There are also caravans that drive around and provide low cost bet care, but you have to be enrolled in some sort of low income government aid program to prove you are actually low income

I'm not low income so that would never work! I was just thinking more along the lines of not wanting to pay a $2000.00 bill to the vet. It's been such a long since I have had pets!

I appreciate the suggestions from all of you!

Thank you for the heads up Sir LOB. Those are important things to consider.

However, your experience is regional. It's not going to be exactly the same everywhere.

I'm new here

I just joined the site today and immediatly wanted to read the stray kitty thread. With all of your caring responses to Merlot's beautiful boy, and with Merlot's taking him in to begin with, I know I'm in the right place.

Welcome to DC, Cheffor2! As you've noticed, not only do we love food, we also love our animals. Both the 4 and the 2 legged.

We had the coolest stray cat years ago, he followed us around better than any dog. His tail was twice his body size. Gave him to a friend whose cat had just died, but he could not adjust to the good indoor life. She ended up having to give him up as he was a wanderer and she kept getting fined for his insistant roaming.

Good thoughts about clinics, shelters and vets. I have always had cats..some shelters in the areas in which I lived were really good at finding homes for the cats..others weren't. Some vets I have been to have offered multiple cat discounts (I have been to known to have 4 or 5 at a time), some didn't. I definitely think it's regional.
I'm sorry that beautiful boy attacked both you and your son. Do you suppose that was his idea of play? Mine will go after anything that moves.
