By the way, I don't think the vets should charge you more for the second surgery since it was their fault they missed a bunch of stuff they should have gotten the first time. If a car mechanic does something like that, he doesn't charge for fixing his own error, and doctors probably wouldnt either because they would be afraid of lawsuits. Hopefully you can work out a reduced rate with your vets when this is all over with to cover the entire episode rather than breaking it down one little thing at a time like the initial bill shows. There IS a discussion thread on here somewhere about vets changing to a "pay up front" policy when they used to allow you to run a tab especially when there's an emergency, and it's your regular vet. Mine does, fortunately. I always owe him money and pay him every month. Most rescues are like that. Our balance due is NEVER zero! When all this is over, you might consider writing an article about what happens when cats get into string and thread, because even though we do have articles about how to kitten proof your home, people may not think to read them until AFTER the cat gets into something. Keep us posted on his progress!
