Happy Christmas Mr Bloody Vet - Poor Oakley, Poorer Me

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

- Tom Winnifrith

I thought that some Doctors were greedy but vets! Ouch. My oldest cat Oakley has a bit of a problem. And so the old boy ( pictured in his red black moriah) had to go to the vets today. Consultation and a couple of tests …that will be £220. Ouch. But it gets worse.

He has a tumour. It is benign but growing and is now affecting his leg and causing droplets of blood to fall on the carpet. An operation is needed urgently. That will be another £600. Ouch and double ouch.

Overall this is about three to four hours of vet time and I am £820 worse off. That will pay for the Christmas party at the vets. Some might say that, given that Oakley is now eleven, this is not a good long term investment. Clearly it is not. Pets are very expensive but is there an alternative?

As for the vet… has he not listened to our dear leader Mr Cameron? Does he not know that we are all in it together?
