VET ASAP... There is a credit card you can get.. It is called care credit.. I got it for my cat and they took him very quick...

I work at a Humane Society and we offer Emergency Loans just for situations like this, but I agree with the other comments, that your plea seems a little suspicious. I wanted to post my answer in case anyone that really needs help would see this. Contact your local shelter or Humane Society and they may have loans for emergency situations! Otherwise if you can't afford it and there aren't any available loans. Then for your pet's sake, you should surrender the animal so they can seek medical attention.

Take you cat to the vet immediatley. it sounds like a seizure or something. Don't worry about the bill. You will find a way to pay it. Don't let you cat suffer any longer!!!

Your cat needs help imediately. It could be feline urologic syndrome--which if not treated, can be fatal in a matter of hours. Don't delay.....I hope all turns out well. You need to get your cat to a doctor. Let us know that your cat is alright.

Well I reviewed your page and noticed that you are from Killeen. Well I'm in the Army living in Killeen and I would hope that you arent making this up. If you are in the Army or are an Army spouse you can take your cat to the Vet on post. It is a good place to go and is also inexpensive. If you are making this up than you are a cruel person and this is by no means funny! There are several Vets in Killeen that will work with you on a payment plan. If you cant afford an animal like the people before me said you should not have one.

Your cat had a seizure, there s no easy fix you need a Vet ASAP, I hate when I hear no money for a Vet, you need a Vet and the money to pay of you have a pet, they are living creatures that get sick and should go to the Vet at least 1x a year to make sure they get & stay healthy

I agree with all of the answers that you have received, but they all failed to mentioned one thing. If you can't afford a vet, then why in the world do you even have a cat. Hopefully you have brought it to the vet by now and worked something out regarding the payment. If not, bring it to the vet and surrender it. They will treat it, but it will no longer be your.

With your cat's name being little f*%^@r I doubt that this is a real situation. I hope it isn't for the cat's sake. Then it's only time on both parts that have been wasted and not a cat's life.

There really is no way for any of us to diagnose what is going on with your cat; first we aren't qualified and second you can't do it over the internet. You really must take your cat to the vet. As you said in your note, it's an emergency so the first thing to do is to get her care. I'm sure the vet will work with you on the cost. I hope by the time you read this you have already made the trip to the vet.

If it is an emergency, that animal needs to go to the vet IMMEDIATELY!!! Why are you asking questions on the internet?! Money or not, that animal may be suffering and NEEDS immediate medical attention! Most vets are more than willing to work with you in situations like this, so please don't deny your animal medical attention!!!!!!!

You really answered your own question when you wrote "EMERGENCY!!!" In such a case--when you KNOW something is an emergency--YOU need to take appropriate and immediate action on behalf of your cat (and that does NOT entail seeking help here where no one has the ability to render emergency treatment to your cat and where you don't even know in advance how long it might take to get ANY response to your question). Others have already advised you to seek veterinary treatment for your cat ASAP. You are obligated and legally required to do so. Withholding proper and necessary medical treatment for your pet is severe neglect that can result in death to your cat--as well as charges against you for cruelty toward animals. I hope you are reading this AFTER you took your cat (if she really exists) to a veterinary hospital or emergency treatment facility.

If this a farce (it sounds too absurd to be true), I doubt anyone here finds it even the least bit humorous or entertaining. [If/when you have a cat, finding a reasonably priced vet makes more sense than seeking a cheap thrill.]
