Princess' Ear

Princess' ear has another hematoma. She had surgery just a few months ago. It cost quite a bit, and I questioned at the time because part of the ear was left pristine. Well, it ballooned up last night.

I'm really not sure anymore. I go to the vet, see a tech in the exam room - I never even see the vet anymore! Are there vets running the business? Are there vets doing the surgery? I wonder. All you ever see around here is the techs.

And the price/cost has more than doubled! Must be from paying all the help. But if this is the quality of work, I'll have to find a new vet. I'm supposed to be going to the best in the area, but she hired some new vets - or brought them into the practice however she did it - and the quality went way down while the price went way up. Not a good bargain in my mind.

And quality - well, if you have to bring the cat back for the same thing when you questioned it at the time - well that says it all, don't you think?

So, Fountain City Animal Hospital in Halls, TN is no longer the place to go. Find someplace else.

Reaction to person who commented - there is no excuse for rudeness, discourtesy or uncivil conduct. If you go to a professional office, you expect to see a professional. Vets routinely charge more and more for the same thing they did a while back - while some of that is just inflation, some sounds to me like they are gouging the clients. A courtesy face-to-face is always expected at their office. Any staff member who has access to charts should not necessarily be allowed to make comments in them. When I got Princess' records, AFTER the notes from surgery, at the bottom of the page, the office girl made her comments. Shouldn't those kind of comments be made BEFORE surgery???? No, because I had trouble with the $$ amount of the billing, she made snide remarks in the chart. The amount of the bill cost twice my rent. That's too much.

Cats (& Dogs) and Fleas

I've pull the site this post referred to. All the information can now be found on

Babies Won!

My babies won! I saw a thread in one of my favorite forums running a kitty contest. I posted the photos of the kids. They won! Cat litter!

Hey - yeah, that's right...
I haven't posted it here - there is a new kind of cat litter on the market. It changes color if the cat has a UTI. I'm recommending it for any cat that has had 2 UTIs in the past 12 months. If you want to try it anyway, go ahead, but that's my recommendation right now. I'll be getting some of it and I'll have more to say about it

Update Oct 21 2009 - I never received the cat litter and the product was pulled from the market.
