Hey everyone, just wondering if anyone can give me some advice on an issue that one of my roommates and I have. Her cat has been sick with an upper respiratory infection for a really long time and need meds, but she refuses to take her to a vet. She has NEVER taken her, and doesn't ever plan on taking her. Because of the illness, you can tell that she is feeling like crap all the time, she is listless, sneezing, and has a pretty bad ulcer on one of her eyes. The really big problem is that we are having someone new move into our house, who also has a cat. The cat is contagious, so there is a huge chance that the new one will get sick as well, and even if she gets her cat checked out by a vet and given antibiotics, he cat will continue to get infected by the untreated one. I have told her how many problems that this could cause, but she really seems to not care at all. The cat is 14, has about 5 or 6 teeth, because they have rotted out of her mouth, and is still feeding her dry food. The girl would rather buy drugs with any extra money that she has, rather than take care of the animal that she is responsible for. She says that if I want to take her cat to the vet and pay for it myself I can go right ahead, but she won't "pay some doctor to stick her cat with needles". I can't even talk to her now because I am so disappointed in her. Any advice would be appreciated greatly!
