The Price of a Cat's Meow? £10,000!

When Jean Kelly's cat Cadbury stopped meowing, the vet diagnozed a paralysed larynx which was blocking its throat. So what did the pet lover do?

After a stint in intensive care, six days in an oxygen tent, four months nursing care and regular check-ups, the 13-year-old Moggy had run up a bill of £10,000. [...]

Cadbury is back at home and on the road to recovery in Olney, Buckinghamshire - sitting in his favourite spot in the conservatory and miaowing in delight. “It was never about me – it was about Cadbury and his quality of life. I know he’s not a young cat but I wanted to give him a fighting chance,” she told a Sunday newspaper.

@Tempscire, as a matter of fact I run the largest soup kitchen in the state of Maine. I put my money, and more importantly my time, where my mouth is every day of the year.

Thirteen isn't old for a cat - ours is 20 and apart from getting a bit stiff in cold weather and only leaving the house under hydraulic pressure she seems as contented as ever.

HOWEVER - if anything beyond trivial occurs she's for the chop.
