A very expensive start!

First day of the school holidays and I do hope a pattern has not been set today because I won’t be able to afford it. Mollie went to the vet to be spayed and microchipped. She is now back home, bit wobbly on her feet, but had a drink of water and now sleeping on the carpet. She is definitely not feeling the best. Bella is keeping a very close eye on her. It was quite funny how Bella reacted after I took Mollie to the vet – she walked through the house, meowing loudly, looking for Mollie. She simply couldn’t relax long enough to sleep. Luckily the carpet layer distracted her.

But yes, I knew the vet bill was going to be a lot but didn’t really expect a bill of $270.29!!!!!! That is a lot of money and I know she had to be spayed and she had to be microchipped, although she is an indoor cat, but $270????? Not very affordable if the expectation is that all cats should be spayed and have a microchip


When Mollie came here as a little kitten she was not toilet-trained as promised by the previous owner and she quickly claimed a spot behind the television to use. Luckily only there and no where else in the house. I found a very good product and it actually got rid of the smell – used to pour it over the carpet and watch it foam as it reacted with the pee. And although Mollie is now quite good, she still tends to go to her safe spot whenever Bella used her litter tray. I decided to ask the carpet layer to replace that part of the carpet and put the coffee table in the corner so that Mollie cannot use it again

He ripped up the carpet in the corner and replace the wooden strips with the nails as well, to make sure we get all the smell and spots out. I then liberally sprayed some Odarid all over the spot, before he replaced the carpet. This product is absolutely amazing and the carpet layer was going to buy a big bottle for future similar  jobs. He was very impressed. Luckily I still had some carpet which I kept after replacing the carpet throughout the house. What a great job he did – you cannot even see where he joined the new and old carpet. It looks pretty good to me. But……..$180!

So yes, it was an expensive day. I will be counting the pennies for the rest of the week 🙂
