I have a cat that adopted us, semi wild, outdoor living cat. Who appears to be rather sick. Sneezing and coughing a bit and sounding awfully croaky the last 3 days.
problem number 1: She doesn't do indoors, or being picked up or captured. Even if it is for her own good.
problem number 2: I am a skint student
problem number 3: My Mum is in hospital, and is really far too unwell for me to be bothering her with this, so can't help out on the finances, or suggestions of what to do.
Does anyone know of a good vet in the Fife area, who'd even do some kind of payment plan? I could spread the cost of whatever she might need sorted on a weekly or monthly basis. I just think my bank manager will have a fit if I try and pay vets bills up front. Oh, they also need to be able to come to me, or give me extra strong sedatives so I can drug her and put her in a cat carrier. Or even a vet that wouldn't mind me calling them up to ask. Maybe she just has a cat cold, and maybe that's no big deal, but none of my other cats have ever had this, and it seems strange that she has human cold sypmtoms in a warmer season.
If not a vet, if anyone knows of a charity, or cat shelter, or something/someone that might also be able to help. Hell, if have a book on looking after cats and want to read me a paragraph that'd certainly be a help.
Apologies for the garbled nature of this message. Not much sleep has been had here, can you tell? :)
Many thanks in advance.
