      We spent half of today at the Emergency Vet with our cat Butters! He almost died, and he's still pretty sick! (Goodness help me, I don't know what I'd do if he died... Especially from something like that. He's a big part of me, of my heart.) He's having to be spoon fed, every hour on the hour, and we have to make him drink. These companies refuse to have a conscience about what they are doing, they need to be held accountable! How can someone have such a lack of compassion for a fellow sentient being!? I knew we should have waited to take him to the vet to get something proper for fleas, but I ended up caving in to pressure to "do it NOW" and "OMG, but we'll save money this way!" Yea, do they feel like we saved money now that I had to get a $400 advance to pay his vet bill? Seriously people, just take your cats/dogs/etc to the vet to get the CORRECT flea treatment. It will save you heartache, and it actually saves you money. We've been crying off and on, apologizing over and over to this cat who can't understand our apologies, and taking turns to make sure he's hydrated and fed. These products are POISON, and they shouldn't be allowed on shelves. A massive boycott needs to happen.
