Quote# 89982

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.

@Felix Wilde
The problem is in the way they look at it. I got my cat fixed, now I'm getting this cat fixed. It's the same thing right? No, you got one cat neutered and the other cat spayed, those are different things, that's why we have different names for them.

The rest is just looking for someone to blame.

And this is Obama's fault how exactly?

It's Obama's fault that boy and girl cats don't have the same reproductive organs? That's a new one.

(P.S. I think you need to get laid. Your knowledge of anatomy seems a little shaky.)

Well, thank you for being responsible and getting your cats fixed, anyway. Now go buy an anatomy book.

Obviously Bush is responsible for the glorious and proud penis, whereas Obama created the shameful and sinful vagina, which then had to be hidden away inside the body, making the procedure more expensive

I stubbed my toe and had to sit down and wait for the swelling to stop. Thanks, Obamacare.

I was watching TV and I fell off the couch while reaching for some popcorn. Thanks, Obamacare.

The inmates from Rapture Ready have been let loose on the streets. Thanks, Obamacare.

Uh, it costs way more for a female cat to be spayed than it does for a male cat to be neutere, genius. You know, the whole invasive abdominal surgery as opposed to minor scrotal incision that doesn't even need stitches in most cases?

"In the thread Acts 5:41 wrote:
The clinic USED to have a flat rate for spay or neuter. They used to care if someone was low income.
That same clinic basically told Ron to give the cat to the pound, to be put down, if he couldn't afford the $300+ they wanted to charge.

Sounds to me like the vets went from being bleeding-heart liberals to hard-nosed market-forces Neo-Cons. I'd have thought you'd have liked that..."

Oh, Capitalism is fine & dandy, until it directly affects them.

How many of your kind are on welfare, (Sad)Acts 5:41, especially post-Dumbya-created recession (which was pre-Obama; you don't have the right to blame him for anything, RR)? And how many of your kind are having to rely on Obamacare, pray tell...?

We in the UK have the NHS. Since 1948. Nope, no complaints here. Nor for the PDSA, neither. How many poor fundie Teabagger types have - at best - handed over their pets to sanctuaries, because they could no longer afford the vets bills? If that's the best your so-called 'Capitalism' can do for you, then no wonder in recent years those T-shirts/posters of Karl Marx, with the slogan 'I warned you that this would happen' have been big sellers?

"If your vet fixes female cats the exact same way they fix males, they shouldn't be anywhere near animals."

The character in the BBC black comedy TV series "The League of Gentlemen", Mr. Chinnery springs to mind...! XP X3

Alles klar...?! [/Herr Lipp]

Because a castration (neuter) is exactly the same thing as an ovariohysterectomy (spay) and the latter of the two procedures is totally no more invasive or painful than the former. Your logic blew apart before cost even entered the equation.

Pain meds were free? Surely that's some sort of communism? You certainly don't like the idea of free medication for humans, so why is it OK for your kitty?

I call Poe, no one who's had two cats fixed can be so stupid about this,

Spaying costs more than neutering no matter who the president is. It's a more complicated operation.

If you had had the female cat first, you'd think the economy had improved.

That's stupid. You're stupid. Stop being stupid.

In other news, scientists have found that male and female animals aren't physically identical, and have different requirements with regards to sterilization and surgery.

Having your female spayed is a much more involved procedure than having your male castrated, because it requires abdominal surgery. Ergo, it will cost more.

"For the exact same procedures..."

Oh really? I wasn't aware that a female's ovaries dangle outside the body cavity and are encased in only a sack of skin.

It's hilarious how stupid you are.

Boy, this guy is REALLY digging deep to try and find some positive shred done by Bush!
And still, he fails.

The last time I had a female cat spayed (around 1982) it cost $75. I recently adopted 2 boys and they cost $40 each.

I want to know - which president can I blame all this shit on?

Please do the world a favor and bring YOURSELF to a vet to have the "exact same procedure" done on you. It would improve the human race in the long run.

@Feral Dog: In the Florida panhandle. That's actually about the normal price here at a regular vet, but that's just the procedure alone. If you add in the overnight stay, checkup, mandatory vaccinations, pain meds, etc. it's more like $400.

It cost more for the female cat because her body was trying to shut down the legitimate spaying.

10/12/2012 2:06:01 PM

Well, it's hardly the exact same procedure......

Biology, learn it and maybe we won't be so tempted to insult you.
