In 2003, when Bush was president, I took a male cat to be fixed. It cost $40, pain meds were free.

Today, I took a female cat to be fixed. For the exact same procedures, it cost $80, plus $13 for pain meds.

Thank you, Mr President.

Ok, maybe this because English isn't my first language ("thank you, Captain Obvious!") but I thought only things can be fixed while a cat a is living, breathing organism, therefor can either be healed or treated, but not fixed like a car, a pen or a computer. So, did I learn something wrong or does Act own android cats?

"Thank you, Mr President." Take Economics 101 and stop bothering the rest of humanity.

@UHM —

In American slang, "fixed" in this context refers to having a pet spayed or neutered so it can't reproduce.

Yeah! Stupid Obama giving people female cats! What was he thinking?

10/9/2012 6:23:59 AM


Err, I don't think Obamacare has anything to do with pets.

But nevermind, I don't want to ruin your fun...

I find it amusing how when the topic of homosexuality comes up, these people screech "man has a penis and woman has a vagina! That means they're meant for each other!" and yet this person can't even conceive of the idea that maybe neutering male and female cats do not require "the exact same procedures".

You are really reaching there. You have nothing else to bitch about & you're not smart enough to make up something truly ridiculous so you complain about spaying procedures. That is truly hitting the bottom of the stupid barrel.

Bush was President for five years after that. You don't think he maybe had more opportunity to affect things after 2003? But nooooo, post hoc ergo propter hoc.

I screwed you all but thanks for blaming the black guy!

Give this guy (or girl) a lesson on biology. Getting a male cat fixed and getting a female cat fixed are NOT the exact same procedure.

What the fuck. This also lends itself to copycatting:

"In 2003, when Bush was president, I stayed in a motel 6. It cost $60, continental breakfast was free.

Today, for the exact same length of time, I took a vacation at the Waldorf-Astoria, and it cost $1,060, plus $35 for the quiche.

Thank you, Mr President."

"In 2003, when Bush was president, I bought a used Cessna 172. It cost $120,000, the wheels were free.

Today, I purchased a brand new Aeroscraft ML866 hybrid luxury yacht Zeppelin. For the exact same aircraft, it cost $40 million, plus $40,000 for all the furniture and paintings.

Thank you, Mr President."

"In 2003, when Bush was president, I picked up a streetwalker in Trenton, New Jersey. It cost $40, and the handy was free.

Today, I hired an escort service. For the exact same procedures, it cost $80, plus $13 for a handy.

Thank you, Mr President."

um, sterilizing a male and a female are different procedures because one has testicles and the other does not.

This boys and girls is why you should pay attention in biology.

...on the other hand, here in the UK, there's the veterinary charity, the PDSA: People's Dispensary for Sick Animals.

Where those who can't afford vets bills can take their pets for treatment; usually, said person then makes a donation, as much as they can afford.

The PDSA actively encourages the neutering of cats.

Thank you, PDSA. And thank you, Prime Ministers, past & present, for the National Health Service.

"You are really reaching there"

In which case, everyone on Ruptured Retards (thus as a result, they're all Ruptured!) must be really ripped, physiologically. Because due to all their 'reaching', they make Shaun T's 'Insanity Workout' look like Pilates for the over-60s

Acts 5:41 states: "And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.".

It's more complicated to spay a female cat than neuter a male cat, which is probably why it cost so much more. Plus, he never said if he took the cats to the same place, which could also account for the change in cost.

During the Clinton administration, gasoline cost about $1 per gallon. By the end of Bush's second term, the price was well over $4 a gallon. Thank you, Mr. Bush.

See? I can play this game, too. *smirk* Of course, Bush's administration actually did have something to do with the rising gas price, in more ways than one. What does Obama's administration have to do with the price of veterinary services? Sweet fuck-all, I'm guessing.

These people can't even stub their toes on a rock without claiming that Obama must've put it there.

When are you getting "fixed"?

10/9/2012 9:18:00 AM


Well if it's any consolation. the rest of the ruptured folks called her out on her stoopidity.

10/9/2012 9:29:17 AM


And what else do you think should cost the same today as it did almost ten years ago? Especially considering Obama has only been president for the last 4 of those years.

10/9/2012 9:44:17 AM


@ Jezebel's Evil Sister: Thank you. Now it makes sense that it's much cheaper for male cats. Still sounds like Data built himself a cat, but ok.

10/9/2012 9:59:31 AM

Thinking Allowed

A few things Acts 5:31 is missing here.

1. There is a 9 year difference
2. Females are more expensive to fix than males
3. Obama has nothing to do with your pet care.

Man you guys are idiots. Obama OBVIOUSLY has a naziliberaljewathesitmuslim agenda here. What's next? It costing more for my car?? Ermahgerd Obama whhhyyyy??

I was gonna say what everyone else said about differences in kitty sexual anatomy & how it affects "cat fixing" costs.

Since they made their piece, all I'll add is...'Acts 5:41' is an idiot.

Thank you.

Neutering a male cat and spaying a female cat is not the exact same procedure. They are completely different procedures and in fact the female procedure is far more complicated because you have to preform invasive surgery. Neutering just involves cutting off the circulation to the testicles until they fall off.

"Today, I took a female cat to be fixed. For the exact same procedures, it cost $80, plus $13 for pain meds."

your female cat had testicules?

unrelated, but how old were you when you first sucked your girlfriend's dick?
