringes.

i have to wait one hour for the nausea medicine to start working and then i can feed her. so far so good! she didnt vomit when i gave her the medicine and water so ill keep a close eye on her!

EDIT: i just went to check on Luci and she looked at me, sat right up in her bed and began kneading the bed with her front paws. and not that "im sick so im kneading slowly, i feel yucky" kind of kneading. fast, vigorous "i feel good" kneading! 10 more minutes and then i can feed her!

i dunno about making it our regular vet. they are technically an emergency vet clinic. and a bit too far to drive to on a regular basis.

heres a pic of her today after a few feedings and some meds.
