Patches is doing ok. Not too thrilled about being in my bathroom but I think she should stay there until I can pull the tube thing out of her.

So I rented a trap and I am going to trap this bastard feral cat and try to go get him fixed. Wish me luck.

$414? Are the vets out there more expensive or are they taking you for a ride because they know how much you love cats? I've taken lots of cats with abcesses to vets, all they do is lance them and squeeze it out and give you antibiotics. It's never more than about $75, and one cat had one on his back so huge it stood up like a camel's hump and wiggled from side to side when he walked. But anyway I hope she's doing better.

They're more expensive out there, I'd guess. Even here in Michigan, the vets in the rich suburbs will charge about $300 for a dental that I get for $72 from the rural farm hospital I use (includes anesthesia, blood work, deep cleaning, minor extractions, and a day of care). They're really no better (most of them went to MSU, same vet school), but people will pay more in those parts of Michigan.

Cat too scary for Canadian mail carriers
POSTED: 1:42 p.m. EDT, May 4, 2007

Story Highlights
• "Apparently this is a very threatening cat," Canada Post says
• Owner says cat declawed and docile
• Cat owner has to pick up mail at post office

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) -- Canada's postal system has stopped delivering mail to a home in Winnipeg, Manitoba, after a mail carrier was scared away by a "very threatening cat," the Winnipeg Free Press said Friday.

A Canada Post spokeswoman said the agency was concerned about the safety of its carriers, although it hoped for an amicable solution to its dispute with cat-owner John Samborski.

"The letter carrier who delivers mail there ... was brought up on a farm, she is very comfortable with animals," spokeswoman Kathi Neal told the newspaper. "Apparently this is a very threatening cat."

Samborski told the paper that his 8-year-old, declawed, black cat Shadow is docile, and it was "ridiculous" for Canada Post to make him to pick up his mail from a post office instead of delivering it to his door.

Shadow "likes to eat and sleep and cuddle. You could drop a bomb and he'd just open one eye, take a look, then close them and go back to sleep," Samborski, 41, told the newspaper.

No they're not taking me for a ride.

1. I'm in California

2. I took her to an emergency vet because she is feral and I didnt know how she would react at a normal vet.

3. She had to be put under to drain the one under her arm because it was so bad and it was in an awkward spot.

It wasnt a simple pop and drain, and be on your way.

But yes, they are very expensive.

She's doing fine. I'm just waiting until tomorrow morning to take her little drain thing out and she can be on her way. I have to give her antibiotics for 7 days which I am hoping wont be a problem because she is rarely NOT on my patio on a daily basis.

Trapped the wrong cat last nite, one I had already trapped & spayed before so I will try again Sunday night.

I hope you succeed in trapping the right cat! There are a few ferals around our apartment complex (found them by accident one night when we thought Beckham had escaped into the woods). One looks exactly like Posh, we joke that it's probably her mother. They usually start running before I even notice they are near. I wish I could get closer to see if they are healthy, but I don't want to scare them into running blindly since we live on the busiest street in the state.

Beckham was looking cute today:
