Cruel Hearted Greedy People

My animals are like family to me, not just a pet.
 My cat is in labor, and she's having issues, so all I can do is fret.

The emergency Vet wants four hundred and fifty dollars!
 I don't have it, so she's denied and all I can do is holler. 

So what am I supposed to let her sit here and die?
 It makes me want to go stab that jerk in his eye!

You should be a Vet because you love animals, not money.
 What's a cat's life to them? I don't think its a damn bit funny.

I mean the economy is low and I'm not asking to do it for free.
 Just to let me make payments, how hard can that really be?

Cruel-hearted, greedy people that are ruthless and hollow.
 You can bet karma will most definitely linger and follow.

Some people just don't understand, she isn't a cat, she's my baby.
 There is a chance she will live, and I hate living on the whim of a "maybe".

What choice do I have? I'll take her to her normal vet tomorrow morning.
 If my "daughter' dies, that emergency Vet will need some serious warning.

She's a beautiful feline, with soft fur, half white. half black and stunning.
 With God's luck, she'll finish labor and her children will be coming!

    I have an abiding trust for animal lovers, they are inclined to be lest egocentric, and to understand that global ecology is a fragile organism like ourselves. Take care of the pets. Peace and love

    aww how sad, I agree they should agree to pay in installments, or at least let you have pet insurance or something, some people are heartless, I pray the normal vet helps that baby of yours. God bless from diane.

    My heart goes out to you on this write. The nerve of these that are trained and say they care yet do not seem to feel at all without the lining of their palms. I do hope that all goes well, peace, love and light be with you and yours. Great writing. Smiles from Lolita
