saints new name..... Suckers for Punishment (S.F.P.)

little poverty stricken white cat with the broken jaw is already a bit of a headache...i was on the phone with emergency and nicole til after 10 pm working out payment (cash or credit card up front before all treatments)....geez it is a good thing we had the fundraiser or that cat would be toast already. anyway, nicole has to drive out and meet me at work in maple ridge to give me the fundraiser money so i can deposit it into the saints account and get a certified cheque. then nicole has to run the cheque back to the clinic in vancouver and pay the bill so he can have his surgery cuz i am not letting anyone put this on their personal credit card. with nicole working there i am sure we are going to hear of others in dire need occasionally, i want the clinic to get used to taking cheques from us and trusting that we pay our own bills. that is how you build relationships with wary, previously burned clinics so when push comes to shove and trust is needed somewhere down the road, we have a solid base of past positive interactions to maybe help in a crises. anyway...that is my plan.
mr. broken jaw will be coming home with an esophageal feeding tube and will require feeding and flushing around the clock every 4-6 hours for the next month or so (there goes my nap!) nicole said she would come out more often (she is feeling guilty for saving his life, which is stupid cuz if i was there, i'd have done the same thing and so would everyone else) but i think realistically, it is better to train the staff and eva if they are willing cuz they are closer if i can't get home on some lunch break one day.
sheila posted a pic of quinn (the unsocialized, catatonic aussie pup) below, but now it is gone. how is your little fundraiser prize doing you guys? ( i didn't get an update last night cuz Idol was starting so i cut sheila off.... it was a GREAT show...except the freaking phone kept on ringing.)
enquiring minds want to know.
not only was that fundraiser a lot of fun but it has directly had a very real positive impact on 2 animals that none of us knew... plus it will clear our existing vet bills, not bad you guys, good job and well done. both of these animals and all our existing ones, thank everyone who came out and made it such a success in ways that none of us even thought of!
